Farmar vs Brown thus far

Just curious as to all your opinions on the Farmar vs Brown PG battle thus far this preseason.

Shannon has played well with some great highlights reel dunks. He got the start last night but failed to really do anything (I've only watched the first half).

Farmar, to me, has done a better job of running the point. He has layed off the 3. even though he's shooting 44% from behind the arc and he has penetrated and dished more than usual which I think is his key to success. I was also paying close attention to Farmar's D against Augustine and the pick and roll and he didn't do too bad.

Farmar is averaging 9 pts on 48.1% from the field, 3.8 assists, 1 steal, and 1.75 turnovers, and as mentioned before, 44.4% from 3.

Brown is averaging 6 points on 33% shooting from the field, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steal, 1.25 turnovers, and a awful 1.25% from 3.

I know its early and both have a lot of time to do a 180 but I still think Farmar is the clear cut PG. He is penetrating more and using his speed as an asset. He's averaging 2.4 assists per game for his career so 3.8 is a huge leap. If Farmar can keep it up and play some solid defense, I still think he may be able to be the Lakers PG of the future. I still see Brown as a energy guy that gets a little PT every game but doesn't play a monster role throughout the year.
