    Fields should start for now. If Smith comes off the bench and shows he can by dynamic, and a team player, then maybe he can earn the starting job.

  2. I think Fields should start. He obviously has a established rapport with Jeremy Lin, and that’s a priority right now.

  3. Mike Patton says:

    Fields should start. But I think that the clutch minutes is where the difference could be. Fields could be watching while Smith is playing the clutch minutes.

  4. ~Dos Centavos says:

    Landry all day. As aforementioned, he and JLin work very well together. JR is doing his thing off the bench. D’Antoni has a lot of these decisions to make.

  5. CMR says:

    I still kind of worry about J.R. Smith. It’s feast or famine with him. He can be hot, and make some amazing shots, and athletic plays. Or he can be off, shooting crazy air balls, and making bad decisions, and taking “what in the world are you doing ??” type shots.

  6. Cashous says:

    J.R Smith should start because he is good and athletic. Landry Fields is gonna be the 6th man.
