Default Baby Rondo shines

Sessions is awesome. He deserves a nickname. Right now I'm calling him baby rondo. Can't believe we got this guy for Luke Walton, essentially.

Part of my motivation for the nickname "baby rondo" is to taunt the celtics. We literally acquired ramon sessions in exchange for luke walton. this is bigger than the Gasol heist, and is therefore a great dis to the Celtics organization to call him "baby rondo." we didn't have to give up gasol or bynum for our young explosive stat-compiling point guard. WE GOT HIM FOR........LUKE WALTON.

I've actually been thinking about the lakers celtics rivalry. I feel like it only exists when both teams are significantly above .500

I feel that lately I can watch celtics games, and enjoy their style of basketball. Especially how Rondo plays. He's the best half court PG in the game today in my humble opinion. Watch Sessions reminds me a bit of how Rondo plays. They are both true and traditional point guards. Neither of them chuck, they are pass first, second, third, and fourth point guards, and score only when they need to.

I don't see why we can call Sessions baby Rondo, seeing that Sessions is not yet near the caliber of Rondo....keep in mind, I said yet. I feel that as Sessions gets more comfortable in this system, we can truly see another Rondo. Keep in mind that Sessions is playing with guys that are as good as the Celtic's big three a few years ago. These guys will help him get better, and get used to playing a certain way for the duration of his career.

Gosh its so amazing that Sessions is only 25.

Much Much Better

The Celtics ruined my childhood in the 60's. You guys have no idea how awful it was to have the same gloating bunch of A-holes beating you every year......like a never ending nightmare.....be very glad you are young. I do not wear green.
I respect their organization but I hate them and always will.

Baby Rondo hell to the NO...sorry I just hate the Celtic...But what ever name we come up with I love this Dude game. Dude is so smooth and undercontrol on the court and makes everybody around him better like Pau, Matt and Mcrob. Personally he reminds me of Gray Payton only different is one always running there month and the other is quite, but has the same effect on a team.

With that said why not call him RockSmooth (RS)

Why on earth would you want to nickname him after a Celtics orc?

I don't like Mini-mamba either for goudelock...every man should have their own nickname.

Baby Rondo? Mini-Mamba? How the hell do you guys come up with that sh it? And does he need a nickname? Sessions sounds cool anyways.

Looks like the Lakers championship run is...
*Puts on Sunglasses*

In Session.

it is insult to compare sessions to Rondo.

You know Rondo has no scoring ability whatsoever?
