I agree on the insubordination.... it's unfortunate. We are missing his compete level at the three spot, and his defenisive intensity and toughness. You know who is a man? James Johnson is a man. That guy was able to impose his will defensively, something this team has lacked on the wings for years. Just sucks how it played out.

Landry Fields, regardless of the brutal contract and clowning tendencies, just isn't big enough, strong enough, explosive enough or tough enough for the SF spot. Colangelo's failed bid at Nash needs to be acknowledged as having led to his blatantly awful signing of this young prospect and hype of him as a glue guy. For a team that has been called soft for years, it was just a series of decisions that were detrimental to the team's progression.
