Well folkes its a no brainer. Jose is your starting point guard. It should have been his role right from the beginning.BC did not know what he had in Jose when he traded for ford. It was sam mitchell who wanted ford. The big bucks gave ford the starting job. Last year Jose was solid and his strong play started the controversy. Jose just got stronger as the season progressed last year.Jose is leading or near the top in alot areas stats wise for point guards. He could be setting a NBA record in ast/to ratio. I say he stays as our starter and continues to get more minutes.
Lets look at it another way folks, let say Ford is still playing for the Bucks and Jose is still playing for the Raptors would Toronto trade Jose to the Bucks for ford ? We ran a mini poll at work and everyone said that there is no way that Toronto would trade Jose for ford. Then we flipped the question from the Bucks side would you send ford to the Raptors for Calderon and the answer was yes. Well sounds to me that Jose is our guy and as long as ford is a raptor he comes off the bench.
