Jordan Farmar was a member of two championship teams in four seasons during his first tour of duty with the Lakers albeit in a reserve role. He clashed with Phil Jackson at times and felt constrained by what he was expected to do within the Triangle offense.

Farmar always felt like he was capable of contributing so much more and he should get that opportunity under Mike D’Antoni this time around.

In fact the chance to play for the Lakers’ current head coach was one of the reasons Farmar chose to make his NBA return at this time.
