Just so you don't make a "ignorance to European Basketball" comment: I will admit that Spain has the best frontcourt in the world outside of the USA.

what about italy

You are admitting that you are ignorant, because you don't watch European Basketball, you just look at the stats.

I don't think it is complete ignorance.

Jose has hardly been playing at all. I'm sure a lot of that has to do with the fact they were warmup games. But part of it is that Jose is not the player he used to be.

Well by looking at the stats, I can tell you that you are the ignorant one and Jose Calderon sucks at basketball

Yeah aren't stats apart of basketball as well? I'd rather have someone post up good numbers rather than no numbers. If "European Basketball" needs Jose surely he would post up some good numbers, but he isn't. They stats aren't there so hes probably not running pick and roll or anything special for this Spain team, actually never mind because getting the ball to one of the Gasol brothers which is extremely hard to do. Considering hes not the most top notch defender and the stats aren't there I don't see him doing much for this team.

Calderon will always do what the team need, no matter the stats.
I think that Calderon is a very important players because.. well, I don't like Rubio running the team. That is the the only way I can see Spain not winning the championship.

I think it has to do more with loyalty to veteran players. They are not that strong in the front court and he had some very solid games when he was getting the minutes in the tourney warm-up.

I agree about Rubio running the team. His game seems to have regressed terribly.

In other major action, Spain moved to 3-0 with a 86-69 win over Great Britain despite Raptors point guard Jose Calderon's continued struggles, notching two points and three assists.

Someone needs to tell this reporter that Jose isn't struggling, he is playing team basketball.

He struggled against Poland. Portugal and Great Britain were easy games and he played just well enough IMO.
Anyway, he would be a very important player that is struggling. Not a useless player.
