Kurt Rambis on Kobe Bryant, Mike Brown, and Ramon Sessions

Former Lakers coach Kurt Rambis joined the Mason and Ireland Show Monday afternoon -- me and Andy filling in for the Oakland-bound John Ireland -- offering very interesting takes on Sunday's fourth quarter benching (if that's the right term) of Kobe Bryant against the Grizzlies, how he thinks Mike Brown handled it, and whether he believes there will be any fallout going forward. As someone who worked with Bryant about as long as anyone and has a deep understanding of the L.A. market, Rambis' perspective is one worth hearing.

Oh yeah, we also talked about other stuff, like the impact of Ramon Sessions on the team's offense, and what his presence does for the Lakers' playoff chances.
