There aren't many players that are starting unit players that wouldn't be vocally disapointed with losing minutes so to pick on Ford is utterly unfair. Jose to this point hasn't been that guy and we'll see at season's end where he signs but what young confident and highly skilled player who was signed as a team's starting point guard wouldn't be protective of his job? Last season when he came back from injury off the bench he was very open to the idea and very gracious about it. He never complained when Jose finished off games instead of him...but sure he likes to be on the court. He sees himself as a starting guard and there really is no debate that that is true.
The issue here shouldn't even be about who's better...and as in my other thread it's goinkg to come down to what one man wants to do...Bryan Colangelo. He is very likely going to have to move one of these guys... Jose's current contract and TJ's current health situation make both of those potential moves difficult to manufacture. All we can really do is wait to see what BC does.
