Pregame with Jordan Farmar

NEWARK, N.J. — Jordan Farmar smiled broadly when a group of Lakers beat writers entered the New Jersey Nets’ locker room looking for an update this morning on his new life and career. Farmar left the Lakers last summer to sign a three-season, $12-million contract with the Nets in the hope of landing a greater role. Farmar said it’s all working out just fine. He misses his old teammates and he can’t wait to get his hands on his second championship ring, which will happen when the Nets visit Staples Center next month. Here’s more from the former UCLA and Taft of Woodland Hills standout:

“Life is good. I have a new baby girl (Phoenix). She’s amazing. She keeps me rolling every day. I’m just working, coming in here every day trying to get better and help this organization grow. For me personally, I’ve been able to play basketball in a little different light and do some more things on the floor, have the basketball in my hands and run the team. It’s been a growing experience for me, a learning experience. That was definitely the plan. Those guys are family in there. We’ve been through wars together. I wish them nothing but the best except when we’re going head up against each other.”
