No, BUT at the same time he's definitely one of the best "pure" PGs in the league.

He's been trade bait for about 2yrs now. This summer they shopped him hard and nobody traded for him. Is there some interest from a couple teams, of course but if there was a decent deal to be had he wouldn't be here.

This ain't football, players play both sides of the ball. Yes, Jose would make a really good quarterback, but its like asking Tom Brady and Peyton Manning guard the fastest player on the other team.

Jose's poor defense has been tremendously exaggerated. In a proper defensive system he was actually more than capable last year.

team just don't want Calderon because they don't want to win so many championships so quickly once he comes over.

Jose may not even be a top 5 PG in the Atlantic Division

1. Rondo
2. Williams
3. Kidd
4. Lowry
5. Holliday

Most peoples boards would have these players ahead of him in no specific order.

I like the way he's playing though,Jose is motivated by his upcoming free agent status so it increases the value the Raptors could get in return when they trade him. Thanks Calderon,you've been a good trooper. I hope you win a title wherever you land.

I'm pretty sure Jose is better than all those guys.

Rondo: "I pattern my game after Jose Manuel Calderon."

Did you forget the games against Rondo, Holiday, and Deron Williams last year and this year. The last two games against Lin and Collison, you can stick Jose at the point, and not get destroyed by ball pentration.

Casey did install a great defensive system in Dallas when they won the title with point guards such as Kidd and JJ Barea. In that title run, they stuck Marion on Tony Parker and they had the reigning defensive player of the year defending the rim.

He's top 5 in PG on the Raptors if that's what you meant.

There are a lot of complets PG avobe of Calde.

But, like a "pure playmaker", I think hes better than Irving, Westbrook, Jennings, Rose, etc. I think in this moment only Paul, Rondo and a few more are better than Jose in this aspect. I repeat: like a playmaker.

Sarcasm and all the loaded bullshit aside: if I were building an ideal point guard, he'd have the brain/spacial awareness, passing ability, shooting form and heart of Jose Calderon. Yes, I'd contrive to get someone else's foot speed, core strength, quickness and leaping ability. Yes, he is not top 5 overall in the league, perhaps not even the top 10. But he has a lot of redeeming qualities and a lot to be admired for and I choose to look on the positive side of players like him.

Losing brings the trolls and clowns out from everywhere. If Alan Anderson has another 20+ point game, we'll have the future SF of many years to come on our team, who's also top 5.
