That is no slight to anyone else. Farmer has turned into a very good player.

No. That would be Pau.

But Farmar's playing like he is. Pau is kinda so-so.

Pau is the only other guy (suited up) I'd consider at this point. I like Henry, but Farmar is good.

Looks like he is at the moment.

I had family dinner event and game on in background 2nd half. Just noticed that in the 4th quarter for a pretty long time until the end Farmar was not in the game. So later I went to Game Day to see if any reason. Foul trouble….. injury? I see over the course of a couple pages there two people ask why Farmar's not in the game and no one answers. So what was the deal, was he in Dan's dog house or playing bad, hurt or what?? Why was Blake finishing the game? Box score shows zero fouls and only 16 minutes playing time.

He didn't play enough through 1-2.5 quarters. In the minutes he did play he was excellent.

He got in and had a rough stretch for 2 minutes. MDA gave him the quick yank. Nash/Blake can play horrid the entire game and not get that kind of treatment.

What's the point of trying to develop these young players when he gets sent to the bench for struggling a little bit. I would have preferred MDA left him out there, could have been a huge boost to confidence if he got through and made some plays.

^^ Great breakdown Doc. The ironic thing is that Farmar is actually the most MDA friendly player on the roster, IMO. He's been running MDA's uptempo to perfection for most of the pre-season and season. He is the only PG with the ability to still do it here. And he's been playing pretty much the best ball of anyone on the team. It didn't make any sense for him to have to wait until the end of the third quarter (3 minutes left) to play when Nash looked like a ghost out there in the third. This guy should be getting the most minutes of any PG. He doesn't have to close out the fourth like he did against the Clippers, but he needs to be in a lot earlier in the third.

He was horrible on both ends in the 2nd half ... He needs to stop throwing passes to his teammates feet level too

Yeah those passes were horrible. He was interviewed in the locker room during the post game showed and they mentioned his 4 turnovers and he said he didn't feel those were his turn overs, meaning those passes should have been caught. I didnt like that.

I don't like Farmar as much as many of you guys seem to.
He's not bad, and physically he's obviously a step up from Nash and Blake, but I just don't like watching him in half-court sets.
He doesn't read P&Rs well.. He doesn't seem to be comfortable when the pace is slowed down and defenses are set up.
I know Nash is banged up, can't play D and is shooting a very poor % for his standards (though shooting that'll correct itself with time IMO).. but I think he's still a better PG, in the pure sense.
Farmar may be a better choice when we play a faster pace, but if it's crunch time and we need clear, clean offensive play -- Farmar's not the guy.

Jordy has to work on the quality of his bounce passes off the pick and roll. He puts the ball at the feet of the bigs. Last game he had a couple TO's because of it and this game he did it too. I like the looks he is getting but he needs to clean up those passes.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

No let Nash be the figurehead, but Farmar should play well over 30 minutes a game.

Him STRUGGLING is better than Nash right now "healthy".
