Default TJ vs Calderon the 2nd coming!!

So, we dont have any starting PG issue to really speak of, even ppl that arent that enthralled with Jose of late have to admit he will definately be the starter when he comes back, no doubt about it. So, bring on the backup PG controversy!! Who gets the job, who deserves it... should we use a double backup PG system, thoughts....

You like this dead horse, don't you? For a moment I thought you pulled an old thread just for fun. It looks like TJ vs Jose madness continues even after TJ left Raptors. That's just sad.

I think that Jay should be more cautious with how many minutes Calederon plays, even when fully healthy he shouldn't play more than 30 minutes. Personally i would like to see Roko gettin the majority of these minutes when Jose is on the bench but i also think that Will has shown enough improvement and willingness to change his style of play to be given some minutes. It maybe best if Will gets some minutes at SG as he is a better player without the ball in his hands.

Its not sad at all, he brings up a VERY valid point! WHO is our backup behind Calderon. Soloman or Ukic?

My vote for this debate is to play Ukic over Soloman. He is young and has a great upside and I think with more minutes he can develop into a solid backup quicker. Who knows, maybe this time next year we do get back into the starting PG debate, but with Calderon and Ukic

I also think Roko is a much smarter player than Will too. A little more unselfish as well.

i just dont trust solomon whatsoever.
he's too inclined to take ill advised shots and refuse to pass when he should.
i hate seeing him play actually.

That VERY valid point can be brought without yet another TJ vs Jose thread.
To answer to your question, I will go with Roko 10 times out of 10. Roko is the future, therefore play him so he can learn the NBA PG business as quick as possible. Roko can hit a three, can drive aggressively. he defend better and he have more ways to score the ball which Jose wasn't able to perform in his first year. Not saying Roko should start or became a starter any sooner, but there is a chance he can be better than Jose.

I don't think Ugo was alluding to another Ford vs. Jose comparison thread per se, but more as to who we think should be the back-up once Jose's healthy and returns to the line up.

If this is the case, why this title? To attract visitors on your thread?



P.S. Ugo must be Feschuk - he knows how to attract people reading his articles

Ukic. Better now and in the future.

He had one massive stinker of a quarter, and about 5 great ones in the past few games. He's much more effective due to his quickness on O, and length on D.

He even hit a 3 in a game, showing that he could develop long range consistency in the future if he works on his strength and J.

very likely it won't happen, as both him and Tj are hurt at the moment, and have been for quite some time, even though they both played a few minutes before being shut down again.

Unfortunately, unless we get really lucky, Jose will not be himself for the rest of the year.

I'm pretty certain that the majority of us will say Ukic would be the ideal back up PG upon Calderon's return but I really don't see it happening.

For some reason, Triano just favours Will over Roko. I don't really get why
