Looking at the Lakers game tonight, I see Farmar play again. Since leaving the Lakers years ago he improved significantly: last year in the Turkish league I saw him play and dominate on occassions. Now this year, he really impressed me with mature play, making shots and getting others involved.
Question for you guys: is Farmar going the start in the near future for the Lakers? What is your opinion on Farmar thus far? Should he be a starter in this league and if so, is he above average?
hes the best pg on the lakers. Im not gonna waste any energy trying to rank him league wide. But im sure glad hes on the lakers. Hes a huge reason why the lakers bench is playing so well. He attacks on offense, can shoot from three and is a solid defender. He said all pre-season that the thing he improved the most while playing overseas was his defense and it shows. His current season stats are 10.3 points, 5.3 apg, 3.8rpg, 42%fg and 2.6 turnovers in 22 minutes per game.
He should start.. Hes improved no matter what the haters say
Steve Nash is the 3rd best point guard on the roster. Why the Lakers signed him to a guaranteed 3 year deal is beyond me.
I think he should retire after this season to be honest.
bad timing for this thread, farmar stunk tonight. missed wide open jumpers and had a few key turnovers to start the 4th.
Its just my opinion but I was disappointed in the Lakers choice to still start derek fisher over this kid when he was always improving and CHOOSING to play in NBDL games and the Lakers games later on in the same night a few times.
