Steve Blake Reflects On Time In LA, Moments After He Was Traded

After the news broke that the Los Angeles Lakers were closing in on a deal with the Golden State Warriors, Steve Blake was already changing out of his Lakers warm-ups and into his street clothes. As it usually happens, he had no idea he was going to get traded.

I had no idea. I was in my warm-ups. I was in my uniform. I was ready to go.” Steve Blake told reporters as he was exiting Staples Center. “It’s a tough situation but it is what it is and I’m ready to start something new.”

With the exception of Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol, Blake was the longest tenured Laker on the team, signed in 2010. The good news for Blake is that he’s joining a playoff contending team, where he could easily find himself fitting into the role similar to Jarrett Jack last season. Though Blake wasn’t certain about how he’d fit in at Golden State, he did say he had a lot of respect for the Warriors.
