On "bandwagon fans comment" - please note that people who support Jose (especially those who've spoken out in this thread) have been supporting him through troubled times as well, thus being the exact opposite of the bandwagon fans. Please, get your facts straight before throwing labels around.

At this point in time, it's become increasingly clear, at least to me, that the perceived defensive weakness of Calderon is easily overcome on a team that gives a consistent defensive effort, while his ability to run the team offensively is easily at the top of what this league has to offer. Co-incidentally, ask our young ones (Amir, DeRozan, Davis) whom they'd prefer to have as a distributor on this team - and you will probably hear Jose's name shouted back right away. If the Raps want to develop young players, having a leader like Calderon is huge.
