Knicks to sign Sessions

A little insider;

Via Twitter, Gery Woelfel of The Journal Times reports the Knicks will likely use the $5.8M mid-level exception to sign restricted free agent Ramon Sessions and that an offer could be made by Tuesday.

The best FA no one is discussing

"Given the financial state of the Bucks franchise and their selection of Brandon Jennings in last month's draft, it's likely that they'd decline to match a sizable offer for Sessions by another team."
___________________________________

This is a good signing for the Knicks but I was starting to get excited about how good of a PG Douglas could be. I think Sessions could be a top PG in the league playing for D'Antoni. The Knicks will now have great depth at the point and we will not have to re-sign Duhon in 2010.

Little Insider:

Danny of Brooklyn has said on Twitter:

Knicks are going to get Wade and Lebron to equal Nba Champs for the next 5 years

Apparently Danny has the inside information we all are looking for.

Big steal at less than six mil. Hes definitely underrated.

Knicks sign Sessions

This is a great move and a definite upgrade over Duhon. But do you think though Brandon Jennings is ready to be the leader in Milwaukee?

I dont think Jennings is

I dont think Jennings is ready but the Bucks arent exactly a cash cow and they drafted him as a replacement. They also still have Ridnour who is solid.

Wow that was like 2 minutes

Wow that was like 2 minutes after I posted this. That may throw a wrench into things. LA is as big a market as NY with better weather. Hopefully the D'Antoni system is a draw. I wouldnt want to share the backcourt with Telfair, Collins and Baron though.

Oh, I keep forgetting to

Oh, I keep forgetting to remind everyone that Dan D'Antoni was Sessions' AAU coach. I think NY has this locked up tomorrow.

http://myespn.go.com/blogs/truehoop/0-42-95/The-Best-Free-Agent-Nobody-i... Check the numbers for those who thought I was dumb for saying that he is a top 5 point guard. In the little minutes he got in his two year his stats as a point guard are impressive. Also he should be able to shoot sooner because he made perimeter shots in college so he just has to get a lot of shots in and have the freedom the Knicks will give him. I do hope Bucks do not match.

Sheltwon for the millionth

Sheltwon for the millionth time I always agreed he has tremendous talent and potential. HOWEVER, he cannot be placed above CP3, D-Will, Nash, Kidd, Parker, Chauncey right now. Rose, Harris and few other guys are probably above him at **THIS POINT** but he will shine eventually and maybe work his way into the conversation. Especially on the Knicks. Lets just enjoy our Knicks getting better by signing him at a bargain price.

Jennings is ready to run an

Jennings is ready to run an NBA team now. His shooting and lack of size are a factor but remember he ran offense in Europe. Most European player come over ready. Jennings got to see both worths and he played tough D is summer league. Let's forget about stats, the kid made plays and played hard on D and that can carry over to the actually NBA games. Bucks would be stupid to sign Sessions now because they would bump heads. Someone would have to get traded. Knicks would be wise to work out a sign and trade

Jennings hardly ever ran the

Jennings hardly ever ran the offense in Italy. He even played the 3 at times. The coach didnt trust him with the ball. I think he will be starting by years-end but not over Ridnour in the beginning.

Just because he does have

Just because he does have the hype. Check the stats his skills are already there man and he is younger than them all. How can you not see that. You have to look at per minute stats. If he got the same amount of time he would have outdid most of the guys you mentioned. You like to wait for hype huh. I am saying this before fans jump in his nuts. Top basketball people are saying good things about this dude. Noone knows why he is still out there and not getting paid. He will be a free agent steal. This is not a question of if he will do it, it is when and where. His skills are there but where will he show them and will he get enough time to put up better stats then the any of the guards you mentioned. Billups can shoot better than him right now but Sessions is a better playmaker and defender. He also gets to the line more than Billups and some of the other top point guards. Knicksfreak, Session will not get much better during this super season he is going to have for yall Knicks this coming year. He can already do that stuff and has if you check the per minutes stats. Knicks will give him a faster pace and more minutes and he will put up some top numbers while playing defense and he is taller than most the guys you mentioned except Deron Williams.

He will not get the starting

He will not get the starting position mainly because Skiles like control but I give him 15 to 20 games in and he will take it because he is the future. Ridnour may not even get resigned after next year. Meeks may even play so well that next year Redd gets traded for young players and draft picks. Bucks are trying to rebuild and they kept Redd to increase his trade value after being hurt.

Sheltwon for the millionth

Sheltwon for the millionth time I always agreed he has tremendous talent and potential. HOWEVER, he cannot be placed above CP3, D-Will, Nash, Kidd, Parker, Chauncey right now. Rose, Harris and few other guys are probably above him at **THIS POINT** but he will shine eventually and maybe work his way into the conversation. Especially on the Knicks. Lets just enjoy our Knicks getting better by signing him at a bargain price.

CP3 Session is not on this level yet but he is taller and can get to the line more in less time and is not getting the same minutes and the thing is CP3 is not a great shooter anyway so this year coming up it is possibly that they could put up the same assists numbers and be very close in scoring yet Sessions will not get pushed around by bigger guards

D- Will Williams could be stronger and and decent playmaker. I believe Sessions has a better assist to turnover ratio and is a better playmaker. One of these is debateable the other one is fact. Next year Session will get the opportunity to shine hopefully in a big market so he does not get overlooked

Nash Session is younger and has some great playmaking skills like Nask. Session is not the perimeter shooter Nash is but Sessions can get to the line and make his free throws which Nash can do but Nash does not get to the line as much. Sessions can also guard both the one and two now and has done it last year.

Kidd Sessions is younger and he may not be as good a playmaker as Kidd now he is not far behind and he can score more than Kidd and play defense something that Kidd used to do. How is Kidd better?

Parker-Parker is still not a great shooter or a great play maker but he can get in the lane and score better than any guard out there. At this point Tony is the better player but Sessions is the better point guard. Also Sessions D may be better and he is younger and slightly taller.

Billups--Billups is a great leader and system player. Session has not been in long enough to be Billups in those terms and Billups can shoot better. Everything else Sessions has the edge. I will not waste time in this because Billups is hype now because of Denver's success even though they had a lot of success with Miller passing too but were injured more.

Rose- Rose is young and I know he got hyped for leading a relatively healthy and deep team after the trade to the playoffs where he let Gordon do most of the work after the first game. Dude is still young but has promise to be the best point guard in few years. Session numbers were close to his and Sessions is better playmaker

Harris- I like Harris and Harris is the one guy that talent wise and skill wise over shadows Sessions somewhat except that Session is a better playmaker and if given the same opportunity that Harris got, New Jersey would have make the playoffs. He would have gotten Lopez lot more easier shots and other guys as well.

If i have to got back and get per minutes numbers on everyone you put out here if front of Sessions I will but i think I explained things well.

I am putting up facts man.

I am putting up facts man. How can you disagree with facts. I see it your opinion to like Rose who was a rookie over Sessions who has played 2 years because Rose got more opportunity. Opportunity helps will numbers but looking at per minutes allows you to see how well someone who got less minutes would stack with someone who got more somewhat. Alright we will have to agree to disagree but you keep throwing my name out of the time with the Sessions thing like I don't have a clue what I am talking about. I don't see how you could think that I am so far off when the numbers are there as well as the skills. If he played in a big city last year then people would know who he was and appreciate what he can do. I know we disagree but my thing is you seem so strong in your opinion and there are some strong facts to say otherwise. You and I both know the NBA is a lot about hype and right now Sessions is not in the hype but that does mean that his skills are not top 5 worthy now. Don't you think it is funny and you can check the stats that Nash got 2 MVP's in Phoenix during a lot of hype when he put up similiar numbers in Dallas and did not get that much attention.

Rose over Sessions because

Rose over Sessions because they took the defending champs to 7 games. Alot was on Rose's shoulders. I agree Sessions can be a top Pg just not over players who have to share stats with other great players on playoff teams. Not yet.

To your Nash point. No one thought of him as a top 5 PG in Dallas either. Sessions could be primed for a breakout year under D'Antoni and I am hoping and wishing for it.

I would have let this one go

I would have let this one go but you and gatorhill keep throwing that Sessions thing out there even when I am not even saying nothing about it and throwing my name out and if it is just your opinion cool but yall be on some this guys had no idea what is talking bout type stuff. I am here to show you that stats back everything I am saying. I have had a lot of opinions so i don't trip when people disagree but if you keep putting my name out about like I dont know my stuff, I start to think it is personal. Mentioning me with DHAMP is not a good thing even though DHAMP knows his stuff, he lets biases affect his judgment to easy. I don't I am a Lakers fan and I will say someone is better than Kobe is I believe it. If Kobe gets a call he should not have gotten, I will say it. I am a fan of basketball but not a fanboy. You don't me hyping up people that are sorry or lack skills or anything. I only hype up people I know enough about to say that are that good. I know what a good point guard needs and also know enough about most of the top 10 point guards to know their strengths and weakness. That is how I can say what I said about Sessions. Also I also noticed that 3 or the guys you mentioned are old. I was shocked not to see Rondo and I like Rondo. I think that Rondo is close to being top 5 but his shooting is just terrible if he can get it to be decent, he could be a top 5 guy maybe is considering none of those old guys after this year deserve to be in front of him.

Chill Sheltwon i like alot

Chill Sheltwon i like alot of things you say. I made a joke about debating you about Sessions being top 5 because I am 100% I would get the concensus on that one. If you really want to debate we can post a new topic about Sessions currently being a top 5 NBA PG.

The facts you put up were PER that was impressive but you never take into account that he had alot of opportunity on a bad team. Do you think Al Jefferson would put up such impressive numbers on a team like LA?

He played 10 less minutes

He played 10 less minutes than Rose so where was the opportunity. Also you could also say Rondo would not appear so good if he did not have HOF finishing his plays. That is why I said check the stats. Also Bucks had Jefferson and Charlie V so it was not like he was alone. Chicago did not have much until that trade because Deng was hurt the whole year. Thomas and Noah are not strong offensive players right now. Rose was allowed to take over games. Everyone else you mentioned get a lot of minutes, have the green light to shoot it when they want and also has the ball in their hands a lot more. If you were halfway decent how would you not put up number if that was the case. Also I love Paul and they are my fav team but New Orleans has less talent on it then Milwaukee and they Play in the West. Also outside of Paul, West, and often injured Peja and Chandler, they don't have much. Paul is still a good point guard though because he has made that team better and carried their sorry behind into the playoffs over more talented teams. Sessions if he would have gotten more minutes could have propelled the Bucks into the Playoffs where he not Rose would have looked good against Boston but that did not happen mainly because two of their top starters were hurt for most of the season and Bucks are not that deep. Also Knickfreak, I am chill man. Do you really think I be on some I am mad stuff but I do take it personally when someone feels like I have no idea what I am saying about basketball when all the facts back me. DHAMP talking about Devo was just plain stupid and I believe even he knows Devo was not going to make it. I am not saying Devo is not talented because he probably is but I don't believe he was that good to argue people about. His argument was not solid. Mine is. Whether you agree or not is on you but you have to at least respect that I have stats to back up what I said. Anybody can come out as say so and so is a top 5 point guard and not know that player. I have watched this player. I have basketball tapes showing everything you need for a certain position. I have watched countless hours of basketball and have played it myself in highschool and just for fun. I know everything a player needs at a position to be successful and also as a player. If a person has it then you are saying are they producing in the time they are given and also are they given enough time to show that. Sessions numbers per minute are on the level of some of the top guards. Why should I not say he is top 5 when in all honesty some of the top people before he is better than.
