With Sessions, he would not have gotten many minutes, I suppose, but I would keep him just for the locker room.
What does Hill bring to the table? Is he really better than McRoberts, who doesn't get much burn anyway?
There is that intangible and at first I thought about a Perkins like backlash, but Fisher really hasn't done anything of significance since June 2010. Perk on the other hand was a vital part of the Celtics defense along with KG. If Kobe can't pick up the slack on the leadership end of things then he doesn't deserve to win another ring.
