Let’s start this off by saying Derek Fisher was a huge factor in all of the Laker championships since 2000 and deserves all the praise in LA he can get. With that said in 2012, having Ramon Sessions replace Derek Fisher on the current LA roster could turn into the most important NBA transaction of the year especially if the Lakers win another ring.
I’ve been saying for years that Sessions is an underrated player and after last night’s 20pt 6reb 11ast game he’s on the borderline of becoming overrated. I’m not taking away anything from what Ramon is doing but I wanted to look back and see how many Laker guards besides Kobe Bryant have put together a 20 & 10 game since the departure of Nick Van Exel. Well, the list isn’t that long.

- Chuck yAtkins 2005: 26pts 10ast

- Pau Gasol 2010: 2opts 10ast
