Steve Blake playing perhaps his best basketball as a Laker off the bench and under the tutelage of Steve Nash has been one of the Lakers bright spots since all-star break. The Laker who admitted he "wasn't 100 percent yet" has sure been playing like it. So of course on the eve of news that the full Lakers lineup shall finally be seen on Friday, Blake falls ill.
However his wife Kristen, probably a Laker fan herself dedicated her day towards taking care of her sick husband as well as the couple's sick children.
Blake later went on twitter to relay his gratitudes.

As you can see, Blake sick today. RT @SteveBlake5: Thanks @kristenblake2 for taking care of me & the kids all day while I'm sick! Love you!
Hopefully by Friday Blake will be healthy enough to continue to play at a high level that he has been of late.
But today establishes two things.
1) Blake has an awesome wife.
And 2) that Zeus is still sending lightning bolts up the rears of the jerks that sent her death threats in the off-season.
Keep being awesome Kristen, and get well soon Blake. Or "Stevie" as Steve Nash now calls him.
We can't afford for Blake to lose any effectiveness! Especially in this stretch . Get well soon. Friday morning at the earliest!
