well lets face it, unless spain is playing team USA jose is most likely out there guarding another white guy. Thought i should point that out even though i dont think jose's D is as bad as most.

Opposing PG's get where they want period without great team defence+ refs on your side. PG is the fastest and most skilled position in the league, 1 on 1 nobody is going to stop an elite offensive pg who knows where he's going before the defender.Yes Jose is a little slow due to having oversized calfs that put extra stain on is hammy's but i'm still much more concerend over our C defensivly.

when it comes down to it, Jose just needs to quit being such a pussy and dunk more(this is why jordan wanted him)
