Doron Lamb to return for sophomore season

Page 2 of IMO it's dumb for any kid that doesn't have a top 20 guarantee from multiple teams to leave. A 2nd round contract is not worth it, the thing isn't even... 40 comments | 1335 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Only twice. He would be a 4 year type for stability. Already a college made body, but tends to want to be a 3 more than he should. If Cal can get him focused on being a 4 instead of hanging around on the perimeter he would be a solid addition...

    Do you think he'd be able to contribute right away anything at all, or would it be a year or two before he would get solid PT and any production?

    GT, I've been wanting to ask you something for a while so I figure now is as good as time as any. We have all heard about how Gilchrist is a good defender, how does he compare to Liggins as a defender?

    I think he would need some time, but he is very mature physically so you can't rule out some spot minutes early...

    Better defender than Liggins was as a freshman.

    They are a lot different physically with Liggins using his long arms to really disrupt his opponent where Gillie is more physical and uses his body. I never expect a freshman to be where he needs to be on the defensive end, but Mike is about as good as it can get for a young pup...

    Come on man, you can be honest with us .

    Anyways, DLamb coming back would be awesome. I really like that guy, I think he also really needs another year or two.

    Lamb isn't close to being ready to go. I'm not really sure there is even a decision to be made. With these kids you never know I guess.

    Don't forget that Kanter is on scholarship as well.

    It doesn't matter if he is ready. It only matters if someone is willing to write him a check.

    He isn't close to being ready for someone to write him a check.

    Once again he doesn't have to be ready, they do. Nobody thought Orton was ready and they were right. But he only had to fool one team and he did.
