PLAYERS: Landry Fields
TEAMS: Toronto Raptors
If I were to guess who will be one of  the biggest jokesters on this Raptors team this season, I'd say Landry Fields will be one of them.   The Stanford alum has a good personality and is a guy that would keep the mood light in the locker room.  This 2012-2013 Raptors roster is full of different personalities which, as a group, should mix well on the court.  Fields was living it up big time in New York last season but now has an opportunity to play a bigger role on this year's Raptors team.  I look forward to see what he brings to the team, both on and off the court.Check out Sean Francois (Hoop Heads North) and myself as we chat with Landry about hoops, Michael Jackson and Canada at the end of Day #1 practice:Stay tuned for more interviews from Raptors training camp here in Halifax!'Like' us on Facebook!Subscribe to RAPS TALK, our audio podcast on iTunesIf you don't have iTunes, you can subscribe hereFollow @hiphoopjunkies on Twitter
