Lakers News: Steve Blake Discusses ‘Great Friendship’ With Kobe

The trade deadline passed on Thursday, and the only move that the Lakers were involved with was a trade to the Golden State Warriors that sent over Steve Blake in exchange for guards Marshon Brooks and Kent Bazemore. Earlier today, Kobe took to Twitter to vent about the team’s decision to trade Blake. He saw Blake as a close friend and fierce competitor just like him.

According to Yahoo’s Marc J. Spears, it appears the new Warrior misses his former teammate as well. Before his debut with Golden State, Steve Blake spoke to the media and talked about Bryant:

Kobe and I had a great friendship while I was there. He’s one of the best teammates I’ve ever had. I’m definitely going to miss him. I appreciate his support throughout the years. I can’t lie, I’m going to miss him.

Earlier on Thursday, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak explained the move as a chance for the younger Laker point guards to get more playing time. Developing Jordan Farmar and Kendall Marshall seem to be a move the Laker brass wants to take, and Steve Nash’s future is unknown at the moment.

When Blake left Staples Center Wednesday night, he shared that he might be open to returning to the Lakers should they want the point guard back. Blake’s contract is set to expire at the end of this season and may be an option for the Lakers.

    If Nash leaves, then I would definitely try and resign him. He literally carried the team towards the end of last season. And thats something guys like Marshall and Farmar and the rest of these young guys need to learn, and thats heart!

    • Jerel

      literally carried the team? They’re literally too heavy for that.

  • Jay

    Stop using the passive voice so much in your writing. Almost every sentence is passive and it detracts from the article.

    Everyone but Nash knows what Nash’s future holds. As soon as Howard left, having Nash around was pointless. Players, like party guests, need to recognize when it is time to go.

  • Chrmngblly

    When Kobe and Meeks get back we will have a logjam at the 2. Can either of these guys play the point?

    • Mark

      I’d hate to say it, but I wonder if Meeks would head elsewhere for more money in free agency. We’ll see how this all pans out in the summer though.

  • Sam

    So now we have Marshall, Farmar, and maybe Nash at point…. but we have Meeks, Henry, Young, Bazemore, Brooks, and later Kobe at shooting guard….

    • Chrmngblly

      I think they expect Meeks, Young and Henry to move on or be tempted. They all can play the 3 and Kobe can play the point, if necessary.
