He's a great team first guy who plays it safe and says the right things so everyone loves him but without guys to carry the team he can defer to he's not worth the money we're paying.
Jose is a more than adequate defender when the whole team decides to play defence. He works very well within the structure of the team's offence, never disrupting the flow and always looking to feed the hot hand, if any is available, while taking his own shots when the situation warrants it. Forgetting his salary for a second and acknowledging that he could be a bit more aggressive with his shot at times, what more do you want from him?
