A better rule is to count all players not born in the U.S. and who did not attend a U.S. high school. That puts Spain, with 220 WAR, at the top. And the Gasols make up nearly three-quarters of their home country’s NBA success. The other top players from Spain include Jose Calderon, Ricky Rubio and Rudy Fernandez, among others. Germany slides to fourth, behind the U.S. Virgin Islands and Nigeria, using this method. Why? Because Detlef Schrempf (and his 90 career WAR) is excluded from this analysis. Schrempf, German-born and raised, moved to the U.S. to finish high school. The Virgin Islands, being a territory, arguably doesn’t count as international, but it competes under its own flag so it’s broken out here. Tim Duncan is responsible for the bulk of the Virgin Islands’ WAR; Hakeem Olajuwon similarly for Nigeria. FiveThirtyEight

While a new trade involving Calderon may happen, he's is not going to push for it, says agent Mark Bartelstein. "Jose is the ultimate professional and he's never going to demand to be traded," Bartelstein told HoopsHype. "He's disappointed by the way things are going, but he's going to try to make it right. We're aware the Knicks are in a state of transition and a trade is a realistic possibility because many teams are interested in Jose, but if a move happens it's never going to be because we're requesting it."

With the Knicks now owners of the worst record and perhaps worst roster in the league as Phil Jackson hits the reset button in New York, league sources say the next player on the move could be point guard Jose Calderon. But at age 33 with two years and more than $15 million left on his contract, that will be a difficult proposition. Calderon came to the Knicks in the trade that sent Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to Dallas. For all he was faulted for in New York, Chandler has done what he has done for years -- made his team better than it was before he got there. The Mavs are fourth in the West, having won six in a row and eight of 10. CBSSports.com

Knicks point guard Jose Calderon claims a fan tried to get a little too frisky with him after he barreled into the Garden crowd in the second half of Friday's 97-81 loss to the Detroit Pistons. When Calderon tried to get up and return to action, he said the fan tried to get a little action of his own. It appeared as though the fan was holding onto Calderon and patting him on the chest as he tried to get free to return to the floor. New York Daily News

The Knicks were trailing 75-46 with 2:57 left in the third quarter at the time of the incident. And Calderon reacted angrily, apparently yelling as he tried to get up. “I don’t know,” Calderon said later. “He didn’t let me keep going. I was trying to stand up, but he [held] me, loved me or something. I have no idea.” New York Daily News

Calderon still has two years left on his pact after this season. There’s speculation the Suns would trade Dragic if they had the slightest hint he was eyeing a departure. Any play on Dragic could mean Calderon gets shipped out. Dragic is a younger, sleeker model. Meanwhile, Calderon has emerged as a leader in the locker room even as the Knicks’ season spirals out of control at 5-22. New York Post

That’s one reason Anthony is pleased to see Jose Calderon back on the court. “Jose knows how to run an offense, especially an offense like this," Anthony said. "He can shoot the ball, he can spread the court. But most importantly, his IQ out there on the basketball court, I thin,k is very high. That’s something that, at that position, we’ve been missing.” ESPN.com

The Knicks’ 115-99 blowout loss to the Timberwolves on Wednesday night could be the last time they play without Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon. The Knicks are laying the groundwork not only for Bargani to make his season debut Saturday against the winless Sixers but also for Calderon to join him. There have been so many setbacks along the way, Knicks coach Derek Fisher is being cautious about penciling them in for Saturday. But it’s in the designs. New York Post
