Good post, because it touches on a point many here forget.

This is not one on one. This isn't fantasy.

You're rebuilding and have a team leader, and and a very smart and selfless PG who only helps create and perpetuate a good room. This is very valuable. On top of that, he's just as productive as almost every single guy that people here constantly wish they had out side of a few superstars, which, I'm not sure what reality some people live in, but you aren't likely to just go out in pluck from wherever they are.

It's not as simple punching up the espn trade generator and making an allstar team happen.

Be happy with a guy Like Calderon, because should lightning ever hit, and we DO manage to get a really promising young point guard, there are very few better guys to have around to help them out.
