    Default [Article]The NBA WORST starting point guard is...

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    One day while you’re chatting it up with your buddies ask them if they know anything about Steve Blake. You will probably get a strange look or response from them. It may vary from who is that or what about him ? I follow the NBA with great interest and kind of know who’s who in the league. The reason on this day I am writing about Steve Blake is because of what I perceive as a problem on one of the most talented teams in the NBA. In my opinion I believe the Trailblazers with a healthy Oden could win an NBA title in 2 years or so. It doesn’t take a zillion years to go from the bottom to the top . Just look at the Boston Celtics. The Celtics won because of the trio of Garnett, Pierce, and Allen. Rajon Rondo only needed to be competent.

    I think the Trailblazers are waiting and hoping Steve Blake becomes John Stockton , Steve Nash or Mark Price. Sometimes in life you have to come to a realization. The Bobcats have come to the conclusion that Adam Morrison is a bust. It happens. In watching Trailblazer games every now and then on TV it is clearly evident that Blake just isn’t any good. He is the second coming of Bobby Hurley. Hurley was a great college player, and a disappointing pro. The problem with Blake is this he is too slow, too weak, and not a good outside shooter. On a team with as much talent as Portland has they need someone who can break down his defender and be able to stick an outside J.

    Luke Ridnour would have been perfect for this team. I think he would have been a better fit for the New York Knicks instead of Chris Duhon. Duhon is the east coast version of Steve Blake with the exception that he is much stronger than Blake. All the frontcourt talent in the world cannot make up for the fact that your floor leader has so many flaws. At the University of Maryland Blake was a player who a casual observer would have concluded could be a very good pro. I think too many folks believe that because a player receives a multi million dollar contract he is really good. Maybe the Blazers believed trading Jarrett Jack to the Pacers was the right thing to do. I think they will find themselves on the outside looking in unless they make a bold move . Maybe taking Stephon Marbury off the Knicks hands. Time will tell if they are contenders or pretenders.

    Please don't tell this to D'Antoni - he thinks Duhon is the next coming of Steve Nash! lol

    ^ The funny thing is we have better options at PG in Marbury and also at SF in Chandler....you'd think with one of the better coaches in the L in D'Antoni he'd realize that

    A lot of the haterburys have their head gassed by this 3-2 start, but what they fail to acknowledge is that all of the Knicks' 3 wins come against sub .500 teams or handicapped teams. When the Knicks play the Jazz and Spurs, let's see if they can get away with only getting 5 points from Duhon and Richardson.

    i agree with you a hundred percent we seem good but were not as good as we think....every game we've won we've had a big league and we blew it each time vs the Heat it was 20+ and we let back in the game vs the Bobcats we had a 14 point lead and blew it and vs vs the Injured Wizards we had at least and 11 point lead and blew it the over.500 teams will capitalize on that not even bringing up the elite teams. we need Marbury i the games its our only hope of being competitive later on in the year, Duhon wont get us anywhere. I wish our record was as good as it looks but it isnt.

    Westbrook will **** all over Duhon on both side of the ball he will drive past him like hes nothing and he'll harass him on the defense Duhon will never get inside the 3-point line. even his stats are better he's averaging 10.5 ppg and 44 percent from beyond the arc.

    The knicks are ranked 22nd in the league in field goal percentage...Not a great shooting team...

    However, they do lead the league in assists per game and have one of the higher asst to turnover ratios.

    wow i'm actually surprised this is posted.

    Duhon in his career is nothing on marbury.

    But

    Now we sit at 3-2, and yet we are still making excuses that these were not good teams. The heat beat the spurs today!, we killed the heat. There isn't a whole lot between the 5th-20th best team, which I suspect we'l be in.

    Duhon got 12 assists, and 0 turnovers. A great game. He is average over 6 assists this season, and knicks players are having their best season.

    eg. Nate, Chandler, Randolph.

    Why the **** would we want to change this?

    The starbury era in ny is i'm sad to say ended. Duhon is on a short contract, and knows that next year a pg will likely be targeted in the draft

    Duhorn has been distributing the rock well lately but still i think Westbrook is better theres no competition between them...the knicks when they on fire dont miss...an Duhon is good but shouldnt be a starter and def not starting over Marbury

    True but they looked like **** in the end. Parker went down in the first quarter. The Spurs had 3 rookies on the court through a lot of the second half. Even though the Heat were up by as much as 24 in the second half they still let a team of scrubs (besides Mason who is a stud) climb within single digits in the 4th. They were impressive early but overall it was eh. Shawn Marion is probably the most overrated player in the league btw.

    theknicks3 i wouldnt bank us winning vs the spurs only cause the heat beat them and we beat the heat...the spurs will be the spurs im scared cause Parker gonna run laps on Duhon and Duncan gonna be Dunkin' left and right with no one on our team capable of stopping him down low.
