Lakers News: Jordan Farmar Discusses Playing With Nick Young

hi-res-101246171_crop_northThe last time Jordan Farmar wore a Laker uniform was Game Seven of the 2010 NBA Finals against the Celtics. Unfortunately for the Lakers, they have not been able to return to championship form since Farmar left, and now he is back after spending time in New Jersey and overseas.

The Lakers also signed Nick Young this offseason, who is a streaky shooting guard that can put some points on the board. Farmar and Young will be teammates for the first time in the NBA, but the two have known each other since high school.

Farmar played his high school ball at Taft High School, and Young went to Cleveland High, where they both led their teams to epic battles against one another. That is where their competition against each other really began, before they were under the bright lights of college and the NBA.

Farmar decided to attend UCLA, while Young chose USC. Young wanted to compete with Farmar, which is why he chose the Trojans. Now, Farmar and Young will play for their favorite team growing up, and they are very excited for the opportunity and the upcoming season.

In an interview with Bleacher Report, Farmar discusses his excitement for this upcoming season and playing alongside Nick Young:

“We played against each other throughout high school and college and the NBA, so we’re excited to be on the same team this year. Both of us playing here for the Lakers, the team that we grew up watching and cheering for, it’ll be a lot of fun.”

Do not think it was a coincidence that both players ended up with the Lakers as Farmar explains that they discussed the possibility of playing for the Lakers together:

“I saw him when I came in and signed. He was in there working out, and I told him how great of a place it is, how great of an opportunity it will be. He agreed and shortly after, he was on the team with us.”

Both Farmar and Young took significantly less money to come and play for their hometown team, but the opportunity for the once rivals to join forces and help the Lakers return to prominence was too tempting for each to pass up.

    Nick Young is such a goofy player lol.He was famous for goofing around when the Washington Wizards were called the Washington Generals by several fans a few years back,he was know for joking around and doing silly stupid stuff during blowout losses and he is a big joker he has never been a serious player.

    Nick Young is Just a happy go lucky fun loving dude.Jordan Farmar is a great guy and he was sorely missed by me,i am very happy he is back with the Lakers and it’s great to see him so mature and ready to help out the team.

    MDA is the best coach possible for Jordan Farmar,he caters to point guards.Maybe Jordan-Sanity will surpass Lin-Sanity?Welcome back Mr.Jordan Farmar.Go Lakers Go!

      The Rock,

      Jordan-Sanity will never even come close to Lin-Sanity.Lin-Sanity was created to tap into the void left when Ming retired. There is a big market over seas the NBA wants to tap into and Lin is hopefully in better position to tap it with the presence of D12 and James Harden.

      I see a lot of potential in Nick Young.Hopefully playing along side Kobe Bryant,Young will catch the fire and desire of a champion.I am wishing Farmar all the best because some one will need to give Nash a rest especially if we make the playoffs.A 82 game season will definitely tax Nash’s body if he has to play at a high level for too many minutes.

      I am not convinced either Nash or Farmar are the answer for the PG position in the long term. But this is a golden opportunity for Farmar to prove he is worthy.Hopefully Nash can cash in on a championship before he retires.

        I think you selling Farmar way to short, he’s a good shooter (in the paint or out by the 3pt.), He’s a very good ball handler and a very good passer and he’s more than adequate defender and now that he has more experience under his belt, I bet that he will end up backing up Nash or possibly taking over for Nash, all respects for Nash but 40 yrs is not equal to 26 yrs.
