He's nothing special. he is just a role player. But to get him in the 2nd round, knick fans should be delighted.

Feilds is going to be a very nice player. I think what a lot people outside of NY and even a lot of Knick fans forget is that he was a 4 in college and now he is transitioning to a guard. He is already an excellent defender at the spot and should get better. He doesn't make mistakes, finishes really well, gets you extra posessions with hustle plays, and rebounds at a great clip. Thats his base and I would expect his gaurd skills to get better. The guy has pretty good form on his J, I see no reason why he will not become a good spot up shooter. His handle will improve and again I think he could grow into an all NBA defender. I dont see 5 or 6 allstar games in Landry's future but I see a very very solid NBA starter for years to come

big fan. I have watched him 4 times, and I really, really like his game. He is versatile, and while he may never be a star, he is gonna be a damn good player in the NBA for a while. He for sure made it easier for NY to trade away Chandler, or another young talent for example, something they probably didn't want to do 2 months ago. He just gives NY more options.

He plays very unselfish. Looks to pass first and hustles at all times. He plays the way all players should play. I love him, but I fear we may loose him in a trade.

He's good really the type of player the Knicks need. Never will be an all-star but will always be a solid guy. Lets just hope theres not a thread everyday about him making all of us other than Knick fans hate the guy.

Agreed. He reminds of D-Lee. Maybe not as good of a scorer yet, or ever but he hustles, gets tough rebounds and plays better D. He fills that void left by the trade.
I think he will be a very good player. All star? Probably not but a very good player.

That's actually a pretty good comparison... He's pretty athletic (maybe not as much as Marion), has a much better jump shot, is a great rebounder and a good defender.

Kinda like a guard version of Marion.

I love the guy.. He hustles for everything and works so hard to get rebounds. I said it before, he just has a nose for the ball.. Similar to Kevin Love (obviously not on his rebounding level though).

Kashmir13579
12-14-2010, 11:04 AM
he is the definition of ball-hawk. loose balls, long rebounds, clogging the passing lanes. he does it all, folks. i fear he may be traded for an unnamed 2nd tier all-star.

My comparison would be Doug Christie. I've had the pleasure to watch him in every game with the exception in NO and he is a helluva player. Hustle, hustle and more hustle. The kids a ballhawk, and thats something you dont/cant teach.

I laugh when hes in the shirt of All-Star guards and they have the " who the **** is this kid? " look on thier faces. Defensively hes like dog chasing the ball, always jumping around the ball handler from side to side...lol. He's definetly fun to watch.

Hes developing a pretty decent shot and he flies to the rim, not in vert but in velocity. He looks like Doug Christie to me.

Stop pointing the the ceiling dude. Please. I am so glad he is retired. Talk about a man who let's his wife run the show.

Obviously he was a very good player, I could just never stand the guy or his wife

The most classic moment was in MIL early in the season, Landry Fields had some really good plays and the crowd started chanting "WHO ARE YOU? WHO ARE YOU"? ... when he went to the FT line...lol. that was hilarious.

He's made more of a name for himself since.

Christie was a different kind of player, not a good comparision. He was never the rebounder that Fields already is, I mean Fields is at 7.6rpg already, Doug was usually a 3-4rpg kind guy. but Fields has not shown the passing ability that Doug had yet.

Also Fields is shooting over 52%, Doug was in the low 40's for his career. Again, they have different games.

bovice163
12-14-2010, 12:01 PM
Yup, it's a pleasure to watch him play. He's a very level headed kid, always seems to be in the right place, he can shoot the ball pretty well, and is the best rebounding guard in the league. His ceiling may not be sky high like some of the other rookies, but he is more consistent and versatile than most of them anyway. He's going to be a very very solid player in the league in the next few years. Knicks FO got away with a steal when they picked him in the 2nd round.

the unknown
12-14-2010, 12:18 PM
i would say will be more like WIlt Chamberlain when its all said and done.. what!?!?!

but for real he will not be a a super star.. i can see if he develops a few more pieces of his game he could have an appearance in an allstar game.

Matt Barnes/ Marion combo with a hint of battier and christie

could easily be a double digit rebounder in a couple of years.. and if they get melo he has the potential to be a great 4th option cutting and hitting open 3 point shots..

the main thing is right now he just doesnt make mistakes with uncanny

12-14-2010, 12:20 PM

if you watched him, you know what I was referring to. every single time he did anything positive, he would point his finger towards the roof, and then kiss his finger. Tribute to his wife.
And its chronicled how possessive and controlling his wife was. He was basically on a leash.

i just never liked him. Obviously cause of the finger pointing, and the fact that he was that guy that nobody but his team's fans could like. Bruce Bowen type

CityofChaos
12-14-2010, 12:30 PM
Im not a big fan of him but I acknowledge that hes good. He's been putting up impressive numbers all around lately and you can't hate on a guy that's versatile like Lando.

But a player that I think Knicks fans would love if he was healthy is Kelenna Azubuike. He can pretty much do everything as well...shoot the 3, drive to the basket, rebound, and he's a decent defender.

Tring to figure out what guard or gaurd/sf Feilds reminds me of not in style but just in phyical size and athletism. A young Micheal Finley without the overwhelming offensive game comes to mind, Darell Walker comes to mind. I dont know its tough

Sly Guy
12-14-2010, 12:37 PM

He's a glue guy. Brings intangibles, doesn't blow you away at anything but gives you a little of everything, hustles, doesn't turn the ball over and you don't need to run plays for him.

Love Fields game. Made a few threads about him in Knicks forum. I've seen him play in Stanford and knew he was good, but not this good. He does all the little things, is efficient, rebounds, defends, gets putbacks, and is a ball hawk. He also makes very few mistakes forget abut for a rookie, I mean for any NBA player.

Landry's got game foreal. Excellent pick. I see him as being a really solid rotation player. Something like a Afflalo in Denver. Kinda makes one wonder just where in the hell was this good draft judgement the last 3 years, or did they just get lucky?

Crackadalic
12-14-2010, 02:39 PM
a 6'7 sg who rebounds like hell for his position, moves well without the ball, very efficient and plays good D and he was a 2nd round pick? what were the scouts thinking not having him in their top 100?

NihonJinDesu
12-14-2010, 02:42 PM
Him being a local guy from Los Alamitos... I am a fan of him but even more so because of his hustle.... those are the kind of players that makes people want to improve their game instead of these superstar players that sandbag it and ask for trades

Doesn't have the physical attributes or quite the athleticism, but he reminds me of a right handed Tayshawn Prince. They both are all-around good ball players that make the right plays.

They draft well late, however whenever they had lottery picks it always seemed that all the impact players were taken right before they got to pick.

Late Picks
Chandler -23rd
Nate - 24th
David Lee - 30th
Fields -37th
Ariza - 43rd

Vs

Recent Lotto Picks
Sweetney - 9th
Frye -8th
Gallo - 6th

Knicks should always trade their lotto picks for picks in the late 20s.

I like his game. I was hoping Damion James was gonna develop into what Fields is now. Neither are great jump shooters but they add defense and rebounding. Damion will never be able to play the well because he doesn't have the handles to be a SF but he can be a defensive specialist since he has the quickness of a 2 and the strength of a 3, good length, and attentiveness on defense.

He most certainly has the potential to be an all star one day. He's already the top rebounding SG in the entire league and his shot from 3 is finally starting to fall. When the season is all said and done he could have averages somewhere near 9rpg and 15ppg. If the Knicks continue to perform at a top level, he could get some all star consideration in the coming years.

I'm not a fan of him. I think hes a good player and wouldn't mind having him on the C's. Then I would be a fan.

Now that is an honest oppinion! I love the kids game he does alot of things well and he may not be an all-star but everyone is gonna know his name because of the great plays he makes! I think he is gonna be an upgraded version of Raja Bell! At the same rate i orginally thought he would never get off the bench so who knows he went from an bad college player to something special in 4 yrs at Stanford so who am I to say he can never be an all-star! So I just have to tip my hat to him and say the Knicks better never get rid of that kid because he is the type of player every championship team needs!

He definately has the potential to be an all-star one day. I dont see him becoming an all star starter or a year in year out guy though. Lots of good players who play smart and to there potential make an all star team. Stars on the other hand make 5. I dont see Landry doing that. Still, I love him and I love seeing him getting that follow up dunk and then thinking thats a Landry play

remember back in 2005 when David Lee was a rookie? all we looked forward to was seeing how our 8th pick (Channing Frye) could develop into the next Tim Duncan.

then we see this white kid named David Lee picked up with the 29th pick and are surprised to see some pretty good things. hustles, athletic, works hard, gets boards, smart player. now, this year, we expected to send fields to the Dleague and hoped to see some good things from Rautins. instead, we're seeing this white kid named Landry Fields picked up with the 38th pick and are surprised to see some pretty good things. hustles, athletic, works hard, gets boards, smart player.

Landry isn't white (his Mom is), isnt a power foward, and his best attribute might be his defense. Him and Lee do both move without the ball well and rebound very well

plays some D too, which is much needed in NY

What?
12-14-2010, 08:43 PM
is that a fact, bro?


actually i agree, its his fault he is playing better than 37 players drafted before him, thus getting recognition. thats all the reason in the world to discredit what he's doing.

I think he would know whose name he hears more often :rolleyes:

Landry Fields is the type of ppl that makes elite teams into champions. He is that CRUCIAL role player that separates an elite team from a championship team.

still a fan
12-14-2010, 09:16 PM
He's nothing special. he is just a role player. But to get him in the 2nd round, knick fans should be delighted.

he's a rookie leading all guards in the NBA in rebounds by over one board per game???

rankings for rookie's:

EFF- 3rd
boards-2nd
steals -2nd
pts-4th
double double-2nd
fg%- 1st
FT%- 2nd
min-3rd
assists-6th

Starting SG playing 31.4 minutes but yet he's nothing special:facepalm:

Did I mention he covers very good players and holds them in check?

Did I mention he hustles all over the place and makes plays that don't show up in box scores?

I hope every NBA team thinks he's nothing special, because at the end of the game with another W added to the Knicks win column he will be a major part of why the Knicks won.

Imagine if plays were called for him and he got the ball more often? He is perfect for the Knicks or most NBA teams, he is a major contributor yet doesn't have to have the ball.

But yep nothing special:)

Landry Fields is a wonderful player...he falls under the cliche of doing everything well but not great (well his hustle is great actually.) There are 2 schools of thought on him: the 1st being that he was a 4 year college player so his ceiling isn't as high as other players drafted with only 1 year of college bball experience (ie Favors, Cousins.) But since his arrival at Stanford (during the Lopez years,) he improved significantly year after year in college and put up wonderful numbers (as well as being the true leader) by his senior year. I don't mean to say his upside is as good as some of those young guns, but i do believe he has room for improvement on many facets of his game.

He's a wonderful rebounder--has great timing on his jump, good overall defender. He has an excellent basketball IQ as well; if he develops a midrange jumper and gets a bit more consistent on his 3 point shot, he could definitely be more than just a "glue guy." Definitely steal of the draft thus far....

Good player, def steal of the draft so far. However I feel like NY fans over hype him a great deal. He is a good player and will be a very high quality role player (not a star player). Don't ask if I've seen him play I watch plenty of games. I think he is a real nice piece for this team to, he seems to mesh well with melo and amare.

save the knicks
03-14-2011, 11:48 AM
You uh...you haven't really sen the guy play have you?

I watch him play every night and i have the exact same opinion. Great find in the second round but i think he would most likely be a 6th man for a contender.

Kids going to get paid though thats for sure

I wouldn't know him either, if it weren't for knicks fans. In the games I've seen, he's definitely been solid - a workhorse. One of those guys that fans love to root for.

I think he is a steal being picked so low.

But i also dont like all the hype Knicks fans bring on him, he is nice he would be better of the bench and they act like if he was a future allstar.

Hes got one of the best set shots in the nba, if he works on his handle the can definately be a 15 5 5 guy which is all we need for a 4th option,, what we DONT need if freaking jared jeffries anywhere near the court

My favorite Knick. Smarts and heart. An all-around player who would have fit in in any era. Whether or not he ever makes an All-Star team, I don't know. He isn't really flashy and he shouldn't try to be, and flashy usually get you to the AS game.

If you had a team of Landry's though, you'd be the best in the league.

I'm not sure though that a team like where the Knicks are and seem to be going that his game will be allowed to flourish. He has to defer to the big-two way too much, and though he has been adapting with his 3-ball somewhat (which will help him in the long run), that isn't his game.

If the guy played in Memphis nobody would overate him like the Knick fans. The guy plays 35 minutes and puts up 10 points. Not impressive especially in Mikes system.

Stellar analysis as always. As I have seen your posts more frequently, I'm beginning to come to the premise that Benjamin Franklin was indeed wrong, or at least partially wrong. In addition to his original certainties, there should be a third. "in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes...and brilliant eloquent analysis by domefavors

Anyway yea he is a nice surprise, but i cant say I favor him.

People are so quick to throw everything into a Team's forum. While it may have mentioned a player's name from a specific team, it is a jumping board to talk about any other rookies who are surprising people.

I think this could be a nice discussion about other rookies, instead of the constant circle jerk and arguing that goes on about the same couple teams or players.



**As a Knicks' fan, I happen to love Landry for what he is. A second round steal who plays the game the right way and still has a lot of room to improve. He has very sound fundamentals, a knack for rebounding as he reads the ball off the rim very well, good defender of multiple positions and an improving jump shot. He has made strides from the beginning of the year in multiple facets of his game, most notably defensively. His intensity is always there, but he used to get clowned on by anyone with a good pumpfake and you've seen D'Antoni get on hard for that, and he's corrected it by not leaving his feet as much. As a rookie, he still does, but he's doing a great job of playing within himself as of late. His jumpshot is not pretty, but he's been efficient. The best thing there, is that is something that is extremely correctable. Like at Drazen Petrovic for example: not what you'd call a pure shooter like allen or miller, but someone who, through serious dedication, made himself an excellent shooter.

So I would say that he's the type of player a lot of teams would love to have. I don't see him being an all star, but than again, that's not what our team needs him to be.

Bet you're the fat kid that no one wants really likes in real life.

10 points on 52% shooting and 40% from behind the arc -- leads all guards in rebounding while being drafted with the 39th pick and a 5th option on the team sounds pretty good to me.

Bet the Bulls wouldn't mind having some Landry Fields to replace Bogans. Lol.

:facepalm: x1000. Yeah we'll maybe every single player doesn't score all the time, all though he does have a great fg%.. I can gartentee you if you stole him you would be going crazy over him.

I like his game. I was hoping Damion James was gonna develop into what Fields is now. Neither are great jump shooters but they add defense and rebounding. Damion will never be able to play the well because he doesn't have the handles to be a SF but he can be a defensive specialist since he has the quickness of a 2 and the strength of a 3, good length, and attentiveness on defense.

Fields shoots 40% three-pointers, and has made seventy Threes so Far. I think i anything he's at least a good jump shooter. His game isnt just made up of monster put-back dunks, and Rebounding. I also think he's an underrated finisher.

DoMeFavors,

Nets suck **** This year, and are projected to pick any-where from 1-6, and that pick wont even go to them. Nets traded away Derrick Favors, The #3 pick of the 2010 Draft, who no-matter what any Net Fan says, i still believe has some potential with the right coach/system. The Warriors pick is valuable to (And with all do respect to the warriors, they suck too, so that protected pick can go anywhere from #7 Range to #10 easily.) All to gamble on Deron Staying ( I hope he leaves, and he might), Oh you know whats sad too? Landry is a 6'7 Shooting Guard, and he grabs more rebounds then your 7'0 Center.

btw, Landry averaging 10 points as the 4th-5th scoring option, with Carmelo Taking 20 shots, and Amare taking 20 shots, and Billups, around 15 is pretty impressive Not to mention he's shooting above 50%. (efficient)

Your posts arent intellegent, or relevant to the discussions and you just hate Knicks/ Their fans for no reason.
