Jose Calderon is a lot of things.

He's a scrappy point guard, probably the kindest, most unselfish teammate I've ever seen and he isn't a great quote, but he's a pleasant interview. He's a good guy. He works hard. He claps on defense a lot. He gets clowned often for his inability to stay with speedy point guards and get back on D.

Last night against the Nuggets, Calderon got back on D. His reward? 

JaVale McGee turning him into a poster. 

Check the clip below, but remember that the team with the best dunk doesn't always win the game. In this case, the Raptors came out victorious after things fell apart in the fourth quarter for Denver. The loss was Denver's second against Eastern Conference opponents this season, the other coming against the Cavaliers
