would he have been the better choice than blake or just the same? i think ridnour shouldve been picked instead, cheaper and also he had a decent season that year than blake. just wondering

Well before we picked him up I think Blake was a better 3 point shooter though I could be wrong but I think Ridnour was and is a better ball handler, finisher, and play maker while still being a decent or good outside shooter. So in hindsight I think we should have gotten Ridnour over Blake but oh well I was happy to get Blake at the time.

Ridnour isn't tentative while on the floor. If I had known Blake was going to turn into a guy that twitches every time he has an open look or lane to the basket, I wouldn't have been as happy with the signing as I was. We basically picked up a guy who is on his way to being another Derek Fisher.

yeah, i was happy too when we got blake over ridnour. but then ridnour started playing better and shooter after that.. been looking at ridnour's stats from time to time and i think he was handling himself very well with the wolves, but oh well.. :cry:

Lmao I was thinking about this a few days ago. Obviously now knowing what Blake brings to the table Ridnour may have been the best choice in hindsight. Then again I can think of many players I'd would rather the Lakers spent 4 million on then Blake. Oh well you win some you lose some.

idk how he isnt the exact same as fisher.. all he can do is spot up, thats it.... .. :cry:

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

I was also happy when we first got Blake but know I hate that we still have Blake. He brings nothing positive to the team when was on the floor
To be honest when he got hurt I was happy to see what else we had but from the grace of God he returned early.

Hindsight is a bourgeois indulgence that no true child of the revolution should partake in Comrade. Instead we must devote ourselves to hard work so we may achieve the dream of our perect society.

If we picked up Luke Ridnour instead of Steve Blake, Kobe would of rejuvenated to teen form and
the league would have to deal with 15+ more years of Kobe domination.

I wish he was Derek fisher. Fisher was never shy and just launched whenever he felt like it

Blake is on his way to Luke Walton

I actually thought steve blake was going to be a good pick up considering I thought he had played well in Portland... but after these last two years of him playing like crap has made me change my mind COMPLETELY
