Pronounced "Forderón". Nickname given to the Toronto Raptors' prolific point guard duo of T.J. Ford and Jose Calderon. They shared the position from 2006-2008 until Ford was traded to Indiana in a six player trade in June 2008.
Other variations: Caldeford or T.Jose Caldeford
"But now the Raptors have an answer for all of that. Thanks to the prolific posters at Realgm.com, their two-headed, four-named duo of T.J. Ford and Jose Calderon has been shortened to Forderon for the sake of brevity and, truth be told, accuracy.
The big-name one names dominate the top of the NBA's point guard statistics, which ideally communicate both efficiency and generosity.
Chris Paul leads the NBA with an average of 10.6 assists a game. Kidd is second with 10.4, while Williams has 10 and Nash and Davis have 8.9 and 8.8, respectively.
But Forderon might be superior to all of them. Ford is sixth in assists with an average of 8.1 a game, while Calderon is tied for 14th with 6.6. No other point guard duo has two halves in the top 20 in the league."
