RE Jim Buss, how quickly we forget that he traded for CP3 only to have Stern and the other owners block it. but its popular to hate on him, im just not so quick to judge the guy its clear he wants to win or else they would have dumped Gasol for peanuts and used the amnesty on Artest. Odom dump looks great now in hindsight the guy was not into it this year. people forget just how restrictive this new cba is to team over the cap.
Sessions also has a very good assist/turnover ratio at 2.5/1
He's not been given much of a chance to be a starter, but when given minutes Sessions has shown he's much better than Fish, and marginally better than Blake.
Sessions knock has always been his shooting. He couldn't shoot at nevada or any team he's been at. He is one of the worst finishers you will ever see and the Lakers need a penetrator.
Regarding Buss, it was well chronicalized that the CP3 trade would have saved the Lakers 8 million a year, which equates to 16 million a year. The rumors from the end of last year was that Lamar and his salary were going to be gone. Pau and CP3's salary is close to a wash but Pau was under contract for longer and had been quoted as mentioning the phrase "moving Pau's contract for the right piece". That says he was thinking just as much about money as he was player.
Analysts have been chronicalizing his every move and breaking down the patterns and his verbal reasoning behind them. he always slips up. That is why Kobe won't ever refer to him by name in interviews.
