Ramon Sessions

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

    Mar 23, 2012, 5:46 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 22, 2012, 2:36 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:03 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 21, 2012, 6:42 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 19, 2012, 11:39 AM EST

    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…

  7. Kobe understands Fisher trade better than some Lakers fans

    Mar 18, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    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.…

  8. Weekend Observations: 25 notes about the trade deadline

    Mar 18, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We’re thee days past the trade deadline. Some players have already landed and played a game with their new teams, some haven’t even arrived in their new destinations (does Hasheem Thabeet really have that busy of a calendar?). But we’re starting to recover from the shock of a still-nuts-if-quieter-than-last-year deadline that saw two coaches let go…

  9. Rockets to buy out contract of Derek Fisher

    Mar 16, 2012, 3:31 PM EST

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    The Lakers needed to move Derek Fisher for political reasons in the locker room — can you have a guy the Lakers fans love and the team signed because Kobe Bryant wanted him to sitting at the end of the bench? Almost never in the game? His play warrants him sitting, but fans won’t see…

  10. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    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). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

  11. Surveying trade deadline landscape: League’s second tier got better

    Mar 16, 2012, 12:56 AM EST

    Nick Young

    As you survey the NBA landscape in the aftermath of the storm that is always the NBA trade deadline, and a couple things leap out: First, the title contenders did not change — and they all stood pat. In the East, the path to the finals goes through Miami and Chicago and nobody really moved…

  12. NBA trade deadline report cards: Portland gets an “A”

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:04 PM EST

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  13. Moves we didn’t expect: Derek Fisher traded by Lakers

    Mar 15, 2012, 5:22 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    The Lakers had been looking to bring in a quality point guard at the trade deadline (and they did in a deal for Ramon Sessions). But nobody expected them to ship out Derek Fisher. But that’s what they did just before the trade deadline, shipping Fisher along with a first-round pick to Houston for reserve…

  15. Lakers get point guard, trade for Cavaliers’ Ramon Sessions

    Mar 15, 2012, 1:55 PM EST

    Jonny Flynn, Luis Scola, Ramon Sessions

    The Lakers — desperate for a point guard — have traded their first round pick this season to get Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Multiple sources now confirm this trade, although Brian Windhorst of ESPN was the first. The full deal is Sessions and Christian Eyenga to the Lakers, for Luke Walton and the…

    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). Byron Scott says he doesn’t want the Cavaliers to trade Ramon Sessions at the deadline. Consider this some “give us the first round pick or…

  17. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  19. Kyrie Irving out for Cavaliers Friday night

    Mar 2, 2012, 7:01 PM EST

    Cavaliers Irving reacts to making a three point basket in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Consider this the “Ramon Sessions trade showcase” game now. Kyrie Irving is out for the Cavaliers Friday Night game hosting the Bulls Friday night. Officially the Cavaliers are only saying he is ill, according to the Plain Dealer’s Cavs twitter account. This moves Sessions into the starting lineup. He already has been drawing a lot…

  20. Stein: Lakers may be interested in Kirk Hinrich. Laker fans, you may now be depressed.

    Mar 2, 2012, 5:40 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: Keep an eye on Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich. If the Lakers can’t make a splashy move for the elite point guard they crave — a long shot at best at this point — and can’t swing a deal for top fallback choice Ramon Sessions, taking Hinrich and his $8.1 million salary…

  21. Tuesday And-1 links: Let the trade rumors begin

    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). The Golden State Warriors have their eye on Brook Lopez (if that whole “trade for Dwight Howard” thing doesn’t work out for the Nets). Ramon…

    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). How much would you pay for a game-worn Jeremy Lin jersey and four tickets to see him play? For one guy the answer was $42,388.…

  23. Report: Lakers interested in trading for Michael Beasley

    Feb 21, 2012, 10:57 AM EST

    Michael Beasley

    The Lakers need scoring, they need someone who can create his own shot not on the perimeter not named Kobe Bryant, they need depth. And they are desperate enough to consider Michael Beasley. No, this is not a Pau Gasol trade — come on, nobody is that stupid — but there have been talks, according…

  24. Kobe backs Lakers getting Arenas, but not enthusiastically

    Feb 14, 2012, 8:10 AM EST

    Arenas_Gilbert

    The Lakers need a point guard. You know it. I know it. Kobe Bryant knows it. Heck, even Derek Fisher knows it, he’s just too professional to get his head down over it. Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak watched Gilbert Arenas work out on Sunday. So reporters asked Kobe what he thinks of the Arenas idea…

  25. Report: Gilbert Arenas works out for Lakers

    Feb 12, 2012, 10:34 PM EST

    Arenas magic

    How desperate are the Lakers for a point guard? Well, they’ve talked about bringing in Allen Iverson. And now they have worked out Gilbert Arenas. That’s what Adrian Wojnarowski reports at Yahoo Sports. In a search to find some scoring for their floundering offense, Los Angeles Lakers officials attended a private workout for guard Gilbert…
