Since Steve Blake went to the Los Angeles Lakers three years ago, the former Maryland point guard had rarely been much of a factor - first playing behind Derek Fisher, then Ramon Sessions and finally this season behind Steve Nash. Many Lakers fans felt as if the team had spent way too much when it signed Blake to a four-year, $16 million contract. There were times when Blake's looked like he was playing in the Bermuda Triangle rather than the Triangle offense under Phil Jackson and later Mike Brown.

L.A. comes out ahead Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel The city of Los Angeles was the biggest winner at the trade deadline. The Clippers and Lakers both made deals that moved them closer to competing with the Thunder. The Clippers acquired Nick Young from the Wizards for almost nothing (Brian Cook and a second-round pick). Young gives them another scorer in the backcourt to help offset the loss of Chauncey Billups. The Lakers made similar progress with the acquisition of point guard Ramon Sessions.

If Phil's back, LA rolls Josh Robbins Orlando Sentinel Get ready for a three-peat, Los Angeles. The Lakers should be considered the favorites to win a third consecutive NBA title next June as long as Phil Jackson returns as head coach. The nucleus of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum, Lamar Odom and Ron Artest is under contract for the 2010-11 season. Bynum should be healthy. Even if Derek Fisher retires, Mitch Kupchak should be able to find a point guard to fill the void.

Lakers will pursue both K.C. Johnson Chicago Tribune There's a chance both could land there, which begs another question: Wasn't the new collective bargaining agreement supposed to promote more competitive balance and limit players' power over movement? Oops. Chris Paul is the more likely option since he has already told Hornets management he won't sign an extension. No team can afford to lose a player of Paul's value for nothing. Though massive speculation exists that Dwight Howard will reach the same conclusion, there is no official word from Howard or the Magic to this point yet. The Lakers aggressively will enter both sweepstakes in an attempt to get younger and more athletic.

LOS ANGELES - Derek Fisher was among the first of the Los Angeles Lakers to emerge from yesterday's film session and walk onto the court at the Staples Center, where he and his teammates will play the Portland Trail Blazers tonight in Game 7 of the NBA's Western Conference finals. What went among the beleaguered Lakers behind closed doors? Did Lakers coach Phil Jackson give up his Zen approach for someone more along the lines of, say, Bob Knight? Did Shaquille O'Neal threaten bodily harm - or at least what he did to Portland's Scottie Pippen in Friday's 103-93defeat - to any guard that didn't get him the ball?

LOS ANGELES - On the surface, things were normal here in the City of Angels yesterday. A blanket of smog hung over the San Fernando Valley. Traffic came to a crawl on the Santa Monica Freeway. Actresses got face lifts. But underneath the calm veneer, the city's civic confidence shook like a palm tree in a 7.0 Richter scale earthquake, all thanks to the end of the 19-game regular- and postseason win streak of their mighty Lakers, in Game 1 of the NBA championship series Wednesday night.

Steve Blake had been through the process several times in his seven-year NBA career: the declaration of free agency, postseason negotiations between his longtime agent and teams interested in signing the former Maryland point guard, starting over in a new city with a new team, and a new set of expectations. This time, Blake acknowledges, was different. How often does a player who has averaged less than eight points and five assists for his career get pursued by a two-time defending NBA champion and personally welcomed by the league's most accomplished star?
