As we've seen so many times, TJ Ford with another beautiful assist.

I just got off the phone with TJ (and Alfio Randall-Veasey) and talked a little about the event TJ's putting on in Houston July, 27, 28, 29. It's a Pro/Am Tourney with a $5,000 purse and all donations and proceeds will be donated to the Houston Independent School District.

TJ Ford has always called Houston home. His Basketball roots were firmly planted here, and he has always been passionate about giving back to the community that helped raise him. This year, he is proud to announce his latest philanthropic endeavor, the H-Town Shootout. TJ Ford’s Inaugural H-Town Shootout aims to give back to the Houston community in many different ways. All proceeds raised will benefit the designated Houston Independent School District host high schools. The funds will assist these schools in their efforts to overcome current budget deficits. In addition, TJ hopes to spur economic activity to the areas surrounding these host schools and make an impact on the children of greater Houston.

As faithful readers know, TJ is one the big three in my Longhorn Pantheon along with Ricky and VY. We're lucky enough to get to ask TJ some questions and are probably going to have him on a podcast next week. Look for these interviews here and over on Burnt Orange Nation.

I also figured some of the hoopheads in our audience will have some good questions too. Please leave those below and we'll try to get some of those answered. Let us know what you want to know about high school ball in Houston, TJ's time on the 40 Acres, in the NBA, etc. I personally want to know what he and Bobby Knight were discussing during the Big 12 Tournament his Final Four year.

Check out the event. Follow along on Twitter:
