Bucks' Brandon Jennings has Twitter feud with Jordan Farmar impostor

Milwaukee Bucks rookie guard Brandon Jennings thought his barbs via Twitter with Lakers backup guard Jordan Farmar had reached ridiculous heights.

Jennings posted to a friend on his Twitter page ”hit my phone I’ll tell you the real on that Farmar thing." He threw these haymakers:

--“Jennings (YUNGBUCK3) tweeted: “nah i was just telling the homie how thirsty you are. That’s all. But I’m not going to make this a big thing.”

--Jennings: “but I’m not going to beef with you. See you should be worried about your spot. Shannon Brown??? That’s all imma say.”"

Too bad Jennings overplayed his hand. Mike Trudell of Lakers.com recently confirmed with Farmar that the Twitter account in his name was a fake, and the JFarmar1 screen name has since been suspended. Though the responses may very well be coming from a crazed fan, Farmar's fake tweets would've made for a great feud.

--JFarmar1 tweeted: “You started with the smack talking, and I ended it with the 2 threes. We even? Cool.” Farmar then threw this subtle jab at Jennings: “On a side note, Tyreke Evans really doing his thing. My pick for Rookie of the Year, no doubt. No one comes close.”

As far as their on-court play, Farmar said the chippiness during the Lakers' 95-77 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks were rooted in their local connections. Farmar (a Woodland Hills Taft product) had 17 points on five of eight shooting while Jennings (a Dominguez High standout) scored 11 points but on a four of 17 clip.

"We were getting a little fired up and going back and forth," Farmar said after the game. "It was all competitive nature. It was a fun competition. He's been playing great basketball and has come a long way. He gets to run a team."

"He's doing a good job. I'm just trying to do my job here and help us win championships."

While we're on the topic of Jennings, he is the first player to skip college, play professionally in Europe and then land in the NBA. Lakers Coach Phil Jackson had a humorous take on whether more players will follow suit.

Skip high school? I knew he was young, but I didn't realize he was that young!!

Ginocimoli,

You must be new in the blog to skip the flavor of this site. The rings and Mamba24 roll call make this blog rock. It may be lengthy and somewhat repetitious but it is lifeblood of this community. Without their posts, there is no character, no passion and it is all opinion without conviction.

BTW, just my opinion you're free to stay or opt out but try to consider these amenities that are not found in any blog.

Poor Brandon Jennings....

mamba24, I'm on that MM bandwagon. The core of what he's done has been great and seamless.

exhelodrvr - don't be too amazed. It was a mistake that I just fixed. Thanks for all the love guys! Also, just so I'm on record with this - The same way I think it's critical for me to put my name at the bottom and at the credits after each video, I think it's good for all you guys to have a signature if you choose to have one. It's part of your identity, you know?

>>> He is proven 23 ppg and 11 rpg on a very weak team.
Wake up, Edwin. Put Bosh on the floor with Pau and Lamar and he will NOT average anywhere near those numbers. Conversely, put Drew on a terrible weak team like Toronto and he would average at least at much as Bosh. That is not to mention that Bosh is susceptible to the same criticism as Pau for being a finesse rather than power player. The Lakers will be a softer team physically and a weaker team defensively with the trade. And that is NOT just my opinion.
-
As for what happens if the Lakers actually traded Drew, it would not change my loyalty or purple and gold fandom. I would be disappointed but I would never root for another NBA team. Once a Lakers fan, always a Lakers fan as far as I am concerned. And my favorite Laker player is and has always been Kobe Bryant.
Anyway, the trade is a stupid idea created just to get attention and web hits. It has not real legs except in the fantasy team imaginations of the blogs Bynum Bashers. Meanwhile, the Beast is emerging.

Tom

Laker Tom,

I see you've finally thrown in the towel on all of your Bynum predictions (all-star team, 1st or 2nd option on offense, closing out games over Lamar, best center after Dwight, etc.) and now you have conceded that the Beast will not emerge until next year?...didn't you say the same thing last year, and the year before that?

I was about to leave after previous post answer in the thread, but then this hilarious Twitter feud forced me to write one more (being me a Twitter addicted...).

Two words for too fired up Jennings , and they're nor Epic Fail nor Calm Down.
Two words: Verified Account.
Brandon, Brandon... Even kids way younger than you know Twitter is plagued with fakers more than any other place... Ouch.

Talented and passioned kid with a bit of strategy issue. Dumb move Brandon. But hilarious as well.

Guess he'll live and learn. Looks like Jordy isn't going to' welcome him in case of a Lakers approach to' him...

Have a great night. Now I guess I can rest and start sliding in bed, waiting for my 2:30 am wake up call ;)

MAMBA24 - Please put me on the MM bandwagon. Does he have an e-mail account like the K-Bros did? Because I have my CV/Resume all polished and ready to go. :-)

And you know I gotta keep people honest here!

Mamba24,
Please add me to the MM band wagon. Thanks.

caliphilosopher - I got my email address under each post now. Looking forward to reading this resume LOL. I don't think the domain name is avaialable...

One good thing about the Bynum/Bosh rumors is we got a free litmus test of Bynum's worth around the league. Most writers seem to think the Lakers are crazy to trade Bynum for Bosh, even with Bosh's superior numbers.


So if Bosh isn't good enough for Bynum, who is? Hmmm. The mad general manager on my shoulder poistulates with joy. Chris Paul? Deron Williams?


Wes

Lets get these bench players doing this on the road vs a few tougher opponents before we sing their praises.

Good Afternoon Charles...Good Afternoon Everyone...

twitter--the name says it all...

anyway as far as trades this season, I still think that the Lakers priority should be in improveing their role players...Nathaniel had a great trade proposal in one of the last threads---Mitch is probably looking into something like that...superstar trades are not really what this teams needs---it needs some slight upgrades to the bench and role players--(and yes of course we need that point guard position solidified)...

and as Rick F. pointed out we still have roster spot 14 and 15 to pick someone up on the cheap---could be a pleasant surprise...

and the other question---can this team, as it is, win it all? the answer in my not always so humble opinion is a resounding YES !!!

of course that involves players stepping up, developing consistency, team focus, healing injuries and lack of further injuries, but our team is very very good and is indeed capable of winning it all again...

and just as of course, Mitch should be (and no doubt always is) looking to improve the team, even slightly, to help reach the ultimate goal, as it were...

Tejas...time to dig deep my friends...

"because the sky is blue, it turns me on"

"of course it's a good idea!"

AS ALWAYS, AS EVER, YET ANOTHER GREAT DAY (AND CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON) TO BE A LAKER FAN !!!

GO LAKERS !!!

BynumTom,

"The Lakers will be a softer team physically and a weaker team defensively with the trade. And that is NOT just my opinion."

You've stated that Bynum will make the all-star team and that he would be the second option AHEAD of Pau this season. Was that "NOT just your opinion" or were those facts?

Chris Bosh's lateral movement for a PF is off the charts. With Bosh, our pick and roll defense will rival Boston's. Throw in Bosh's basketball IQ and veteran leadership with Kobe's and Pau's, and this defense will be one cohesive working unit in no time. Another advantage with Bosh is he will help with our poor transition defense and shore up one of the team's biggest weaknesses - lack of speed in the starting unit. Bosh will never block shots like Bynum, but he will help in ALL other facets of the defense. Net result is a huge positive for our defense.

Bosh's outside shooting would also be an ideal fit with Pau playing closer to the basket. We all know that Pau is not only an elite PF, but an elite C as well. Bosh's outside shooting would help the spacing in the post, not only for Pau, but also for Artest and Kobe. It's becoming pretty clear that Bynum is lazy and ineffective when he is on the court with Pau, and as a result, we are not maximizing Bynum's full skill set. Bosh will have no such problems.

We can argue the finer points of Bynum and Bosh all day long, but at the end of the day, it comes down to "who will give us the best chance at winning the next 3-4 championships?" The answer is Bosh, and it's not even close.

Brandon Jennings- way too wound up about something he should have checked out first- unless he was just having fun with the whole thing. Besides, it's Twitter for crying out loud! Who can really care? Jon K is right, it is evil. Oh yeah, and he is right about something else: the Lakers DO play for rings.

Interested to see if Farmar and my guy Shannon (glad he re-signed with us) can keep it going after the Bucks game. I really like the tempo when they are in the backcourt together.

Bosh is a great player, but as intriguing as it would be to see him with the Lakers, not the right fit. We have that guy Gasol, who is sort of ok at that position.

Big win for LA tonight. Bynum shuts down Duncan (I hope).

Potential lineups with Bosh:

SIZE LINEUP (even without Bynum, this team will have plenty of size and length):
PG-Kobe
SG-Artest
SF-Lamar
PF-Bosh
C-Pau

SPEED LINEUP (I dare Pheonix to try to run against this lineup):
PG-Farmar
SG-Shannon
SF-Kobe
PF-Lamar
C-Bosh

Long Time Laker Fan, where are you? miss your insightful posts man

Banner Holder, where have you been as well? miss the inspiration, seemingly...

GO LAKERS !!!

Kickin it at work on lunch listening to Phish cover Starship Troopers by Yes...ROOOOOOOOCK!!!!!!

Evidently my X-mas/NYE hibernation caused me to miss the upheaval here at the Laker Blog. Had no idea until today that the K Bros had been replaced by M squared.


Hi Mark, my name is Jamie Sweet and I am a huge Laker Fan. Good luck wranglin' these bloggers into being civil, it hardly ever happens. But that's why it's fun, too. Enjoy and excell!


Twitter is lame, nuff said.


Bynum for Bosh makes as much sense as CP3 for Shaqtus. I'd say Kobe's assessment of the team from last season's Houston series is the most accurate thing said about the team, and bench specifically yet, "We're bi-polar." Two faces to the same coin is the only description I can think of that fits the bench's identity, especially with Lamar starting. I just don't buy Farmar's "All we need is floor time to show what we can do." line, although it rings true in the sense if one isn't playing one cannot show what one can do, however, Farmar has been playing steady minutes all season long. His only consistent stat is head hanging after getting blown past on defense, it's so predictable I now sing 'Hang Your Head!' to the tune of the Crue's Bang Your Head, just for kicks. Similar to my 'Old Man Fisher' tune after as he shoots and hits a moon ball three (sung, of course, to the tune of Old Man River).


Brown and Sasha are the only two players who I feel haven't had enough minutes with some of the starters to show how well they could play with that unit. Farmar has spent lots of minutes with the starters and hasn't proved to me that it's something he's earned, let alone deserves.


I'll be a happy camper if he proves me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath. Mainly 'cause I'd pass out from oxygen deprivation at work. Not cool.

Lets get these bench players doing this on the road vs a few tougher opponents before we sing their praises.

YES! My feeling exactly, my good man, two games does not an All-Star make.

But maybe that's just me.
Posted by: ginocimoli

Dude - yup - it's you - all day long it's you.

BYNUM'S PROBLEM:

1. Too much fan and media hype has gotten into his head
2. A tad bit on a lazy side
3. Personal goal of all wannabe all star versus team goals, like let me help and do what ever it takes to win another ttile…playing defense, becoming the king of the paint on defense.
4. IMMATURE, IMMATURE KID based on response, ""I don't really care," Bynum said. "I love playing basketball. I'll play this game anywhere. I’m always mentioned. I think it’s a good thing."
5. In this society no one remembers a great player in a losing team. We all have selective memory and only remember winners
6. For Bynum to say that he would play anywhere shows how dumb the kid is, doesn't he realize the best place for an NBA player to be is with the Laker organization, especially the team looking to win titles for years to come.
7. It appears he has been sand bagging and to me as a professional player who is making millions is in poor taste and poor CHARACTER.
8. WAKE UP call for Bynum that he is not the 2nd option, not an all star, nor the beast but just a player who can be traded at any given moment.
9. I hope he embraces humility and always give his best and not sand bag (slimy thing to do).

MM,

You are doing a splendid job regardless of what others have posted about you on AK/BKs blog.

If I was jennings I'd be mad as hell if farmar talked smack to me...

Brandon scored 55 first year!! Farmar can't score that in 10 games

This may just prove how little respect farmar gets in the league.

Some days I feel like Rip Van Winkle by the time I get around to reading the threads.

***

Mamba24! I have a hoarders mentality when it comes to our players, I don't want to get rid of any of them. Please toss me onto the "what got us here" wagon. Also, MM has shown a lot of tolerance and humor as the new kindergarten teacher. I would however suggest he start bringing juice and cookies. Thanks and bandwagon me please.

***

Rick F - notwithstanding my above-referenced hoarders mentality, I'm certainly on board with opening up the 14th and 15th slot.

"So if Bosh isn't good enough for Bynum, who is? Hmmm. The mad general manager on my shoulder poistulates with joy. Chris Paul? Deron Williams?"
- wesjoenixon

I've said it before that I would not trade Bynum for Bosh. Having two outstanding bigs like Pau and Drew isa real luxury when any night one of them can go down (like now, maybe?). Other GMs in the league would kill to have our "problem".

But if there was going to be a trade, wes, yeah I'd do that one. Specifically, I want Deron Williams. He would make us an unbeatable team for years, with absolutely no weaknesses at any position, and killer defense every night. Dude, you're wicked for even suggesting such a trade and starting another trade war here.

This is family!

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT!!!! And welcome!


I'm really looking forward to the game tonight! I want to hear less yapping and see more beating the crap out of teams! Yah - I said it - hard work, tons of effort and a hard foul or 2 - GET IT DONE. The last thing I want to hear is a bunch of 2-stepping fans crowing tomorrow. All I want to hear from them is crickets.


GO LAKERS!!!

Nothing but another title will suffice.

(If you have a problem with that "signature" then you sure don't belong here. Feel free to move along little doggie.)

Guys - New post is coming up. So I find these comparisons hilarious. So far I've been compared to Ron Artest, kindergarten teacher,....curious what the next analogy will be. Dave M - to continue your analogy lol what would be the juice and cookies I'd be providing?

LakerTruth,
"We can argue the finer points of Bynum and Bosh all day long, but at the end of the day, it comes down to "who will give us the best chance at winning the next 3-4 championships?" The answer is Bosh, and it's not even close."

Unless Bynum changes his effort level when Gasol is playing, I think that's a correct assessment. The fact that at this point he still has an attitude like that makes me question that he will change his effort level. (Yes, he's only 22, but he's been on a team that lost in the Finals, then won, and has seen up close what is needed. He's had the greatest center of all time as his personal coach, along with a great coaching staff. And his teammate is probably the most intense player ever, eventually in the argument for greatest ever. And he still has a problem focusing?)

But maybe that's just me. Posted by: ginocimoli

Dude - yup - it's you - all day long it's you.

LAKER LIES,
- - - - - - - - - - - -
Yes, I did predict that Drew would make the All-Star team and be the #2 option. After his slump in December, Drew will probably not make the All-Star team this year. Similarly, I think the way Pay has played so far this year makes him the #2 option on offense. So yes, I was wrong and have no problem admitting it.
-
As for who is the better fit for the Lakers who already have Pau as power forward, I still contend that Drew is a much better fit. Bosh is a finesse player and his stats would never hold up playing with Pau and Lamar. He would make the Lakers a weaker, shorter, smaller, softer, and poorer defensive team in my opinion.
-
Bosh is still a soft finesse player and Pau cannot handle any of the real physical centers in the league. Shaq or Oden will just back him down and dunk on him. You claim to spout truths that are usually exposed as lies.

Mamba24,

Please put me on the Medina bandsagon. Thanks.

LAKERTRUTH - Mark had me at hello.

Young Buck needs to get a damn haircut!! Looks like Kid from Kid n Play... And passing the rock once in a while might be a good idea, too. No wonder his coach Scott Skiles had an irregular heartbeat the next day. Kid'll drive a coach crazy

Lakertruth,

"We can argue the finer points of Bynum and Bosh all day long, but at the end of the day, it comes down to "who will give us the best chance at winning the next 3-4 championships?" The answer is Bosh, and it's not even close."

Did you just get back from the future? How do you know exactly Bosh is the answer, when for the last two years all Lakers fans and sports analyst thinks the Lakers are the best team in the NBA right now as it is. A lot of it has to do with Bynum and Gasol's length.

Bosh is possibly equal becaus eof his talent and skills, but to say he will make The Lakers better without Bynum in the middle, you are guessing!

Bosh as the big man in Raptors and a superstar should be producing more than what he is doing right now and leading his team to respectable status in the East.

Bargnani is a 7' european much like Gasol, Turkglou made D. Howard get a lot of easy points.

Raptors in papers has a formidable front line.

Why can't Bosh lift up his team, like Howard does to Orlando?

You put to less on Bynum and put too much on Bosh. Now I made it just about even for you.

All Lakerfans should be happy and content with Bynum and Gasol, it is the envy of every NBA team!

Hi I'm from Peru and living in Argentina but lived in LA for 8 years back in the 80's. That's when I became a fan (not a bad time I guess) and been rooting ever since. I got my nba league pass on direct tv and just bought one on the internet so I don't miss a beat. Love reading the blog and everyone's posts. This is family!Posted by: South American lakeshow | January 12, 2010 at 01:52 PM

Hey South American lakeShow, welcome to LakersBlog 2.0 Lol!
We can always use another Lake Show here. And just from the fact that you are a Laker fan shows you are a person of class and fine taste. Lol! The personalities might take a getting use to and at times it might seem like a frat house but one thing you can believe if we have nothing else in common we all love the lakers and so that makes us Family. So welcome to the Laker Family. I bet by next week you'll be a blogging regular. Thanks for making the laker blog your second home and the Laker Nation family your second family. I'll be looking for your posts and I'm putting you on a prominent place on Roll call. watch for it tomorrow for the Dallas game. hopefully you can join in on the chat.

MM - you're Thriller, a kindergarten teacher AND the warden of the looney bin all rolled into one. And don't forget current blog GOD. I'd say when Dave M mentioned juice and cookies, he meant vodka and pie.... but that's just me...

Trade Andrew Bynum for Marc Gasol.

MM - how about chocolate chip cookies and apple juice for normals days, full bar for the chats? And don't pay any attention to lakerfan, nobody's said anything bad about you on the Kbros blog. Lakerfan, go stand in the corner!

" Meanwhile, the Beast is emerging"

atta boy LT - stand by your man!! I hope we get to see the Beast tonite! Hit the Alamo Dome with all you got, please!

Doug

ps: great post MM !! hilarious stuff.

Staples,

"all Lakers fans and sports analyst thinks the Lakers are the best team in the NBA right now as it is. A lot of it has to do with Bynum and Gasol's length."
----People think the Lakers are the best team because they went to back to back finals and won a championship (with zero or very little contribution from Bynum by the way). I can assure you that if we had Bosh, sports analysts would continue to think the Lakers are the best team.

"Bosh as the big man in Raptors and a superstar should be producing more than what he is doing right now and leading his team to respectable status in the East."
---Let me remind you that Pau won ZERO playoff games in TWELVE tries as the #1 option in Memphis, but he turned out alright on this team, didn't he? Just like Gasol, Bosh does not have to be the #1 option on this team.

"Bargnani is a 7' european much like Gasol"
---Yeah, they are both 7 feet and European, but Bargnani plays like a jump shooting SF in a big man's body. His game is NOTHING like Gasol's.

"Why can't Bosh lift up his team, like Howard does to Orlando?"
---Dwight is arguably a top 5 player in this league, and I would much rather take Dwight over Bosh, but that does not mean Bosh isn't an elite player. Again, Bosh will not be asked to carry the load and lead the team. That's Kobe's job.

"All Lakerfans should be happy and content with Bynum and Gasol, it is the envy of every NBA team!"
---I AM happy with Gasol and Bynum, but I would be happier with Gasol and Bosh.

(20) JAMIE SWEET - Hi Mark, my name is Jamie Sweet and I am a huge Laker Fan. Good luck wranglin' these bloggers into being civil, it hardly ever happens. But that's why it's fun, too. Enjoy and excell!
(21) LAKER-TRUTH - Please put me on the Medina bandsagon. LAKERTRUTH - Mark had me at hello.
(22) South American lakeshow - Love reading the blog and everyone's posts. This is family
(23) JOHNNYV - Mark Medina, I have liked VERY MUCH what you are doing here with this blog. You have been timely, efficient, attentive, responsive, etc etc. We are a tough group and we're upset about something alot of the time. It reminds me of my Italian Family playing their special brand of cards from Naples. They always seem so ANGRY at each other but they play ALL THE TIME! Haha. It's not an easy spot you occupy, but you are doing VERY WELL at it. I thank you for your part in keeping this special blog very special.
(24) DOUG -Great post MM !! hilarious stuff.
