    If the Raps can win the next few too, fans can crow for Jose the All-Star. :-D

    Then trade him? Hmmmn.

    Remind me again why Jose isn't a starting point guard?
    He's too injury prone, which is funny because Lowry is as well.

    Nice to see the rookies getting rookie minutes for a win. Casey really rides DeRozan and Calderon. They do make a great offensive backcourt this season. There is something to be said for continuity. i.e. "building."

    Jose's trade value just sky-rocketed.
    Maybe the focus shouldn't be on Jose's trade value but rather how he helps this team, and the way I see it, he has done and is doing way more for this team than Lowry. Rather than trade the player who best fits the Casey's team-first philosophy and gives us the best chance to win, maybe we should look at trading the guy who's probably gonna bolt in a couple of years. I'm not saying that Lowry isn't the better talent, just that he doesn't fit this team.

    guys you always trade when the irons hot.

    Jose with 2 triple doubles, will net some GREAT rewards. I feel we can do better than Gasol with Bargs + Jose now.

    Trading Jose would be the right move from a "tank now, reap rewards later" perspective. But damn it all, I want him to be a career Raptor.

    I love Jose. He is the ultimate professional and the kind of guy every team wants. But, he's way too injury prone to be given the starting gig. I can guarantee you an injury is around the corner.

    Jose said he is not coming back, might as well get as much for him as we can, nice to see him making himself more attractive.

    Calderon played great but, what's the benefit from keeping him? We're not making the playoffs. Looks like we're at least going to be a .500 team to get in. I just don't see that happening. Strike while the iron is hot.

    Here's a crazy idea. Why not just keep Jose?

    He said it to some spanish paper. He is going to be looking to sign with a contending team. The trade speculation, demotion probably have taken their toll.

    He's one of the few true playmakers in the league, his value to this team is huge. How many of Ed's baskets were assisted and completely created by Jose these past three games?
