AAAAAA

YOU DON'T KNOW THAT!!

I see what you're saying but Farmar has not played an NBA game in years! His skill set is generally known but nobody knows what he will contribute. This team, Farmar included, is a complete mystery for the most part.

I'm done.

Sad that this team is the deepest we've been in years and we may not have the wins to show for it lol.

why not say Farmar has the 'potential' to do more -_- 


it's closer to the truth.   But as it stands right now Blake has proved his worth in the NBA for the past 3 years, 2 of which Farmar was overseas so Farmar has to show it consistently at THIS level over Blake.


That is the point fido is trying to make.

 

You can't just out and out say "Farmar gives more than Blake" so soon.   Do we know if he's better defensively?  If he's a better playmaker?  etc etc?  Do we know if he could carry the Lakers offense on the 2nd half of a season without Kobe and be a key piece in them making the playoffs?

We don't know these things Blake has already proven.

 

So right now its way too soon to say Farmar gives this team so much over Blake.   He potentially could.  But he has to show it in more than just one pre-season game.   The potential for him to do more is there.  But to out and out state it is silly.

Depth doesn't equal experience together and in general.

Exactly. THANK YOU MAJESTY!

Yes he has. When he was with the Nets in the past IN THE NBA, he had plenty of games where he showed it there too. When a player has already shown you what they can do, it's clear they are capable. Then it's just a matter of putting it together consistently, but the repertoire & arsenal is more extensive in Jordan's game than Blake's.

Wow, talk about not getting the point. Farmar was a giant disappointment with the Nets and didn't play much whatsoever.

Anyway, I still find Xavier Henry the most intriguing player on this team. A year with Kobe around him could vault him quite a bit.

Other than Harris and Kelly (both went 0/1) bench players all shot above 50% . YAY!

Answer me this, can Blake create his own shot as effectively and in as many ways as Farmar can?

We don't know, Farmar has played overseas the last two years. You're basing your opinion on Farmar from years ago in a totally different situation and system. You and I both can't answer your question with factual backup.

Great, off-base non-point / argument Big Fish. Quality stuff.

You guys all have cemented opinions before and after facts. I've tried over an over to explain but you're wacky opinions aren't going to change.

Have fun with your unfounded frustrations.

I'm done for the night.

Opinion? So Farmar being more athletic than Blake is not a fact? What's so wrong with such a statement? Do you actually disagree?

It doesn't matter whether the Lakers come in to a season as contenders or underdogs, our season opener will always be nationally televised.

I didn't think my opinion was completely off base at all... Anyway good win Lakers. Bench has to keep it up when the real lights shine.

We KNOW what Blake is capable of. We know roughly how he's gonna produce this season. We know his caps - how a good season or how a bad season will look from him.

Farmar, on the other hand, we don't know what could happen. We don't know how he'd look at the highest point in his game, nor can we know the lowest point. We know what his role was in the championship squad, but we don't know how he's gonna respond other than that.

I think he'll be great, and will not be surprised if he starts in some games where Nash sits out for some rest. BUT, he might play like a scrub and play limited season most of the season. Doubt that, but it could happen. We pretty much know how much Blake will play at this point though.

Why the heck does someone have to be put down on our roster to build someone else up like when Farmar does well it means Blake sucks? -_-

Why can't they all get credit for helping the team win?

Speak for yourself. I had league pass and saw plenty of him on the Nets. He expanded his game dramatically since leaving the Lakers the first time and then even more now coming back from Europe and it's already shown. Like I said, success or not, the tools have already been shown. I know he's got more in him. Just a matter of demonstrating it now consistently & proving it.

Don't put me into that group. I never said Blake sucks. I'm simply saying I believe Farmar is better and has the way higher ceiling.

You pretty much emphasized my point. Yes, we saw what he can do under certain circumstances, but we do not know how he is gonna react in this one.

Does he have the potential? Of course.

The word 'potential' puts a rest to your argument. I'm saying that his potential could go either way (which is redundant, because potential is never guaranteed), while you're saying you've SEEN this potential. We're agreeing on different levels here.
