An unnecessary jab.... but maybe you're more like Bosh than we thought.

No, he needs more than two to outline how bad he sucks!

That said, he'd look great at the end of the rotation.

+1. Yes he is struggling, but Fields is a glue guy. He is not putting up alot of shots and is not counted on for his scoring prowess. Would we giving this amount of attention to Fields if Bargnani who has taken the most shots in the team (14.3 per game) and is shooting .333% from the field can actually make some shots instead of putting his team in the hole everytime he is on the floor.

He'd look great if he didn't play. He deserves 0 minutes absolutely. I don't care about his contract.

How is he a glue guy? The guy can't shoot, can't pass, play D he wasn't even a glue guy last year . How many times was he spoonfed the ball and bricked open layups near the rim? The guy did 0 work on his game this summer other than wasting his time fooling around with his girlfriend. He came here to get his contract and stink up the joint. He's worse than Turkoglu.

Yes, his shooting has been terrible. We didn't bring him for his scoring. He plays solid D, and he is commiting some turnovers because he is on a new team, new offense, and new teammates. When some of the starters are struggling on offense, he is not going to pick up the slack. It also doesn't help when some starters tend to have tunnel vision when going to the rim. Maybe it worthwhile if he moved to the second unit where there is more ball movement. He is smart player, he'll get it together. Its only been a few games, its not like we have been waiting for 7 years.

It's just a made-up term for some elusive quality of leadership and charisma that fans and one GM seem to think should override talent and effectiveness. I wish we'd stop looking so hard for the next Anthony Parker who really wasn't that damn good when he was here. The next Battier? He was a 6th overall pick, he had talent. Why does that get so overlooked?

My wife has a long history of liking a player and then having them disappear. Her list includes:

Luke Jackson

Peja Stojakovic

Hedo Turkoglu

Sonny Weems

I have OK'd her to buy a Landry Fields jersey.

Technically we didn't "bring" him for anything, the signing was a side effect attempt to keep Nash away from NYK.

So far it looks like we did NYK a big favour. Twice.

You cant be a glue guy if you suck. Lets just stop using that term to describe Fields.

A guy like Collison is a glue guy because he does all the little things and is one of the best post and help defenders in the NBA. He's always there for his teammates when they make mistakes.

This may be the worst signing in Raptors history.

2 points on 25% shooting isnt good in any rotation. He shouldnt even be in the league at this point.

Fields isn't going anywhere, because BC doesn't like to admit his mistakes

When people say Landry is a "glue guy", I think they might mean he sniffs glue. That would explain a lot.

Yea a glue guy has to be able to play. Landry can't do shit on the basketball court.
