Steve Blake to Start Over Ramon Sessions ‘for the Foreseeable Future’

Ramon Sessions may have every Laker fan excited about his arrival in the purple and gold, but according to head coach Mike Brown, no one should expect to see Sessions in the starting lineup anytime soon. Per the Inside News: “Steve Blake started his second straight game as the Lakers’ point guard, with Ramon Sessions serving as his backup Sunday against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center. It’s likely to stay that way for the rest of the season, coach Mike Brown said. At least that’s Brown’s plan, anyway. ‘Right now, Steve Blake is my starting point guard, and he’s my starting point guard for the foreseeable future until there’s a time I think I need to make a change and right now I don’t see a time right now, but who knows?’ Brown said. Is that because Brown likes Blake as his starter or Sessions as a backup? ‘Both,’ Brown said. ‘Basically, Steve Blake has taken Derek Fisher’s spot and Ramon Sessions has taken Steve Blake’s spot,’ Brown added.”

    How, exactly, did Lakers management pick this guy over both Adelman and Brian Shaw?

    Everything I don’t like about Brown wrapped up in one ridiculous quote: “right now, Steve Blake is my starting point guard, and he’s my starting point guard for the foreseeable future until there’s a time I think I need to make a change and right now I don’t see a time right now, but who knows?”

    lmao @ Dagger. Yeah I have been ok with brown until this, he also said he wants Sessions to ‘get to grips with the intricacies of the offence’, the problem is that there are absolutely NO intricacies of the Lakers offence and that’s why sessions needs to be out there as a creator. The only good reason to have him on the bench is as a shot in the arm for the awful bench play we have seen at times for LA.

    What was the point of getting Sessions then? He’ll be starting in a couple games.

    Grimace lmao, reminds me of the play places with that giant purple…uhm…what exactly was he? where you could crawl inside until supposedly some fat kid got stuck and died in the hamburglar. That was when McDonald’s toys were the sh!t, remember the burger that transformed into a burger with feet? or the shake that turned into a shake with feet, or the fries that..wow i guess i was easily amused as a child.fml

    What’a nut job.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Yeah…. Naww, go ahead and start Sessions.

    Mike Brown basically saying “I love defense as a coach, but I like my starting group to have a big huge gaping whole defensively”

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com Seth

    I don’t always love defense. But when I do, I like my starters to have a gaping whole defensively.

  • abaci

    @shutup lol thank you for that post

  • http://slamonline house

    LOL @ Seth, couldn’t have said it better myself.

    I am convinced Mike Brown doesn’t have a clue what he is doing.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Stepfan, maybe if Fisher resigns with the Lakers this year then he’ll know what he’s doing?

  • Raseven7

    Mike Brown is an idiot

  • KoBynum716

    I rather have had Frank Hamblen or Jim Cleamons take over as HC when Buss decided not to hire Shaw or Adelman. But Buss goes straight for Mr. Potato Head and his “family environment”. Worst coach ever.

    i wonder if the same thing would have happen if they had actually traded for dwight.

  • Justin G.

    Fisher can’t re-sign with the Lakers until July 1. They got rid of that 30 day re-signing clause in the new CBA

  • http://www.facebook.com/joe.l.brewer3 BlackPhantom

    ….Just f*ckin start him, we wouldn’t have traded for him if we didn’t want him to start, you freakin’ idiot. See…. if only Jim Buss had at least 3/4s of a brain he wouldn’t have hired him.
