Who would you pick to start your team- Leandro or Calderon?

Calderon and it's not really close. Calderon is physically larger; plays better defense; shoots better from the field, from three and from the free-throw line; he is an actual point guard whereas Barbosa is a combo guard. The only stat line which Barbosa is better than Calderon is PPG, but that is because Barbosa takes more shots.

Calderon for me. Barbosa scores more but I think Calderon is a bigger impact. He could pass, shoot, rarely turns the ball over, can penetrate and shoot freethrows when fouled, etc.

Ill take Calderon anyday. Barbosa might be the better offensive player but that's really all he can do, Calderon is a pure PG who can play good defense and I will take over all offense anyday.

^Calderon really isnt that good on defense. But he is an amazing talent and makes everyone on his team better when he's playing. I'll take him over barbosa anydayyyyyyyyy.

Calderon is a true pure PG. Barbosa is more of a short SG to me...

I've watched both of them a lot and it is easily Calderon. Barbosa is an undersized SG and I don't know why anyone would choose to start their team with an undersized SG over a true PG.

Calderon's the better offensive player. I think you mean that Barbosa's a better scorer. Even though Barbosa's the better pure scorer, Calderon is a good playmaker on offense, and he creates offense for others, not just for himself.

I would say Barbosa's defense is a little better than Calderon's.
Calderon has like, no lateral movement, he can't keep up.

but I agree, Calderon is more valuable to a team.

Barbosa is better as a 6th man, but I'd rather Calderon on my team. He's probably one of the top 5 passing points guards in the NBA right now and he's a great shooter.

Calderon is better at everything except finishing.

Yeah it's gotta be Jose. Wow this is a very lopsided poll. You should make another one comparing Calderon to a true PG.

Jose by a landslide. Barbosa can run and score, but Calderon is better overall

Calderon was almost an all-star last year.
