Having a hand in 80 percent of your team's decisions

Good quote from DEN coach George Karl about TOR point guard Jose Calderon, who, as this article points out, isn't particularly well known because he's understated, didn't play college basketball in the States, and plays north of the border in Toronto.

"He's a true point who cares about the point," Karl said, "and in the last few years we talk about Chris Paul and Deron Williams, but this kid isn't very far behind him. I think Calderon is (John) Stockton-like. Eighty percent of his team's decisions are made by his decisions."
