This guy has been horrible all season ( and even last season too), he has a few good games and now we "can't trade Jose, it would be a mistake"....

BAND WAGON fans suck!
Have you seen what Bayless & Barbosa do when they play PG?

Unless we're getting back a quality starting PG we need to keep Jose.

No i have been watching the Calderon that was given that contract a few seasons back return finnally...(although i still think he is overpaid)

He's finally had a healthy season minus the Shooting SLUMP he wen't through mid season...

So lets see, no good (not even great) player has gone through a slump in a season?

Dude, do you watch the games?

They have flashed the stats vs what he has done in the last few games against Elite PG's in Nash, Paul, Kidd and Rose(win)

As good as Jose's playing I say we trade him. I love Jose but by the time we become a contender he'll be old, considering how he's playing I'm sure we can get some quality youngin back for hi. If we don't trade him for a young player then, hell no.

He's no where NEAR as bad as people say, and he's not as good either.

He was looking like he was going to be an allstar a few years back, but it's pretty clear he has physical limitations that aren't going to get better. I've been where he is, it's crappy, but thats life (I just mean seeing your body break down).

If you could bring a super star PG in, hell yes you keep the guy, he's a good player. But who you bringing in?

No FA will come here.
And the 8% chance the Raptors have to draft this Kyrie kid, who says he isn't gonne suck?

It's pretty hard to make it work here man.

Last year I was bitching about him suxing; but this year he kinda change my opinion on him. I think it's better we keep Jose and get rid of Barf.

Taken from Chrisholm's piece off tsn.ca

Quote:
Of course, just about everything Calderon has done since being elevated into the starting lineup this season has been an improvement for him. Since being promoted after Jarrett Jack was traded to New Orleans, Calderon has averaged 10.6 ppg and 10.4 apg, with those assist numbers reaching as high as 11.4 apg in the month of February. The stability he has brought to the point guard position on a tremendously young team has been invaluable. He's leading the league in assist-to-turnover ratio (4.16-to-1), he's getting a group of teammates that can't create their own shots or open looks, and he has helped his team get to the top of the NBA in fastbreak points per game (19.2). His willingness to advance the ball with a pass instead of a dribble has been a substantial area of growth for Calderon, as has his willingness to let other people bring the ball up the court when appropriate, since both were huge areas of weakness for Calderon when Jay Triano took over the team more than two years ago. It can be said that Calderon is probably playing his most well-rounded basketball right now at the age of 29.

This is particularly important because as of today it looks like the Raptors are going to need him to man the point guard spot beyond just this season.
