Rambis Doesn't Like Flynn-Sessions Backcourt

From: http://www.nba.com/fantasy/fantasy_playernews.jsp#ramon_sessions

Update: Minnesota head coach Kurt Rambis says he doesn't like playing Sessions and Johnny Flynn at the same time in the backcourt. "Right now, I'm not big on it," Rambis told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "That may change in the future, but I'm not big on it. We looked at it a little in practice. I didn't go, 'Oooohhhhhh.' I went, 'Ehhhhhhhhh.'"

Analysis: The two haven't played together in any of the team's three preseason games. If one of the two isn't playing shooting guard, then Sessions' playing time would likely suffer since the T-Wolves have made a commitment to Flynn as the starting point guard. Still, it's hard to see either player being happy with limited minutes in a backup role, so Rambis may change his mind at some point.


I would have to agree with Kurt. Neither Flynn nor Sessions look like too much of a shooting guard- offensively or defensively. On both Jonny's and Ramon's SBnation profiles, it says that their career potentials are: "Starting PG." In the Wolves-Raptors preseason game, both Flynn and Sessions looked like point guards.

I disagree with the above NBA.com "news" in the sense that Ramon Sessions would suffer a lot and we made a commitment to start Jonny Flynn. I am sticking to my opinion saying that Ramon Sessions should start over Jonny, at least at the beginning of the season. Jonny Flynn said he would be okay starting off the bench with Ricky Rubio so I would think he would be okay with starting off the bench with Ramon Sessions. If "J-Fly" develops into a better player over the season, then he would start over Ramon no doubt.

We paid Ramon Sessions a 4-year, $16 million deal for a reason: He's good. And he should be rewarded for being good, he should start. Jonny Flynn once again can become the starter, but so far, it looks as if Jonny Flynn will be the one that will suffer some of his minutes.
