OK, it is funny enough that Steve Blake and Jason Terry fought each other because those guys seem so mild-mannered. But when you’re watching this fight and you see that the Lakers are almost entirely unconcerned with holding back Steve Blake — despite his MMA training – that he ends up wandering up to Terry a minute after it all started and no one even cares, that’s when the laughs really start happening. Everybody on the court is like, “Relax Steve Blake, you’re not going to do anything. Fix your beard.”
That being said, no matter how many fake MMA fights Steve Blake’s done, I can’t say I disagree with the decision to focus more on controlling Matt Barnes. I mean, who would you rather fight? Exactly.
