Kobe Bryant, Steve Blake

LA’s lone move involved sending point guard Steve Blake to Golden State in return for Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks, but it was primarily a salary dump and a minor one at that since Blake only stands to make $4 million this year against the cap.

Steve Nash Throws A Nasty Behind-The-Back Dime To Steve Blake

Steve Nash

Everyone forgot about Steve Nash. After a pretty forgettable first season with the Lakers, the soon-to-be 40-year-old barely made our list of the 20 best point guards in the NBA. Unfair? Well, 12.7 points and 6.7 assists per game aren’t numbers that scream anything other than average. But Nash should have a bigger year this year, considering Dwight Howard is gone and Kobe Bryant will be out for much of the season. Read More »
