    Jeez, the lack of success the Raptors have had with Calderon is very difficult for me.

    There are three constants in Toronto the last 7 years: Bargnani, Colangelo, and Calderon. They should all go so the franchise can move forward. Jose is not the only problem but he was predominantly the starting point guard so he does have his fair share of the responsibility.
    Thing is, PG play hasn't been a major issue in Toronto's lack of success the past 6 years. The biggest issue has been, and continues to be, the Raptors wings are terrible and unproductive. Derozan has been slightly better this year but the blackhole at the SF spot has dragged down Derozan's production.

    I'm not exactly sure why Calderon has taken the brunt of so many fans' anger. Most players in his shoes (i.e. where every year they try and trade or replace you) would have demanded a trade ages ago or played like crap until they got traded. He's always been a consummate pro, he's always worked hard and never complained and he's been productive offensively for years. Yeah, he's not Chris Paul or Rajon Rondo but Calderon has been the least of this team's problems.

    I've always felt like if Colangelo had put as much effort into finding a SG and SF as he has trying to replace Calderon, this team would have been far better off.

    I love major play makers like Brevin Knight....yeah cause he got the job done. Bwhahahahaha who's next on your list...Mookie Blaylock...ahahahah. Andre Miller....ahahaha, ok I digress and apologize for the making fun of (all in good spirit I promise)

    Look Calderon can pass, we as a franchise suck, it's kind of a wash...non?

    I think Lowry is a better defender, has a better PER, and has only been with the Raptors for 5 months.

    I'd love to see Calderon get a ring with a contender, I don't want to overpay him, I think he was ok for the Raptors and I'm not willing to go further than that.

    And as far as besting Ford, and Jack...well look where they ended up right? Not exactly champ calibre material.

    Let me clear things up. Lowry is a solid solid PG, and definately worth putting in as our starter. If you want to be stat geeks, check out Hollingers PER, explains a lot.


    Thanks
    You mean the PER stat where Calderon's career PER is higher than Lowry's?

    Can someone please explain what the following quote means? I got this from an article on NBA.com today.

    "If Calderon is dealt, my guess is it won't be for Gasol, or for any player, but to a team that can send Toronto a pick back and create a huge $15.6 million trade exception for the Raptors"

    Is the $15.6 million trade exception bigger than what we would have if we just played Calderon for the rest of the season and let his contract come off the books?

    Wasn't necessarily being serious. But honestly, Jose has been FAR better at the point than Lowry this season. Lowry hasn't run the team well at all.
    Maybe because Lowry's only managed to play in
