Lakers News: Jordan Farmar Excited To Play In D’Antoni’s System

farmarOf all of the Lakers offseason additions, arguably the most welcome one has been the return of point guard Jordan Farmar. Farmar was a part of the back-to-back championship teams in 2009 and 2010 and his athleticism and defense are things the Lakers were sorely lacking last season.

Farmar left a lot of money on the table overseas in order to return to the Lakers this season. And besides wanting to be home near friends and family, Farmar revealed that playing in Coach D’Antoni’s system was also a big reason in him returning to the Lakers, as he told KTLA this morning:

Just a good opportunity, basketball, and life wise. For me to be home in front of my friends and family is very important right now. And Coach D’Antoni’s system is very conducive to the way I play basketball. So I felt it was a great opportunity to me and I’m excited to get started.

Farmar, along with guys like Nick Young, Wesley Johnson, and Jordan Hill will give the Lakers a speed element they were sorely lacking last season. Coach D’Antoni will obviously have to adjust his system some due to his roster, but a second unit led by those guys would be able to run other teams off the floor.

Everyone is happy to see Farmar return, and if he can fit in to the system they way he’s expected to, he will elevate a poor bench unit for the Lakers. Check out the video below.
