New York Knicks guard Landry Fields, who was drafted with the 39th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft after leading the Pac-10 in scoring as a senior at Stanford, was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Fields was the only second round pick named to the First or Second Team. He finished fourth in the Rookie of the Year voting, which was announced last week, behind Blake Griffin, John Wall, and DeMarcus Cousins.
Fields played in all 82 games for the Knicks, averaging 9.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. In addition, he starred in a tremendous video for Modell's and Spike Lee sported his jersey courtside. The Knicks advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2004, but were eliminated by Boston in the first round.
Fields is the third former Stanford player named to the All-Rookie Team in the last seven years. Brook Lopez was selected to the First Team in 2009. Josh Childress was selected to the Second Team in 2005.
