Also, comparing Vasquez to Jose would be an insult. Calderon put the team on his back on many games.. the team played on a higher level when he was on the floor.
I've yet to see vasquez have any significant impact on the floor,

even salmons is atlease an asset out there when the game is on the line.
Not making excuses for GV (he can definitely play better than he has) but that's a tough comparison to make given that Jose got a lion's share of games to start and was here for YEARS. GV just got here and hasn't cracked 20 min in a contest yet.

Sample size needs to be bigger. He sure as hell looked like he could give Jose a run for his money when he was playing in N.O.
