His three couldn't shoot, his two def. couldnt' shoot and didn't mov well without the ball, both his back up 4's are absolutely useless on offence, and Bargnani
was hurt all year. Oh, and they didn't have a center....
It's pretty fucking hard to do a lot in the scenario man. So you like Lowry better, here's to hoping I will to, but for now, ease up, Calderon
isn't as bad as you claim, he just isn't man.
I have never ever ever claimed Jose is a bad player. Bad defender? Yes. Fallen off as a penetrating PG to the rim? Absolutely. I've said multiple times that he'd be the best backup PG in the NBA.
I think hes a great backup and a fringe starter if theres an injury. Thats the role he'd play on 85+% of NBA teams right now. If we're going to become a good team it isnt going to be with him at PG. I'd love to keep him longterm if he'd accept a 6th man role and a lot less money next year and going forward.
