I believe Antoni will finally give in and remove Fields from the starting lineup soon
Im currently undecided, Shump or Smith?
We might be better off having Shumpert start because of his defense. Theres two starters that bring close to nothing defensively. You often see their opponents have a career night against them. I dont think i need to say any names

Since Shumpert is on the verge of being better than Wade soon I'm going with him. Fields might work better with B. Diddy because of the off-the-ball play/passing combination.
He is no where close to being an elite SG
An elite defender hell yea I wouldn't be surprise if he's the best perimeter defender in like a year or two but overall best SG he will never be he doesn't have the offensive game.
^ This guy and all this humble stuff
Its ok fam, we waited years for a player like Shumpert. Hes like having Sprewell again but a better version. If we had Spree in the mid 90's instead of Starks we woulda beat the Bulls
Has to be Shumpert. He doesn't have an outside shot but Fields does not either so lets compare.
Fields has no outside shot, he can drive, pass decently on pick and roll and play above average defense.
Shumpert has no outside shot, he can drive much better than Fields, he can pass better, his defense is awesome, he is faster, he is more athletic and he is tougher.
Nod goes to Shumpert.
I would say Smith but you need Novak and Smith coming off the bench and I like the cohesion between Davis and Smith.
Fields should be the backup SF to take minutes for Melo when he gets tired.
Fields has been much better this year but Shumpert is becoming more of a factor in games, especially down the stretch with his defense.
Make Fields a role player or sixth man at best.
If Shumpert can stop jacking up 3's early in the shot clock and consistently attack the basket than I want him to start. Another reason the argument for him to start is good is because Lin gets lit up everytime we play a good pg. Lin's on the ball defense is horrible, and Shumpert can help him out.
I hope Dantoni has Shumpert guard Lin in practice so Lin can get better playing against above average defenders.
Both fields and Shump are inconsistent from the outside but this team more then anything needs defense.
I would love to see Shumpter starting from here on out
Smith is mad underrated.
Allan houston, should come out of retirement and school these young boys
Shump though, he may be inconsistent right now but he's really improving taking it to the rim & his shot will only get better the more mins he gets.
The only concern i have with Fields being sent to the bench, is he might turn out like Douglas and lose focus and we really dont need that.
