But I do want to go on record as saying this narrative that Blake is a soft choker who never delivers in pressure situations is way overblown. Yeah, he's had some notable failure, but he's had some success too.

Since he's been actively playing for the Clippers, they've missed the playoffs only once and have won more than 50 games in every other season. They've won at least playoff services all but once.

2011-2012 - Beat Memphis round 1 in a road game 7. Both Blake and CP are banged up in that series and they go on to get worked by the Spurs in round 2.

2012-2013 - Lose to Memphis in round 1, but Blake is injured before game 5, only plays a few minutes in that game and doesn't play at all in game 6, when Memphis clinches.

2013-2014 - Beat GSW in the first round in seven games. Blake plays really well. Lose to OKC in round 2 in 6. Blake again plays well. It was really a 3 minute meltdown by CP in game 5 that cost the Clippers that series.

2014-2015 - Beat the defending champ Spurs in round 1 in 7. Blake has an awesome series. The Rockets series . . . yeah not much to say there. The whole team choked.

The Clippers wouldn't have won 3 playoff series in 7 games during Blake's tenure if he never delivered in the clutch. Yes, I think he can get better in those situations. But he's not nearly as bad as people on here make him out to be. The way people talk on here, its like the Clippers are the only team that ever fails in the playoffs. Only 1 team wins the title each year. So, there are a bunch of other guys who are supposedly way more clutch than Blake that are also not getting done each year.

I thought this discussion was over after what Draymond did without Curry again. Draymond is a great player, but he's not someone you build around. Simple as that. I don't even think it should be an argument. Even though I don't think he's better than Blake in terms of being a cornerstone for a franchise, I do think if you swapped both players the Clippers would be better and GSW would be worse. Why? Because everything the Clippers lack, Draymond would bring. The intangibles, the defense, more spacing, etc. I don't think he's going to go there and put up 20/10 because I don't think teams will trap CP3 as hard as they trap Curry off the p&r. However, I think his impact will more so be an intangible thing than flat out production.

Its pretty obvious GSW would have to change some things if they had Blake, unless Blake somehow became a 40% 3 point shooter and could defend the 1-5.

Because you can't choke on soft?

Klay scoring off this year, but who cares.  As long they are winning right?

post #38018 of 93193
As long as they're winning, Klay is the best Shooting Guard in the NBA.... right?

But if Klay is a better defender than Curry, wouldn't that make him thee best shooting Guard in the NBA over Curry?

Actually, people choke on peanut butter fairly regularly and it's pretty soft.

Not the best shooting guard, but maybe the best defensive guard in the NBA. However, that is not true because Klay is not the best defensive guard in the NBA.

I think that perception of blake is because there are times where he so blatantly wants absolutely nothing to do with the outcome of the game. Like if he had the option to run to the tunnel and hide in his locker under some sheets he would. It's even worse than when lebron would "make the right play" and avoid game winners. Blake has looked completely frightened of big moments and it probably overshadows his clutch moments

No need be so precision. At the G spot for daily leagues, I plug Curry over Klay.

Most would pick Curry for obvious reasons.

He has had that rap before, but I think the Clippers repeated failures have magnified that impression of him. Don‘t think you can necessarily put it all on him though.

His stats speaks for itself, but if you aren‘t winning as a team, you are often looked by the media n hype.
