^^ Great post and clarification KB/WA/RW. I appreciate that and I think my post was out of frustration because it seems to be flavor of the month here at CL for guys just in a blanket way condemn Sessions defense. It was clear that he was going under screens but it was also pretty clear that it was part of the coaches' game plan.
My bad being too general with that statement about playing ball - obviously you aren't one of those posters, but it seems like a lot of posters here don't play and they don't' get the fact that if you get picked by guys who have 5 inches and 60 pounds on you, chances aren't high that you'll magically get AROUND that screen in a way that you can recover on your own man. The player who's guy that is needs to figure out if he needs to step out on the other guy or not, and needs to do it quickly. It's also his responsibility to alert Sessions. You get this, I've got that now and again, no problem at all with you setting me straight on that. I appreciate it. But some of these other cats aren't being realistic.
Pick and roll is a standard offensive play for good reason. Generally, it works. Stockton and Malone made a living out of it for 15 plus years.
Clearly, the biggest problem is on a team level. I agree with you on that. My point was that I just wish Sessions was a bit more agressive though. It wouldn't solve all the havoc that play is causing against us, but it would certainly help.
Hopefully, with more practice time, and more time for the team to gel, the overall team D will be better, and we'll be able to stop teams more effectively.
