Probably a good time to drain it, with a few days rest.

Blake just looks way more confidant this season

This dude has had the task of leading us in scoring and basically guarding our opponents best players every night.

All while having a burst bursa sac. Has Blake somehow officially become the most underrated player in the league?

Does it concern anyone else that Blake has had 2 meniscus repairs that took pieces of them out? I wonder id this caused his preseason issues.

What preseason issues?

Here a report about BG's elbow. Doesn't sound like a big deal as it's something he's had since high school. He won't do surgery because that can lead to arthritis. Looks like he's not interested in using the sleave again:

Sleeves are nothing more than placebos. They don't do anything really.

^ Right. He basically said it was to hide the bump.

Blake has to be the most uncoordinated player to ever average 20ppg. Its really a miracle.

He'll probably be under 20ppg soon though. He looks clueless at times. Makes Jason Thompson look like Moses Malone.

Blake has the highest ceiling, but I would love him to take that next step and be truly dominant. I'm not a fan of him settling for jumpers, he could be dominant in the post. He does need to focus on creating his own shot. His numbers are nice, that isn't issue.

It was beyond frustrating watching Jamal Crawford isos in the 4th. To see Blake just stand by the 3pt line was just sad.

Then the most frustrating thing about Blake is he teases with potential. He'll make a beautiful left hand hook or fadeaway j in one gm, and you won't see him make those shots again 4 wks

I think Blake's game has stepped up a notch this season but clearly as DA says he has a very high ceiling. I think he will continue to improve and Doc will speed along that process a bit.

Blake needs to work with Hakeem over the summer because he really needs to polish up his footwork.

He also needs to work on his pick and roll game and really establish his sweet spots on the floor. He doesn't have a real go to move and if we force feed him he ends ups making two many moves and putting up an off balance shot.

He will be okay just really needs to sharpen his fundamentals

I'm surprised Blake's free throw shooting regressed after last year. Thought he could be around 70 percent this year. Hope that improves, bc we can barely carry one terrible free throw shooter in DJ

He stepped up on the FT line last night when it counted.

I like that he improved his 15 ft jumper but I don't think that should be his bread - n- butter. I think he should be down low banging because we have no offensive presence down low. I agree with Barkely's comment about when Blake is down low with only 1 defender, he should attack. Blake would benefit from learning fundamenals from Hakeem only if he is willing to go down low and bang. As long as Blake is satisfied with his outside shot, we will never see him take over the game in 4th qtr and win a game for us. He will remain a role player in crunch time.

I think the only thing keeping him from taking over down the stretch is hesitation. He's shown many times he can his free throws in the clutch. We've seen him hit a big jumper down or two down the stretch. He hit one last night...but then he missed one simply because he hesitated. I think he still wants to go inside, which is a good instinct through most of the game. However in clutch time sometimes you gotta take the easier shot. I think Blake can do that, but he has to be decisive.

I agree. I wonder if the indecisiveness is not knowing whether to shoot from outside, to take it inside, or just intimidated by the "moment"

Well sure. But some count more than others. And Blake tends to hit when the game's on the line.

Blake looks more and more like the rookie Blake with a jumpshot.

Its only been 17 games. He has lots of time to improve that FT%.
