I completely agree with you.

Of course he was disgruntled not to have his spot back.

Point guards need time to work with there team, you can't expect a guy to come off an injury like that after being out for so long to play at the level hes capable of playing.

When he came back, the team was use to playing with Jose. Things weren't working for him so he tried to score more to get back into the starting lineup. Just guessing here.

I think everyone wrote TJ off way to fast, but its not like we can't afford to Calderon is a promising young PG. Although I would have liked to give TJ one more year a summer, and training camp to get back to form but since they both wanted to start Bryan Colangelo / Mitchell had to make a choice.
