Heres the article in an interview with a spanish newspaper. Im going to translate it now, I will have in a while.

http://www.marca.com/edicion/marca/b...o/1105022.html

Here's a really bad translation for babel fish. I assume equipment means team.

Quote:
The BASE GRANTS An INTERVIEW To MARCA.COM AFTER YIELDING ITS POSITION OF TITLING To T.J. FORD

Calderón: "I have sacrificed itself by the Raptors, I hope that me they give back it"
By QUIQUE COMBED
a day after becoming the cession public of the position of titling that Jose Manuel Calderón had done to T.J. Ford, the frontier dweller spoke in exclusive right for Marca.com on the happened thing. And he makes revelations surprising: "the Raptors proposed to me to be substitute, I did not request I". "It could to me have denied or to have mounted a chicken, but that does not go with me". "I believe that to do this it does not change my contract for next year. In case, a more expensive player does to me ". And there is more...

He lacks one hour so that the training of the Raptors begins. Jose Manuel Calderón, who makes shot in solitaire, is called by Sam Mitchell and Bryan Colangelo to a meeting in the office of the trainer.

What happens there?
It is necessary to clarify some things. They call to me, and I thank for it, to speak on the bad march of the equipment. They know that I always contribute ideas so that everything works and think that I am an important player. We spoke over which it happens and they request to me that it resigns to be to title so that is it TJ. I say to them that without problems, that that, indeed, can be good for the equipment. I believe that it is a good option and for that reason acceptance.

But you could haberte denied.
Yes, or to mount a chicken, but that does not go with me. In addition, he would not be the best thing for the equipment.

And when salts of the meeting, what?
I consult with Chris Bosh and Anthony Parker. They say to me that if I believe that he is the best thing, than ahead, who are with me.

Why to them?
One is the player tax exemption and the other the Co-captain. With both I maintain a relation incredible and wanted to know if they supported to me. If they get to say something to me, she had not accepted it.

Think that if had been the other way around, if it is to Ford to that they had seted out it, would have accepted?
Sight, I do not know it. I only know that this is going to be good for the equipment, that we are going to enter playoffs and that we are going to be a winning equipment.

But Jose, you are gambling the contract of your life. And my mother says who is people who of pure good seem idiot...
(it is ed ***reflx mng) This is an equipment sport. It is not necessary to watch after one. In addition, I believe that it gives just as it plays the worse parties of my life of here that the season finishes, my contract of the year that comes is not going to change. In case, a more expensive player does to me. There are values in an equipment that are as important as the numbers.

What hope that happen now?
That we are going to play better, because the second unit is better, those than we left from the bench now we rendered just as if we left holders. Everything is going to be very positive, already you will see it.

I speak of your contract...
I have sacrificed itself by this club. I hope that they me give back it.

What have said your companions to you?
I feel more respected by them now.

The clothes of the Raptors seemed modélico and arrived the declarations from Chris Bosh asking its companions who more were decided quarter in the last...
That in clothes nor has commented. All we knew that that one was a problem. In the NBA that is seen of a different form, more normal. In this equipment all we appreciated and we respected to Chris and we know that he is our more important player.

Calderon. "I sacrificed myself for the raptors, I hope they do the same thing for me too".

The day after the news about Calderon giving TJ the starter job, the spaniard talked exclusively to Marca.com about what happend. And he makes some interesting relevations. "The Raptors proposed me to be the backup, it wasnt me", "I could have said no, or go crazy about it, but thats not my style","I think this doesnt change mi contract for the next year. It actually probably makes me a more expensive player". and theres more...


Sam Mitchell and Brian Colangelo call Calderon one hour before practice...

What happends there?
"There are somethings tha need to be cleared. They call me, and I aprecitate it, to talk about the teams bad playing. They know I like to give ideas in order to make things work and they think Im an important player for this team. We talk about whats going on and they ask me to give up the starting position to Tj. I tell them that no problem, and I agree that probably that can be good for the team. I think thats a good option and I accept it."

But you could have said no...
"Of course, or go crazy, but thats not my style. But anyway, that wouldnt have been the best thing for the team."

And when you leave the reunion, what?
"I consult Bosh and Parker, they tell me that if I think thats the best thing for the team, that go for it, they back me up."


Why them?
"One is the franchise player and the other one is the Co-Captain. I have a great relationship with both and I wanted to know if they backed me up. If they had told me something diferent, I wouldnt have said yes."


Do you think that if the same thing had been asked to Tj, he would have accepted it?
"Look, I dont know. Only thing I know this is going to be good for the team, that we are going to play the playoffs, and that we are going to be a winner team."


But Jose, you are playing with the contract of your life. (Now the spanish interviewer uses an expresion that means, that people may try to use him, because of his "nice nature".)
(laughing), This is a team game. You dont have to look at this as one player. Besides, I dont think that even if I play the worst games in my life now, my contract for next year is not going to change. In any case, it can even make me more expensive. But there are some values in this team that are more valuable than the money."


What do you expect to happend now?
"I think we are going to play better, because the second unit has improved now. You will see, everything is going to be positive."

I was talking about your contract....
"I sacrificed myself for this club, I expect them to do the same."

What did your teammates tell you?
I feel more respected now by them.

I never for a second thought that Jose volunteer himself to be a backup... no player will do that. I figured that this was BC's plan to shake up Sam & players and to showcase TJ for a off season trade... so I am not surprised to read this.

Raps starting lineup might suffer but their bench, with addition of Jose & Bargnani, is much stronger now.

Well, TJ will get his market value higher and then hopefully he gets traded for a valuable swingman. That we desperately need.

Hey Belsius if you look at the proper translation for "montar un pollo" will be:To cause a chaotic situation, a make a huge commotion. To make a big fuss.
And yes Marca is a crappy sensationalist newspaper, they like to make headlines out of crap!!
