and stop spinnin...point is calderon pouted just as much as TJ did about the starting position....so dont critique one and defend the other,its the same shit....you either criticize both or neither....it dont work like that dude....
You didnt notice his decrease in production from 2008-2009 to last year ?
Shall i pull up the numbers for you or the teams numbers for you ?
And last season, Calderon began the year as a starter. The team didn't play well for the first month and a bit (new players and system, difficult record) and Calderon went down with injury. Jack stepped into the starting position and when Calderon came back from injury, the team was doing well and Jack continued to start. Then, after the All-Star break when the team went 1-9, Calderon was put back into the starting lineup and the team did a little better.
And Calderon's numbers were pretty much the same whether he was starting or not.
As for those numbers you were going to pull, Calderon's per minute production was actually pretty much the same from 2008-2009. It's just his minutes were reduced by about 8 mpg. It doesn't take a genius to figure out a player is going to produce less when he plays less.
As for the faulty per minute crap, I realize that it goes against your argument, but it doesn't make it crap, especially when the amount of minutes is so high. Trying to extrapolate a guys stats who plays 10 mpg doesn't make sense, but guys are pretty consistent with their production beyond 20 mpg. If you can give me a counter argument, I'd be willing to hear it.
And I certainly wouldn't be throwing the biased tag at anyone, if I were you. You certainly wouldn't be immune to that label. And it has nothing to do with who did it, but when he did it. I was a very big Ford supporter until he started sulking on the bench during the season. I don't give a crap what a player does off the court, but if it affects his play or the team, then I do. Ford's sulking affected the team, Calderon's comment didn't. Calderon plays the same way, no matter if he is starting or not and the facts (and stats) support that argument. You haven't shown me ANYTHING that supports your argument.
As for the booing, Raptor fans are not the first people I would look to back me up. They are an incredibly fickle bunch who constantly overrate and underrate players because they don't really know the subtleties of the game.
