    Ford *might* be a better one-on-one scorer. He is probably a guy you would roll the dice with for a last second shot. But he's not a better PG because he does the opposite of what a good PG should do...and that's to move the ball, shoot from the perimeter when necessary and get other players involved. Those are the reasons Ford does not have a lock on the job and never will.

    Ford is a miniature, faster version of Jamaal Tinsley with absolutely no ability to create opportunities for his team mates, worse handles and even worse perimeter shooting. His only positive basketball attribute is his quickness...and the occasional one-on-one score. That does not make him a better PG.

    Edit: btw, Ford was benched for the month of January and the first game in February. We won 8 games during that stretch going 8-10...beating teams like Philly, Orlando, Toronto, Phoenix...not just the Nets. That's .444 for the math-challenged. Since then, we have gone 4-13. You do the math this time.
    I still question if that's why Larry let's JOB play AJ. We go close to .500 with a Watson/Price pg rotation, that really hurts the chances in the lottery.

    I'm sure JOB thinks we win more with TJ/Watson..but it's quite clear we don't. The real question is whether it's the addition of Price or the subtraction of TJ that allows us to win more.

    Yes.
