You are one of six UCLA point guards currently in the NBA. Russell Westbrook with the Thunder. Earl Watson (Pacers), Darren Collison (Hornets), Baron Davis (Clippers), Jrue Holiday (76ers). Why so many Bruins making it big as point guards?

Farmar: "We just happened to go there, I guess. We all played for different coaches. A lot of us have moved in. Russell (Westbrook), and Darren (Collins) and I played for Coach Howland. He’s a good basketball coach. Teaches you to be ready to play at this level. We just came in one after another, got an opportunity to come in and play at a high level and show our talents and go pursue our careers.”

Is there a certain fraternity feeling among you ex-Bruins?

Farmar: "Definitely. Once you’re a Bruin, you’re a Bruin for life. We all take pride of being part of that history and tradition. Looking forward to building on that. Got a chance to do that with the Lakers, my hometown team, win a championship here. Which is special. Definitely take pride in being a Bruin.
