Fresh off dropping his new album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, Outkast's Big Boi made an appearance on NBA TV's The Jump to talk shop on two of his (and my) favorite subjects, basketball and music.
Hoopsvibe's quick call: Big Boi is an accomplished hip hop artist and a true hoops fan.Read More
This article was borne out of the idea that Jason Kidd has made the third most three point baskets in NBA history. I love J Kidd, but to me, he is the antithesis of a “pure shooter”, a guy that came out of the womb knocking shit down. Kidd refined his skill to the point where he somehow gets it done but early in his career he struggled with hitting the three.
Sessions, rumored to be on the trading block, said, "I'm a Timberwolf right now, and I expect to be one next season."
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Credit Ramon Sessions for taking the high road.
One summer after signing a multi-year contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, he no longer fits the club's plans.
Jonny Flynn will start at point guard. Newly signed Luke Ridnour will be the back-up. And next summer Ricky Rubio could swap the European professional circuit for the Frozen Tundra of 'Sota.
So Sessions will be traded, but still said the right things at the Timberwolves' basketball camp. He could have taken a different approach like a certain retired sharpshooter turned analyst who shall remain nameless (click video below).
('Don't call me 3D no more.')
Expect Sessions to soon find a new home as a reserve combo guard. The former D-league star could still develop into a Vinnie Johnson, instant offense type off the bench.
And his positive, professional attitude can only help.
