    Default Jose Wants To Be A Laker

    Jose Calderon mentioned in a Spanish interview that he’d like to play for the Lakers when asked what team he’d like to play for:

    “Obviously everybody would like to play for Boston or the Lakers, because apart from being two of the best teams, everything around them is amazing. When you watch that, you’re like, “How cool!” But you’ve got to realize that it’s difficult to get a spot there.”

    Jose Calderon has played all six of his seasons with the Toronto Raptors. Calderon, has career averages of 9.8 points, 7.0 assists, and 2.5 rebounds per game. Calderon in his career shoots 49% from the field and makes 38% of his three pointers.

    Calderon has worn out his time in Toronto, but is not so cheap when you look at his annual salary. ($9.7 million next season and $10.5 million in 2012-13)

    He also has ties with Pau Gasol as they played on the Spanish national team together, and has said in the past he would like to play with Gasol in the NBA.

    Nothing sensational here but still worth noting.

    Yeah, I saw that last week on the Lakers board. I didn't think too much of it and to be honest, most Lakers fans want nothing to do with the guy.

    Hmmm, I want him to be a Laker too. That would be cool.

    That's one of the few teams where Jose would be an upgrade. Price is too high for them to give a sh*t IMO.

    FWIW, I would also like Jose to be a Laker.

    Edit:

    I would not limit my selection to the Lakers and would also like Jose to be a Hawk, Magic, Bobcat, Wizard, HEAT, Cav, Piston, Pacer, Buck, Knick, Celtic, Net, 76er, Bull, King, Wolve, Nugget, Jazz, Warrior, Rocket, Maverick, Clipper, Grizzly, Spur, Blazer, Sun, Thunder, or Hornet.

    Man his pay packet is a heavy one and is of course the deal slammer in most cases. One hopes that Minny considers him for the Rubio nanny role to protect their investment.

    Hopefully there will be a clause in the new CBA which will allow us to drop him no questions asked.

    Jose fits the triangle O very well, actually. Too bad they have zero (gettable) assets that I'd want.

    I'd like to see the raps sign Shannon brown as a FA tho.
