    I like Jose, so I'm taking a stand for him.
    He plays hard, he's a solid point guard when the ball is going through him.
    I know he's horrible defensive player, but in the present NBA where no hand-checking is allowed, it is virtually impossible to stay in front of all these athletic, speedy player.
    Which is why I think some of the blame should go on the coach, who should have preached more team-defense.

    Agreed with most of this accept all the Jose hate. He is still valuable to the right team don't just get rid of him because you think he is the sole problem with this franchise and as for Brooks there is no way youre getting him. I do belive we should do everything possible to retain Bosh without doing something stupid, I still belive with the right cast around him he can help this team reach another level.

    Jose is not the single problem. I actually like Jose... he distribute the ball and could actually help our young players like DeMar, Amir and Weems grow.

    People think Jose can't play defense..or he does not have the "heart"..... I think Jose has a heart and the determination but this is a team game... and he is a team player... the team in general need to be better in defense .. you can't single out a player.... a very few players in the NBA can stop other players one on one!!!

    Now... if Jose or Jack is traded... we will have the same problem in the pg position again...like last year.. I rather trade Hedo .. than Jose, Jose is not a quitter, he loves Toronto and the organization

    Because trading away Calderon for a draft pick unknown sends the right kind of win-now message to Bosh.

    Everyone needs to realize that every player should be held accountable for their defensive match-ups. You cant make excuses like "not every player can keep their man in front of them." WOW you guys sound so weak. Really?? We've had Jose since he was a rookie, dude is an OBVIOUS THORN IN THE FOOT. HE CAUSES RIDICULOUS MISMATCHES! Other point guards smell blood when they see Jose. Also, about team defence i somewhat agree, to an extent. Jay Triano had no clue what he was doing last year. Nonetheless, imo the defense's weakness is Jose. Sometimes you just got to say "hey this is not working out". C YA LATER JOSE

    Dear lord.

    10. Agreed.

    9 (and 5). Sure, if we're planning on having a re-building year with no expectations.

    8. Nope. Bosh is as good as gone, and trading Bargnani would be like shooting yourself in the face with pepperspray.

    7. Good luck with that.

    6. That would be a awesome.

    5. See 9.

    4. It's a must, I agree.

    3. The Rockets are totally committed to Scola. We wouldn't get him. Might end up with an old Battier and Brooks, though.

    2. Yes.

    1. YES! No more Hedon't, please!
    Don't hate me because I'm an optimist.

    Default how i would fix

    Trade Hedo to Orlando for Gortat and Matt Barnes in a sign and trade.
    Maybe they want Rasho for a super cheap backup included in the deal
    Orlando does this because Gortat wants more minutes they dont need to pay Dwights backup 6.5 mil and this wouldgive them a potent offensive attack with Boston gettting older they become the favorite pending where all the FA move

    Jammer Arroyo
    Vince JJ Redick
    Hedo Pietrus
    Rahsard Bass
    Howard Maybe Rasho

    Next trade-

    http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=2chevk4

    OK OK i know this sounds crazy but allow me to explain

    New Orleans does this in a heartbeat they get to shed bad contracts + backup PG for Monta Ellis, with him and Paul dynamite backcourt. James johnson contract is not guranteed so they can waive him and save cash as well

    Toronto does this to get a great young PG and shed Jose with having to take Posey bad contract back

    Miami does this because they dont want Beasley and now can focus on front court help to go along with Jose/ Wade and tons of cap space.

    Goldenstate losses Ellis who they still have some bitterness toward and are worried about him and Steph Curry playing together long term and land Beasley a young PF who fits there system great maybe they need the Raps 13th pick to make this work.

    The Raps then would have

    Collison/Jack/Banks
    Derozan/Weems/Belli
    Barnes/Posey/
    Bosh/Evans
    Andrea/Gortat

    And.......still might have our 13th pick and two expiring contracts in Banks and Evans that could be moved before or during the season....And would still have the MLE exception to use on Amir or someone else...

    Long shot ofcourse but the possibilities are out there!!!!
