Ramon Sessions

  1. Lakers are going to have to pony up to keep Sessions, Hill

    May 7, 2012, 4:03 PM EDT

    Jordan Hill

    When the Lakers traded for Ramon Sessions, the thought was long-term not short. They knew he could opt out at the end of this season and become a free agent and that they might have to pay to keep him. But the surprising play they have gotten from Jordan Hill these playoffs has given them…

  2. Lakers win in Denver to take 3-1 series lead over Nuggets, but it certainly wasn’t easy

    May 7, 2012, 1:44 AM EDT

    lakers-nuggets-game4

    It took until the game’s final few possessions, but ultimately, the outcome ended up being what we all expected. The Lakers took Game 4 from the Nuggets in Denver 92-88, but the heroes for L.A. weren’t necessarily the likely ones, and the game was anything but easy for the victors. The Lakers didn’t come close…

  3. Nuggets look to run way back into series with Lakers

    May 4, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Kenneth Faried

    The Lakers present nearly every team they face with a matchup dilemma — do you put your biggest players out there and try to match their front line size, or do you go small and try to run them out of the building. Denver is down 0-2 to the Los Angeles heading into a must-win…

  4. Hawks’ Stackhouse picks Heat to win NBA title. Bet his teammates love that.

    May 4, 2012, 12:04 AM EDT

    Jerry Stackhouse

    Sure, he’s saying what a lot of players are thinking. But you’re not supposed to say it. If you’re an NBA team in the playoffs and someone asks you who is going to win the title you name your team. So, for example, if you’re Jerry Stackhouse and you’re asked, you pick the Hawks. That’s…

  5. NBA Playoff Preview: L.A. Lakers vs. Denver Nuggets

    Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant smiles as he hands the ball back to a referee in Minneapolis

    SEASON RECORDS
 Lakers: 41-25 (3 seed) Nuggets: 38-28 (6 seed) SEASON SERIES
 The Lakers took three of the four regular season meetings from the Nuggets, with the only loss coming on New Year’s Day in Denver. All the games were close, however, with L.A.’s margin of victory never being greater than six points. KEY INJURIES…

  6. Five things to watch: Thunder-Lakers

    Apr 22, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Matt Barnes

    The playoff race is heating up and with the Lakers battling for the division and the third seed and the Thunder haggling with the Spurs over the top seed in the West, Sunday’s game is the rare late season meeting with meaning. The Lakers need to get a win to lock in no-worse than fifth…

  7. It’s official — Kobe Bryant returns to Lakers Friday

    Apr 20, 2012, 2:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    We were expecting this, but now it is official — Kobe Bryant is back for the Los Angeles Lakers Friday night when they take on the San Antonio Spurs. Kobe missed seven games, but he took part in the Friday morning team shootaround and said he would play. For a guy who was second in…

  8. Sessions wants to return to Lakers, but it’s going to cost L.A.

    Apr 17, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Ramon Sessions will tell anyone who will listen he is enjoying his time as a Laker — he has come in and provided some quickness and playmaking at the point guard the team desperately needed under new coach Mike Brown. He said he really wants to return to the Lakers next season. Just not enough…

  9. Kobe says he’ll be back “well before the playoffs”

    Apr 16, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant missed his fifth straight game Sunday due to a shin injury, but told this to ABC sideline reporter Heather Cox (via the Orange County Register): “I’ll definitely be back well before the playoffs.” Um, how would you define “well before?” The Lakers have just five games remaining before the playoffs begin. Four of…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers win fourth in a row without Kobe

    Apr 16, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while going on Craigslist to try and find the guy who got you pregnant at that Motorhead concert…. Heat 93, Knicks 85: This potential first-round matchup proved that the Heat’s three stars — they accounted for all but 20 of the Heat’s points on the day — were better than the Knicks…

  11. League sets record for D-League call-ups

    Apr 10, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    The NBA D-League made the following announcement today (h/t: iamagm.com) The NBA Development League (NBA D-League) experienced its most successful season ever in developing NBA talent as it set all-time records with 50 GATORADE Call-ups, breaking the previous record of 40 set during the 2009-10 season, and 64 NBA player assignments, surpassing the previous record…

  12. Clippers get the highlights, Lakers take win and likely division

    Apr 5, 2012, 2:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s simplistic, but not inaccurate, to see Wednesday night’s Lakers win over the Clippers like Andrew Bynum saw it. He was asked about Blake Griffin’s dunk on Pau Gasol (you can decide which one). “He can have the highlight, we’ll take the W,” Bynum said. But that W — a 113-108 win for the Lakers…

  13. Derek Fisher has moved on from Lakers trade, embracing his new role in Oklahoma City

    Mar 30, 2012, 2:47 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Russell Westbrook

    Derek Fisher returned to Staples Center on Thursday as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, his first time back since the deadline day deal the Lakers made to trade him away exactly two weeks ago. The return was a triumphant one, with his new team thrashing his old one 102-93, behind strong performances from…

  14. “New” Lakers still not as good as same ol’ Thunder

    Mar 30, 2012, 2:43 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Matt Barnes

    This was supposed to be a statement game for the “new” Lakers — new coach, new system, new emphasis on defense and now a new point guard to organize it all. The Thunder, they didn’t change much of anything from last year. Well, the game was a statement all right — the Thunder are much…

  16. Report: Kobe will push to bring Fisher, Odom back to Lakers

    Mar 28, 2012, 3:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    There is a reason players — even elite players — should not get to play general manager, too. With that thought in mind we bring you this news on the eve of Derek Fisher making his return to Los Angeles as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder — Kobe Bryant wants him back. And…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  18. Yes, Kobe Bryant sat a key stretch of fourth quarter. So?

    Mar 26, 2012, 9:35 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    With 5:45 left in Sunday night’s game and the Lakers down 14 points, coach Mike Brown sat Kobe Bryant Sunday night. He sat for the next 3:53 of a game where the Lakers were within striking distance of the Grizzlies (but never closed the gap and lost 102-93. This has caused consternation among Lakers fans…

  19. Mike Brown relents to reason, will start Ramon Sessions

    Mar 23, 2012, 5:46 PM EDT

    Ramon Sessions

    It didn’t take a scout’s eye the last few games to realize that when Ramon Sessions was on the floor, the Lakers offense was much, much better. We’ve covered all this before — with Sessions on the floor the Lakers offense has been as good as any in the league. That situation led to calls…

  21. Does Ramon Sessions make the Lakers second best in West?

    Mar 22, 2012, 2:36 PM EDT

    Ramon Sessions

    Since the day the lockout ended, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been the team to beat in the Western Conference. And while we can pick apart the Thunder’s flaws — they have gotten pushed around in the paint of late — their status as the top dog has never been in question. But who is…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Five in a row for the Knicks

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:03 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jrue Holiday

    What you missed while being thankful a rogue boulder didn’t destroy your home and car… Knicks 82, Sixers 79: This was the ugliest win for the Knicks on their five-game winning streak, but it may also be the best. Not the best because it moves them within three games of the struggling Sixers in the…

  23. It’s official: Derek Fisher joins Thunder, will play Wednesday

    Mar 21, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    This tweet from Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman says all you need to know: Derek Fisher just walked in the Thunder’s locker room. It’s what he brings to that locker room — more than on the court — that got the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign the five-time champion Derek Fisher. The team has confirmed…

  24. Monday And-1 links: LeBron, Thibodeau setting records

    Mar 19, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks off the court after the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Sunday LeBron James scored 14 points, making it 400 consecutive games he has scored in double digits. That is eighth on the all-time list. If…

  25. Kobe understands Fisher trade better than some Lakers fans

    Mar 18, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    It’s a cold business with little room for sentimentality. Derek Fisher was part of the problem for the Lakers at the point guard spot. If the Lakers were going to have any shot at a ring they needed an upgrade — Ramon Sessions is an upgrade. A big upgrade. Steve Blake is a solid backup.…
