Default Jose Wants to Play With Spanish National Team This Summer

Ugh .... maybe Belsius can comfirm this but apparently if Jose's 100% this summer he's going to play with Spain.

I've read the translation about it, look, we can't jump to conclusions.

He said he will get checked out by Toronto and then if he is 100% he guarantees he will be there.....

He might just be saying the right things. I'm sure his preferred move is "I want to play but the raps say I'm not 100% to go"

Then it's not his fault, it's more the raps.

I think he is just protecting his rep.

Don't make me wish they had traded you to Seattle for Delonte West Jose. Don't make me do that.

A part of me would really enjoy seeing him play well for Spain this summer. But just thinking of how much I want him to push himself though a marathon season following that, makes me very edgy.

If he's feeling any pressure then I'm worried. Nationalism is a bitch.

He said he wants to play but it all depends on if he is healthy. He has also said that it all depends on what the Raptors say even though they wont ban him from playing. Theres no pressure on him, people will perfectly understand if he doesnt play,There are enough PGs behind him. If you ask me, just like Gasol he is just not saying anything definitive to keep the media happy. I dont think he will go but who knows. Im not worried.

haha, kind of an interesting situation for you though isn't it Bel? As far as I know there are no other Spaniards on this board, so we're all kind of hoping that Jose doesn't play this summer.

Would you rather he play for Spain this summer or sit out and be 100% when he comes to Raptor training camp?

Here we go again. If he isn't 100% next November , and it's because he played for spain this summer, i'll want him traded. And i'll also hold the Raptors/BC accountable. He's not 22 anymore, and his first priority is the Raptors and after an injury plagued season he's ows them to be healthy and rejuvenated going into next season.

He's 100% now...it's Feb that is a bitch.

I hope the Raps have the backbone to refuse. I'm tired of watching him wear himself out for free while we pay him $8 Mill to recover.

I doubt that he plays. Spain is still incredibly strong without him. They were within a hair of beating Team USA last time in the finals and he didn't even play in that game!

I'm not concerned.... yet.

Worse comes to worst I'll be looking for Belsius to throw himself around Jose's leg and beg him not to go.

I don't think he'll play for Spain this year after reading the translation. He sounds passive and says that nothing is decided yet. It just seems like he wants Spain to be happy for now
