Default Best backup PG

Who do you guys think is the best backup PG this year?
For me, it's Jose Calderon, but Jason Terry comes close.

jose calderon without a doubt. No backup pg in the league comes close to calderon. Dude has 16 pts and 18 rebounds last night as a starter. Tell me how many backup pg's can actually start and get you those kind of numbers consistently?

close this thread...this discussion is over!

Jose Calderon and it's not even close. The way he controls the game, even as a backup, is amazing.

I am a fan of the underdogs and I think he would be a good backup Point Guard for many more years in his NBA Career.

Look at what you just posted, "Would Be".. I think this thread is referring to best back up pg's now. Not players that "Would be" a good back up point guard.

Just wait after the NBA All Star break i am sure Darius Washington would be a complementary PG to Tony Parker.

He can play the Boobie Gibson role for the San Antonio Spurs when he is sitting on the bench. He is not more of a playmaker but i think give him another season, and he can be as good as Prime Darrell Armstrong.

Darius currently lead the D-League in scoring, and you can actually see his progressed if Coach Popovich will give him enough playing time in the Spurs rotation.

Well ever since Pape Sow's 20/10 domination of the D-League. I'm kind of wary of these numbers.
