He was a journey man after his stint with the Raptors. We had some decent teams while he was the main PG in Toronto.

I'm surprised he played as long as he did. Those injuries he suffered with the Bucks and Raptors, I still cringe when I see those plays.

I wish him the best on all future endeavours.

I admittedly lost track of Ford after a while so I just took a quick look at his career statistics. He had solid years for Toronto, but his longest stint came in Indiana, where he played three years (in contrast to two seasons a piece for Milwaukee and Toronto). After year one in Indiana, his statistics very much began to dwindle.

I have to be real and admit I wasn't any kind of T.J. Ford fan or anything, but it did bum me out to watch him go down with that back injury in Milwaukee. On one hand it's a shame to watch someone's NBA career stifled due to injury at such a young age. On the other hand, he was able to live out a dream of his. Sometimes it can be most beneficial to be thankful for what one was able to experience as opposed to regretting what did not happen. The fact he was able to return from such a serious injury and put in nearly 8 years of work is admirable.

If not for the back injury this guy could've been a good starter for solid 10 years.

This. I miss watching the healthy version of him. Shame he had that terrible back injury, then as he was coming back had another one on that hit by Horford. I'll never forget the lack of reaction on the raptors bench that day though.

That sucks. Not much of a fan of his playing style but he was a class guy during his time in Indy. Hope for nothing but success and good health in his future. I expect to be hearing him on a sideline soon.

Three years, escalates with more service time obviously. Can start collecting at 50. And the NBA matches 401k's up to 140%.

He was expected to become a top level PG. I remember on draft night, they werent talking about Bron, Melo and Wade......... They were talking about Bron, Melo and Ford. That injury he had where he missed the entire season put an end to it.
