takes a significantly smaller role. It's hard to see Jose being a great fit for the long run. We'll see.
I dont think he cares. People seem to project a lot of negative on Calderon
when really, he's always taken some serious disrespecting by that franchise like a pro, and with a smile.
What I'm seeing, he simply has tried to change up his game to make the arrangement work, which is ultimately the best possible reaction you can get from a guy. Last night several times I saw the bench, he and Lucas sit together, and they cheers together and they laugh along with each other. I think Jose truly see's it as a partnership where he and Lucas can help the team win. Its incredibly uplifting actually.
Jose has money, he knows he will get more for at least another 3 years. Dude is a grounded family man, he isn't looking to drive 8 Bentleys I don't think. So I think we will see more of the same. Him working hard, staying positive, and being a leader. Except now he knows he and Lucas are there to shoot, and shoot he has, and pretty well.
