Ok, now that that is past us, any chance the raps make a move? I'd love to see TJ shipped out.

Actually now that I think of it, there could be a chance that TJ may get shipped. I was really worried after this season that we would definately lose Jose as he would be a fool to stay. He could easily get the starting PG spot on a lot of teams.

Now with TJ's recurring injury I don't think the Raps would make a move with Jose just yet. It's pretty much the same injury that took out TJ at the playoffs last year. If we do lose Jose what would happen if TJ goes out again. Then it would be fatso Martin getting the start, I don't think so.

TJ isn't going anywhere this season b/c of the base year compensation rule on his new contract

LOL @ trading TJ. That won't happen, Calderon goes before he does.
I don't like it either, but TJ is younger and the better basketball player.

PS. Mooooooooooooooooooooon

Sam finally got it straight - something that all Raptor fans agree with. Darrick Martin SHOULDN'T be our #2 PG at this time. Martin shouldn't even see the floor.

Yeah so happy to see Juan Dixon check in.

I hope Calderon is telling the truth on this, another reason why he is the f'n man.

http://www.nba.com/raptors/news/recap_112507.html

------
Calderon was queried again about his thoughts on being a backup.

``Sometimes you have to be with another great point guard like T.J. if you want to win a ring,'' Calderon said. ``You can go with one team, but if you have no option to win, why do you want to be there? I would rather be here with T.J. and share the minutes, and maybe we'll have a championship team.''

That's baloney. It's just PR speak, you gotta know it's killing him inside. I read that TJ is making 8 mil this year while Jose is make 2. Granted he will get a raise next season but if another team offers him an offer that blows his titties away, he'll be gone. I don't see the Raps being a championship team anytime soon anyways, lets get serious. Jose would be better off as being the man on a different team with a big contract. He is wasting away being a backup. Pro athletes careers are shoRt and you gotta strike when you have a chance. I bet his agent is pulling his hair out.

My fantasy is to ship TJ outta town. I will never let up my undying hate for TJ.

Jose>>>>>TJ
OH YEAH BABEH!!!!!!!

I don't think its baloney, I think Jose is just that good a guy. He might feel that way now and still end up taking big money elsewhere cause its the right thing to do financially, but it doesn't mean its baloney now.

TJ and Jose never share the court together, nor should they. They'd be the biggest defensive liability backcourt in the NBA.

Imagine Calderon trying to guard one of the top flight slashers in the league. I still remember when Mitchell put him on Kobe and he scored 81 LOL.
