Default Lets start Jack

I for one am sick and tired of Jose Calderon's non existent defense and horrible shooting. Lets start Jack and reduce Joses role, and if possible trade him.

If shooting is one of your biggest concerns, why would you want Jack to start? Calderon's a much better shooter so I don't know what you're getting at.

Jose's role shouldn't be reduced, that's ridiculous. Plus, Jack isn't familiar enough with the offensive scheme.

Jack is shooting 28 FG% (10 3PT%) and he turns the ball over more the Jose. And to top it all off his defence doesn`t look much better. I`ll stick with Jose. Not that it means shit anyway, since they`re basically splitting minutes.

Jack didn't proved that he deserves to start, yet. He is quite confused out there, maybe even more than Jose. I don't think Jose OR Jack is the problem though ... the overall defensive game lacks toughness, playing both Jose AND Jack in critical comebacks makes us very soft, and that's Triano job to figure out the right solution. I would like to see more Jose OR Jack along with Belinelli or Wright or Derozan. Wright is good on defense, DeROzan doesn't demand the ball while still effective collecting garbage points on offensive rebounds / put backs.

Jack and Calderon are only tied in one category and thats defence.Both suck at it and after watching the first 3 games I think Jose could be a touch better which is not saying to much. Jose is head and shoulders better in every other category, Jack is a average back up player.

I want to see Wright defend opposing PG's and have Turk initiate the offense at some point during games.

i also notice Jose's been playing more like Jamario Moon with sudden jumpshots even though he knows that's not his primary role.

Jose took a grand total of 7 shots today, 4 of them were jumpshots. So....4 jumpshots in 30 minutes and that`s your main gripe? O-----K?

Offense has never been a problem with either,
but both of their defensive abilities are suspect.
The lesser of two evils? Does it matter?
The Magic exploited our PG position pretty hard today.

Neither point guard has been impressive on defense.

Hate to say it, but will this team get desperate enough at some point to start playing Banks for defensive quickness? We all know this team can score, but that position is being exploited by other offenses.
