Bill Walker or Landry Fields - Who should be getting the minutes?
After today's game I think Walker should definitely be getting Fields' minutes, most of them anyway. We know Landry has a high IQ, and I like to think he's much better than he is, which is likely, but I'd definitely play Walker now. Sure it'd be great to have the IQ on the court, but how many great coaches were great players? Walker is young too, so picking Fields for development isn't a great argument to me.
I also wouldn't mind Bibby getting more minutes. Is his shots falling like they used to? Far from it, but he doesn't make a lot of bad decisions.
Fields needs to get benched...bring back Walker
Shame on anyone that voted for Landry Fields. Fields has been terrible for most of this season. He is not an impact player like he was when he first jumped on the scene at the start of the season last year. He completely lost his outside shot. People forget he shot 39% from downtown last year and he is around 25% or something like that this year. When he shoots I have the same feelings when I see Jeffries shoot from outside of the post, with my mouth open yelling "what are you doing!??"

Lets compare the players.
Fields is a decent slasher and is only really effective in the fast break or cutting back door. His shot is awful and he does not finish well around the rim anymore. His free throw shooting is the worst on the entire team, I think he is under 60% this year. This guy was a Shooting Guard and yet he cant make a three or a free throw to save his life. His defense is spotty because at times he is good and at times he is terrible leaving outside shooters wide open and always gets screened.
Now Bill Walker...always had the upside but has been stunted by injuries and lack of self discipline. Walker's main struggle is defense because he just simply fouls too much and it gets frustrating seeing him play defense like an angry little kid.
Walker is a much better offensive player than Fields. Walker can hit the open three and can even get red hot and score lights out which he did once again Miami this year. Walker is an insane dunker, better than Fields IMO. Fields can get up but Walker can get up and throw it down and scare you. I love his highlights. Walker is also underrated at driving to the hoop. He does not drive often but when he does, like Shumpert, he can bully his way in and get off good shots.
Walker can rebound very well, which tells me that if he can rebound, then Fields becomes usueless since the only strong skill Fields has is rebounding and Walker is good as well.
Walker needs to get minutes, NOW. I am tired of Fields losing confidence in his shot. When will this guy ever have confidence?
I honestly believe we should not bring Fields back. The guy can't score, plain and simple. He locked his shot and threw away the key.
Walker can score and he is a pure SG! Fields is a forward!
Fields causes our offense to be stagnant.
What does Fields do constantly? He gets the ball, fakes a pass and just passes back or to someone at the three point line....OR he tries to get fancy and tries alley oop passes which fail most of the time.
He is so over rated, and once Amare gets back the starting lineup should not include Fields or I will be pissed at Woodson.
