2003 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Defensively Blake shows quick hands and great anticipation skills to disrupt passing lanes for steals ... His superior court vision allows him to see the floor like few can ... When his feet are set he is a solid 3-point shooter... Has a lot of qualities you look for in a point guard: leadership, intelligence, poise and a solid grasp of the fundamentals ... Above average ball handler who does a great job of protecting the ball... Solid free throw shooter... Although he isn't the quickest player Blake makes up for it with his savvy and intensity ... Gym rat who possess a solid work ethic to improve ... Controls the tempo of a game like few can at his position ... Does a great job of getting teammates involved in the offense with his distribution ... Rebounds well for a point guard due to his decently long arms and toughness ... Mid-range shooting has become more consistent this past year... One of those players who does more than the numbers indicate ...

Weakness: Defensively Blake's average lateral quickness tends to hurt him when having to defend quicker guards ... Offensively he has problems creating scoring opportunities for himself... To compound matters he isn't all that great of a penetrator... This is due to his lack of explosiveness which doesn't allow for him to gain good separation from his defender... Still isn't all that great when having to shoot off the dribble from mid-range ... Will need to clean up his shooting mechanics on his jump shot as his release isn't fluid ... Still not all that comfortable when having to shoulder some of scoring load ... His lack of athleticism could catch up with him in the NBA ... Will need to develop more upper body strength and weight to his physique ... Tends to force passes that aren't there which can lead to turnovers ...
