I hope you enjoy it.
I'll post more as I come across it, but I'm sure many of us haven't really seen him since he left the Lakers or since he went overseas so I thought I'd post some stuff he did so we can get a grip on a few things, if not for any reason than to keep us entertained, what is for sure is he isn't the same he was and is a better pick and roll player and a better shooter than he was with us. He'll do well in this offense, but anyway here's some of Farmar you may not have seen lately.
And because I hate the Spurs I'm just gonna randomly throw this in
What's evident is that Farmar did get schooled on a few more basic things overseas and "seems" to be a better decision maker and defender as well as showing a better ability to get his own shot, there is about 3 or 4 other euroleague clips on the site but not on youtube so I'll see about downloading them and seeing what I can put here.
Anyway, I think he is probably the most underrated signing we've made this off-season.
Remember when I said last year that it would be the "worst" year to get Dwight?
Well this may be the "best" year to get Farmar and the right system too. That plus playing under Phil DOES give him some experience with playing off ball as he was forced to in the triangle, but when he went abroad to New Jersey and later to the euroleague he got a LOT of pick and roll and a lot of defensive drills, so he may be coming to us as the most complete we've had him, so I look forward to seeing what he can do in this offense.
If he's able to give us anything close to what Sessions did and actually allows Kobe to take time off ball in certain circumstances then it's a success in my eyes and this offense is the perfect to see what he can accomplish in, he couldn't be walking into a better opportunity or system so hopefully we get the best out of him and will see what he can do after the experience of having to run an offense in Europe. Working with Nash won't hurt either but the point remains.
Anyway hope you enjoy the footage and hopefully it can spark up some off-season chat and liven things up in this bit of a lull period while we wait to see if certain free agents are released =p
