Video: T.J. Ford Has A Texas-Themed Basketball Court In His Backyard

We’re admittedly a few years late to the party here, but we still figured that Texas fans would appreciate the school pride that former Longhorns point guard T.J. Ford displays on a daily basis. Ford, who starred for the program from 2001-2003, apparently has a Longhorns-themed basketball court in his backyard. He posted a short Instagram clip of his son dunking on a lowered hoop...

After slow Texas decline, Barnes' future uncertain

The Texas Longhorns have been in a long, steady decline. And given the player exodus since last season, coach Rick Barnes is under increasing pressure to make a quick turnaround. For more than a decade, Barnes pushed the Texas program to new heights: A Final Four appearance, the first No. 1 ranking in school history and two Longhorns, T.J. Ford and Kevin Durant, earned national...

Spurs' Cory Joseph battled self-doubt

Ex-Texas Longhorn and former San Antonio Spurs guard T.J. Ford knows what it takes to make it in the NBA. The highs, lows, the battles and just trying to fit in with the right team at a high level is taxing on young players. And this struggle wasn't lost with Cory Joseph. Cory saw himself drafted after one year with Texas, then found himself buried on the bench, playing...

Toros promote Jenkins to head coach

As we spoke about when former Austin Toros head coach Brad Jones was hired as an assistant with the Utah Jazz, the Toros had two assistants that they could easily promote to replace Jones, especially since they've been part of the Toros franchise since under Quin Snyder's reign. Spurs Sports & Entertainment did just so, promoting Taylor Jenkins to the head coaching...

It's a time for them to unwind, relax and let their bodies heal but not for Spurs' Stephen Jackson.

Video: Mills ready for Spurs’ system

Picking up a player this late in the season to help with the playoffs seems kind of pointless. No matter how talented, you can’t just stick a guy on the court, point him to the hoop and say “go!” Luckily, the San Antonio Spurs know what they’re doing. When they signed Australian point guard Patrick Mills, they got someone who could fit right in. One of the Spurs’ assistant...

Recently retired San Antonio Spurs point guard T.J. Ford is always going to have his list of “what if’s.” What if he hadn’t gotten badly injured in his rookie season? What if he had been able to play out his full career without the constant fear of permanent paralysis? What if he had reached his full potential? What would that have looked like for Ford? If you ask him, he’ll...
