Yesterday the Sydney Kings of Australia’s National Basketball League welcomed their new signing, former NBA point guard Steve Blake.
At 36 years old, Blake understands that he is in the twilight of his basketball career and hopes to use the challenge of another country and another league to help him re-join an NBA roster in time for the Playoffs.
The Sydney Kings currently sit on top of the NBL ladder with a 4-1 record and with Blake joining the team, they now find themselves the favourites to take home the title. Blake’s first game in Kings colours comes this Sunday, 30th October against the Brisbane Bullets.
Believe The Hype caught up with him for a chat about joining the Sydney Kings, his role with the team, the current state of the point guard position and insights into his thoughts on this potentially being his final season of professional basketball.
