Default Jose Calderon, 6th man or starter?

For those who've seen Jose from his early days have seen him go from a no name bench warmer, to a legit point guard with international experience. Having said that, I also find his style of play to be frustrating at times. One glance at his stats show his TO rate to be phenomenal among PG's (2nd only to CP3 in assist/TO rate), which is not a bad thing per say; but it also represents his unwillingness to take chances and gamble. Meaning, Jose will manage your offense efficiently but he won't by any means take charge. When Toronto had TJ, and now in Jack, both of these guys would control tempo and if need be takeover for stretches of time to motivate and set a tone for their teammates. Now and back then, I preferred Jose coming off the bench simply because when Ford and now Jack get out of control, or the offense becomes stagnant, Calderon would come in and re-establish control to some degree.

Now note this is just my opinion and I welcome any thoughts and comments regarding the issue.

He`s been outplayed all season and should be a 6th man. In fact late in close games i`d rather see Banks out there.

At the same time, i think we currently have like 3 threads on this topic.

I think he should be an 8th man... Amir and Weems should be ahead of him... I think he doesn't give you enough for this team to keep him as a 6th man, even though I could see Jack being the backup if we had a two-way SG stud...

In fact, Banks, Amir, Weems, Wright are better. But 8th man sounds about right.

Jack is a slower version of TJ Ford. He also does not shoot as many air balls on lay ups like tj did. lol but hell you gave it your best try lol

we also get scored on more... his offence is overrated, his defence is null and void... if we had a stud SG that was a shutdown defender then fine... but we don't and his lack of resistance on the ball puts way too much pressure on our bigs...

The Jose era needs to come to an end, it's gotten us nowhere. And it is getting worse. Cut him loose!!

He's not playing well. Thing is, he'll have an awesome game and we'll forget about his mediocrity for a little while. Hopefully BC deals him.
