Hopefully Farmar can wake up by the time the playoffs start.

I like Farmar but believe Shannon should take over tha backup role of Fisher this season, I think you are all giving up on Farmar too easy. He will be back to improving just like we saw him from his rookie season to his sophmore season.

Brown is playing a lot better than Farmar right now, and I think he can have a very good career here with us.

Guess the trade really worked out well for LA they got cap space to resigne ariza and Odom and they got another X factor for the playoffs. Can you say championship?

I hope Brown can be consistent if we give him more minutes.

I also hope Farmar finds his game because when he is on he can be really effective.

shannon should get more pt at the moment, but i believe jordan will come back strong after this season. last season luke walton looked like crap on the floor but this season i think its safe to say that hes a major contributor to the team. some players just need time to recover and get back on track. look at dywane wade for example.

wow shannon was pretty impressive with 2 or so critical treys. farmar should jot down some notes because he's gonna be spending a lot of minutes on that bench.

Pretending like we've been watching SB play basketball for the last two years isn't really surprising but still funny. People tend to forget the mental aspect of being that third option, it frees you up, no pressure because nobody has seen you play well. This isn't me saying he can't play, just pointing out that I'll take the young PG from UCLA who played in a long playoffs and rough finals last season for the long haul. But SB coming in and sneaking in some 3's and athletic plays doesn't hurt either.

And shush "Luke has been horrible this season" person.

Farmer will make all of you eat those words. Lets look at career stats and career highs. i Like brown and I think he can help the team, but Farmer could start for this team RIGHT NOW, if Fisher went down with an injury and brown couldnt at THIS point. Dont get me wrong, jordan is playing as bas as he has ever played while in a Laker uniform, but we could have said that about kobe for a seven game strecth, or sasha this year, or some of the down strecthches lamar goes on. bottom line is larry brown who loves defenders didnt mind getting rid of the guy, and for reasons we have yet to see, but I have no doubt we will soon see

As usual, you speak the truth. It's true that Jordan has hit a bad spell: can't defend, shoot or finish. But his play in the beginning of the season (pre injury) is what gives me hope. It's always shocking (although it shouldn't be by now) how quickly posters on this site turn on once productive players when they've hit a rough patch. That said, I like Brown's defense, and situationally he could be the first guard off the bench.

luc walton has been horrible this season to ever since that ankle injury he has been a step slower in all aspects of his game

Especially his assists per minute ratio.
