maybe some of you have read this already....but this interview with colangelo and mitchell sounds exciting.  Courtesy of realgm.com user TicaL0.

Here's a small excerpt:

Quote
QUESTION: u traded for an oft injured guard.. are u worried?

BC: (licks his lips, smiles...) 'Yesterday.. Tj Ford.. in transition on the break.. leaped up and slammed home a 360 dunk' ... ' In a game situation... i believe that should tell you about how he's feeling'

MORE TJ stuff...

(excitedly speaking he mentioned...)

*TJ has been throwing lobs to himself and dunking them
* Off the backboard lobs and slamming them
*For a 5'11 Guy to do that.. I believe his past injury is not an immediate concern.... we're looking at the positives "

oft injured?  you can't be often injured when you're 23.

We don't need ford to be able to 360 dunk, so if he can do that stuff he's athletic enough for me.

I just hope the comments about his great passing come true.

if i remember correctly...TJ was fouled hard trying to dunk/layup and landed on his tailbone.   i think colangelo was just excited that he seems to be over that and isn't afraid to go to the hoop strong.  shows a lot about his mentality.  

BTW...we signed up on the same day...lol

TJ had a back injury.  if it's completely healed, he's no more or less likely to have another injury than any other player.

yes, some people's style of play puts them at more of a risk for injury, but I still think that just because TJ has missed games in the past does not mean he's likely to get injured this season
