If Fields started todays game what would of happened nothing. fields is a raptor by mistake DeRozan is the Raptors SG make no mistake about it. Hes a kid you want in your franchise.
You here those crickets?? LOL my nba.com app says Landry Fields got 3 seconds in the game tonight..... That can't be right! Is he injured?
T-Mac like attitude? So what you're saying is fairly contradictory. T-Mac looked like he wasn't trying, because he actually wasn't trying. I'm not saying Ross isn't trying, I'm saying his composure and body language is poor, and shows he is expecting to be given something he definitely has not earned this season. He hasn't earned playing time with inconsistent play, and far too many "rookie mistakes". Makes too many silly plays out there.
Demar works hard, and it's definitely undeniable. You yourself (former Demar homer - like myself) said Demar has improved every season. Maybe I should go digging for responses to back it up? If you would like to use his numbers as an argument, than check the season statistics, and it definitely has improvements from season, to season.
I will agree Ross is more skilled than Derozan was in his first year, and obviously a much more athletic player, but I'm not seeing much. He's had three good games (now counting the game vs. Bulls).
Like I said, I'm one of those who will wait and see, but I'm just saying I don't see anything too special out of him. You, anyone on this poster, can give me your opinion, but the only person that's going to change that, is Ross himself.
P.S, I'm not saying Ross can go out there and play to prove me wrong only lol
I didn't like the signing of Fields when it happened and still hate it. He's an end of the bench type player getting paid like a regular rotation guy. He's a decent defender, but no where near a lock down type guy. Sadly his contract makes him almost unmovable. He better get his ass in the gym and turn himself into something resembling a 3 point specialist if he wants to have any sort of career. Really hope he gets packaged in a deal heading outbound. Damn Yogi Stewart situation all over again.
IT comes down to being all Nash's fault for just not simply saying "Im not signing in Toronto" would have helped the franchise out either way. The only justice in this is that that ring hunting A hole is now a spot up shooter on the Lakers and may not make the playoffs seriously fuck Nash. On to Fields.... he does good things plays D, off ball handles but not worth the money and with his limited offensive abilities he cant even rack up easier offense against the opposing teams bench....
Fields is a very standard middle player he doesnt do anything particularly above average with a lackluster offensive game.. Raps have to move him.
Nash had no intention of coming to Toronto yes BC jumped the gun but Nash could of said right away Im not coming to Toronto he had the organization and fans in suspense for a week on his decision. If he didnt keep it secret BC would have went and spent silly money on a player on the decline..

Did you read anything about the decision since? I respect Nash even more, because he clearly knows BC well enough to know that he would've just been a "circus act" (I think the words Nash used) just to sell tickets. That's hardly a dignified end to a career.
FWIW, I think Nash's approach with Toronto was always the same, and that is: if no contender made him a good offer, he would take the stupid amount of money BC was throwing at him and live with being a circus act for the last 2 years of his career.
Truth is i like to give rookies a bit of slack....its tough being a rookie in the NBA. It's a grown man's game. Rookies don't get any respect from officials and veterans take advantage of their mistakes. That being said, I like Ross' game. He just needs to work on being consistent and aggressive. I think it would be foolish to throw him into the starter's role without seeing significant improvement next year.
Fields?? Let's put it this way.....I would rather see Ross start over him. Actually, I was screaming for BC to offer *something* to O.J. Mayo. Mayo ended up with a 1 year 5.5 million dollar salary from Dallas. Fields does nothing great....what's his talent?? To me, he's a bench player for a playoff team...an over paid one (notice the constant theme for Bryan Collangelo??). Fields was smart to sign that offer....Hedo Turkglu was smart to sign that contract......Andrea was smart for signing his contract.....BC is the MORON.
