When I was younger, I used to look like number 4 in that picture... big-ass glasses, etc. I took bath/shower at night then, so messed up hair and all. It's almost eerie looking at that picture.

we got a good player. It was a late pick, and we drafted a guy based on our needs. Hopefully he can pick up the tri and relegate smush to the bench. I like the idea of Parker coming of the bench. Guess this puts all the marcus banks rumors to rest.

Don't know about you but I don't know any African-American or Persian Jews. But damn he sure is.........

"Bruin fans call him the Jewish Jordan...Farmar’s parents divorced when he was young. His mother, Melinda Kolani, and stepfather, Yehuda Kolani, raised Farmar in a Jewish home, took him to Israel and sponsored his Temple Judea bar mitzvah. Farmar doesn’t consider himself observant, but identifies himself as part of the Jewish people."

Although his religion is irrelevant, you should google Jordan Farmer/ jewish. Im sure some results will appear that attest that.

I guess LA aren't getting Banks after all, unless they want to have 3 PGs on the team.

The Bucks got the best athelete in the draft, so I guess we also made the best pick of the draft? Are you mad the Lakers didn't take Noel?

I was reading Faramars draft profile and it seems like he's a luke walton type albeit with superior ball handling.
Slow unathletic, so-so socrer, but high IQ, creaive passer.
Not sure this bodes well for our defense, but between Lamar, Kobe, Faramr and Walton on the floor we could have one heck of a passing team....if they pass.

Jodan doesn't have ideal speed, but he's a good ball handler and a very scrappy defender. He's got heart. If you remember UCLA getting whooped in the NCAA title game, Farmar was the only Bruin who showed up that night.

He's got a decent shot but took too many bad shots. He'll improve in that area. He's got leadership skills and charisma, is a very good passer and will serve well enough bringing the ball up the court and passing it to Kobe :)

He probably trained his ass off in the offseason to reach that 42" vert. In all likelyhood, that's what made him stand out in this years draft, and selected in the 1st round.

Luke Walton wouldn't have a 42 inch vertical if he jumped 8 times and you added them all up. Farmar's not an elite athlete but he's better than average. Walton isn't even in the same building.
