They are not facing one another and neither are exactly All-Star caliber players (in our minds) but both are in action tonight. Who am I talking about? I think you know who.
Last year's Golden Child: Nico "The Holy Grail of Basketball' Batum!
This year's Golden Child: Landry "I can't sell my own jersey" Fields!
Nico Bats gets to show D-Rose how defense is played as he and the Blazers face off against the Toronto Bosh... er, Raptors. Meanwhile Landry Fields hopes to help the Knicks stay above .500 against the Lakers who are on the 2nd night of a back to back. Can Kobe guard Fields? Impossible! Is Fields better than Kobe? Is that really a question?... of course he is!
Oh yeah and Miami plays tonight. Big whoop. Blake seeks to make Clevelanders cry some more, Kevin Love will get his double double against the Pacers and the Sloanless Jazz hope to slow down the white hot Phoenix Suns. Giddy up!
*Disclaimer* Please know that all Landry Fields related shots are no longer related to Tim S. It's more of a shot at the 'nerdosphere' than anything else. Tim, you're A-OK in my book, buddy.
