New Jersey Nets' Farmar reacts to missed shot at buzzer as Dallas Mavericks win their NBA basketball game in Newark Reuters

Jordan Farmar — one of the handful of Jewish players in the NBA — will play during the lockout for Maccabi Tel Aviv, essentially the Yankees of the Israeli league and a European powerhouse.

And they are pretty excited to have him there — this is video of his arrival at the airport. (hat tip to I am a GM)

Best part of this: Farmar is wearing a “nice Jewish boy” T-shirt.
