Ramon Sessions Strong Down The Stretch

A look at how former Myrtle Beach star Ramon Sessions is showing the Milwaukee Bucks that their future at point guard looks very strong. Sessions has started the last few games and is showing the Bucks that he learned plenty playing in the D-League but wants to make his mark in the NBA from now on. Come inside and get the latest on the former Myrtle Beach High star.

Former Myrtle Beach High star PG Ramon Sessions has worked extremely hard this season. After leaving Nevada after his junior season Sessions was drafted in the 2nd round by the Milwaukee Bucks. First rounders usually get some playing time but it's rare that second rounders get some action and often they are cut. Sessions didn't make the big show to start the season but he earned some valuable experience playing in the NBDL which is the NBA's minor league.

Sessions had some nice offers coming out of Myrtle Beach in 2004. He spurned the two biggest schools in the Palmetto State along with Connecticut, Florida State, and Miami for going out west to Nevada. Many wondered why he decided to go so far away from home but now it appears that even after leaving school early things just might work out for Sessions.

Recently called up by the Bucks Sessions has been on a roll as of late. Playing in his first game for the Bucks on March 9th against Philadelphia Sessions the Bucks brought Sessions along slowly with just 4 minutes of action. Since then things have changed drastically. Since April started the Bucks have given him significant minutes and Sessions has responded very nicely. So far this month Sessions has logged at least 24 minutes per game and his numbers have steadily improved. In fact Sessions is averaging 8.3 points, 8.0 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per game in April through 6 games.

While his shooting percentages haven't been a thing of beauty he's displayed the ability to run a team effectively. Considering he's a rookie he's got an assists/turnover ratio higher than 2-1. One of his biggest shots in his young career though came the other night against the Washington Wizards when Sessions nailed a game winning 19 foot jumper in the 110-109 victory. "That's the biggest 1.1 seconds of my life right there," said Sessions. "That's my biggest shot, by far."

He's also starting to earn the respect of his teammates as well. "He's playing hard, and when he gets in there it's a fresh look for us," Andrew Bogut said of Sessions. "He doesn't want to go back to the D-League."
