There is no way he is going to start. If he gets more then 10 min I would be shocked.

I say he starts. Lets get Caldy back in and lets get our offence going again. Just let him get his feet wet again. Hey they get DD to start then he usually gets a quick hook so they should do the same with Caldy. Even if he plays well he gets the quick hook. Break him in slowly but he should start. This will give the team some energy too bad he was not ready for the Boston game. Things are starting to look good Caldy coming back then Evans is just around the corner. :dancin

Ya Like DD let Jose start and if he not doing good then put Jack in then Banks; but aslong that Traino dont play the Jose+Jack combo then that'll help alot. DD will be back in form again with Jose Alley Oop pass and feed for the dunk.

The problem with jose: HIS DEFENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

see jack might not be an all round better pg, but his defence is better, and the way he has been producing has been amazing.

See Jack is putting up very similar numbers to jose since he has been starting, but he is not the defensive liability that jose is.

Thats why jack should continue to start, and bring jose off the bench.

Take the racer glasses off please. Jose and Jack both suck at d the only diff my friend is that the 2 ,3,4,and 5 spot have done a better job on team d. Unfortunately Jack and company could not stop the 2nd and 3rd stringers. I am not even blaming Jack on the loss because he did not do anything differant on d, his man still blew past him, however our team d was shit against a weak Boston line up.

Bottom line our strength to our team is offence so lets play what we excel at. So having Jose back in will light a fire on our team. If we can get a good team effort on team d we will be fine. We have not played with a full roster yet so until it happens we can't really see what we look like until all our guys are back.

Start Jack, and Banks should be the first PG off the bench.

If we have banks, weems, evans and Bosh on the court at the same time, then Calderon should play the 2 gaurd because the other 4 guys could cover up his clapping defence. <----- that.

Jarrett Jack has earned the right to be the starter for the time being. Until he regresses we do not change a thing.

He doesn't mean his fitness level, he means that Demar will be getting easy baskets with Jose feeding him the ball. Easy baskets means better confidence. Better confidence means a better Demar. A better Demar usually means having better chances at winning basketball games.

Okay so after this game it is known to all the Jack's defence is the same as Jose. Parker dominated Jack. Jack will get the start on Wed. but he will be worked backinto the starting line-up

It's not whether he deserves to start over Jack, it's the fact that he's injury prone and Triano won't be giving him full starter minutes until he shows he's back

Its one game. Parker is a great scoring point guard. He usually doesn't hit his outside shots, but tonight it was falling. However, how did Jack do against Devin Harris, Chris Paul, and Stuckey when Jose was out. Jack is a better defender than Jose. The defence starts a the point guard position, and the Raptors are 13-0 when they hold there opponents under 100. If you insert Jose back in the starting line-up again especially after an injury, you create another defensive hole, and teams will be scoring over 120 points against us again. Don't fix it if ain't broken. Keep the starting line-up the way it is. Who also noticed better defence by holding the Spurs shooting to 41% with no Hedo and Calderon on the floor.

Can Jose become our SG?
He has the shot, but clearly doesn't have the hops to defend or be aggressive on the offense.

Look at other players coming back from injury. I noticed Josh Howard, Ryan Gomes, previously solid starters, are coming off the bench after injury.
Two reasons - no need to rush him back and our lineup without him has achieed degree of cohesiveness.
