Ramon Sessions: A Potential Game Changer for Lakers

After four games of observing the newly acquired point guard, we have a gauge of what Ramon Sessions can do for the Los Angeles Lakers, and what we can expect from him going forward.

Derek Fisher did it again. With the Lakers in need of some late game heroics, Fisher did not hesitate to provide his services.

At 37 years-old, Fisher is towards the end of his ...
