i think LA will still get Sam or Banks, juding from Mitch/Gray interview.

We'd have too many PGs though. Unless we trade one of them. Personally I'd like to have banks because of his defense, but I think now that we drafted Faramar, we should try and address our other needs with the MLE if possible. (Unless we're trading a PG).

His game is similar to a slower Earl Watson, but I think Farmar has more upside and a higher ceiling. Hes alot tougher than Watson, and played this last season on two sprained ankles. The guys a warrior, I hope he does well even if hes on the other side of the hallway.

I doubt we will actually see him demonstrating his full athletic ability. I never seen him dunk at all in his career. Anyone remember the highlight of Farmar on a break when Brandon Roy swats the **** out of him; should have gone for a dunk instead of a layup.

I've seen Farmar dunk plenty...even in half court offenses. He isn't a dunker but he can elevate when he needs to.

I'm a UCLA fan and Farmar was the key reason why the team went from a very average team to restoring the program back to respectability. I really think he and Afflalo needed another year, Afflalo pulled out of the draft, but Farmar will put the work in to make it. If he can work on his speed, this will turn out to be a fantastic pick for the Lakers.

I was hoping for Lowry, though. A good PG was what I felt the team needed. I love Smush but he disappeared towards the end of the season and there aren't a whole lot of options when it comes to 3-pt shooting. Farmar can be sortuv the BJ Armstrong, if you will. Technically a point, and will bring the ball up the court, but he isn't going to be the main ball handler in those half court situations. Make an open shot or use a little creativity and get someone else a shot. Play solid defense. If Farmar can do that, he'll help the Lakers out a bunch.
