Ford's career over?
Reader Andrew Windler tells me that T.J. Ford's doctors won't release him to play and his career may be over. What a tragedy. Ford, easily UT's most exciting player ever, entered the NBA after his sophomore season with loads of promise at the point guard position. I can vividly recall quesitoning his decision to leave early for the NBA, but I also recall his scary injury the summer before the draft when he hurt his neck. Apparently, he knew that he was potentially one injury away from ending his career. The decision to go the NBA and get paid right away was apparently a good one. I still hold hope that Ford can get healthy and back on the court. Basketball will lose one of its most oustanding point guards, and finest men, if he doesn't.
