Veteran point guard Steve Blake was very happy to play for the Los Angeles Lakers and had even earned the respect of future Hall-of-Fame guard Kobe Bryant.

However, with Bryant out because of his knee injury and the Lakers going through a very poor season, they dealt Blake to the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors were looking for a player who can back up Stephen Curry and even play alongside him. Blake can do just that.

Blake will become a free agent next season and the biggest thing on his mind is winning, which is why he is open to potentially re-signing with the Warriors.

“I can’t lie,” Blake told Diamond Leung of the Contra Costa Times Friday. “I wonder where I’ll be next year. If I had the opportunity to be here, I would love it.

“I already knew from the outside that they were a special team. I didn’t realize what a great group of guys it was and how nice it is to play for Coach (Mark) Jackson. Those are all things that I’ll be looking for, for a place I’d like to finish off my career at.”

Blake is averaging 8.9 points, 6.9 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game this season.
