Did you guys know that Farmar is a 27/7/7 player in the Euroleague after 3 games (yes, those numbers are correct)? He's an early MVP candidate, obviously.

Farmar plays for Anadolu Efes (Turkey) and he is starting this season, together with his old pal Sasha "The Machine" Vujacic, who plays the SF position. Sasha numbers are around 14/3/1.5 IIRC.

It seems Farmar has all the talent to play in the Euroleague. He is super fast, can jump high, and not many people can defend him. Also, his NBA-style long 2 is actually a three-point shot in Europe, so he is shooting over 72% (!) for 3 so far. :man10: He's hit 8 threes in 3 games already. 30 minutes per game on average.

I don't think he can keep this up, obviously... but still. It's damn impressive.

Can we trade Blake and Duhon for both of them?.....

Interesting that they were the scourge of CL for years..... yet they are both better than just about anyone we have in the backcourt on our current bench..... Ugh...

They are. I'd take both of them to play the 1 and 2 off the bench. Farmar has finally learned how to play under control. They are certainly better then Blake, Duhon and Morris.

Farmar/Meeks/Vujacic/Ebanks/Jamison/Hill/Sacre is an excellent bench.

^^I don't know Meeks yet.... he's played about 40 minutes so far.... the jury is still out on him.

I'll take Jordan back now. It was never a question of talent, just maturity and fit.

Sasha I'll take a big old pass on. He's not better than Meeks defensively, they might be equal threats from outside, but Sasha's outside shot for us his last couple years was extremely spotty. He was also pretty bad at attacking the basket.

Jordan, for sure, the Lakers would like back. Heck, if we could call him up and offer him the mini-MLE next season I think that'd be nice.

Farmar wasn't a legit PG when he was here, typically decided to be like Kobe and ditch the triangle when he fellt like it and that irked Phil and the coaching staff. However, he could bring the ball up the court against pressure D (something Blake sometimes can't handle) and he could actually penetrate against the defense and kick it out. Another thing that Blake cannot do. And he was a much more consistent outside shooter than Blake. And with 2 years in New Jersey, he's even more mature than he was when he was here.

Phil is obviously a perfectionist and has a borderline fetish when it comes to preferring vets, but frankly he was way too hard on Farmar, which IMO is why he left.

Well now that Farmar has seen that he can't find a starting gig anywhere in the NBA, he should just come back and assume his role of the bench PG. :man10:

Farmar definitely isn't a starter in this league, but if he plays like an MVP in the Euroleague, he could command some Jason Terry 6th man salary. Somewhere between 5 and 7 million.

Agreed.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Pretty much, our chuck happy championship back court of Sasha, Farmar and Brown are all NBA compared to our current bench back court.
