Default Fox Sports: Top NBA PG's - Jose #10

Pretty accurate

Jose Calderon, Toronto Raptors

The Raptors finally had to make a decision at point guard between Calderon and T.J. Ford, and the way the 6-3 Calderon played last season when Ford was out with yet another injury simplified the decision for president Bryant Colangelo. In fact, it even allowed them to move Ford and take a big gamble on the rehabilitation of former All-Star Jermaine O'Neal. Nonetheless, it still leaves a huge responsibility for Calderon. Although his numbers dropped after Ford returned because of lost minutes, he still played in all 82 games, averaging 11.2 points, 8.3 assists (vs. just 1.54 turnovers). He also shot a blistering 52 percent from the field, 43 percent from 3-point range and nearly 91 percent from the free-throw line. In other words, the 26-year-old Spaniard can shoot lights out, distribute the ball and doesn't turn it over. Maybe it wasn't a tough decision after all.
