Should the Bucks promote Sessions?
I don't know what kind of an NBA player PG Ramon Sessions can become, or if he even will become one, but I do know he's currently tearing up the NBDL. In fact he looks very promising, indeed.
His point guard adjusted Win Score with the Tulsa 66ers is an excellent +4.25. He penetrates, dishes the ball, and minimizes turnovers. His low scoring efficiency worries me (.451%), but I think if he came up he would show a lot of discretion. He may be overshooting in an effort to get noticed -- a smart strategy given the way the NBA overrewards scoring (and yet his bad shooting is not killing his WS, which tells you how good his secondary numbers look).
But how will his NBDL numbers translate if they bring him up to the Show? That I don't know. But I'd sure like to find out.
Playing Royal Ivey is a complete waste of time. The Bucks are getting nothing from him. In fact, its worse than that. He's so far below average he's actually a corrosive force. And its obvious, the more you play him, the more damage he does.
Night after night the Bucks are actually having to overcome his lousy play to win. Why not try the young guy?
Worrisome College Numbers
The one thing that frightens me about Sessions are his mediocre college numbers. Normally that indicates a potential flop.
However, again, I think what happened was Sessions tried to force the points in an effort to get to the pros. If someone gets in his ear before he gets to Milwaukee and tells him to take only high percentage shots, he should be fine.
Oddly, Sessions NBDL numbers are far better than his college numbers. I wonder if that's common.
