I didn't expect this subject to come up again, but it has.
I've stated that either point guard would be great fits for the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise as their point guard of the future.
I've said that Jonny Flynn would be the better point guard if he can limit his turnovers.
But the sad thing is that he's averaging more turnovers than assists.
He can score at will, but as far as I'm concerned, Ramon Sessions has been running the team much more efficiently than Johnny Flynn.
Maybe it has something to do with the triangle offense, but there are other factors going along with that as well.
Jonny Flynn appears to be confused at times which forces him to take bad shots. He can get past anybody, yet doesn't always utilize his talent.
Ramon Sessions played very well in the loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Thirteen minutes in, Sessions had seven assists and finished with eight for the game.
Johnny Flynn has been turning the ball over consistently the entire season, and it has showed that Kurt Rambis is not willing to put up with more mistakes than a rookie should be making.
Ramon Sessions steps in each game and plays very well. Regardless of the assist numbers, he organizes the team very effectively and takes smart shots.
Call me crazy, but Jonny Flynn cannot be the future averaging five turnovers with three assists a game—it just cannot happen.
As a rookie, maybe he'll break through. But I think that it would be better for him to play against a second unit until he get's into a groove. Otherwise, START RAMON SESSIONS!
Just to clear the air, Jonny Flynn looks like the future of this team but don't be surprised if Sessions (who we signed for four years) proves us wrong.
