Lakers Practice VIDEOS: Kobe To Exceed Expectations With Blake Out

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The Los Angeles Lakers received unfortunate news this morning that point guard Steve Blake is expected to miss six weeks with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The injury actually occurred in the second half of the Lakers game in Washington on Nov. 26, and Blake had been playing through the pain for the past six games. Blake even switched to shooting with his left hand in practice, which he had translated to game action.

With Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar out, the Lakers relied on Blake to facilitate the offense. Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni will now look to Kobe Bryant, who has only played in two games since April, to facilitate the offense. Jodie Meeks will also need to step up in the starting spot in the Lakers back court for their upcoming roadtrip.

    I’m alternately amused and horrified by this idea that when Raymond Felton goes down for the Knicks, a trade package for Kyle Lowry is immediately put together, but when the Lakers lose not one, not two, but all three of their point guards…Kobe Bryant is designated for the position!
    This is either a testament to how amazingly versatile Kobe is, or how singularly unwilling the Lakers are towards altering their roster. It seems to me that the team is CLEARLY not playing for a championship, let alone making the playoffs, this season.

      Well, Felton is the Knick’s only true point guard and Blake just went down. The plan to have Kobe at the point guard has been in place since the summer. Hence, there was no rush after Nash and Farmar went down. The other issue is Toronto’s asking price for Lowry who is an expiring contract. You don’t want to give up to much to just have him walk at the end of the season. Right now any offer that requires a future first round pick is too much.

        a trade of

        nash, 2 second rounders, and a 2019 first rounder sounds like a good starting point for the lakers

        • Terrence

          Wow, that is way too much. For one, Nash makes 3 million more than Lowry. Then you’re also throwing in 3 draft picks?!

          • cj

            yes that would be what we need to do.

            2 seconds mean very little and the first rounder is in 19 which means nothing to the lakers right now

          • youngblood

            Cj do you not understand that the lakers can’t afford to pull another trade like thehoward fiasco. Dont panic mitch will do his job

          • cj

            this is not like the howard deal. lowery is a stop gap nothing more.

    • youngblood

      Really how narrow minded can you you be as a laker fan. There aren’t any experienced pg available and nobody wants to make the lakers better so we aren’t getting any help from the league as usual!
