What about all the losses that piled up when Calderon was out with injury? What happened to winning as a team and losing as a team?
I agree that Lowry is an upgrade at starting PG, but it's not fair to blame Calderon for the team's win/loss record last year or any year previous. We can agree to disagree on Calderon as a player, but please don't heap the blame for a team's failings on any one player.
i disagree. one player can definitely spoil the team's success. he s been given ample oppurtunity to show himself a winner and in my opinion has failed miserable. there s more to basketball than being a nice guy, and if he s so good, why have they lost so much. a good player in his position would have done more.
Since Bosh left town, Jose has been Toronto's best player.
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
I was just saying that I disagree with your comment. Is that not allowed? Why are you still name calling???
Is someone going to say something to this guy?
Yeah, noone on this team is terrible. They're all great.
This thread has lots of troll feeding and little JLIII chat, remember fellow internet users, don't feed the trolls.
I know you haven't spent a lot of time on the boards but that's kind of how we roll around here, and we manage to have civilized discussions with people having opinions across a wide spectrum. There are people here who wouldn't necessarily disagree with some of the points you've made (when you've actually bothered to make one), just try to keep it on topic.
I'm fine signing JLIII and I'm also fine if it means we can move Calderon, as long as we get something decent in return.

Who knows how they truly feel JL3 can contribute to this team whether it is a 2nd string or 3rd, but I'd push hard for the 3rd party in the Lakers Magic possible trade and try to nab Bynum. I'd have to think a trade for Calderon, Ed Davis, and picks would be more attractive than Varejo and let's be honest a pick that won't be in the lotto if the Cavs acquired Bynum
What's the worst that could happen for trying? Bynum gets injured? That's a huge salary off the books.
C- Bynum/Big Val/Gray
PF- Bargnani/AJ/ Acy
SF- Landry/ Kleiza/Anderson
PG- Lowry/JL3/ Uzoh
That's a strong team that easily puts us in the thick of things...I know I know, keep dreaming, but a man can dream damn it
I would rather Bayless as a backup (loves Toronto, flashes of improvement, spark off the bench) than JL3. All the problems with John Lucas are problems with Bayless, but Bayless is simply better at the things he is good at. That is why I do not buy BC making this guy our back up pg. Why would he release 1 capable backup PG in Bayless, then trade another PG with starter ability in Jose, to downgrade to this guy?
I think he is a 3rd stringer or nothing.
Really curious to see how his contract looks.
