I am almost afraid to write the words “Marcus” and “Banks” 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 team’s starting point guard. Ain’t happening, folks.
And there’s this:
This team is better with Calderon than without him. That’s not even a debating point.
He’s a better shooter than either of the two other point guards, he facilitates the offence better and, get your typing fingers ready:
He’s 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 you’d like he was me out there the way people bust on him.
I don’t know where all this stuff comes from, it’s like some self-fulfilling prophecy or something. One guys says he’s no good and the avalanche starts. Incredible.
We all really need to rein in some of this crazy over-reaction stuff, okay?
