Hollinger: Calderon is the worst defensive PG in the NBA
 
Quote:

Chris (Toronto)Jose Calderon is terrible, why did you ever think he was good?

Hollinger:
Well, he was good. And offensively, he still is. But man is he awful on defense. I'm having trouble believing that hamstring injury last year fully healed. He's probably the worst defensive PG in the league right now
Quote:

John (Toronto)Thoughts of the Raptors recent play? (last nights game not included)

John HollingerUnfortunately, last night counts. Raps are still threatening to go down as the worst defensive team in history, which makes it tough to win consistently. I will continue to openly question Triano until I see better results at that end.

Holliger is just stating the obvious, been saying the same thing for a grip

Look no one can say that Jose is the best defender in the league he is definitely in the th bottom 5. But defense while important is not everything no one would ever rate Steve Nash as a good defender he would likely rate in the bottom 5 as well. But both have a command of the floor and can make players better. (not that Jose is in Steves league) both can score with high percentages ( again oes isn't Steve but who is ). Thet both are positives even with defensive liabilities.

with calderon - three games of ok defense, three wins
no calderon - hopeless loss to Bucks

with Hollinger - pointless stats and threads
no Hollinger - order and peace

Why compair Nash to Jose? when Nash is clearly a better defender?

Jose is the worst defender in this league,I'm saying that till months and he has no playmaking skills.He can play in this team as a shooter guard,but not as point guard

Calderon did not play against Minnesota and we won that game.

Jose is the worst defender in the league not just point guard.

i'm more concerned about the entirety of the team. i think some of you have already pointed it out: it's not our offense that's the problem, it's the D. singling out one guy in the roster isn't going to help things. the whole team is weak on D.

weswo 12-12-2009 02:31 PM

the whole team is weak on D but it starts on the perimeter ...when we have pg's blowing by our pg's our interior need to step up and defend the shot ..they miss our perimeter players arent stepping up and putting a body on rebounders hence more and more OR's for the other team. Im sick of seeing other pg's playing their best games against us...lol oh i have to comment cant compare calderon to nash ...nash can penetrate and find the open man ...calderon doesnt do much penetrating he usually stays around the perimeter and dishes in ...Nash is a floor general and also is a little quicker then Calderon on the defensive side
