Of course, you can't expect a player like arenas to understand this, but here it goes anyway: he complains that he had 29/5 and wasn't getting love. But Calderon has 15 and 10, those 5 extra assists are worth at least 15 points, because you get 2s, 3s + free throws. Also, Calderon gets 15 points on 50% shooting, arenas gets his 29 on 40% ...

But the biggest blunder he makes is when he says :

An All-Star is an All-Star! He’s playing at a high level. That means, if you take him off the team, that team should fall down if he’s that one guy. An All-Star means that he is dominating the game of basketball. It’s not even about numbers necessarily, it’s about dominating.
Which pretty much kills his all-star aspirations, since his team is not only better without him, but most players on that squad have better numbers than last year ...
