After last Friday’s loss to the Clippers, guard Steve Blake was fined $25,000 for bad language directed towards a fan on the sidelines. On Wednesday, Steve was able to meet the fan and his father, who is the longtime ticket holder Steve Jackson, at the Lakers practice facility.
“We got a chance to speak and talk about the situation,” said Blake. “I just let him know that I was sorry for the way I acted. I didn’t handle myself the way I wanted to. We were able to talk and hopefully build a relationship off of that.”
Blake, typically known as a reserved guy, is one of the very last players on this Lakers squad you would expect to engage a fan in trash talk during a game. We wouldn’t be surprised if this is the very last time we see anything like this from Blake.
