Lakers Offense: Meet Ramon Sessions and the Pick and Roll

I came across this great article that broke down how the Lakers (and Kobe) scored points this season. Our most used plays were post-ups and spot-ups. We ISO more than we run the pick and roll. After acquiring a PG who can effectively run the P&R, I can see our offense experience a large boost in efficiency. I feel really excited for the remainder of this season!

Here's an excerpt that had me going nuts:

Kobe's most efficient offensive play is as a spot-up shooter. Unfortunately he doesn't get many attempts because, until now, no one could create them for him. Sessions can.

One play the Lakers have had success with recently is the P&R between Kobe and Gasol with Bynum staying near the rim should his man rotate to Gasol. This play can be run just as effectively, if not more, between Sessions and Gasol. The best part is that Kobe can spot-up on the wing. If his man leaves him to rotate and help, Kobe will be given plenty of wide open jump shots. The biggest question is whether or not he can hit them as, if I recall correctly, he hasn't had a wide open jump shot since 2002.

One problem with the Kobe Bryant P&R is that his turnover rate is twice as high on these plays relative to other types of offensive plays.

Darn straight Kobe turns the ball and blames the other more than any player in league history!! :man12:

Kobe's most efficient play is coming off and off ball screen and taking a shot in rhythm. Why we don't run that more often in games is beyond me.

Come playoff time if we run Ramon Pick and Roll, Kobe off off ball screens and the K-G-B pick and roll play, defenses are going to have fits. Hopefully the coaching staff has taken note of those plays and we will see them run at a higher rate in the playoffs.

Kobe's most efficient offensive plays are dunks :man11:
