Jordan Farmar had to leave, had to distance himself from Los Angeles and the Lakers, before he could realize he belongs here and that nothing would feel as good to him as wearing purple and gold.
Playing for (Mike) D’Antoni, Farmar said, was a motivating factor to give up the money he would have gotten in Turkey.
“I had to just go on and give myself an opportunity, because I think I have a great opportunity for me to contribute a lot and just be kind of what they’re looking for,” he said.
“But this time around I felt this is an amazing fit, first and foremost, coming back home and playing for Coach D’Antoni right now and bringing whatever I can bring to the table and help the team.”
