Raptors Fields Admits Contract Affected His Play

“Earlier on I really did feel that,” said Fields, who has played 7 games since returning from a right elbow injury. “But going through this whole surgery thing has really been a humbling experience. I kind of promised myself when I came back that I wasn’t going to focus on that anymore. I was just going to go out there and play my game. What they gave me and what I’ve come here to do are on their own accord. All I can do now is control what I can do. I can’t really worry about (the contract). That just puts too much added pressure on myself.”

Fields returned to the starting lineup in Wednesday’s win over the Philadelphia 76ers and finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds for his first double-double in a Raptors uniform.

Well, he certainly does seem to be a really well balanced and honest guy. Hard not to like him.

Do what got you here. Play your game. Smart kid.

This franchise has had WAY too many guys over the years who've tried too hard (or been forced) to be something that they're not.

i hate both those commercials, they just seem very forced onto us, like the situation is so staged, it almost makes you feel like they're actually playing in the car for maybe 15 minutes and then they kick the fan out
its also pretty creepy they're playing Vitas, it just seems awkward that they're sitting in a car with small gadgets in their hands looking at separate tiny screens, it seems pointless to even play with Fields, its not like you're in some party room playing an xbox or PS3 with Fields sharing a big screen

the main issue here with these commercials is i feel like we're getting Fields forced onto us as the team "fan" guy just because he's an "out-going" guy, they seem to force him upon us in commercials, interviews, etc. as the guy for jokes and entertainment, just let it happen naturally, if he is that guy it'll come out

anyways, fields just has to play his type of game and that's it, contracts are never players' fault, if a team is willing to pay you a certain amount then you're allowed to sign the contract, nobody's forcing someone at gunpoint to to do anything here

I wish LF wouldn't go on about God and Jesus all the time. Have you SEEN his twitter. It's really disrespectful and irresponsible to keep spouting that nonsense and trying to influence other peoples beliefs. Especially as he is regarded as 'educated' by many NBA fans and in a position of influence.

Made me lose all respect I had for him.

Will never understand why this bothers people so much. "Disrespectful and irresponsible?" How exactly?

That is far too big a question for me to be bothered to answer on here.

All I'd say is

1) go and discover the wonders of evolution and genetics (scientific facts).

2) go and discover the problems religion causes around the world.

It's irresponsible.

It is irresponsible of you to spout nonsense on the internet. It is irresponsible of you to derail this thread with garbage.

Mods, if you move this to the podium, I will provide a better response to his points.




As for Fields, it was a big change going from ~$750,000 to ~$6,000,000. I'm sure that would add some pressure for any person, and if he was injured at the time it is quite easy to understand why he had difficulty playing at his best.

Weak.

In regards to LF: Another problem is the lack of defined role. I mean, what's the long term plan...

if it bothers you, don't follow him on twitter. why be such an asshole in life?

i think LF will have a very defined role on the team. he'll be asked to rebound, defend and to hit open jumpers (once his confidence is back). no one should be expecting more from him, simply because that's what he offers. the teams shortcomings shouldn't always fall onto the players like they have in the past.
