Farmar Does Double Duty


Being a rookie in the NBA means many things. Hazing, carrying bags, and often long stretches on the pine. But for the Lakers' Jordan Farmar, today also signified a rarity in basketball - playing a doubleheader.

Farmar became the first person to play in an NBDL and NBA game in the same day. Playing for the Los Angeles D-Fenders, Farmar had 18 points, six assists, and three steals in a loss to the Anaheim Arsenal. Then, in the nightcap, Farmar cleaned up in garbage time, scoring four points in eight minutes.

The quick trip down to the D League hopefully will pay off for Farmar and the Lakers. He'd fallen further down Phil Jackson's depth chart in recent weeks, getting the dreaded DNP-CD in four of the last six games. With the Lakers being the only team in the Association to own their own D League franchise, sending Farmar down for the afternoon was an easy luxury to take advantage of. The only part stranger than this occurrence is the fact that Farmar is the first player the Lakers have sent down from their squad this season.

To his credit, Farmar handled the say in stride:

"They (the Lakers' brass) just want to see me get out there and be a leader and get some shots up," he said. "I got to the free throw line and got to see some go down (8-for-8).

"I took a couple of shots that felt really good and they went in and out. But the basic idea was just to get me out there playing and get comfortable again so that I can be an integral part of this team come playoff time, if they need me."


Farmar is right - come playoff time, the Lakers could certainly use him. There are so many quick guards in the Western Conference, and the Lakers have always struggled to guard them, particularly on the pick and roll. Having Farmar on the top of his game is a great insurance policy to have. There's only so far Smush Parker and Shammond Williams can take a team.
