If it's any consolation Calderon seems to have really good Cardio
Calderon is playing in his third season in a row through the summer. Having played three years in TO at 82 games per indicates he has the strenght to play a whole season. The concern about stamina is the same one for every one who is playing Olympic ball this year. Many players are playing for a third straight summer and that's just to much ball for all of them.
NBA players need a break from the contact from this sport. The stresses put on knees, ankles, feet ect. is simply to much for any young player to withstand without a break. I wish Olympics would return to amateurs, let them get their day, maybe their break to get that big pay check. The pro's need the break.
