Jordan Farmar putting up "MVP" like numbers

Ready to hear about Jordan Farmar’s year with Anadolu Efes? Because he’s having a good one.

Currently, his 19.3 ppg are good for fourth (Sonny Weems leads with 20.3), his 6.7 assists third (Jerel Blassingame, 9.3) and his 26.7 index rating is tops in the league, three points higher than Rudy Fernandez’s 23.7.

Even the point guard’s 6.7 rebounds per game rate ninth in the league, cementing the idea that Farmar is finally where he needs to be professionally: in the Euroleague, and in control.

Not only is Farmar both the propellor and rudder to Efes’ offense, but he and Jamon Lucas form maybe the toughest defensive backcourt in the entire Euroleague when they share a court. And for a little extra offensive punch, enter Sasha Vujacic, and all that he is.

An irritant, an instigator. An occasional scorer. Fourteen a night means the machinery is working just fine, thanks.

Farmar might be the MVP up to this point.
