Can Steve Blake Play Effectively Off The Portland Trail Blazers Bench?

Steve Blake was one of the two "big" signings the Portland Trail Blazers made in the offseason. Can he really replace Mo Williams as a key bench player for the Trail Blazers?

Steve Blake was signed to be the Mo Williams replacement, but can he be effective in that spot?

That is the million dollar question for the Portland Trail Blazers bench unit, as Blake is slated to lead that group. However, in looking at his comparison of time played both as a starter and also as a bench player, there is some concern about how effective he can be from that spot.

This Player Review also looks at how Blake stacks up to a few other veteran guards signed this offseason.

As usual, send emails to with "Mailbag" in the subject line.
