I don't wanna get too far into this, but you'll always see a divide on the Calderon-Ford issue. With younger people more interested in Ford and his individual play, and the older people who know better who enjoy the wisdom and security a gurad like Calderon provides.

You can talk all day about Ford and his ability to find his shot, but I'm sorry, that is NOT a great asset unles it's used properly. Constantly looking to score is one of the worst tings a player can do, especially the PG.

As for the trade. Well Hibbert is what ya give up. On paper at least, and ya get Jawai.

I'll take that.

ONeal is NOT injury prone, he's had two, an ankle (all NBA guys have an ankle at some point) and a Knee, a meniscus, he tried to play on. Are all you guys slagging Oneal health gonna start tearing Brandon Roy to shit now. EXACT same injury and Procedure.

ps. Oneal is a kid, he aint even 30 yet
