I like our schedule. We don't have those 5 game road trip where we face the top of the western conferences only. We do have a 6 game road trip, but the only team we face on the back end of a back to back is SA, after that, it's a lot of rest and a game. Another tough couple is Boston on back to back days, but they get the same fate as us, so it's alright. Very favourable schedule...

He may torch us, but we'll likely win cause he'll be trying to do it all on his own.

Best schedule ive seen in 3-4 years by the way.

Just wanted to see what the consensus will be on TJ's return:

at the game, are you going to:

1) boo during his introduction

2) clap and show appreciation during his introduction

my vote would be 2) clap and appreciate. as much as i didn't like his game with the raptors, i think he made significant contribution, and showed his effort by coming back to the court several times after injury. He just didn't fit well with the team after last season. Thoughts? please vote. or should i start a new thread.

I will have little emotion about TJ Ford. He wasn't here that long to make me care. If I had to choose, I would boo him though because he whined. I hate players that whine.

Same here..i'm emotionally detached from TJ , I like his game but by no means hold bitter feelings towards him. Just wasn't here long enough..unlike some people ..cough Vince cough...

Boo and hiss for me. No emotioanl attachment anymore, even though he was on the verge of becoming my fav player.

Still think he was the biggest factor in causing the late season collapse and playoff exit. However I will clap like mad if he plays like his 2008 self:
25 pts, 2 assists, on 9-29 shooting
... in a Toronto win.

I would cheer Ford during the players intros. He didn't play long here but he put up very good #'s for his 2 seasons here. He wasn't happy as a bench player but then again, Calderon wouldn't be either if he went into this season again but would anyone call him a cancer?

But once the game starts, you boo Ford just like anyone else on Indiana. Once you leave the Raptors and are playing against them, you are the enemy (with one notable Godly exception). I hope he plays horribly every time out vs Toronto.

I wouldnt Boo TJ. He played hard and didnt force his way out of Toronto. He whined a bit, but only cause he was so competitive, might have handled it wrong, but I cant fault him for it.
