Default Jose Press Conference Home in Spain

Hey Belsius, did you hear of this today in Spain? Doug Smith said in his blog today that Jose was holding a press conference home in Spain today just to answer questions on this past season in Toronto and what he thinks the future holds for him.

Anyhow, here's a link and maybe you can summarize for us what was said.

Nothing new, he said he is happy in Toronto but that the Raptors have the last word. He clearly expects to be resign since he said that he wants it to happend as fast as posible cause he cant start training with the national team if he doesnt have a contract with a team.
Also said he wants to play the olympic finals against team USA, since there has been a lot of talk between them.

Like I said, nothing new. I want to see the video though.

OK Bel, maybe you can help us out again with your translation skill because according the Hoopshype translation of today article from Spain, it sounds like Jose can't go through another season of he and Ford.

I love how honest and open Jose is now at home with his country's media. He's not holding back or maybe he doesn't think the news was going to travel back here for us North Americans to read.

I can't blame Jose one bit for wanting to be the starter.

he's in the prime of his basketball life and it would be an injustice to him only playing backup minutes.

Same goes for TJ.

these two can't be on the same roster next year.

I think that's a malicious comment. It's normal for Jose to talk more openly in Spain, where he feels more at home, and knows that his comments have less of a chance of getting blown up. If he says the same thing in english based media, you would see the headlines the next day on ESPN and Yahoo .... Stuff said in Europe goes unnoticed for the most part.

For what I watch on that video, he was mentioning that he got a good relationship with Tj, but he would like to be a starter and he doesn't know how Raptors are going to face the Forderon situation, so in other words he already put the conditions on the table, so regardless which team he wants minutes, and in the whole conversation never said "I", instead he mention "WE", so this isn't just his own decision, bottom line July 1 will find out who really wants Jose an in a week time July 8 will find out where he will go, is only until them that teams can approach him or the other way around, and he want to do this quickly because otherwise he won't be able to play with the national team.
