Jose Calderon had 14 points and 14 assists. He also broke Calvin Murphy's league record for free-throw accuracy in a season, finishing at 98.1 percent (151-for-154) after hitting both his attempts.

Jose made 2 of 2 free throws in yesterday's final game putting him up to 151 out of 154 at 98.1% and surpassing the all time record of best ft% for a season set by Calvin Murphy. Jose is now on top and it won't be an easy record to break again since it held for so very long.

^ I personally wouldn't mind having him on our team, but I'd seriously more prefer Rudy first and yeah I know they're different positions, but man, having Rudy on our team would be a dream come true.

Our own beloved Farmar could learn a thing or two from him. Maybe he should hire him as his own personal free throw shooting trainer in the offseason.

Calderón is one the hardest workers in the NBA. He doesn't have a great natural talent but still improves year after year due to his work ethics.

I agree. Rudy is not only a good 3p shoter, he is a very god defender, he is fast, and he is really good in ofensive. Would be a dream but I think its impossible by now.

^ Yeah and he's just got a huge basketball iq all around. His court awareness is fantastic. He's got an amazing passing ability and more, but as you said, at least at the moment, it seems close to impossible since he's considered one of the few untouchable players in Portland along with Brandon Roy of course, Lamarcus Aldridge, and possibly Greg Oden.
