    My guess is he's probably excited to be getting back into the swing of things, hitting the practise gym, getting ready for the pre-season to start.

    he is always saying something sly that makes you think, is he talking smack about the team or is he actually serious.

    It's the "lol" (lots of laughs, or "laughing out loud" depending on your translation).

    Difficult to interpret. Might just be regular fare for texting and tweeting and nothing to get offended about.

    Or it might be a sly diss. Hmmmmmm....

    If anything, it sounds more like he doesn't feel Pacers fans like him versus he not liking Pacers fans. But who knows.

    He also asked how many Pacers fans follow him on twitter and got a nice response.

    The thing I hope people remember about Fords time here is ....

    Although you might not like the way he has played, he has handled his difficult situation in Indiana with complete class and professionalism

    After all the BS we have had to deal with the last 4 years, I will always respect him for that.

    I hope he is traded and gets a fresh start somewhere else, and makes the most of it

    I would like him to be traded before the end of camp. That being said, no one can really deny his professionalism during his time here. In 08-09 after he was benched in favor of Jack and then last season when he took a backseat to Price and Watson he handled it as well as anyone can expect.

    Yea, I'd say that would be it.

    I like TJ Ford the person. He doesn't create problems with the press (was very professional) he was nice to the younger guys..ect.

    I just don't want to see him in game.

    You nailed it. Whether or not he's a nice guy, he has been professional to the public and deserves respect for dealing with constant demotions and trade rumors. I suppose he's used to it after all of these years, but still, you have to give it up for him.

    I'm just glad we have Collison. IMO, TJ can hang around as long as it's not on the hardwood more than 10 minutes a game.

    Um, yeh. He obviously doesn't think Pacer fans want him in Indy. I hope he finds his way out of here...

    Well, except for the time he did the happy dance on the airplane in front of everyone when he thought he'd been traded...

    This shouldn't raise an eyebrow, IMO.

    In fact, he's welcoming us fans back and I assume he means welcome back to a fresh new season with a lot of potential.

    As a guy, Ford is probably one of the nicest people in the league. He always enjoys joking with the fans and I enjoy talking to him on the road.

    He's a good player. He's just not a starter. I hope he does go to a team that has success and can play a comfortable backup role.

    I thought it was reported he was jumping up and down and dancing outside while waiting to board the plane. But it was only in front of teammates and I probably would have done same thing in his situation.

    To be honest I feel sorry for the guy.

    On another note I can't understand many of the player's tweets. They all seem to have weird inflection and grammar. Maybe I'm just not "with it" though haha.

    It was reported by Mike Wells at the time the trade almost happened. We had a thread about the article.

    Here's the link to our thread. The article no longer appears on Indystar's website, but it is copied and pasted here.

    http://www.pacersdigest.com/showthread.php?t=51137

    Here's the specific paragraph I'm talking about.

    Ford was so certain he was going to be traded that he was dancing around in front of his teammates with a big smile on his face before getting on the plane.
