Gary Woelfel from The Journal Times in Wisconsin: From Woelfel: “My impeccable sources tell me the Bucks and the Los Angeles Clippers recently had some serious conversations about a sign-and-trade deal involving Bucks free-agent point guard Ramon Sessions. Of course, the Clippers and New York Knicks – Sessions’ other main suitor – realize they only have to extend any offer sheet to secure Sessions’ services because the Bucks aren’t in any financial position to match it.”
Steve Perrin from ClipsNation with some Sessions thoughts: From Perrin: “Sessions is merely waiting to see if one of two things happens — if the Knicks can move a contract, or if the Bucks rescind the Qualifying Offer. Neither is likely, but he clearly wants to play in NY (which makes sense), so he’s going to wait it out.”
Some Ramon Sessions highlights: Unless you have league pass and/or a weird Bucks fetish, you probably didn’t see Ramon Sessions play a whole lot last year. Even if you’re sick of all things Sessions, get nostalgic and skip to .28 seconds for the “NBA Jam” throwback graphic. If you like dunks and you don’t care who knows, go ahead and watch Patrys15’s Craig Smith Mix as well.
Just another reason to thoroughly enjoy Blake Griffin: I think it’s safe to assume that B.G. is the first professional athlete to ever tweet Aristotle. Amidst this whole Beasley controversy, it’s nice to see the Clippers new franchise player tweeting harmless, motivational quotes.
And now, for some “lighter” news: Everyone’s favorite foreign center has dropped an incredible amount of weight, and is reportedly down to 300 pounds with an incredibly (perhaps unrealistically) low 8% body fat. Sofo may never put on a Clippers uniform, but at least he will look less like Mark Jackson’s brother now if he does. All jokes aside, Sofo’s newly transformed body has treated him well so far; the big man poured in 11 points yesterday in Greece’s 66-65 win over Serbia. We’ll check back on him as the EuroBasket tournament progresses.
