after weighing pro's and con's I find them to be equal.
why cant he give us the same performances with out with another guy competing for his starting role ? if he did that we woudnt need to go and give up picks for a guy like lowry.
losing that pick and watching lowry play 17 mins last game + calderon expiring and could very well sign somewhere else = super duper frustration for me as a fan.
what does working mean exactly ? beating teams under 500 ?? finishing 10th in the east ? to me thats not called working. that is a simple case of calderon having more experience in this system and more experience with his team mates and familiarity. plus calderon being the inferior defender is put in a the line up with better defenders around him.
if lowry was just as familiar with the system and team mates whos to say he couldnt work out for us just the same if not better ? what if lowry got to start with the better defenders in amir and ed ? is it possible that it could have better results then having him in the starting line up with bargs and jonas ?

I really wish we got a guy like Lillard. Dude is gonna be a stud for a very long time.
ink i am just curious what type of pg would you like and who would it be?
Also why cant jose consistently perfrom this way so that we dont try to find a replacement in the offseason and waste a pick on lowry?? bayless would have been a cheaper option to back up calderon and we could have kept our pick...
if jose is the answer why keep trying to replace him and wasting assets in doing so ? this is what bothers me most.

The Raps have wasted a lot of money and assets trying to upgrade a position that is full of talent. Use them both to get better players at other positions or draft picks. Every offseason there is a decent pg that can be picked up for a cheap contract.
a) were not upgrading and were wasting assets + money
b) when we do attain a player who could be an upgrade were not giving him a fair chance over the guy who has been here several years and gave us a reason to try and replace him in the first place.
theres only one thing i don't like about him and thats his playing style makes him a concern for injury. the dude was a beast at the start of the season he is much better than calderon imo.. not even a close call for me.
