Kobe Raves About Sessions’ First Outing
Despite having minimal contact with teammates, logging no practice time and learning plays on the fly, (Ramon) Sessions posted seven points on three-of-six shooting, five assists and four rebounds.
The effort prompted (Kobe) Bryant to rave about his basketball IQ, ability to run pick-and-roll plays and, of course, it increased Bryant’s scoring chances.
“It makes my job a lot easier,” said Bryant, who scored 28 points on nine-of-20 shooting, including five of eight from three-point range. “I get a lot of easier opportunities. I sit on the perimeter. I got a lot of spot-up shots tonight both from his break-down penetration and from teams collapsing onAndrew [Bynum].”
