“I may be mentoring the new Kyrie Irving”, Sessions tells New York Post.

“It’s funny. It’s one of those things. I played with Johnny [Flynn] when he was younger. Kyrie when he was young. He’s [Ntilikina] got a lot of Kyrie tendencies. Not the most athletic guy but can handle the ball in tight spots. It’s still early on, but he definitely gives me that Kyrie feel when Kyrie was a rookie.“

Ntilikina reacted to Sessions’ comments: “Kyrie is Kyrie. That’s something. He’s an All-Star, has done crazy things. Hearing that is a blessing. Ramon is here for me. Giving me a lot of advice. I’m learning a lot from him.”
