The way Sessions and Blake have been playing defense is
If only we had Gerald Green right now

You know I was hoping we picked up Gerald Green But whats you take on Sessions lately, dude seem to have cooled off and as I stated before confused in what to do with Bynum and Gasol pugging up everything.

Sessions is playing injured I believe.

Yeah, Sessions is playing with a shoulder injury.....but that has little to do with his defense.

Should he start in game 2? Maybe he would do a better job against Durant.

It's certainly worth a try. I wouldn't start him but would be quick to get him in if things weren't going well.

Sessions cooled off a bit, and you probably have the lakers to make sure of that. Watching a late regular season game, I heard the announcers say that the older guys on the team had a "talk" with Ramon Sessions saying "you need to slow down the tempo". That right there pisses me off, because the reason we brought Sessions to this team was for his skills and IQ. One of his talents is his speed, which allowed us to get many easy transition points.

Now that is gone because he definitely has slowed it down, in a manner I would consider to be unreasonable. I think he should do his thing. If Mike Brown wanted a running team, Sessions would have given him that. But then you got these geezer players...

No. They told him to slow down because he was outrunning the transition into the teeth of the defense and turning it over because he had no outlet. You run when you have somebody to run with or you're ahead of the defense you don't run into 5 defenders. That's ok though he's young and has never played with this level of talent around him or had this type of talent at his disposal, or played at this level of competition with this much pressure on him, he'll learn.

We should let him continue to run, just tell him not to force it if it's not there.
We/He were at our best when he was running and creating things.
Why not put the onus on lazy ass players to run the floor with him.....at least the young fit players.....we need the easy points since we have no organized offense.
