Ahh ... the "what if's" regarding Jose not making the All-Star team will never get old.

SportsNation John Hollinger: (3:40 PM ET ) I can't decide. Calderon was a bit more of a slap because they took two injury replacements and still didn't pick him -- I mean seriously, putting Ray Allen on the team ahead of Calderon was just shameful. At least the guys that beat out Manu were having All-Star caliber seasons.
Regarding the Raptors come playoff time:

SportsNation John Hollinger: (4:01 PM ET ) Check out Bosh's numbers -- he's a legit MVP candidate. They have two top-notch PGs in Calderon and Ford, and their role guys are all decent. I would have no problem whatsoever picking them over Orlando. I want to see how Cleveland looks like with the new guys, but pre-trade I'd have taken them over the Cavs too.
