      didnt look that serious, and doug smith said it wasnt that serious
      the backlash of this will be his trade worth, for sure it will go down again coz it just re-affirmed his hamstring issues.

        He'll be back before October I think. He's a strong lad, will work hard to recover.

            This could be a blessing in disguise.

            This injury which doesn't appear to be major should keep him from any more of these European summer games which do nothing but tire a player out for the NBA grind. increase his risk of injury during the season because of playing all those minutes and don't really improve his game against NBA starters.

            Besides this injury almost guarantees a Team USA gold in the 2010 FiBA World Tournament Sarcasm.

            But seriously, Spain without Pau and Jose is at least a bit weaker than with them.

              This could also be bad for team USA. Cause this only means that Rubio will have to play more minutes. Uh oh. :O HAHA

                His is young. He can handle the minutes.

                  Rubio is better than the PGs in team USA. He'll destroy them with his court vision :P

                    Doesn't this basically kill any trade value that he might have had?

                      Jose Got Hurt: Out for at least 4 Weeks

                      It seems like Raptor fans can finally put aside the Jose trade rumors/ scenarios to rest and move on with their lives. Jose is Out for at least 4 weeks ( I fear it is worst given the history of Spanish Basketball Federation and ... ). There is one thing harder than trading an over paid no defense PG in this league and that is trading an injured , over paid, no defense PG.



                      ************************************************** ******

                      MADRID (AP) -- Spain point guard Jose Manuel Calderon will miss the basketball world championships after hurting his leg in an exhibition against the United States.



                      Tests Monday revealed the Toronto Raptors player tore a muscle in his left leg in Sunday's 86-85 loss. Calderon had headed to the locker room late in the game. He went scoreless with three assists.
                      The Spanish federation says Calderon needs four weeks to recover.
                      The 28-year-old was part of Spain's 2006 world champion team and won Olympic silver two years ago in Beijing.
                      Calderon says "there is not much to say. It's a pity I was injured at the last minute."
                      The world championships run from Aug. 28-Sep. 12 in Turkey.

                        i can think of a few other things that 'kill' his trade value...

                          I am not sure that he is better in every aspect of his game than the Team USA PGs.

                          However, it appears to me that he is better at passing than the Team USA PGs.

                          Based upon the current roster before the cut to 12

                          Rondo is a better defender though Rubio is pretty good. I want to see him in the NBA before upgrading that

                          Rose is a far better scorer than Rubio

                          Westbrook has a better all around game than Rubio

                          Right now I would them

                          1. Westbrook
                          2. Rondo
                          3. Rose
                          4. Rubio
                          X. Calderon
