Guys someone in the Toronto area must start posting signs to get rid of TJ FORD. Our next game we fans must boo the living hell out of Ford. Management must hear it. The way things are going don't be surprised that our second best player on the team leaves us in the summer. How in the hell does Jose go from being on the brink of making the all star team and running our team to the point guard that is playing second fiddle to a selfish little shit.Our team looks out of control right now. I said before and I will say it again this 2 point guard senerio will not work. Get Ford the f____k out of here. I am embarrased to be a Raptors fan with Ford on the team.

Any Raptor fan is delusional if they don't think Colangelo doesn't know there's an issue right now and what fans think of Ford. Problem is and what most of you refuse to understand or listen to is that moving him with his history of serious injuries and inflated contract make him basic impossible to move. In a fantasy world its easy to propose, but in the real world its a much different story.

Jose Calderon remember the name raptor fans because he will no longer wear a raptor uniform in tyhe summer. As this article puts it from the Sun, "The fact that Kobe won this battle, blocking the dunk before Nesterovic cleaned it up with a nice follow doesn't take away from the moment.

Ford felt strong enough and confident enough in his game to try this move and that speaks volumes to how far his game has come the past few weeks.

Ford admitted it wasn't something he would have tried even a week ago.

"I just tried to give it my best shot," he said. "I was feeling good at the time. I knew he would try to block the shot whether I laid it up or not. But I guarantee you if I felt 100%, I'm pretty sure I would have dunked on him. I just tried to be aggressive and take it to him. Obviously, he made a great play in blocking the shot but if I had to do it over, I'd do it again."
The fact that Kobe won this battle, blocking the dunk before Nesterovic cleaned it up with a nice follow doesn't take away from the moment.

ITS ALL ABOUT TJ FORD AND NOT THE TEAM. TJ WANTS HIS STARTING JOB BACK. ARE WE THAT STUPID AS A TEAM TO GIVE IT BACK TO HIM WHEN CLEARLY THE SELFISH LITTLE SQUIREL ONLY CARES ABOUT HIMSELF. JOSE Calderon IS NOT PLAYING HIMSELF OUT OF THE STARTING AND LEADER OF THIS TEAM, THE SELFISH SHIT HAS CRIED BEHIND CLOSED DOORS AND WHAT HAPPENS JOSE IS NOW PLAYING REDUCED MINUTES. WE MUST ALL BAND TOGETHER AND LET THE TORONTO KNOW WE WILL NOT ACCEPT THIS SHIT. OUR VOICES MUST BE HEARD THAT TJ MUST GO. COUNT ALL THE I'S ANY I'S IN TEAM.

Well I'm not gonna argue that Jose should be starting, however, that was a good play, I was proud of Ford for takking it at him.

You can't have it both ways fella's, either you promote aggressive play or you don't.

Lets not use this play as a way to attack Ford, there's plenty of other threads for that.

I'd say, HELL YES FORD, NICE TAKE BOY!!!!!!!!

If Parker had half his will to dunk he'd be cappinghalf the league regularily

Good point..it's nice to have someone attacking the basket and geting to the line late in games again...Bosh and Ford are the only ones on the team that do it and it's something a good team needs to close out close games....came out on the short end this time but LA is elite and we're not so it's not a disaster by any stretch.

Default Bang on Raptor123

TJ is a cancer, and he's killing this team. All TJ cares about is getting his. He doesn't care if we win or lose, as long as he has a good line.
I've been saying it for a year, and he's getting worse and worse. Let's trade him for a big man as we obviously need one.

Could you please provide a link with this proof? I'm curious to know how you know this for a fact other than assumptions.

I don't think the problem is TJ only caring about "getting his", it's the fact that he feels it's his duty to be MJ and win games by himself. He's still trying to win, he's just doing it the wrong way. He needs to trust the other players.

Then Sam should be the one held accountable for his actions. If everyone feels this way towards Ford, then Mitchell isn't doing his job as a coach because A) he's either telling to Ford to do his thing and don't worry about the end result (which I highly doubt he is doing) or B) there' no discipline or repercussions by Sam for letting Ford go nuts and control the game as much as he tries too.

But anyhow, the rest of this team has been absolutely pathetic for over a week now. I will be critical of one thing though and that I noticed the last couple games and that being that neither Jose nor T.J. are attempting to run anything on offense. If we're gonna get out of this funk, then we have to start with something on offense at least. Right now we look like we're playing pickup ball at the local Y.

But, is it Ford's fault that no one can defend period on both the perimeter and the interior? Is it Ford's fault that no one this team boxes out or rebounds? I guess it must be me then and that Ford is soooo much a cancer that the other 11 guys on this team have forgotten how to play basketball. :cm34:
