He'll start some games this year to give fish some rest

He must have a quality jump to be able to start. I hope he does get better.

I think he's going to be a surprise this coming season and play great but won't be a starter until mid-2010.

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.

and the playoffs :D.

I think it's gonna be similar to the USA team this year, where he'll start to get the bulk of the minutes at PG but still come off the bench, like is happening w/ Kidd and CP3.

There is no question Farmar will be a quality player in the league but I don't think he'll be an all star. I see him as a marginal starter but more or like in the mold of Bobby Jackson in his Sacramento days.

All star or not, do you see him as our starting point guard in our long term future?

Right now, but who knows what can happen the next couple years. We could acquire some1 better or he could leave for a bigger contract. He still has a lot of room to improve to prove he can be a starting PG.

He needs to improve his decision making and outside shot. He needs to improve his defense.

For some reason, Jordan thinks he's the next Kobe. He wants the greenlight to do whatever he wants on the court. He hasn't earned that yet, nor do I think he has that type of game.

He will start for some team and probably have Mo Williams upside but unless he comes in shooting a high percentage from 3 and improve on defense, I'd be open to shipping him out.



Impeachment: Imminent

I think he is until further notice. He's only in his 3rd year and he's shown a lot of promise. I'm not ready to give up on him yet. He and Bynum could make for a potent combo if they reach their full potential.

I merged the two Farmar threads because both threads are about Jordan being our future PG/starter PG.

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

The Lakers aren't trading for Hinrich. :beers:
