For 3yrs he was injury prone and at times outplayed by other borderline starters. A month ago he was shitting the bed off the bench and his D was lamented on every single game. Now he's back to being some great PG and the player that was brought in to replace him should be traded (most are saying) after 15 games (10 or so of which playing while hurt). More than anything i'm sick and tired of the back and fourth love/hate this fanbase has with this guy and the conversations currently going on that have happened far too much in his tenure, specifically the last 5 years or so.
Semi-related. You're a big leafs fan correct? I've heard the comparison that Jose's relationship with the raps and the fanbase was similar to Kaberle's with the leafs and that fanbase. Is this true-ish?
