Farmar’s Double Duty

Twice now, Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Jordan Farmar has pulled off the unprecedented feat of playing in a NBA Development League game and an NBA game in the same day.
My reaction: SO WHAT!
Who cares that he played in two games in one day? Is the NBA, are the Lakers, that desperate for headlines that they have to fabricate a first to get some publicity? What’s the purpose of him doing both, other than to become a trivia answer for the socially challenged?
There’s a playoff chase going on. An MVP race going on. This is the most intense part of the NBA season. On the scale of NBA importance, this ranks below Clyde Drexler’s performance in dancing with the stars.
