After endless trade speculation surrounding Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill, the Los Angeles Lakers surprised a lot of people by trading veteran point guard Steve Blake on Wednesday night.

With all the attention on Gasol, Hill and the return of Dwight Howard, Blake being dealt to the Golden State Warriors was surprising to say the least.

After the loss to the Rockets, Kendall Marshall was asked about his reaction to Blake being sent to the Warriors via Time Warner Cable SportsNet:

“Personally, it was kind of a let down. First off. Steve is a great teammate. More importantly off the court. Steve is a great guy. He really embraced me when I got here. Helped me out. He works hard. I feel like the team really respected him.”

Marshall clearly learned from Blake on and off the floor. The newcomer also talked about the business of basketball:

“It’s part of the business. The downside of playing in this league.”

As a result of the Blake trade, the Lakers will receive two more young players in MarShon Brooks and Kent Bazemore. The deal may have taken many by surprise, but it will likely work out in the Lakers favor with more youth on the roster to along with a lucrative contract being sent elsewhere.
