I personally don't care if we have a backup PG that can run this team if CP goes down because if CP goes down in the playoffs it won't really matter who the PG is, we're not going to advance. I'd much rather have a PG who's suited for the backup spot perfectly and is a good role player for a championship team. That's what we need, not a PG who can dominate in the regular season if our Point....

^^^ I agree with CJ. CP3's health is anything but reliable and to be honest Farmar is more of a shooter than a passer and great ball handler. That's part of what got him out of the league and his defense is very mediocre. I just don't understand why we were so anxious to lock him down when there probably wasn't one other team seriously looking at him. He probably should have been signed for the min. Especially....

Jordan Farmar has a very high basketball IQ. Plus he's played on a championship contending team he is a great addition to this team DC is a better player but Farmar will not hurt you. I know a few diehard laker fans and they all talk about how underrated he is. Good signing in my opinion plus to add the icing on the cake he took a hometown discount

Yeah, he did. I'm sure Turkey TV had non-stop coverage on their sports channel with headers reading...."I'm coming home" like Lebron had here too. Turning down 7 million overseas is like a Arena football QB turning that down that type of money to come play for the texans as a backup. Doesn't mean anything cause it's not the Pros.

Why are we making it seem like Collison was amazing in the playoffs? He shot terribly from 3PT and under 40% FG, but he did draw fouls. Everyone likes to look at SA, but they are quite special, and we should look at them correctly. When Parker is out, Ginobili and Diaw are high level facilitators and handle the load, not their PG's. Patty Mills averaged 3.5 assists/36 last season, 3.4 assists/36 in the playoffs. They used him primarily as a....

I think Farmar will be just fine as CP3's backup. He is a better three point shooter too. I loved Collison last year, but the amount that the Kings are paying him is just ridiculous.
In today's NBA, what their paying him for his production/Wins Produced is not ridiculous. What their paying for Melo or Bosh is ridiculous. ....

there are a lot of you hyping up a player that has been a career backup who was out of the league already with basically no interest from the NBA as an upgrade, lateral move, better for the team than Collision was.
You're overhyping a player who has basically been a scrub his entire career except for the years he was teammates with CP3. Dallas couldn't wait to get rid of Collison. There's a reason we got him....

The problem is that it is one game. Even scrubs, and Collison isn't a scrub can have high impact in one game in a critical moment in the playoffs. We can't really hold on to that if a guy is going to play below his averages in the other games though, it's just a bad way of looking at impact. If the argument is that "well in one game, Collison could get hot and help the team to a win", is....

No, the problem isn't that is just one game. It was a vital game where he took over in the last minutes to seal a victory when none of our starters could generate some offense. Not just any scrub can do that and I'm a little surprised you would say that and not expect to be called on it. Farmar played in the triangle offense where even a guy like Fished thrived. Why you say? Well simply put, the triangle takes....

Is there such a thing as a non vital game in the playoffs? Are you sure any scrub can't do that? I don't know man, I don't know, even scrubs have their days. Will Barton is young, but as of now he's a scrub and in Portland's vital game, the one they needed to not get swept, it was his 17 pts on 13 FG off the bench that helped them. The guy averaged 4/2/1 and played 9.4 mpg in 41....

It's not the same, true and pressure levels are different, sure, but really Collison probably just went out to play basketball and his plays were successful and his shots went in, and had a great quarter, it's not some special thing that he is more capable at achieving than the next player, it doesn't up his value, but it is certainly a good moment in his career. Thabo is an offensive scrub, but total scrubs are pretty inconsequential on both ends,....
