It's no secret that Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson has been flirting with the idea of Shannon Brown replacing Jordan Farmar as the team's backup point guard.

Brown has come in before Farmar in each of the Lakers' last three games, playing more minutes than Farmar in all three.

It now seems as if Jackson has officially left Farmar for the more physically impressive Brown, at least for the first round of the playoffs:

"With bigger guards, muscular guards that are pushing the ball, there's a real need or potential for Shannon to help us in the playoffs. He's got to still make some steps forward, but tonight is another example of things going well for him.

It's nothing Jordan's doing wrong. It's just something we're looking for that's different."

Man, Phil might as well have reached into Farmar's chest and ripped his heart out.

One of two things will happen:

1. Farmar will step up his game and become the player he was last season.

2. Farmar will whine like a 5 year old girl and want to be traded at the end of this season.

I'd take the 1st one.

^ I think the second is more likely to happen, and I'm not sure if I hope I'm wrong or not.

1 or 2. both are possible.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

This off-season, we are going to have a healthy Bynum, Ariza, and now, Shannon Brown.

Those additions will help us immensely on the defensive end.

Hopefully this motivates Farmar to step his game up more. I don't see him getting traded, he will still get minutes and hopefully make the best of them.

Definitely. Whenever Kobe/Bynum/Ariza/Brown are all on the floor, that's a defensive beast out there.

Unfortunately, Jordan has disappointed me just about all season. The only bright spot was that he came back quickly, but when he was out, the team was playing better defense. He didn't improve at all from the last season. His best stretch was the first half of the 2007-2008 season. He struggled since then, and in my eyes, has yet to recover.
