DALLAS -- With a baby on the way in two weeks, Dallas Mavericks point guard Jose Calderon said this is probably his last summer playing international basketball for his native country of Spain.
Owner Mark Cuban isn't exactly thrilled with his players playing internaitonal basketball. But with his Spain teammates include Pau and Marc Gasol, and Ricky Rubio, Calderon sees playing with the national team as somewhat an extension of playing for the Mavs.
"It helps me to stay in shape and keep in shape,'' the 32-year old Calderon said. "For me it's great.
"I work out with Ricky Rubio and Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol and get ready for the season. We don’t do like people used to do, like running in the mountains or stuff like that. We just practice, we shoot the ball and play a little bit 5-on-5.''
