Doron Lamb is not super athletic like Boynton, but he is long and lean and oh does he have a way of getting it done. During the NBAPA, he could draw fouls at will and was deadly from the stripe. He slashes well and isn't afraid to battle bigger guys. He has good on ball defensive skills and plays the passing lanes well, not to mention switching off with precision. In short, he is a player that has a nice package to bring to the table.
Doron Lamb! How old are you?
If somebody had never seen your game, how would you describe it to them?
I'm a hard worker who gets back on defense and loves to play it. Defense is my thing. Get my teammates involved and score when I have to.
What's it like playing on a team that is so guard heavy? (Boynton, Knight and Golden)
I like playing with good players, They're All Americans and it makes me better.
Who is the toughest player you have gone up against thus far?
Where are you in the process right now? Are you getting serious yet?
I'm not worried about college right now. I have two more years of high school. I am hearing from a lot of schools though.
... and they are?
Syracuse, Georgetown, Kansas, Duke, North Carolina are some.
Wow! That's the big dogs Tell me about Georgetown and what you like ...
They have a good coach and I like their style.
How about Duke?
Duke? I mean they're one of the best teams in the country. Coach K is one of the best coaches.
What factors will eventually go into your decision. What will play a role in the ultimate choice?
I want to play for a team that runs up and down the court.
You have a knack for drawing contact and getting to the line. You did that almost at will in the games I have watched, hitting your free throws too ...
I'm not afraid to take it down low.
Where will you be the rest of the AAU summer?
We are going to Peach Jam in a few weeks and then Orlando and then the showcase.
What are your aspirations for the coming high school season?
To win the state. We went to the final four last year and it was not enough for me. I want to win the state.
Give me three words which best describes your game ...
Hard worker, coachable and dependable.
How do you like the camp?
It's a good camp. They teach you how to handle yourself on and off the court.
You are one of a handful of underclassmen here. Is that an honor?
Yes, it's an honor to be invited to top flight camp. It's mice to make new friends with a lot of people.
So, it's do or die against the unbeaten Lakers ... are you going to do it?
Yeah, we're going to win. I am ready to play some defense.
One more question, what is your actual height and weight?
I'm 6-3, 170, but I am pushing 6-4.
Lamb, Boynton and Knight led their team to a win over the previously unbeaten Lakers in the next game, but fell short in the title game. Lamb scored in double figures both games.[/private]
