Jordan Farmar: Half-Court Maestro


If you had to guess which Laker wins something like 80 percent of half-court shooting contests between various players and (almost always) assistant coach Brian Shaw, whom would you pick?

Kobe Bryant (good at everything)? Sasha Vujacic (never stops shooting)? Derek Fisher (experience, good touch)?

Wrong, wrong and wrong.

The answer is Jordan Farmar.

It’s gotten to the point that regular competitors Adam Morrison, Luke Walton, Vujacic and Shaw almost expect Farmar to win, and in Oklahoma City, we caught the point guard’s latest victory on camera.
