Mike Brown Will Keep Steve Blake in the Starting Lineup

The Los Angeles Lakers traded for young point guard Ramon Sessions to improve at that poistion, but it seems as though Sessions is not guaranteed a starting role with the coaching staff. Sessions is no doubt the quickest and most athletic point guard on this team, but coach Mike Brown will still have him coming off the bench, Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles writes.

“I don’t want to guarantee anything or put anything in stone because I don’t know if it’s healthy to do that all the time,” Lakers coach Mike Brown said. “It’s definitely Steve’s job for the foreseeable future and it might be his job for the rest of the year. I don’t know.”

Sessions played well in his first game with the Lakers as he scored seven points, dished out five assists and had three turnovers. As for Blake, he did not score a single point but had six assists and zero turnovers.

This Laker back-court is surely more talented than the one in the beginning of the season, and the team does not lose much of a step when either Sessions or Blake are on the court. However, based on his quickness and ability to defend faster point guards, Sessions may end up getting the starting spot.

    This is expected until Sessions Learn the system. No need to rush things yet.

    I want blake to get injured again if Mike brown won’t make Sessions as starting 5.We need Speed.Sessions can play better if given lot of minutes.I don;t want lake to be the starting point guard the rest of the season-_-

      why would you wish someone that is on your team to be injured??? Sessions need to learn Brown’s system first. As of now, Blake can start now and Sessions can be our instant offense from the bench.

    i like sessions off of the bench cause blake knows and is comfortable with the offense plus sessions with the bench squad can feel more comfortable with playing his game and being agressive on offensive and basically run the bench squad
