Start Blake. Play him for 15 mins a game with starters. Sessions plays the rest.
You have hit it on the nail. This is exactly what Brown has been working toward in a very passive/aggressive way. He won't get 15 minutes though. Blake will be splitting minutes. This is clearly what Brown wants.
Meanwhile, all of it goes against common sense. The FO gave him what he needed to succeed, and took away any obstacle to it by removing Fish. Instead of Fish now, Brown is loyal to Blake. This is all extremely conservative. Just like his decision to bench the rookie.
Brown doesn't want to utilize Sessions ability to create and run the offense on his own. It's a control thing, I guess. He'd rather play a guy who brings nothing on the offensive end but will run the Iso system.
It's all pretty discouraging. I thought we had a puncher's chance with the addition of Sessions. But clearly I think he will be relegated to less minutes coming up. And certainly he won't be allowed to do his thing with the starting unit any longer.
