I find that funny as well. TJ Ford is averaging 2.4 turnovers a game. That is not a lot by any means, especially when you consider the way that Ford plays (i.e. agressive, fast paced game)
Calderon is averaging 1.8 turnovers a game which is fantastic, but overrated if you actually watch Calderon play. It is hard to turn the ball over when you play such a passive game. (i.e. pulling up on fast breaks, making conservative plays)
If you compare the turnovers it is only a measley 0.6 difference and when you factor in the complete opposite playing styles, I don't find Calderon's turnover numbers so much better then Ford's.
(Not sure if those are the exact turnover numbers. Last I remember those are what they were so I just went with that.)
