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.”
