Daily Link: Some More on Jordan Farmar

Ben Couch has been doing good work in the off-season profiling some of the Nets newest coaches and acquisitions. Most recently, he spoke with Jordan Farmar, the assumed backup PG. Farmar talks about his background in Los Angeles, his family and his thoughts on moving to the East Coast.

They just talk about the weather. But I’m here (in the gym) all the time, and it’s always the same temperature. (Laughs.) I’ll figure it out. I’m not too worried about it. My friends and family back home understand that I’ve got to do what I have to do. This is a short career, and in the scheme of things, if it’s 15 years, it’s still 15 years out of a 70-year life – hopefully more, but we’ll see, ha. It’s still a short period. You sacrifice this to set your family up for life, hopefully. I worked really hard to get to this stage, and this is a great opportunity for me, so everybody is really supportive and cool with it.
