    Default Fields...

    At first i was kinda excited about him coming over even though it was well documented we overpaid, and it was just to block a nash trade, i still thought he could bring something to the table.. BUT... i never thought this could happen, but fields has me wishing kleiza was starting.. T-ross or anderson needs to get the nod ASAP because this guy is playing like crap and dont really bring anything to the starting unit that anderson cant.. kleiza brings the offense at least and i just wanna see ross play through his mistakes to really take in his game. i know its only been 5 games but this is ridiculous and i cant help but feel like if we had a LITTLE scoring from the SF we could have won the close games we've had so far

    thoughts?

    Even I didn't think Fields can be this bad.

    He reminds me alot of Chris Jefferies and that folks is a very bad thing.

    I wanna hear what BC has to say now. This man sucks, he botches layups, passes and I have not seen him make 1 jump shot. He looks funny and slow footed on the court, it hurts.

    I have a theory: there is a player for the lithuanian national team, he once was one of the best shooters on the team, then he started dating this hot, blonde, singer with fake tits and after about 4 months he went on the coldest shooting streaks ever, like 2 for 34, he eventualy started shooting better but not as deadly as he once did, so all in all it's not landry we should blame for his shot completely disapearing, it's his fake titted girlfriend

    hahaha, nice theory! 9-10 doctors agree silicon is bad for your shot.

    Seriously though, it's all mental. He's lost his confidence and is over thinking things.

    Agree 100% on this being all mental. Unless he has a bad case of early onset arthritis (and there is a guy in my oldtimers league with twisted fingers from arthritis that shoots better than Fields) then he needs to get himself to a hypnotherapist really soon. Clear that shit up.

    He came from a team that had players demanding double teams. He was able to get open and make the cuts that scored him most of his points. He cant do that here because his man doesn't need to leave him. Nobody on the Raps demands a double team. Our ball movement is shit and the paint is clogged. Yes, he has his own problems...but its not him, its us.

    you may have a point but fumbling fast break layups and "the layup" vs OKC are prime examples of Fields being his own worst enemy.

    I think at this point a move to the bench could do nothing but good. Takes some of the pressure off of him and hopefully he can relax.
    Everyone said he was best fit as a sixth man, why not try him out there?

    Bryan got screwed by the D'Antoni effect.. Fields' best season was under D'Antoni. D'Antoni just knows how to create space for guys and to get the pressure off of them. Fields' was horrible under Woodson, and even worse with Casey.

    If we still had Triano, I have a feeling that Fields' would have been much, much better. I see Bryan doing a magic act here, similar to what he did with Turk a couple of years back. The Suns were interested in him when they were considering trading Nash to NY in the summer.. I'd trade him for anyone on the Suns' roster - even Beasley at this point.

    I don't think the salary works, but the guy I'd want is Jared Dudley. Decent defender, decent shooter, good hustle and glue guy. Everything Fields was supposed to be at about $3.5-$4 mill per. (Which is what Fields should have gotten)

    I completely agree with this. Not only does it mean he can't get his own offense going, it means he can't contribute in the ways he normally would by swinging the ball and making the Garbo plays. He's a system player and right now there's no system to play in, just a bunch of guys jacking up shots as soon as they touch the ball. Last night's me-first display by most of the team (and especially Bargs) was disgusting.

    Jared Dudley is playing shitty too this season, but Fields has to improve a lot to catch up to Dudleys shitty play

    I just chalk it up to separation anxiety from his girlfriend Elaine.

    Dudley also has been thrown in at SG which he isn't fast enough for. He isn't a supreme wing defender, but he can play decent D against most other SFs, which is still a big upgrade for half the price.
