Calderon hurt by boos

Quote:
The Raptors were trailing the Celtics by a basket when Calderon shot an airball, hardly a rare occurrence in any NBA game any night, when the boos started tumbling down.

Forget that undermanned Raptors would go on to stretch the Celtics almost to the limit with Chris Bosh in a Cleveland hospital after nose surgery and Hedo Turkoglu at a Toronto hospital getting a CT scan on a nose injury of his own.

That was the moment of the night that hurt Calderon more than anything.

I feel really hurt today when I was out there and we missed a couple of shots and several fans booed us, said Calderon. I took it a little bit personal (because) I give a lot to this team and it was a tough situation.

Were trying to win, were trying to go to the playoffs and it was a tough one for me.

When we say we have to stay together, weve got to stay together for real. Everyone wants to be in those playoffs. If we miss one shot and we dont have the people with us, its tough to play like that. It was a tough one.

Good. He's the reason why we have the worst defensive rating in the NBA.

I only believe in booing a guy on my team if he isn't trying or isn't being a team player. Caldy is doing all he can, he just isn't very good.

Not cool.

New York's worse - they would've started 'F-I-R-E T-R-I-A-N-O' chants 10 games into the season. Speaking of which why haven't our Toronto faithful done this already??

The only way i'll stop booing Calderon is if he takes a massive paycut cause he SUCKS.

booing jose for missing a three pointer was wrong. it is probably the same people who boo when the team doesn't score a 100 to give their precious slice of pizza.

+1 - My thoughts exactly!

My initial reaction was: "he deserves it"...and "now you know how the fans feel when watching you play", but that's more out of frustration and being irrational.

He's a good guy, but just doesn't do a good enough job of defending or creating for his team mates.

I can see him playing well in Orlando where Howard can make him look a lot better (like what happened with Hedo).

You can't be the worst defensive player in the league AND shoot airballs and not expect to get boo'd.

Hey if he was not playing shitty D every game, i would have not booed. But that game he was just playing bad no matter who he was guarding. Shit hit the ceiling for me when barny shot an airball and then jose followed, so i booed. I saw jose's frustration when the threw his towel on the floor after the booing.

Jose definitely shouldn't be booed, nor should the rest of the team.
The Raps were missing their franchise player and still managed to put up a fight against one of the best in the east.

If anyone should be booed, it's Andrea Bargnani.
A first-overall pick and arguably our 2nd best player, who can't pick it up while the main man is out.
All he does is settle for the J, over and over again.
If I were Triano, I'd tell him "go to the basket or sit on the fucking bench"

I didn't think his defense was that bad today (yesterday). He was doing pretty good compared to his usual bad defensive presence. We were actually in the game and had a shot when he was on. He didn't deserve to be booed.

Jose is not shooting the ball well. He needs to start hitting the gym overtime, like Ray Allen, Demar Derozan and Sonny Weems do. He's allways been a good shooter. The fact he's not shooting well now is because he's not putting in the work required! Get in the gym at night and start putting up a couple hundred extra shots each night and his shot will come back!
