    Default Calderon Dilema could torpedo season

    Trying to find Calderon minutes in order to keep his numbers up for trade value is a risky GAMBIT.

    He looked terrible last night as he was at the helm of a very flaccid predictable offense that frittered away a 10 point lead.

    he is taking minutes from Tross' Development and a much speedier and more potent JL3.

    DROSS is better all around at the 2 than Calderon
    JL3 is better at the 1 than Calderon ------- so WTF???


    Calderon had a decent preseason but he was right back on form last night getting owned by 2nd stringer
    CJ Watson who was 6-9 - 15pts (+5)
    Calderon 1-5 2pts 21 mins (-7)

    Two reasons why I am sick of watching Calderon
    1) he can't go get his own shot
    2) he can't defend the point of attack

    I think BC is mandating that DC give Calderon run. At some point in the season BC will have to come to his senses and realize that Caldone could be the final nail in his coffin.

    If this team does not improve and develop BOTH rookies his ass is gone - and that can't happen until they sit Calderon down next to LK at the end of the bench.

    charlez, seems like you woke up on the "everything is broken" side of the bed instead of the "lost two close games, we should have won, against projected top eastern teams." side

    JL3 is NOT better at the 1 than Calderon. Lucas did nothing last night but try and get his own and fail by dribbling to one side and hoisting up off balanced contested shots. Calderon did however find a few timely dimes in the 4th to make it close even if he wasn't scoring, and you can't deny his contributions in the first game.

    If we trade Calderon now and leave JL3 to be our primary back-up and think we'll be worse for wear. Calderon has a calming presence and when TRoss does get some burn with Jose he'll be glad it's him and not Mighty Mouse the second running around trying to put up 10 points in his 4 mins of play no matter what the situation in front of him. Calderon is best dealt at Trade Deadline if we are in fact on the bubble of post season say maybe 10th seed and 6 games out. A chance but unlikely. If we are 6-10 but only a few game out I say keep him. Playoffs are the only thing that matter right now, another season of losing will completely take the wind out of the sails for this franchise. The hype is now so it has to be now and if Jose is contributing to that through leadership or chemistry ALONE I would rather see him here regardless of contract situation.

    Bottom line..this team does not become better by simply giving Jose's minutes to Ross and JL3. Ross does need minutes and should be behind DD, Jose behind Lowry. None of this Two point guard stuff in the BEGINNING of games. 4th qtr sometimes.

    This is the whole point of your post. You imagine this to be the case and then talk about it as if it is true. Can you see Casey playing Calderon a specific number of minutes each night while it costs the Raps a win, just because BC told him so? Don't both Casey and BC establish themselves more firmly with MLSE if the Raptors win? Don't waste time erecting a straw man just so you have something to knock down.
