If he were just a decent back up, nobody would even comment on him.

Let it be as it is, I'm pretty certain it will all workout in our favour as fans, and I for one, will support the guy fully no matter how it players out, dude gave his all on my fav team, I can ask no more of a player, and performance wise, he did a fantastic job trying to run team full of shitters for quite a while. If he were a top 5 PG, he might have won them 2-3 more games, but he isn't and I'm ok with that. i wish more people were, its not hard to swallow when you just look at it logically. If its such a problem for others, and all they have is negativity towards the situation, I can dig it, but I think that there might be issues people need to work out on their own in that scenario because the reality is, Jose, is a good player and deserves a bit more respect, dude gave his all here, and even now, when 90% of the players in the league would be making his current situation into a sideshow, he's being a pro and not denigrating the franchise even though many think he might have grounds to.
I agree completely on his prefessionalism, I admire him for that. As for your comment about if he was a decent backup nobody would comment on him, most think he starts and should be a backup and would be a backup on 20 teams in the NBA. Therefor when he is starting those people will talk. So those comments come from the debate of whether he should be a starter or a backup. Guys like that always garner discussion and are at time polorizing.
