Blake is a better defender??? Really??  Blake had his best year as a Laker last year and that wasn't fabulous. I'd be happy just to have a guard that can DUNK!!! 

 

Luke Walton can dunk

Speed is the reason Morris managed minutes. farmar has got enough talent to be a part of NBA roster


And when's the last time u seen him play?

Really?!  Dunking is important to you?

 

That kinda speaks volumes.

It was sarcasm and fun but you really don't want to go there with me regarding knowledge.....Trust me...I've lived the history Mr Google Man. By the way, I'm on this site strictly to have fun, not live out some dream as if what we say means a damn thing to Jim, Mitch or anyone else. I've been a fan long enough to not only remember Mitch playing with his bum knee but other PF's that made a difference. Ron Brewer, Jim Chones, Mark Lansberger, all before Kurt,  AC Green, Rodman, Thompson. You can't Google stats to understand how some of these unsung heros made a difference to Showtime and beyond. And no; Dunking isn't that important to me but it is to Miami and Dwight Howard and that speaks volumes for them

Ok...too tense and serious in here...

 

 

Does Jordan Farmar have the weirdest ears of any NBA player ever?  LOL

 

 

And as far as him being able to crack this roster?  Sure...but if Phil is coming back, it wouldn't matter.  He'd be relegated to spot up shooter...so he'd probably want to steer clear of this roster anyway...

 

 

MDA?  Maybe.  But if we're stuck with MDA, we're probably Dwight-less also...so no appeal for him there either.

 

Just not seeing a place for him here.  Not with both Blake and Nash on the roster...some may say he's insurance for Nash...I think we'll be back in the Triangle before long so we have Kobe and Meeks to take care of that...

So we are interested in Farmar ... while the Clippers talk to Carl Landry and OJ Mayo today.  How times have changed.

I'd really like to see the Lakers add Carl Landry to this squad...

 

 

The other players I'd like them to ad are Jeff Green/Brandon Bass for Pau/picks...now that BOS is rebuilding, I think the cap space next summer would be just what they'd want.  And the Lakers would have exactly what they need...

 

 

But if we land Farmar, I think it will be more for his familiarity with the Triangle than his actual skill-sets...plus, I'm sure his agent keeps in touch with Mitch...just like Sasha's agent.

Glad it was sarcasm - you scared me.

 

Believe it or not, I've heard that sentiment from way too many people about some players.  It's destroyed my ability to gauge sarcasm about it.

The Clips with guys who aren't EVEN All-stars , just goo dplayers, and the Lakers currently, have 3 Hall of Famers, 

 

 

Things haven't really changed that much

 

 

Are the Clippers even spending into the luxury tax.

 

And in the end, will they make it past the first round or second round?

 

Doc won a title, when he had BY FAR the best talent in th e league.

 

Lost to Orlando in 7 the year after that, and lost 18 games in a row, the season before that.

 

Blew a 3-2 lead against the Lakers and heat the years after that.

 

 

he had a healthy Ronsodo to start the season and some talent, and they didn't do a damn thing.

 

 

 

So, things change.

 

LAKERS won the OFFseason by a lot last summer

 

 

How did that work out during the season.

 

 

 

 

I HATE my fellow fans' spoiled sense of entitlement

Fido, I think you're shortchanging DUNKING and in particular athleticism.

 

 

Dwight could barely dunk to start the season and Pau couldn't, and we SUCKEd

 

 

DeAndre Jordan 's a good cog because he can run the floor, and dunk the ball 

 

So when you talk about Farmar, guards who can dunk, are better in transition than guards who can't.

 

 

Now, Farmar can't lead a break like CP3 or Nash, but his athletic ability can create situations that have good results for the Lakers.

 

 

 

Sessions is a good example

CP3 and Nash just proved your statement wrong.

Transition basketball isn't about dunking the ball, it's making the right decision down the court. There's no better proof of that than Smush Parker, a guard who could lift off from 10 feet away and give us a pretty dunk, but made poor decisions often and found himself caught up on the break.

Athleticism is important, but for guards, layups and dunks don't determine how effective they are. There are plenty of guards who rarely dunked the ball, and they would eat up defenses with plays at the rim. Allen Iverson comes to mind before anyone else, along with the two you named (CP3 and Nash), among others. Deron Williams and Rajon Rondo rarely dunk the ball. Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving...both shoot the rock or lay it up off the glass. These are the best PG's in the game.

Please read everythiung i said in this thread before dissecting it.

 

 

 

farmar rarely dunks, number one

 

 

His athleticism or rather the ability to dunk is valuable to a team with little speed and athleticism

 

he was a good finisher with no traffic whereas Morris can't finish. Blake doesn't get to the rim and Nash doesn't that much either.

 

 

His brings a different dynamic.

 

 

Just like Sessions made us abetter fast breaking team, Farmar will too.

 

 

The ability to dunk has good effects on team.

 

 

Period

Why the hate?

A much younger (read: inexperienced) Farmar was good enough to be the backup PG on two championship teams!

Are we in a better position now? I'd rather have Farmar than Blake to be honest.

 

It's highly unlikely, but for the right price... why not?

Already did. Blake is the better shooter, better decision maker and passer and plays better defense than Farmar.

The athleticism advantage of farmar doesn't trump everything else Blake has on him.
