Let me just say first: Ouch!

Lakers backup guard Steve Blake will be out three weeks after puncturing his left foot stepping on those spike strips used to keep cars from exiting through the entrance of a parking lot.

What I really can’t wait to find out is exactly how this happened. How exactly do you step on one of those wearing cheap flip flops (or whatever happened)?

Three weeks means Blake will be a spectator for the first part of training camp. Great news Lakers fans, less Steve Blake means more Chris Duhon in the rotation… wait, did I say good news? Sorry about that. At least there is still Steve Nash.
