The kid has always impressed me. If he were to declare this season where do you think he would end up going?

I think he'd go undrafted.

You can't be serious. Farmar's one of the best PGs in the country. He's a gamer, at worst he'd be a 2nd rounder in this 'weak' draft. I'd like to see him stay at UCLA one more year though.

Undrafted Farmar? This kid has talent, but his ankles have been beat up all year. I think he has the most potential to rise up the charts next year as a PG, but the PG class for 2007 draft is just brutal.

1. Kyle Lowry, Villanova
2. Ronald Steele, Alabama
3. Jordan Farmar, UCLA
4. Sean Singletary, Virginia (he's really good)
5. Dominic James, Marquette

No way he goes undrafted. I'd say late first round, early second at the latest.

I'm kind of skeptical about how good he will be in the NBA. I'm thinking a solid backup point gaurd. I can't say that I've seen more than a few of his games, but from what I've seen he only seems like an average athlete, and I havn't seen anything from to indicate that he's anything special in terms of court vision and "pure point gaurd" skills.

Yeah I heard he was Spanish. Farmar doesn't sound too Spanish though...doesn't really sound like too much of anything. But who knows, it could come from his moms side.

Like Puerto Rican? well anyways remember Hispanics are just made up of black/white/asian, and isn't a race of their own.
lol Hispanics are part asian? That's news to me.

Farmar is going to be a very good NBA PG. He's a gamer, and he could play defense.

Farmar would not crack the Top 20. Good college player, but just has nothing that stands out to make a him a high pick or a good NBA player. He's a poor mans Earl Watson.

He's small(combo of height and bulk), he's only an average athlete, decent quickness, has a very inconsistent J, good vision and passing ability, is average defensively(just cuz UCLA played good D does not mean everyone did; Farmar is nothing special on defense), and is tough.

He might make a solid backup point, but thats about it.

Too bad there isn't one thing he does on the court that gives any validity to that claim.

For the record, I like Afflalo and Mbah a Moute a lot. So my dislike for Farmar has nothing to do with where he goes to school. It has everything to do with him doing nothing that projects as an NBA standout at the next level.

Why do you like Affalo? The only thing Affalo will be is a Greg Buckner defensive PG, because his jumpshot has a hitch in it that makes him shoot it on the way down and he doesn't possess outstanding skills off the bounce.

How can someone like Affalo more than Farmar is beyond me.
