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.
