Sad to see him go but it needed to be done.

Copied and pasted from the Rudy Gay trade thread. I'll miss watching him. Who knows, maybe he decides to come back this summer. Wouldn't that be awesome.

He used to be my favourite player, and I still have a lot of respect for him. Say what you want about his defense, but he is a leader and gave his all every single time he played.

Let's Go Raptors.

Had flaws, but overall is the best point guard we ever had in Toronto.

I hoped he stayed to be longest serving Raptor and put to hall of fame

Tough to see him go, especially after this December-January stretch
He does make players around him better on offense no doubt about it.

Great guy, wish him well

Going to miss Jose, I still remember his first game where he helped us come back with a huge 3. The rest was just history and a Raptor legend was created. Will miss your signature 3 hand gesture as well.

Wish him the best in Detroit and looks like Monroe and Drummond will be beast now with a legit 1st pass PG

I went to Orlando to see the Raps in the playoffs 4 years ago. I was wearing my Spanish Caldy Jersey.

We managed to get into the shoot around. Calderon saw me, picked up his ball and came over to me and asked:

"Did you guys come from Toronto to see us play?"

I was floored that he came over. And stammered out. "We sure did. Have a good game!"

He waved and went back to shooting.

Say what you want about his defense or his contract, but he was a standup guy. I only wish him well.

As I was reading I thought he was going to give you a signature ball LOL, and all I got was he gave you a wave when I finished reading

I remember his rookie season, where he was a bit of overwhelmed by the competition and his jump shot was terrible. He's made great strides during his career, and I wish him well.

Ed Davis was crushed as he made his exit. Calderon was subdued but able to shake hands with media after saying his goodbyes and go on way
