Steve Blake wants us all to know that he retains the toughest white guard in the league title. Faried admitted as much to taking a little bit of a flop on this one to get the refs full attention on what turned out to be a flagrant foul but I think that speaks to Faried maybe being a fake tough guy than Blake's personality.
Anyway, this clip got me thinking of some of Steve Blake's past altercations. So here's a little rundown of them (I can't believe he's been in the league since the 2003-2004 season, just goes to show you that grit and toughness can give a guy an NBA career).
At the University of Maryland in practice fight with John Gilchrist. I had totally forgotten about this one but it's pretty good because it's the only one that actually included any punches.
Steve Blake vs. Jason Terry.
A little cheap-y push by Jason Terry and Steve comes back with his patented slow walk, scowl, and face-to-face trash-talking.
Steve Blake vs. Dwight Howard
Dwight is so soft it's unreal. AmIRight Kobe?
But maybe my favorite Steve Blake moment of all-time, when he stole ball from Jay Williams going into halftime at the height of the Maryland-Duke rivalry.
