Jordan Farmar implies he would have made three-pointer Steve Blake missed

During his four-year tenure with the Lakers, Jordan Farmar was used sparingly. He never played more than 20 minutes per game and never averaged more than 10 points in a season. Since signing with the Nets, his minutes and production have increased a bit. Per usual, the Nets are sitting at home watching this year’s playoffs. Farmar’s former team is in trouble against the Thunder as they trail the series 0-2 after Wednesday night’s loss — a loss which Jordan feels he could have helped prevent.

The three-pointer Farmar was referring to is the one Steve Blake missed with 5.2 seconds remaining in the game. The Lakers grabbed the offensive rebound and Kobe scored from inside the arc, but it turned out to be a fairly big miss as L.A. lost by only two. Would Farmar have made the shot? We’ll never know. What we do know is trolling about it on Twitter makes you sound lame.

    i think he is referring to Fisher, not himself.

    Blake made five big ones in game 7 against Denver.  He had a good look and missed this time.  Nobody shoots 100% from the free throw line, let alone three point territory.  There is no guarantee that anybody would have made it.  Lame quote from Farmar, a guy who kinows better and is better than that.

    I thought of that too, but if you look at his Twitter account the very next tweet he retweeted someone who said “Don’t matta you’ll do it in Brooklym next year.” I just didn’t think he would have retweeted that right away if the tweet wasn’t referring to himself. Could be wrong tho…

    It is? Man, they do a really good job of making it look legit. The fake account even later tweeted that the fake tweet was a joke. Thats bizarre that a fake account would tweet that they were joking about a fake tweet. But you’re probably right….
