Wizards Arenas' Infatuation With Jose Continues

Gilbert updated his blog yesterday to discuss his world tour and stopped in Spain and visited Barcelona. He had this to say about Spain and .... well ..... Jose.

He’s not actually from Barcelona, but the Spanish are Spanish. Actually, they have a lot of pros in the league, believe it or not. They have Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Calderon, Garbajosa, Navarro and Rodriguez and Fernandez from Portland. That’s about seven players.

Oh man, but all of the interviews started the same way. I had an interpreter by my side but I heard all the Spanish I needed to hear: “Calderon.” I was thinking, Oh, shoot. Here comes the El Calderon. So, I had to do a lot of speaking about him. It was funny though.

They were very knowledgeable fans about basketball out there. They were asking me questions that I haven’t heard since I was a rookie. They did their research on questions, I was very surprised. I thought I was going to get the same questions … “How does it feel to sign a $100 million deal? … How is your injury? … Can you get the Wizards out of the First Round? … How does it feel losing to Cleveland?” I thought I was going to get the same old questions that reporters say in the states. But, no, they were pulling out some great stuff.

The Barcelonians – I think you can call them Barcelonians – told me, “Yeah! You saved the best city for last!”

I think his words about Calde and the Allstar got taken a little out of context, and he may feel a little bad cause he respects Jose, so now he just likes to show theres nothing bad between them.

He also recently said in an interview with Marca that (i am paraphrasing) after watching him more this season that Calderon is definitely an all star in this league and has the ability to be an MVP candidate.

Quote:
Dejó tibio a José Manuel Calderón en su blog cuando dijo que no debería ir al all star. ¿Ahora ya lo ve a ese nivel?
Sé lo que dije pero a los dos días de verle jugar mi opinión sobre él cambió totalmente. A Calderón le vi al principio y cuando llegó no había demostrado gran cosa pero ahora le han dado la oportunidad y ha probado que es un grande. Tiene un status de MVP, con el mejor balance de balones perdidos y recuperados. Es madera de all star.
In the same interview he said the Lakers can begin another dynasty with Kobe and Gasol. So seemingly he has gained some respect for the spaniards.
