Ford so we dont screw our salery worse than it is now.
TJ Ford, because of the contract and better D. Calderon can't defend a fly, heck he couldn't even defend Diop if he was a PG even when Diop has no offense whatsoever.
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
No way in Hell we are better with TJ than Calderon. Jose is way ebtter than TJ c'mon. Forget his contract Im so sick of that. We aint getting CP3 or any other All Star PG right now and we gotta pay anyway. The only guys that play for cheap are Rookies and reserves. Were not paying these guys anyway. All i care about is how we play because I dont watch them get paid, I watch them shoot, pass and dribble. Let MJ decide whether or not he wants to pay. I trust him.
I chose Ford, worse case he could be traded again as an expiring.

You can't forget about his contract, that is what got us in trouble in the past, not worrying about the $$ in the contract or the length:
See Carroll, which became Diop
See Morrison which just wasted away, add May to that as well
See Okafor, which became Chandler
As MJ said right after he became owner, there would be moves that didn't appear to be basketball related, rather they would be financial moves..that's the reality of pro-sports in small-markets. The best way out of that is making prudent financial decisions when resigning players (not overpaying for Felton, not paying May), in trades (letting Chandler and Ajinca go for a dust chip) and in the draft (which we've been poor at-at best).
I dont expect us to make too many bad SIGNINGS financially speaking with MJ in control. Okafor's deal really wasnt too bad considering he averaged a double double for his career and was sort of the face of our team. Carroll's deal was bad but thats the going rate for a great shooting 6th man now a days. Kapono and others have similar deals. The reason we picked up Adam's qual. offer was so we could trade him easier. He was a big expiring for the 2010 FA class.
I just want us to put the best players possible out on the floor...
Neither one is worth a bag of peanuts. Caleron isn't going to make us any better than TJ or DJ would so it makes absolutely no sense to have him on the roster.
Did I mention that he'd be due $30mil over the next 3 years? Did I also mention that LB would call in a hit on him once he (Caleron) gets lit up for 48 points by any guard with ball handling abilities?
Bad hamstring, bad ankle - he plays hurt. Hard to play defense when the best defender on your team is Reggie Evans.
TJ other than his contract is worthless.
The better player by far is Calderon, and people are acting like its their money they'd have to spend on him if he came to Charlotte.
