Honestly, the knocks on Jose right now are hilarious. Simply hilarious.

Every PG in the league misses guys on alley oops. I've seen Deron miss them to Kirilenko numerous times. It happens and if we were examining every PG in the game we'd see the same flaws. No one is perfect.

The problem as has been reiterated is our wing play is not good enough. Plain and simple. Jamario and Joey are below avg. to avg. players at best. They're not good transition players as well. Alot of you guys are saying its the PG who needs to run a transition game. How can this happen when the guys you're going to pass to are terrible? Look at the best teams in the league, those who push the ball and the one thing you'll notice is their wing guys are freakishly athletic and are guys who can also hit a pull up jumper or make the smart pass when they're cut off. Who on our team can do this? Jamario? Joey? No.

Jose runs the offense through our bigs and when our bigs are running in transition we look a lot better. When our bigs are slow or are behind the play we look terrible.

Alot of this criticism is hilarious.

Jose's biggest weakness is his defense. His lateral quickness is severely lacking and that's something he HAS to work on in the offseason. The rest? He's fine.
