because he's too busy making commercials, rather than practicing his free throws.

Flake Flippin.

Dude's had like 3 off seasons to improve his mechanics, handles, and post moves, and still shows no results.

Remember when people claimed him to be the best PF in da league? Doe...

Clips should trade for Elton Brand and he can mentor Blake.

I don't think he was ever regarded as the #1 PF (among those that aren't mentally disabled) but he was ranked pretty damn high at one point.

Jordan Hill would out hustle him ten times out of ten. That's what Jordan Hill does.

He's not soft, but....

A) He has no skill(no jumper, no post moves other than just trying to overpower his guy)

and

B) he is undersized. Not in terms of height, but he isn't long at all, so he will never be able to be a dominant rim protector or defensive player.

Bad combination at the NBA level. He'll be irrelevant in 5 years(if he isn't already now). Enjoy the hops while they last because that's the only thing keeping him in the league.

Well said. Dude needs to learn a post move or get a jumper. Its the first game of the season but Blake still looks lk the same player as last year. even DJ kind of showed places of improvement

Blake seems to do only one move on the post, that quick spin, and no counter move. A jumper would do wonders for him but still a work in progress.

Maybe you should stop messing with flaccid gingers then.

Same old story with Blake he will put up cool stats with a high FG% and everyone who is a box score hero will think he's great and a superstar but reality his impact on the game was less than every big not named Williams who got significant playing time.

His game is still not built for the playoffs, if they could trade for Kevin Love than DJ and Love would be a fairly nice combo.

Thats a solid PF move obviously, quick spin, panic, launch a one handed floater thing

And Jordan Hill is a beast Play him more MDA
