I am almost afraid to write the words ďMarcusĒ and ďBanksĒ any more because I cannot handle the immediate reaction:
Marcus looks good, trade Jose.
Seriously, it stuns me.
First off, I will tell you with absolute certainty no one in the organization, in the darkest recesses of their minds, thinks about a deal involving the teamís starting point guard. Ainít happening, folks.
And thereís this:
This team is better with Calderon than without him. Thatís not even a debating point.
Heís a better shooter than either of the two other point guards, he facilitates the offence better and, get your typing fingers ready:
Heís not nearly as a bad a defender as so many of you think.
No, he is not all-defensive team material; anyone knows that. But youíd like he was me out there the way people bust on him.
I donít know where all this stuff comes from, itís like some self-fulfilling prophecy or something. One guys says heís no good and the avalanche starts. Incredible.
We all really need to rein in some of this crazy over-reaction stuff, okay?
