Have the CA and Marc Gasol heard about Ramon Sessions?

Remember the two articles in the Commercial Appeal a few weeks ago saying not to trade Mike Conley? When the Grizzlies were talking to the Bucks about trading for Ramon Sessions and Joe Alexander?

Remember how Marc Gasol said the deal did not make any sense? He was right, he was just on the wrong side of things. Let us take a look at Ramon Sessions the last four games, just for fun...

26 pts, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals vs. Houston
44 pts, 12 assists, 5 rebounds vs. Detroit
19 pts, 6 assists, 3 rebounds, 4 steals vs. Nets
20 pts, 7 assists, 4 rebounds vs. Hawks

That is just embarrasing. The CA and Marc Gasol never said why the deal didn't make any sense (unless you consider he is gonna be Tony Parker, blah, blah, blah, as a reason), and never even mentioned why Ramon Sessions would not be worth trading for. Maybe I can read 1000 more times about how much better Mike Conley is playing and then I will forget how the CA said (twice, in two columns by two different writers) not to trade him for a guy that is going totally bananas.

Update: this is incredible, there is another Conley article today. Ha! Surprisingly, no mention of who the paper said not to trade him for.
