POLL: Nick Young Is Expected To Have A Better Season Than Jordan Farmar

Nick YoungOne of the Lakers biggest concerns these last few seasons has been the collective age of the roster. The core of last season’s team, outside of Dwight Howard, was a collection of guys closer to the end than the beginning of their respective careers. While every team should have a collection of veterans to steer the young guys in the right direction, it seemed that the Lakers were only throwing out veterans on the floor save for Jordan Hill and Earl Clark — and the occasional Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris collective.

However, this offseason the Lakers made it a point to add some youth to the core of their team. They did it both literally (Nick Young) and figuratively (Jordan Farmar, Wesley Johnson and rookies). Young and Farmar are both native to Los Angeles and, of the younger guys, have the highest potential to do some good things for the Lakers this season.

This morning, we asked who you thought would have the biggest impact on the Lakers this season, and you responded with a resounding nod to Young. The product out of USC has had an up-and-down career and has show the ability to shoot his team in (and out) of games. Farmar is a former Laker who struggled within the confines of Phil Jackson’s free willing system. Considering that he’ll be much more comfortable running a more free willing pick-and-roll offense with Mike D’Antoni at the helm, it was expected that these results would be a bit closer, but Young took the vote at a 90/10 clip.

    Disagree, Farmar’s experience (championship) with the team will help during those key moments though Young’s athleticism will aid on both sides too, so IMO 50/50. Although, NY will likely get more minutes on the court than Farmar given the position of play.

      Jim213,
      I usually agree with a lot of what you post,but I’m not to sure what to expect from Farmar?
      Do I think Farmar is better than Blake?Yes….Is he younger and healthier than Nash?Yes…
      But at the end of the day the Lakers may still will need a quality young PG for Nash to groom.
      I am not sold on it being Farmar,but he can let his play and opportunity speak for itself.I will support any Laker who gives massive effort and production.Nash will most likely need a quality PG to share some minutes with…. someone better than Blake.I hope Farmar pans out because if so he could be the difference in the Lakers being a championship threat or not.
      Nick Young is a star in the making! Farmar is not even close to as gifted and athlete.
      I am expecting a lot more out of Young than I am Farmar,but I wish them and all Lakers the best!

        Ain’t saying that he will be the future PG, just that I’d expect him to play an important role this coming season. Nash, KB24, know they have to play less minutes thus bringing in someone with the experience that Farmar (aside of his growth) will benefit the team during challenging/crucial moments.

        Especially since he’s more focused on toughening up on defense for this year which many analysts also mention is one of Young’s weaknesses. Although, thinking about it now K Rambis will play a critical role too being that he’ll need to come up with a solid scheme in which everyone can focus and adapt to decrease the 2nd chance opportunities against the competition.

        I may add, Farmar have better decisions making, having been in a Championships team and had better exposure.

    i think it’s best to start wes johnson at the 3 and then bring young off the bench for instant offense. i’m not sure how good the lakers will be at stopping teams, but they will definitely put up some points.
