Collison and Robinson not likely for that cheap.

Yup. Worst attitude of any PG we've had since Smush. He left here to go start and he couldn't find a starting job anywhere, so he had to go be a backup on a worse team in NJ. The discrepancy between his talent level and how good he thinks he is, is continents apart. There's a reason I called Dumbo "Ego Ears." He took shots he had no business taking, thinking they were his to take. He'd get into it with the coaches when they attempted to coach him and get on to him. He had a sour attitude and wasn't a team player. And his defense was downright embarrassing. I'd rather have Nash defensively than Farmar.

I think Farmar sees an opportunity to where he could be the starting PG here in a couple of years...

I would absolutely take him for the minimum, there aren't a lot of better PG's out there for the minimum. When he was here he showed he can run the fast break, he can get to the hoop and make layups, he's got speed, and he actually showed he can hit big shots and isn't afraid of big moments. For example, he was one of our better players at hitting buzzer beaters, even from deep. I don't remember his defense being that bad either, I remember a few times he gave Nash a really hard time, blocked his shot and stuff.

He's not a bad defensive player, but Blake is better.

My problem is his attitude. He always wanted a bigger role on the Lakers and he seemed to have an entitled attitude as if he deserved it. I can't stand when a player acts like they're better than they really are.


Blake WAS better, we don't know how Farmar is now, guess a workout or camp invite might help us find out. Also, again, he's older, maybe a bigger role isn't as important to him anymore as being in the league at all and being in LA (home).

I doubt his defense has gotten better after being on a bad NJ team, and being out of the NBA the past few years. If anything I'd expect it to be worse after not having to play against NBA talent night in and night out.

And regarding his attitude, the best Basketball coach in the NBA and playing alongside the best player in the NBA couldn't get his ego and entitled attitude in hand, I don't have any confidence Pringles could do better.

All these hopes of improved defense and attitude, is asking Farmar to show a level of self improvement, soul searching, and dedication I never saw from him in the 4 years he was here. I don't see why any of us should expect this from him when he's never shown it before.

Not on the defensive side he's not.

Hope you are kidding........


He's not kidding. Morris plays average to above average defense. Farmar's strengths are his quickness, hops/finishing and 3 pt range. Simply put, gets abused on the defensive end. At best he's a 6th man/speedy-change-of-pace guard... he doesn't have the physique to handle the rigors of a starting gig.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Shouldn't that be an indication having a bigger role isn't necessarily a top priority anymore?


That's kinda what I was saying as well. No guarantee that Farmar has changed, but if he is interested in coming here knowing that Nash is here and Blake is here, maybe concern for a big role isn't as important anymore. My mentioning him playing overseas was more about how that can sometimes make players mature as they have to grow up and take care of themselves over there, and it might make them appreciate an opportunity back in the NBA more.

I'd take Farmar. I like Blake, but I'd rather go with Jordie

I'm okay with Farmar but I'd rather we go after SG/SF's.

I'm actually one of the few members on here who doesn't mind Blake at all as our backup PG

Farmar is likely more valuable to the Lakers with no Phil/Triangle and Mike D's up tempo system.

I think Farmar would likely replace Morris, not Blake anyway. Blake is too much money.

Farmar would do a good job of a) pushing that position to perform better and b) he'd be a decent option in case we dump Blake's expiring contract.

We cannot be involved in sign and trades that BRING IN signed players. We can only be involved in sign and trades with players LEAVING Los Angeles.

If we traded Blake it'd likely be for a pick or a TPE or something. Some move to clear cap space.

Farmar is a much better fit for our bench than Blake. In a perfect world we could trade Nash & start Blake but in either case, Farmar's energy & chucking is something our bench needs. Hope he's willing to take the minimum.
