Forgive me for being a desperately hopeful fool, but I’m kind of starting to have faith in Joe-D again. I know the wins haven't come yet, but this is a completely different team with Jose Calderon. At the start of the season, I was hoping we’d tank and get a high pick. But this team I’m watching right now – I think this team’s going to make the playoffs and give a high seed a serious run. And with all the cap space we’re going to have this summer, if it’s spent well, we could go to the ECF next season. I’m sort of reminded of that first competitive team we had post-Grant Hill, with Ben, Uncle Cliffy, Curry, Stack and Chucky. First of all, Calderon is incredible. He reminds me so much of Tony Parker. It’s rare to see a guy who’s capable of running an offense so well. His IQ’s off the charts. He’s so good with the ball in his hands. He’s such a great passer. He takes such great care of the ball. And he does it all at full-speed on the run. AND, he can shoot lights out from outside!! Brandon Knight looks soo much more comfortable at the two-guard. It’s like his chains have been unleashed. He’s so skilled, and without the responsibilities that come along with being a point guard, he’s showing it. He’s an incredible athlete. He’s a good ball-handler. He’s a good passer. And now, when he doesn’t know what to do, he can just camp out at the three point line and be and demand a defender. Singler’s not the greatest athlete in the world, but he can run, and he’s showing that he has great fast-break skills. Drummond, we all know, is probably the most athletic true center in the league. Monroe’s a hell of a player too, and I think we’re going to be able to find a way to fit him in. When I look at our team out there now, I see five guys who are giving tremendous effort on defense; and I see an offense that is being operated incredibly well. I’m not going to get into predictions – I never in a million years would’ve guessed that Calderon’d be the answer – but I’m unbelievably excited by the possibilities of what we could do with all our cap space this off-season!! I will say…1) I think we should resign Calderon; 2) I think we should amnesty Charlie-V. His offensive game might fit into our new offense (really well, actually), but I just can’t stand to see him on defense, and I’d rather see that cap space used elsewhere; 3) I think we should trade Stuckey for whatever we can get. His ability to take it to the rack on the fast break would be a great asset in this offense, but he’s just not smart on that end. I don’t like his defensive attitude or effort. I don’t like his demeanor in general. I’d rather see us do something else with his cap space. 4) I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing Max and Will brought back at the right price (which is quite low for me). But it’d of course be as an afterthought after exploring all other options with our cap space. 5) Don’t think I really even need to mention that Maggette’s gone.
