Anyone else see the irony in our PG situation?
When we had Farmar we all complained about him.
We were happy when we got rid of Farmar and replaced him with Blake.
We got tired of Blake and was happy to get Nash.
After last season, a lot of people complained about Nash and wanted him gone.
And now...all three of them are playing together
Farmar and Phil always had a somewhat awkward relationship. Phil wanted Farmar to follow the triangle, while Farmar's instincts were more of a traditional PG.
So Farmar was a misfit on offense and his so-so defense didn't help either so he'd be up and down from night to night. But his "up" nights were way better than anything Blake gave us.
In D'Antoni's system, Farmar can fit in on offense more easily despite his so-so defense, so he'll hopefully have more good nights than bad.
Blake is a somewhat different case due to all the injuries he's had. Blake also had to go through 3 different coaching/system changes during his 3 year tenure here, something Farmar didn't have to deal with. Blake seemed to find a groove last season despite going through another coaching/system change and missing half the season. Whether that had to do with D'Antoni's system or Blake just becoming more comfortable in LA, I'm really not sure. Whatever it is, he looks less awkward on the court than he was his first 2 seasons here.
Nash is old and he needs help in the backcourt to keep his minutes down. That's the main complaint against him. Hopefully, with Blake and Farmar playing decently under D'Antoni, we can cut his minutes during the regular season so he can be fresh for the postseason.
