What was good and bad about TJ Ford?
What did you like and dislike about him

The good: He showed flashes of being a truly elite point guard, especially the first week of the season. At his best, he was running the show, penetrating and kicking, and rebounding amazingly well for a guy his height. One of the fastest players in the league, and best passers. By default, he's a top 5 point guard, since there are barely more true point guards than that in today's NBA.

The bad: His attitude is a little messed up, and he doesn't understand his limitations (the fact that he can't shoot or finish layups). We could never figure out why he seemed to understand the game better, and how to play point guard during his rookie season than last year. Maybe because he spent so much time in the offseason "perfecting" his jump shot, he thought he should display it more during games? His effort was very suspect at times, and he had to be benched a couple times for the sake of motivation. Once got frusterated and decided not to come to the defensive side of the floor for an entire 15 second possession. No matter how good he becomes, he's still 5'11".

good -- his speed
bad -- his speed
when you just beat everyone down the floor and force something bad or turn it over where did that speed really get you ?????????

i like how he is quick to. but at the same time he needs to work on decision making and knocking down the jumper:pimp:

My comments may not be too accurate because I have only seen TJ play once - against Orlando last season (I'm from Aus and I saw the game whilst holidaying in Orlando), but I think that TJ is a good, quick player who can penetrate effectively, however he has some weaknesses:
1) holds onto the ball for too long
2) doesn't make the best decisions
3) gets too many turnovers

The Good - Speed, leader on offense, good passer, unselfish.

The Bad - Size, injuries, jumper.

People are forgetting that he came off a serious injury that hindered his development in the offseason. His jumper was better last year.

I would love him on the Hawks.
