    Default Marc Gasol suprised at how Raptors fans view Jose Calderon

    The question is how surprised Gasol is that Calderon, one of the most efficient point guards in the league — his 4.74 assists per turnover laps the rest of the league this season — is continually being run out of town by fans who want him traded or in the case of last season, actually traded and then brought back when the deal fell through.

    “It does surprise me,” Gasol said. “All he cares about his making his teammates better and winning. In the league those guys are hard to find. Guys that just play the right way and get everyone involved and move the ball. They don’t care about anything else but winning.”

    That in a nutshell is Calderon. He is so intent on getting a shot for a teammate that he often passes up good shots for himself which also brings on criticism. That kind of unselfishness would seem ideal in a point guard, but apparently he’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

    I don't understand it either.

    To be honest, I'd be happy if he never left.

    Jose is the second best player on this team. I don't get wanting to move him at all.

    Keep Jose. Keep Jose. Keep Jose. Let him retire a Raptor. One of the best all-time IMO. Great story for him too.

    Just another day of the average Raptors fan.

    I'll admit that there were times I wanted Jose traded, but only because I recognized his skill and what he could bring back. I have the utmost respect for him (his skill and more importantly, his attitude).

    Jose is easily top 10 PG in the league if not top 5...the MOST loyal player in the NBA, let him retire a raptor!
