The Toronto Raptors Point Guard Situation

The point guard spot is full of questions this upcoming year for Toronto. It was probably the most inconsistent position for the Raptors this year. At times it was the most productive, at times the least.

Jose Calderon had a horrible year, at least with his standards. He used to be a great point guard, with the best assist to turnover ratio in the league, and a quick first step. Now it seems as though he has lost his confidence, lost his swagger, lost something.

Jarrett Jack was a great pick-up for Toronto, and most people say that he was the better point guard by far. While Jack is a better defender than Calderon, that’s not to say that he’s a lockdown point guard. Jack provided sparks at times, but he was very inconsistent as well.

In my opinion, Calderon was less effective because Hedo Turkoglu was in town. Hedo wanted the ball in his hands most of the time to create plays, and this made Calderon less effective. Calderon is a better playmaker than Jack, but Jack is a better scorer.
