This is going to come out terribly, but I can tell, you haven't played basketball or know someone, who has played basketball at a high level. Sorry, I know it sounds mean and assholish, but it's true.

We actually look better with Calderon, we looked better on the defensive end.

You can not run and play smash mouth defence. Well, you can, but by game 60, you'll be done and be lazy. We need to commit to either being a true running team or a half court team that wants to play defence. Not this hybrid bullshit.

And please stop with the Calderon bullshit. Guys don't run their lanes on this team, when we DO run. We're a damn fine unit running when we have Amir, Jose, Ed, DD on the same floor as they run their lanes well. Some of these other guys, are out to lunch.
