    I hope he does come back as the same player he was early on in the season, but I wouldn't bet on it as a GM. I think I'd take the safe one and trade for O.J. Mayo who's a beast when on.

    Since the 2008 postseason games there havnt been any oponents defender
    that could stop Ray Allen playoff performance. Especially when the trio of
    "Rondo-Ray-Peirce" got down and dirty to run a tri-angle offense in the 2009
    postseason games when KG was out with a season injury.

    Minimum-wage rookie Landry Fields started all 82 Knicks games lastseason
    shooting 50% from the FG, 6 rebounds, 2 assist, 1 steal, 1 to, 9 points,
    in 30 mpg. Fields precision movement on the court showed multi-positional
    talent with great hustling IQ without the ball.
    All of the above single-stats equal-up to a 2nd season Landry Fields being
    one of the top-3 players for the 6th Man of the year award.
    However....the Knicks organization and dum-dum coach Dantoni did not
    put any effort towards getting a veteran "starting-SG" before July 1st. to
    go between PG-Billups and SF-Melo, so SG/SF-Fields and PG/SG-TD could
    bring a helluva dynamic energy off the bench next season.
    The Knicks predraft camp coaching scouts were directed to only look at
    the young SG in the 2011 draft-class, not the valuable rebounding/boxingout/shotblocking
    bigmen in the 2011 draft-class (foolishness if u ask any NBA analist who
    watch the new Melo-Knicks.). If Iman Shumpert is not impressive at the
    PG spot Knick-Fans will wonder if keeping Corey Brewer wouldve been a
    wise move.

    As for the Knicks performance after the "Carmelo Anthony" trade
    Knicks-Fans need to go to Melo's stats as a Knicks.....37 mpg,
    20 shot attempts to average 26 points, 3 assist, 6 rebounds, and 2 to.
    These type of stats prove Melo became the number #1 option on offense
    where the ball went through Melo's new creative-moves more than any
    other Knicks players hand on offense. Amare creative offense with the
    ball was demoted on the offensive-end of the court from taking his 22
    shot attempts per game to just 15 shot attempts per game, changing
    the Knicks offensive-set, and movement around to follow Carmelo's
    peremeter-scoring 92% of the time.
    The big change was with Amare inside scoring, the defense motion double-
    team on Amare gave the Knicks peremeter-shooting game 73% on offense
    with 3 players "Gallo-Chandler-Shawn" and that percentage started
    decreasing when big-body Mozgov was put back in the rotation with a
    healthy Turiaf to screen, pick n roll, to add more inside scoring from
    Chandler, Gallo, Fields, and Felton. As the season was going on these
    same Knicks-players were getting more confidence in one-another skill-
    set on the offensive end of the court.

    BUMP!



    He's not quite there yet, but Fields game is reemerging. He's far from being on cue, but it's good to see The Half Blood Prince playing his game.

    Nice.

    1st page of this thread was a great re-read.

    I'm wondering if we'll end up trying to solidify our starting backcourt this off-season, which now depends mightily on the play of Lin from here on out, and end up making Fields a versatile 6th man.

    I'd like to see if Fields could legit spell Melo at the 3, especially when we go with certain lineups moving forward.

    Fields has a unique set of skill. He's a sneaky good off the ball mover, can nail those corner 3s, and has a nose for the key rebound and a desire to get it.

    I'm still not sold whether he should be starting or not. j

    Our PG situation just became very interesting, with Lin, and the subsequent play of Shumpert throughout this year will both have major ramifications on what is going to be a somewhat mild, but offseason of profound effects regarding who we use our MLE on. And the ultimate role Fields will establish here.

    Fields averaged 12.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists in the last 12 games, personally I find it a very good result, especially that there were games where his minutes were limited. He's been doing much better than Shump lately.

    Totally agree.

    His on-man defense is still suspect at times and his three point shot needs to improve, but he's been playing quite well lately.

    Good job Landry now please keep it up for months and years!

    SPOT ON, my man. I'd definitely like to see Fields back Melo @ the 3 in the second unit as a focal scorer. He'd be good along with a Novak for instance, not as the playmaker, but as a receiver [so homo] of the ball [in his mouth] because of the spacing game.

    For now, he has to start.

    You're bang on about the PG embargo. The emergence of Lin has had a huge trickle effect.

    He's been playing well! Thanks for the stats.

    Crazy, if Fields goes from starting SG to backup SF, who will be the next starting SG? Shumpert?

    We're referring to an acquisition as opposed to a current player as a replacement.

    JR Smith springs to mind.
