So we keep an older guy @ Point? and give up young talent and hard working types in DeRozan and Lowry? great choice.
Calderon outshines Lowry because he has been here for the last 6 years or is it 7 now? the chemistry he has is at an all time high. Lowry is te better player and should be our go to pg he just doesn't know the personnel much yet.
I admire Calderon's abilities on the floor and his demeanor off of it but lets be serious here moving forward we need young and a core Calderon isn't the answer may not even be Lowry but we cant be getting older instead of having a young system that grows together.

Losing for a year as a result of foolish team building, doing what amounted to nothing and then proceeding to 'accelerate' that is only 'rebuilding' in Colangelo's world.
This team was never in a rebuild unless one drank the Colangelo Koolaid

If we had top 5 player who is happy to be here and also the face of the franchise, then it might be a different situation. But that won't happen with anyone on the current roster.

Enough with the personal insult replies. Just because people disagree with your initial post, it doesn't give you the right to attack them, as opposed to attacking their arguments. Please don't force my hand with regards to a ban... keep it respectful.

I love Jose, but I don't agree with the premise of this thread that he should be kept over Lowry. Jose is just being Jose. He's always played better as a starter. When everybody was blaming Lowry for the slow start, little blame was placed on Jose. He didn't do very well in the games he came off the bench and certainly didn't win any games for us in that capacity. As a starter, the only team that we've beaten that currently have an above .500 record is Indiana. So we haven't beaten anybody that we didn't have a legitimate chance of beating.
Now Lowry has done well coming off the bench, but he'll never truly accept that role. He'll never stay past his current contract if
