Calderon hopes he doesn't get traded

Quote:
But as he cares for his son, the point comes across loud and clear from Jose Calderon:Toronto is like a second home and regardless of what happens with the rest of the Raptors, he canít wait to get back.

ďIíve been there five years, I love that team and want to get back to the playoffs and win games, thatís all that matters,Ē Calderon said in a telephone interview Wednesday.

ďI feel good about the team and the city and winning games. Thatís all I care about. I have a house in Toronto, friends there; if I leave itís going to be very hard.Ē

I hope he gets a defensive coach right now and improves. Otherwise, he's out.

honestly i only thing Josedid bad with Turk..and his defence was exposed cuz 80% of the teams defence sucked.

If we get defensive wings then he would be fine to stay

maybe but with so many maybe we can insert toronto in a bootle, no ?

i thnik after five years and not so great years, i must find some to rebuild a path in his career.

go see anywhere else, i'm sure you can get a good team and go on the playoffs.

Default Welcome back, Jose!!

I stated in another thread that we need to tank to rebuild, so the defenseless Jose is welcome.
Perhaps he trains the defenseskills of our wings

why is he treated the same way Hedo is
calderon wasn't whinning this year when he was a back up
it is Calderon position to have the ball in his hands
Turk created a new problem by comming to Toronto
and doesn't want to admit it

Jose's problem is that not only did he have a bad year on the defensive end, but also on the offensive end. When he was racking up assists, I really had no problem with his defensive skill set due to the fact that he was also a great shooter.

Sadly, he fell back this year. He needs to attack the basket and show some physical play in order to stay on this roster. I think if the right offer comes he needs to go, but if I had to choose I'd rather keep jose and get rid of turk.

Its only bad in combination with those two.
Jose CAN pressure the ball handler and clap his way on defensive end.
It falls apart when he has to help others or when he can't rely on help from others

Ok i have to jump in on this thread lol. Jose is all team, he loves Toronto and he puts his team in front......he plays for the name on the front of the shirt where most in the NBA play for the name on the back of the shirt.This guy is a role model when it comes to how a professional player should carry himself both on and off the court.
You let Jose play his game and facilate and our offence attack will be just fine, however if Jose is forced to change his game for the goodness of Hedo then you will again see a drop in Joses play. If Jose stays then Hedo will has to go !

Again I dont hate the guy and never have personally... I think he's a great person to have in the locker room...

But can you please comment on his Defence

His lack of it

His work ethic behind trying to improve it?

To me it seems to be getting worse and worse every season...

Ontop of that the clapping needs to stop when his man Shoots a jumper in his face and he refuses to get a hand up and jump.
