Default Smith: Calderon Getting to know the new guys

From the Toronto Star this morning:

Quote:
"I just have to get everyone involved," Calderon said after the Raptors worked out Monday at the Air Canada Centre. "I know what CB (Chris Bosh) likes, and some others but there are new guys to learn.

"Everybody sees the game differently and you have to get used to that."
Quote:
Calderon knows full well many eyes will be focused on him as the eight-game exhibition season unfolds. He's the first to admit he was a defensive liability at times last season, with his mobility greatly impaired by the hamstring injury that nagged him for the final three months.

But he said he hasn't felt this healthy and fresh going into a season since he joined the Raptors – this was the first summer he hadn't played for Spain in a decade – and he's got time to work on the new plays the team's putting in. And the new guys.

"It really isn't that difficult, you just have to be concentrating," he said. "You just need to learn each other, where everyone likes to go."

if Jose said this with 100% honesty, then we fans have good things to look forward to.

Less pick and roll huh...I was looking forward to seeing Turkoglu put in more pick and roll scenarios with the bigs.

maybe its a smokescreen

its hard to believe that with Caldy/Turk/Bosh/Bargs that pick and roll won't be used
