  • Brotherston, HW.com: Is Landry Fields TO's Shane Battier?

    Or how about Garbajosa?

    Nice article.

    Fields has the smarts to play that Battier role, but maybe not the athletecism. That's the one thing that jumped out at me about Fields when I first saw him in summer league a few years back is his basketball IQ. If he can become more consistent with his perimeter shooting and learns to play smart defense then those Battier/Garbo comparisons would be validated.

          I don't think Battier is super athletic in comparison to Fields, but I give him the edge. He's made a career of defending elite level players from Kobe to Westbrook/Durant/Harden in the finals. You need athletecism to keep up with those guys. Don't have any facts to back it up, but is just my opinion is all.

            Just as much as you need stars you need quality glue guys to win. I think Fields is one we can count on.

              not sure if Fields was brought here for his athleticism though. True the raps didn't actually sign him because of him as a player, but I think he'll contribute more as a defender and a shooter off the bench

                But Battier admitted himself he's never been a great athlete. Landry Fields is actually very athletic in comparison to Battier.

                      Honestly, I don't know either. I'm a realist who is being unrealistically optimistic. Does that make sense

                        One thing that's stood out to me about Landry Fields is that when you watch him play, he's a little faster than you thought he was, a little quicker than you thought he was, a little stronger than you thought he was, and jumps a little higher than you thought he did.

                        Deceptive athleticism.

                          Perfect explanation. He can not be compared to Battier for speed,quickness,athleticism or strenght.
