The news that UCLA fans have long been waiting for has finally arrived. Five-star Kevin Love (6-9, 240) from Lake Oswego, Ore., has made up his mind. It was a tough decision for Love to make but in the end he decided to return to his family's Los Angeles roots to play for UCLA.[details]
Strengths: Farmar's best attributes revolve around his phenomenal playmaking skills, basketball IQ and the way he makes everyone around him better, which separates him from every other point guard in this draft except for possibly Marcus Williams. Farmar is an unbelievable passer, possessing terrific court vision and an uncanny knack for delivering the ball in a favorable position to score. Much of his success as both a passer and a scorer has to do with his terrific ball-handling skills. Farmar possesses all the crafty little tricks great shot-creators have. Considering that he is not an explosive athlete, this ability to create space to operate is extremely important.
Weaknesses: The most glaring would be his lack of athleticism, as he possesses average explosiveness at best. His first step is not all that impressive. He often needs a screen, nifty ball-handling or other tricks to get by his man at the college level. He is not a consistent shooter. Farmar showed some definite problems with not knowing his limitations at times. Farmar's second biggest weakness is his defense. He only possesses average length and lateral quickness and therefore struggles to stay in front of quicker opponents.
