The No. 8 pick chatted live following his selection by the Milwaukee Bucks.


TEXAS LONG HORNS: YO TJ, with all the discussion about your size, you think you can handle being an NBA PG?

T.J. Ford: (8:41 PM ET ) Yes, I do think I can handle it b/c I am determined to be successful and dedicated to the game.


AJ: TJ, wow i so upset, I was hoping you'd come to Toronto...... but thats the way life is but going on,,,,,,,, do you think you will be able to fill the point guard position the gary paton held, and lead the bucks back to the playoffs?

T.J. Ford: (8:42 PM ET ) I think I'm in a great situation, being beside two of the best point guards in the game. I can learn a lot from both of them. The Bucks were already in the playoffs, AJ!


Cody: Ford what do you think about jordan trying to buy the bucks? would you rather play for him or not?

T.J. Ford: (8:44 PM ET ) That's out of my control, but either way, the Bucks will still be a great organization to be a part of.


joe: TJ WE MISS YOU IN TEXAS BUT HOOK UM BUCKS!

T.J. Ford: (8:46 PM ET ) Thanks Joe, I'll miss all the Horn fans! But Bucks we go!
