These moves in Rip City seemed to be quite minor, and seemingly ineffective to the franchise when looked...

Report: Steve Blake Agrees To Deal With Trail Blazers As West Gets Deeper

There is a very good reason LeBron James is focusing his free-agent search to teams in the Eastern Conference, and why Carmelo Anthony seems likely to stick with the New York Knicks. The path to the playoffs — not to mention past the first round — is just so much easier in the East. The West upped the overall quality of its playoff contenders Thursday with Steve Blake agreeing...

Warriors in Market for a Back-Up Guard; Some Names on Their List

No matter what happens with the still-in-the-air Kevin Love trade talks, the Warriors will be making a back-up point guard high priority. Even if they get Love, which still can happen (and could get more likely if competing offers don’t improve), the Warriors still need someone behind Stephen Curry. And Klay Thompson, while you’re at it. The Warriors aren’t bringing back Jordan...

Stephen Curry dishes insane behind-the-back pass to Steve Blake

Kobe is Mad Lakers Don’t Call Him When Teammates Are Traded

Kobe did some venting about the Lakers season to various members of the media yesterday. But, here is the one quote I found funny courtesy of Lakerholicz. Speaking of people being gone, it appears that Kobe is still a little pissed by the Steve Blake trade. “I just want to get a phone call when somebody gets traded,” Bryant said. It is clear that Kobe doesn’t think the current...

Steve Blake on Kobe Bryant: “He’s one of the best teammates I’ve ever had”

I think we can dispel all the “bad teammate” talk now. For years, Kobe Bryant has been described as a hard guy to play with. However, there’s no real evidence to backup this way of thinking. Aside from Smush Parker, who has almost made a second career from dissing Bryant, both former and current teammates rave about Kobe’s leadership qualities. Steve Blake is no different...
