Default Are there Jewish NBA players?

I'm sure there are, but I'd be hardpressed to actually name one.

That nickname is someone else's, not Farmar's. It belongs to a guy that never went to the NBA

farmar is jewish? he would be the first jewish player in many years.

after brown retired there were no more jewish head coaches.

jewish men do own about 50% of the teams however. old jewish guys own every team in the eastern central division i think. reinsdorf, gilbert, davidson, simon, and kohl are all jewish.
