Among point guards in the NBA, Calderon is ranked:
1st for FG% (.545)
1st for for 2 pt FG% (.570)
1st for 3 pt FG% (.472)
1st in FT% (.923)
1st in Assist/Turnover ratio (5.11)
5th in assists per game
4th in assists per 48 minutes
His FT percentage is second overall for all positions
His FG percentage is 13th in the league, for all positions
He's 15th in PER, ahead of guards like Steve Nash, Dwayne Wade, Baron Davis, and Deron Williams.
His PPR and Assist ratio is also the best in the league: http://www.knickerblogger.net/stats/2008/jh_ALL_AST.htm
And without Jose, Toronto certainly wouldn't be over .500.
There's no doubt in my mind that he should have been an All-Star, and there really shouldn't be much doubt in anybody else's mind either.
half the stats you named are repeated stats. FG % and 2 pt fg %? not saying calderon hasnt been playing out of his mind, but good percentages and ast:to ratio never won anyone all-star game appearances, even though they should at times.
There is nothing repeated there (FG% and 2PT FG% are 2 different statistics, what is your problem there?). Some stats are put into different contexts, but I didn't write the same thing down twice.
And I think everyone knows what gets All-Star appearances...it's hype and long-term success. That's why Calderon and Turkoglu didn't make it this year.
And please, the guy is #15 in the league in PER, and having one of the best shooting seasons in the history of the NBA. Statistically, he deserves to be there, there is no argument to be had on that point.
