It's a matter of preference, really, but it stands to reason that he keeps refering to the "slower, steadier" version of Ford as being a better starting PG for our team, in his opinion. That's the thing, though - with Calderon, you KNOW what you are going to get game in, game out. With Ford, one never knew, to this point in time at least, which version of him would show up on any given night. And that's why Jose should start. QED.
i think his point is that if you, and we, and us and them and i know what you're going to get from calderon, then the appeal for ford as a starter is that in everyone involved not always knowing, there's that undefendable element that ford brings. the uncertainty that keeps opposing guards on their heels and scouts scratching their heads.
