Impromptu press conference from earlier today. Does a lot of reflecting.

He's a 5'11" PG who can dunk. I respect that. 28 yrs.old is still young.

Spurs fan here and I didn't have a clue TJ was 28. Sad that he has to call it a career so early. And especially when we have no proven backup PG.

Such a shame, he showed such promise before his first injury.

Yeah they have been playing without T.J. Ford pretty much anyway. Manu minutes are very limited, but I'm sure they will make it work. This will give Gary Neal, Kawhi, and Danny Green more playing time, which they've earned.

does anybody think that his inury(ies) could have been lessened if he wore padded under gear?




under armour makes compression gear with padding sewn into it....

I've seen the hip protection but do they make tanks with rib and spine padding?


I think they should..... early in wade's career...I predicted that he'd played 5 years max...because he got airborne in weird positions so often

Doubt it. Padding is nice but would likely not have absorbed enough of the shock from the falls he took to make much difference.
