And that’s just what the Lakers need. On both of their championship teams, the Lakers had the perfect mix of veteran and young talent. If the vets were having an off night, the young guns would come off the bench and provide a much-needed shot in the arm.
It was why the Lakers were so good on the road a few years ago and are terrible now. What’s worse is that, seemingly overnight, all their young talent disappeared. Farmar, Brown, Odom, Vujacic and Powell were lost due to various reasons, but never replaced.
Instead, we added older role players and the team as a whole aged significantly.
Sessions allows the Lakers to start rebuilding with young talent. If the Lakers are smart, Sessions and Hill will just be the start and they will find more over the summer free agency.
