T.J. Ford contemplating a comeback?


T.J. Ford’s much maligned career — riddled with harrowing injuries and transient periods of success — was officially over after he called it quits this season. The final irreperable blow was laid by Baron Davis, all 212 pounds of him, on a seemingly inconsequential possession.

Ford was fine, thankfully. But for the masses of basketball fans who know his injury history, it was natural to be worried for his future — not only as a player but as a person.

But yesterday he took to Twitter and made his wishes clear: he’s desperately longing for some basketball in his life.

While Ford is simply expressing himself, he shouldn’t be returning to a basketball court anytime soon. He may enjoy fleeting success but the potential repercussions stand to be much more significant and potentially life-altering.
