Found November 06, 2012 on Fox Sports West:
After getting fined 25,000 by the NBA for inappropriate language directed toward a fan, Steve Blake met with the fan and his father, longtime court-side ticket-holder Steve Jackson, at the team's practice facility on Tuesday. "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." Video of the incident can be seen here. Blake noted that he got caught up in the moment, frustrated the Lakers were losing their third-straight game to start the season. "It was an emotional game for me," he said. "It was a spur-of-the-moment bad decision." Blake said he wasn't happy with the fine but said he understood why the NBA levied it. "That's not what I want to be known for," he said. "They are great people and they didn't deserve that type of interaction." -Eric Pincus
