#26. Jose Calderon on Being Welcomed to Toronto, The International vs American Approach, Outcomes of the Raptors' European Experience

Episode Summary

On this week's episode of the Toronto Raptors official podcast Raps unPublished Season TWO(FIVE), we've got one of the all-time greats at the point guard position in franchise history, Jose Calderon.  The 2-time Olympic Silver Medalist spent 8 years with the Raptors and led the 2006-07 team to its first Atlantic Division title and at that time the franchise's best regular season record. He ranks second all-time in assists as well as top-10 in points, steals, games played, minutes, and 3-pointers made. Jose played for 8 different teams over a 14-year career in the NBA but found a second home here in Toronto. Numero Ocho was known for his perfection from the free-throw line, his league leading assist-to-turnover ratio, and also introducing the NBA to the 3-point celebration.
