TJ Ford is a Texas Basketball legend. In high school at Willowridge in Houston, TJ led his team to two Texas state basketball titles. He continued his career at the University of Texas where, in addition to leading his team in steals and minutes, he became the first freshman player in NCAA history to lead the nation in assists per game. TJ went on to win BIG 12 Freshman of the Year honors and in his sophomore year, won the Naismith College Player of the Year Award, the John R. Wooden player of the Year Award and was named Player of the Year by Sports Illustrated. If not enough, the University of Texas retired TJ’s #11 jersey making him just the fourth University of Texas athlete in history, in any sport, to have that honor along with Roger Clemens, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.
After 2 strong seasons at Texas, TJ was picked 8th overall in the NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. Over eight seasons, he went on the play with the Toronto Raptors, Indiana Pacers and the San Antonio Spurs. On March 7th, 2012, TJ, who has spinal stenosis (an abnormal narrowing of the spinal canal), aggravated his spine during a game against the New York Knicks. A few days after the injury TJ, at age 28, announced that he was retiring from the NBA in order to avoid any future incident that might permanently render him paralyzed.
