TJ Ford Has to Deliver Now

by September 28, 2009

His main competition for playing time is no longer on the team, and the pressure to produce is now squarely on Ford’s shoulders: “Jarrett Jack is with the Toronto Raptors, and team officials let Ford know early in the offseason that he’s the starter. Earl Watson who signed a one-year deal, will be his backup. Now it’s up to Ford to produce. ‘It’s about being consistent,’ Ford said. ‘I have a good feel for the guys now. I’m just trying to do everything possible to get into the playoffs. That’s the biggest thing for me. I don’t want to miss it two years in a row. Just try to do whatever it takes to win; whether it’s offensively or even defensively.”‘
