Delfino is a much much better player than Fields in every aspect of the game, and what kind of contract and role did he get? Delfino is a much better 3 point shooter, ball handler, individual defender, and team defender than Landry. Their rebounding is comparable but thats about it.

I wish we could have signed Delfino. This team right now is seriously lacking a stud SF and that's about it imo. Delfino isn't that stud but he's far better than Fields.

Landry better earn that fucking contract. There were so many other possible options. Heck, we could have had Delfino AND picked up Scola off waivers with the money we're paying Fields.

Start Anderson, bring Fields off the bench. He needs some pressure taken off of him.

LANDRY FIELDS SUCKS. Worst of all his contract ruins any flexibility we could have had after signing Demar to 4 yrs.

Both those contracts ruin any flexibility. It's not Fields' fault he took a decent payday that BC used in an attempt to do a "market"/pure financially motivated deal (getting Nash).

Yes, both contracts are not ideal. But if you had to pick one of the two contracts, I'm pretty sure we'd all take Demar's 4 yr. Bang for your buck point of view...Fields is wasting our cap flexibility moreso than Demar.

We don't care if its Fields fault or not. DUDE SUCKS. He plays like Luke Walton. He's the new Luke Walton! Scrub. Backup wing for 4 mill a year at best.

doing 2 things on the court = 9 million/year. nice. judging by BC's track record, I'm surprised Fields' wasn't signed to a 4 or 5 year deal.

Also, from another board I'm on (anonymous poster):

"You don't pay full market rate for potential. You pay for actual production only."

Yup.

That's a decent point. As much as I like Fields I wouldn't have been sad at all to see Delfino back here.

Heck, I'd have brought Weems back over if we could've had him for $1M/yr.

Won't give up on Landry yet though. He did have a couple of strong games in the preseason (after some stinkers) so the potential is there.

yes its easy to complain about both contracts and players. but im just picking my battles here. and between the 2 of these guys, i find myself waaaay more upset over fields and his contract vs. demar and his contract.

at the end of the day both are mediocre players, but i'd rather have 2 things for 9 mill/yr (Demar) than 0 things for 6 mill/yr (Fields)

Dude, it's looked pretty bad so far for Fields but even at his worst he's still a better defender, rebounder, shooter from deep, passer (apg) and even better spg than DD. He's only played one game for the raps meanwhile we've had years to analyze DD. DD - 38 million. Fields - 18.75 million. You've judged Fields on what, a preseason and 1 official game. The problem is, Fields is a SG.

Landry is a smart player. Unfortunately that is the only thing he has going for him. The guy might literally have as little non-basketball IQ related talents as anyone in the league.

Forget James Johnson... I'd rather see Sonny Weems out there right now than Landry Fields

James Johnson 2 pts (1-8 FG), 3 rbds, 3 stl, 4 TO...
Landry Fields 0 pts (0-6 FG), 2 rbds, 1 ast, 1 stl, 1 TO...

I guess it was a fair trade

It's clear we could use an upgrade at the 3, badly. Fields just isn't as good as some were hyping and it's showed. He lacks athleticism, is young and inconsistent, gives decent effort defensively but lacks the strength and explosion to be a difference maker against bigger threes, and has suspect handles and questionable finishing skills at this level. Hopefully Ed has a huge year and becomes a tradable asset that we can peddle for Rudy Gay.

With what we got last night from LF, we may as well have just used Dominic McGuire for his defensive skills.

C'mon, it's only been one game. If he hit a few of the shots (which were within his range and not forced), we'd all be praising how smart of a player he is and how he played within himself. Anyone expecting 25/8/8 from our SF position should jump on the Heat bandwagon, because we're not getting that, period.

Was I disappointed with Fields? Sure. But by no means did his play lose us this game. Not to put too much weight into this stat (or any other single statistic), but the one category he led the team in was +/-. Interpret that however you want.

I interpret that as more proof that +/- is a stupid stat.

Fields is here for 2 seasons after this season. DD is here for 4 seasons after this season. It's like BC loves SGs.

Bingo. And Fields awfulocity was one of the main reasons we lost this game, yes.

In order: 1. Refs, 2. Bad defence vs West, 3. Landry Fields

And yes, I'm hoping this is a jinx thread like the Battier one in the playoffs. But like the Battier one in the playoffs, I'm trying to point out how awful the said player is. And I had no intentions of making that Battier thread as a reverse jinx so he'd play well because I hate Lebron and the Heat. This time on the other hand I'm hoping it's a jinx and Landry actually turns in to some klnd of a player.
