Jose Calderon Rumors
Jose Calderon: Everything started because I switched (onto Garnett on defense) once, and I contested one of his shots. And he made it. So he was kind of happy about it. So we went at each other. …The next possession he comes back and he’s like, ‘OK, let’s do it again.’…I think after that, he looked at me differently, like, I stood up to him or whatever. After that, we have [had] a great relationship.
Jose Calderon doesn’t believe he’s played his last game as a Knick. The veteran point guard said he wants to be back next season and thinks he will be. “I really want to stay here,” Calderon said. “I think they want me here. That’s the feeling I got. I think I really can help this team next year.”
Calderon knows the business of the NBA, and that his name will be mentioned in different scenarios this offseason. But he doesn’t seem concerned. “It’ll be there,” Calderon said with a big smile. “To be honest, I want to be here. When you go through a season like this you don’t want to be out of it when good things are coming. We’ll have some new guys or whatever. Melo will be healthy, and we’ll be good. We’ll be a good team for sure.”
