Assuming He Stays on the Lakers

Under What Circumstance/When Do You think He Will be a Starter?

I'm very impressed with his game as a PG, and I really think he will be a great starter some day, maybe when fisher retires?

In a couple of years.... Fisher is still our starter because he's the better player. Farmar needs to be more consistent for the whole season and play defense before he can start.

Never. I really don't see Farmar as a solid starting point guard in the West. He works hard, but he doesn't have the defense and the consistency, and unless he develops at a faster rate, we're going to need a defensive point guard that can focus for 35 minutes a game.

This.

Bryant, who will be representing Team USA for the first time, told Gasol: "Being that we lost this series, you (guys) have no chance at a gold medal. I ain't goin' 0 for 2, homie."

Yeah i really don't think that he will be able to start. He is not a consistent player on both ends and he tends to jack up 3 pointers when things are not working out. Unless he progresses into a consistent defensive minded point guard i don't see him as a starter.

Never? I agree with you that he needs to improve, but he's been improving every year. I expect him to play a lot better this year. He can be a solid starter in the future... maybe 13 PPG and 5 Asts.

Farmar isn't a starter in this league, maybe on a team like the Magic.


But anywhere else, no.

Farmar allows nearly 48% shooting from the field against bench players right now. Steve Nash, whose defense is about as good as a sleeping bag in a tornado, allows 49% shooting against quality West starters.

Unless Farmar is going to develop an offense remotely close to Steve Nash (and there's no chance of that), he's going to have to start defending backup PG's before he tries to guard Deron, Nash, Paul and Baron for 40 minutes.

Chill dude, he's been in the league 2 years. You can't expect anything amazing from him yet. He has already improved a lot from when he was first drafted, and he still has a lot of time to get better.

As for when he starts, I think it will be 10-11, the year after Fish's contract expires and he will probably retire. Currently it's very possible Farmar is the better player, but I think Fish should be the starter because of the intangibles he brings, most notably his leadership.

Whenever Fisher decides to leave the Lakers, retired or to a different team (doubt that).

Farmar will only have a chance to be the established starter imo if they don't deal for or sign a starting 1 in the next two years. They can deal Odom for a 1 and that would shut Jordan out permanently. I'm with Real, develop the D or you won't start unless they have no choice.

He'll start when D-Fish retires. Unless he somehow improves by so much that it'd be stupid to not start him.

Only for 2 games which were at the end of the season anyway. Besides, it's Smush Parker. This guy shouldn't even be a starter.

I would LOVE for that starting point to be Hinrich (no KU bias, either).

He needs to improve on his man to man and pick n roll d, offensively he is very talented fast to the hoop, improved his shot and can create off the dribble. People were calling Crittenton the next Chris Paul and Deron Willams which is very delirious ,but as far as Jordan he needs to focus 100% on his d he can start even next year 28mpg and Fish 20mpg.

I think he will start when he proves his consistency... until then D-fish will be the starter... i believe that he will split the minutes ethically... but until he can consistently produce then he will not start... i believe it will be a year from now he will start probably consistently.
