Twitter Reacts Poorly To Steve Blake, Wife After Lakers Lose To Thunder

So the Los Angeles Lakers just blew a seven point lead to the Oklahoma City Thunder with two minutes left. Although it was pretty much a team collapse, Lakers fans were quick to make Steve Blake the scapegoat for missing the potential game-winning three with seconds remaining from the corner.

Some Laker fans seemed to immediately forget that Blake nailed a bunch of threes in Game 7 to get the Lakers to the second round, and turned their ire not only against Steve, but his wife Kristen as well. Scapegoating Blake for this loss is pretty lame, and the hate against Blake is worse. Here's a sample of the worst reactions after the jump.

WARNING: Reactions are explicit. And awful. Very, very awful.
