Default We need a new point guard

Before everybody get all crazy .let me explain...

We need to bench or trade Jose...below is as to why...

Jose has bad habits that he has brought with him from last year...he is the only player on the roaster who hasn't improved from last year...rather his stats went down...

he doesnt run on a consistent basis...he slows down the whole team trying to make a play...

he cant make a play and watches jay traino for every possession..

His defend is probably the worst in eastern conference point guard position...

Point guard can change the whole game defensively and offensively ..jose get punked by other pg and than he loses his game and can get assists or shots...

WE NEED A NEW POINT GUARD THAT CAN RUN THIS TEAM..

asnwer...ralfer austin...his swagger is what we need...BC have to get a starter for PG...

I like Jose -for the most part- but we need a PG who can slash and finish at or above the rim and play off the ball to allow Hedo to handle more often. The addition of Hedo would fill the void that Jose leaves behind IMO. However, Jose is has no value on the trade market, so we might as well be patient and wait for him to hopefully make some improvements. Rafer Alston is not the answer btw..

You're high if you think he has no trade value. I watch NBATV all the time and he's always praised and many coaches have remarked how good he is. You can get something pretty good for him easy, plus his salary is decent.

That's called psy-ops, man..People don't want to promote themselves as dicks on TV, and coaches don't want to motivate Jose by deriding his game for all to see. They know if they do, he may play some D. When do you see a coaches overtly rag on other team's player's skill levels?

I'd pick Jose for every criteria u mentioned rather than rafer.... But I agree on that Jose hasn't got the influence that the team needs... I think the team needs an experienced PG who can control the tempo, make open shots and do not need the ball in his hands all the time...

I'd say Mike Bibby

Are you sure ur not talking about when rick kamla praises him because his assist to turnover ratio. IMO, Calderon has very little trade value. He is 28 years old with 4 years left on a contract that is worth a lot of money. Not to mention he has been nagged by an injury for a long time.

The reason i said rafer....because he is the only good point guard that the team can afford and is willing to trade....harris..bibby...are the stars on there team and why would they get traded....

we can also try giving the job to jarret jack...and jose goes on "injured during the practice" leave...i belive jack will shine since he has better defense than jose and better swagger or aggression than jose...also we should bench demar and put marco as starter..

this team needs some shake up....Jack...marco...bargani...hedo and Bosh as starters....i think we will be a better team that way...

Hey Big Afghanraptor ,

Is Hedo playing up to expectations this year ?

Is Hedo turning over the ball more this year ?

Is Hedo being missed by the Magic this year ?

Did Howard make what Hedo is today ?

Lets here it big guy.

Had to jump back in....define what you mean by swagger ????

This team has major problems....if we decide to tackle the little one than we wont be able to fix the big problem...in your case..you are tackling a problem that can be solved easily by giving hedo some rest...you can also argue that barg is not playing well on the road...you can also argue that Bosh is not stepping up to take the leadership role...scoring points doesnt make you a leader...you can also argue that jay should be fired for doing such a horrible job with such a talented group...but you would be wrong...because the general who is jose is the reason for all that problems...if jose can stop the opposing PG than that means he is slowing there game down...if the opposing PG can do what he does easily than it will be hard to slow everybody down...if a dame can stop the water from flowing down than the whole town is safe.....pg has to make plays and make his team members better...\

Stephen jackson said it best "i was the reason that Andris got a 60 million dollar deal"...

Basketball all starts with PG position and he makes plays...JOSE is still rusty or was never good enough...

Hedo is not the problem...

Swagger means aggression...willing to fight for your possession...showing courage and running till your last breath....
