USA vs Spain - Raptors' Calderon almost invisible, Bosh leads US in Rebounds

Jose goes 1-9 from the floor with 4 rebounds and zero assists. Bosh with 8 boards to lead Team USA. Led them in blocks too I believe.

I hope these are the last Olympics that Calderon plays. Ricky Rubio already looks to be a better playmaker and defensive player, his shot needs work though. He'll be fully ready in 4 years. Same goes for Bosh but that's unlikely. He'll probably be there next time around.

Ugh, such meaningless games for a Raptors fan like me.

It's all we have at the moment, I'll take it.

I have to think Bosh has already earned a spot on Team USA for the next time around. Calderon on the other hand will be what, 31 or 32 the next Olympics? I'm sure he'll be there but I'll be surprised if Rubio isn't the Spanish Chris Paul by that point.

PS, anyone see Bosh & Dwight's secret handshake pre-game? Double-hand-slap-into-mock-Superman-flying.

Bosh led the team in rebounds and blocks.

Jose Calderon looks clueless on the Spain team the games that i watched with Spain Jose seems to turn the ball over a lot and not set up teamates. I think its because hes not comfortable with his teammates.

This is not good for his confidence. Last year he came in with extremely high confidence because of his international play last summer. I really hope he can turn it around by the end of this tournament.

Jose is 27. He is not some young rookie whose confidence should be so easily shattered. He better be ready to play well during the season regardless of how he plays in the Olympics. You can't use this as an excuse.

Pretty sure he's been playing with those guys for longer than he's been playing with the Raps. Comfort shouldn't be an issue.

well something is bothering him because he looks like he is lost

I think Bosh looks great and a lot stronger if he can play like he did in the olympics and Jose Calderon doesn't play like what he is now i think we are top 4 in the east

Bosh does look a lot stronger, in terms of toughness and aggressiveness, which was one thing that he needed to work on before the olympics imo.
