reposted from "3 spot" thread:

even fields has admitted time and time again that his contributions don't show up in the stat sheets. dude is just setting his own standard/bar low so we're not disappointed. so that when he has regular 5 pts, 3 rbs, 1 ast nights we're all like "oh thats fine, cause he's the glue guy. his contribution to the team may not be tangible on paper, but we're sure lucky to have him"

this whole glue guy thing is getting to be a played out term. now being used a little too liberally by GMs and coaches for mediocre basketball players.

give me a "glue guy" that actually shows his worth both in the stats and in his hustle.

then again...im praying for the Raptors sake that LF proves me wrong

it is preseason, I remember when Anthony Parker had a terrible preseason his first year with the raptors, but he turned out quite alright

players have to get in playing shape, look at Bargs, he has been struggling as well, but the only difference is we know his game and what he will bring, fields is still new to us, but I will give him some time

I think fields success really depends on how well players like DD and Bargs do.. then he could be the perfect complimentary piece.. but I still wish he got Harrison Barns.. he would have been perfect

Expecting Mo-Pete out of Fields and it should be a decent investment

Fields looked pretty good in that Wiz game. Looked more like the player we were promised.

Fields seems to have good chemistry with Lowry and none with Jose.

He's good at cutting to the basket and moving without the ball. That plays into KL's game imo.

Looks like he is starting to find his game in a new system. Give him some time he will be fine. 15 pts-3 rbs-2 Ass-1 St in 26 mins. Not bad for his 4th game with a new team.

He and DD are also developing some chemistry.

I heard he got the game ball tonight. Don't be so hard on your new Raptor. The SF position is a hard one to accumulate big stats. Your SF is suppose to be your jack of all trades. Sometimes the stuff they do to help you, doesn't show up on a stat sheet.

If everybody counted wins and losses by using the PER system, then Boston would have won the championship 5 years straight.

Landry Fields can really help you guys out. New York had no choice but to trade him, because Melo is a selfish player that doesn't like young guys behind him chomping at the bit for minutes.

Landry Fields is so bad...that he inherited Ghaddafi's bodyguards...and they insisted on standing guard over the Colonel's rotting corpse.

Landry Fields is so bad…that when the French government banned homework, schoolchildren took to the streets demanding that they ban Landry Fields instead.
