The Future of Landry Fields

One of the major stories of last year was the emergence of Landry Fields, a guy most of us had never heard of before draft night.  In the P&T draft recap, Seth said that he was "at a loss for words" at the selection.  But as the season progressed, it later became apparent that this nerd from Stanford could ball.

Landry finished the season with 9.7 points per game, 6.4 rebounds per game, and 1.9 assists per game, at an average of 31 minutes per.  Do these look like the numbers of a starting 2 guard in the NBA?  Probably not.  But as anyone who has watched a Knick game last year, particularly a pre-Melo one, will tell you, numbers don't  tell the whole story with Landry.  He's a "glue man," doing little things that inexplicably seem to help the Knicks win.  

But his numbers dropped off after the trade.  He found scoring chances hard to come by with two stars on the team, and going into the next season, one of the story lines will be how he plays.  

So the question is, what is the future of Landry?  Will he continue to be a starter?  What aspects of his game does he need to improve?  Will Spike Lee continue to wear jersey's that go to his knees?  It's questions like these that make me pray to Young Based God every day for a basketball season.
