Before we get to that, many thanks to the callers from across the states, those calls not only humble me, but they really make the show great. (You can click on the media player to the right to listen now.)
Early in the mix above you can see that Sessions uses the screen to pass out and find an open man, in this case Charlie V. Picture that being Gallinari.
For me, the most natural screen to utilize for a point guard is not from the top of the key, but from the weak side. If the defending guard goes under the screen, the point guard naturally should rub off the screener and pull up in the lane for the jump shot. Frankly, J Flynn, does that as well as anyone I've seen in a long time.
But watch Sessions at 2:10, he doesn't get a screen but he uses his size to push Nash mid-paint and hit the runner. That's a shot, I'm told, that he's perfected.
I like that.
In the end, I believe that if he uses screens to kick out to the perimeter first, he can hide his inefficient jumper. And since the Knicks have the players in Gallo, Harrington, Chandler, Hughes and possibly Nate, the coach should feel comfortable about Sessions orchestrating this system.
Hopefully, Ramon has the natural ability to use the weak-side elbow screen, pull up and make those mid range jumpers.
Again, if you're asking me, as one caller did, who's the "best fit" between Sessions, J-Will, and Tinsley clearly what Sessions does on both sides of the ball, he'd be a nice piece moving forward, that is, of course, assuming the Bucks don't match.
And while we're at it, let me be clear on Nate. Trust me when I say no one roots for the little guy more than me, I've been the little guy my whole life. Nate is a scorer and maybe the idea of a Stackhouse or a locker room veteran, is to keep Nate and the younger players in check. There isn't much leadership and the coach shouldn't have to worry about discipline. The players should be able to police themselves. Last season Quentin Richardson tried to lead and he's no longer here.
I know with maturity Nate can be a rotation player on a very good team and I'd hate for him to go do it elsewhere. Of course, at this point, there is no elsewhere. My take? Should they add a veteran then we should expect Nate to come back, at least until the trade deadline.
