Steve Blake, Evan Turner

Perhaps it’s because we used to watch him tear up the ACC for Maryland, but we’re never surprised when Steve Blake shows off skills that belie his neighbor next door exterior.

But perhaps the biggest problem with Blake’s departure is how close he was with Kobe Bryant, who took to Twitter to voice his disgruntlement with the move. Read More »
