Showing that i'm not biased against Jose by any stretch I will admit that in the past week he has shown a lot more creativity, driving and dishing and not always playing it safe which is what our team needs and the results are obvious. I've been critical that his safe approach is only successful against crappy defenses and the last week has shown that when he plays a bit more aggressively and lets' loose on the reigns a bit he can be effective against a better defensive unit.

If this trend continues, AND he works hard on his defense I could see him as a good starter for this team, should BC elect to unload TJ, but the realist in me doesn't see that happening. THere is more trade value in Jose once he's got a big contract due to TJ's injury problems... or he'll keep them both given we know Jose is willing to play a backup role if it's towards winning.
