Jordan Farmar on playing hoops in Israel

Jordan Farmar, the former Laker and UCLA Bruin, is one of a small number of NBA players who are Jewish. His stepfather was born in Tel Aviv, and Farmar has gone over there to play during the NBA lockout. He also is applying for Israeli citizenship.

In addition to the video, there's an audio story from today's The World on PRI.
