In a perfect world you pick Steve Blake or Steve Nash? What are you talking about man?
In a perfect world Blake would be 7 years younger and more durable. He's got good size for a PG and makes for a decent defender, but he's older and therefore slower than he was (he was never fast) and more injury prone.
The best fit for our bench is still Blake who has better natural PG skills than Farmar. Farmar is a SG/PG type and I put those two in the correct order. Blake is a PG/PG/sg type and I put those in the right cases. Blake is a better fit, but I don't like the idea of having two older guys at the fastest position in the NBA.
Farmar would help alleviate some of that pressure.
