LA Lakers got a steal in JORDAN FRAMAR at #27
42 in vertical leap?


Lakers's got a great, great, great pick!!

he's the least athletic player with a 42 inch vertical leap ever. Basically, you could never tell by watching him play. He's not someone like Diaz who is all over the airways shooting over people, dunking over people, etc. He's a floorbound player with decent speed who likely spent his entire offseason up to this point doing plyometrics and weight lifting to get his combine numbers up high enough to bump him from early 2nd to late 1st (huge difference in contracts between the 2) and was successful

:Farmar's been injured all year. At the combine he had a 42 in leap.

Even Vince Carter doesn't jump that high, or it's as high as VC.

Good Pick LA!

I think they should have drafted James White instead of him.

face it. no matter if LAL had picked Jordan Farmar or the guy next to me, you would still have made this topic.

So 42 inch = Great player? Looks like Sasha found his friend.

Jordan Farmer could help us and it was the 26th pick not 27th.

TeamKobeBryant24 06-28-2006 11:32 PM

Jordan's a Jordan fan, that's how he got his name.

It was meant to be.

Jordan's old bball coach ain't that bad looking :rolleyes:
But in all seriousness Farmar is not that great and we should have taken either White, Ager or Rodriguez. Farmar better work on his shot rather than his vertical b/c thats what he needs to do to get any playing time with Phillip Jackson. Hopefully he'll learn to cut down on the mental mistakes in the D-league when he gets dropped there. At least we are getting Marcus Banks :confusedshrug:

Farmar was a great pick and it has little to do with any 42 inch vert that he supposedly has. I have been hoping the Lakers would get him since March.

the ucla faithful are goin crazy rightnow. well get to see farmar develope in to probly one of the greatest lakers of all time.

Lakers just solidified the Middle Eastern fanbase of S. Cali, for 10 years.

...and got a talented, athletic player to boot.:pimp:

A+ for the Lakers.:applause:
