I honestly think Lamb's range ends a few feet shy of the NBA three. NCAA arc was about as far as he could stretch it without forcing it. Looks much more comfortable in the midrange.

Bad half for Lamb. 3-10 shooting and drew one shooting foul. He looks really comfortable driving into the lane though, he'll need it if his jumper continues to struggle.

He shot 49% and 47% from 3 in college. I don't think a couple extra feet means he can't get to league average. I think he needs playing time to get used to the game.

I'm more than aware of his stats. He hasn't given any indication that he does have the additional 2-3 feet of range, and his poor form/tendency not to square his shoulders to the hoop would be indicative of someone who struggles to keep/extend that range at the next level.

I don't know about poor form. All scouting reports rave about his shooting form. Maybe you see something new this year or his elbow ligament tear is still bothering him.

Lower body mechanics. He points his feet to the left to get his right shoulder closer to the rim. If he faces the rim (12:00) and takes a three from the top of the key, his feet are going to be pointing somewhere between 10:00-11:00 before he elevates. Kinda like the way Dion Waiters shoots/squares up, only Dion has actually been able to hit that shot before I stopped following the Cavs a couple months into the season.

4-14 from the field, poor decision making on a number of plays, couldn't tell when he was on the floor/didn't stand out amongst D-League talent, an Ersan-like confidence in his jump shot, and not even seeing the floor the final five minutes of the game during crunch time.

We need to send this dude to the F-League.

4-14 obviously isn't good. But he hasn't played normal basketball since last year. This is all about him getting his confidence back. And getting in the flow of things which he hasn't been able to do since being a Buck.

Agreed, he is a 2nd rounder, and that is without question. As a physical specimen, he offers little. The young look equates to his lack of growth and development. He'll probably never be a 'man' in the NBA... His better days are unfortunately behind him... unless he grows a pair.

I can appreciate his driving skills against lower tier talent, but in the bigs... I do not see anything that stands out.

I don't know if anyone thought he'd be "the man" in the NBA. There's a reason why he was drafted in the second round. I'm a huge fan of him and I think his absolute peak is probably a Marcus Thornton type guy. I don't see any reason he can't be a Meeks type guy but we'll see if he can get his shot to fall in the NBA, Meeks struggled mightily well he was here as well. I don't see how "growing a pair" is helping him, he looked pretty confident in his game when he played, he just couldn't hit a shot to save his life. His defense is pretty solid and he doesn't get lost like Henson and Tobes are prone to do so he has that going for him. He was one of the best shooter in college, that usually doesn't just go away. Hopefully he can pull something together in the league. He's 30 games into his rookie year with one of the worst player development coaches in the NBA and his clone replacing him, give him some time.

Overreact much? One freaking D-League game and Doron Lamb is now hot garbage? Remember when Larry Sanders struggled mightily in Summer League and almost everyone (not me) wrote him off? Now he's the starting center and some Bucks fans believe he's the best player on the team. We should probably give Lamb a little time before declaring he's trash and trading him for Royal Ivey.

This did too. :)




Too bad to see Lamb struggle in his first game, but it was just that. Some guys only get a handful of games down there before they get called back up but I'd like to see him stay down there until there is minutes ready for him in the rotation (or until he proves that he is definitely not worth those minutes).

Lamb didn't have the luxury of a full training camp with the Mad Ants.

Jeremy's numbers aren't any better and he was drafted much higher (many of us wanted him even) if that makes anyone feel better.

My thoughts exactly, I find it comical to over analyze one D-League game. Lamb finds out on Sunday he's going down to the NBADL he's obviously got to pack some stuff, get down to Fort Wayne practice for a day or two, then on to LA for his first game, meanwhile he's meeting all new people, has to figure out what system the team runs, and people expect him to come in and do what in his first game?

I was in Vegas for the summer league and the one word I would use to describe Lamb is smooth. He's going to be a nice player, but he's going to need some time to develop. He's got a real nice jumper, a good knack for finishing around the rim, moves real nice without the ball, and he can play some point guard to. He just needs minutes and time to develop, which he wasn't getting here. I think it was a good move to send him down, and I'm sure he's going to put up some nice numbers and he will be back up with the Bucks soon, right now he just needs to play.

Jeremy Lamb's D-League numbers are quite nice.

If you can't dominate in the D Leauge, that is a bad sign. Even guys like Potsie, Terrence Williams, etc pretty easily outclass the competition there.
