I am totally pulling for Jose Calderon. I know that I am risking a lot on a young PG but damn, the dude averaged over 8 assists per game with around 30 minutes per game.
Look at the 3 point average, He would make a double team on Melo tough because you can kick it back to Jose for a quick triple.
I worry about his D, but he is over 6'3" and allows us to start a better defender and not lose size. I think that LK would be a great tandem in the back court with Jose.
I think if you get Hinrich or Jose you need to move AI, it is tough for a point guard to do his thing if he doesn't have the ball in his hands. I live AI and that warrior spirit, but it would be tough to start Hinrich or Calderon with a sub 6' SG.
You don't like the D now, just wait if AI is allowed to start with one of these guys.
i cant hate on your choice of calderon as the perfect fit at pg for the nugs- i really thought hard about choosing him as my ideal pg also
but i actually disagree that calderon would be easier to aquire than hinrich- im sure im underestimating hinrichs current value, but i believe that calderon's stock is through the roof right now and that the raptors just flat out wont let him go for anything other than a great package of players- i believe the blazers would again be willing to put a great package on the table that we could only best by including ATLEAST klieza or jr with camby-
hinrich on the other hand would seem to me to be at the lowest value he as ever been, even being chicagos most valued player on the trade market i believe the bulls might have to move hinrich if they were to want to overhaul their roster-
i love where your head is at on the pg spot with calderon i just have to still believe he would be much harder to aquire than hinrich
calderon would maybe be better than hinrich in the fast break game- i just still believe that hinrich would have the edge on defense and possibly with intangibles- i feel either would be perect and would help the TEAMWORK aspect, but am keeping hinrich on the top of my wishlist-
thank you so much for your post and i hope one of our plans come through- i think you "get it"
ps- if all else fails we need russel westbrook and we have a future that looks bright still
