Landry Fields isn't bad, he's just one of many players, who are normally dime a dozen.
Is Fields three times better than JJ? I would swap them in a sec. even paying as much to JJ.

I'm just working the thread title a little bit here. I figured if I overdid it, then we could just see him as being another generic 3 for the rest of the season.

Question is court vision/basketball smarts....

Who is better Fields or ex rap JJ... both are weak on decision making....both cant shoot....JJ is a better defender but more of a chucker then Fields .... both are non starters on my team.

JJ = Fields court vision/basketball smarts....over all i would take JJ

Fields needs to play without the ball guys like Lowry and our best player with court vision/basketball smarts Jose Calderon will find him. You can really see how much better Jose is with the ball then Lowry...but Lowry will be just fine...i love his hustle.

Sure he will, he's our leader, starting PG and isn't a pylon on D.

I'm sure that from Individual skill set, JJ has better defense than Fields.. However, I would guarantee that Fields can contribute more towards Team game than JJ, as JJ was actually destroying team chemistry and tried to make a selfish move which ruined our games.

I would rather have Fields who will have no problem with supporting roles and does all the dirty works for his teammates.

Kudos to you. I was trying to come up with "Landry Fields is so bad..." jokes but failed miserably. Some of these were way more inventive than what I was thinking of.

Landry Fields is one bad motherfucker. If that's what this thread is asking.

JJ = better athlete and probably tougher too

Fields = smarter player and likely less of a headache in the lockerroom

You got it damn right.

I'm sure there is a reason why Bulls traded JJ to Raps, despite of his super athleticism. JJ might be a better player if the team has a tough locker room leader like KG.. But we don't have a locker room with Charisma. So even if he stayed with Raps, he would have been a troublemaker and ruin the team chemistry anyways.

I would rather stick to Fields, who might be less athletic but does not have a mental problem.

Default The Incredibly Terrible Landry Fields

Game 1:24 minutes, 0/6, 0 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal
Game 2: 22 minutes, 1/4, 2 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists
Game 3: 21 minutes, 2/4, 5 points, 3 rebounds, 0 assists, 1 steal
Game 4: 20 minutes, 1/6, 3 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal

(commentary from game 1):

Yes, I know its the first game. But lets be real here. The guy is the worst starting SF in the league and would be playing very limited minutes on most good teams.

He cant shoot at all from the outside right now. Its not only his mechanics, but his confidence is completely shot. There was a play where Lowry got him a wide open look from 16 feet, and he travelled in to his shot which the refs didnt call, but then he shot it wide left because he wasnt ready to shoot it.

And his defence on George stank in the 1st half. George wasnt used as much in the second half so Fields got a break there.

Where is the Shane Battier like qualities? He cant hit an open jumpshot, his help defence is average, his man to man D has always been average, and against quicker players hes below average.

I'll be happy to eat crow if he even comes close to earning that ridiculous contract, but I see, like a few others mentioned, a Michael Curry like situation unfolding before our eyes.

Landry Fields sucks.

Did we not have one of these last year for Shane Battier's playoff performance?

turns out he is our version of Battier.

Maybe the upside is that it forces BC's hand a little more to make a trade. Dude has some work to do. I don't want to see many more great efforts by Lowry go unrewarded.

I wa certain his Carmerlo Amare experience was the issue, maybe he is just shitty?

OR maybe the Carmelo Staudamire experience is SO bad..you never come back from it hahaha
