Calipari: “Doron Lamb is our best basketball player.”


Keep on talking about Kentucky’s incoming freshmen class of Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague, Kyle Wiltjer and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist – they’re all going to be stars. And yeah, Terrence Jones is one of the best sophomores in all of basketball. This you know. But guess who Calipari said is the best basketball player on the team? Doron “Three Goggles” Lamb.


When asked where Doron Lamb will fit into the rotation this season, Calipari told ESPN’s Andy Katz that Doron is the best basketball player on the team. “He has a great feel for the game and it showed against Connecticut,” Calipari said. “In my opinion, he’s going to be one of the top-15 players in the country.”

Lamb could end up in that sixth man role again this season for Kentucky, so if he really is what Calipari says he is, Kentucky’s competition should be terrified. This team is already going to be a force on defense, so a scorer like Lamb could be a lethal combo. We’ve already seen flashes of greatness from Doron (freshman single game record) and Coach Cal said he has worked hard on his ball handling and matured this summer. Put it this way – he’s always had an elite set of offensive tools, and now he’s sharpening them.

Whether Lamb’s coming off the bench or starting at the 2 next to Marquis Teague, we could be watching an absolute beast of a scorer next season.

November 15th can’t get here soon enough.

    I have said for months that Lamb will lead the SEC in scoring and
    3 pt. FG%.

  2. Jax Teller

    D Lamb a top 15 player in the country? See Kentucky Effect. Looking for the reason there is a KY effect, Coach Cal is the mastermind behind it. The guy is simply a genius. We’ve said it before, but its worth repeating, he gets it.

    “November 15th can’t get here soon enough.”

    You could say that 100 times and it would be true every time. It’s hard making it thru UK football. With people saying they will be good and…you know, they are not. Oh well. I guess that makes me a bad fan. Oh wait I’m not a UK Football fan. I’m a UK basketball fan.

    what to do , what to do

  13. Irishhooliganx

    I did. He texted and said he was coming to my podcast to
    discuss it, but he bailed on me.

  14. Tim

    of course Lamb will start. The locks are:


    The question is who starts at the 3, Miller or Gilchrist?

  15. Emerson Biggins

    Straight Butter!

    #9, I have a storage shed I’ll sell you for $5,000. You come pick it up and it’s yours bro

    I said this at halftime of the Final Four game against Connecticut. There’s no way Darius Miller will ever be the leader we need him to be at UK. Doron Lamb is never afraid to take the big shot or scared to be great and needs to be in the starting line-up. Let Miller come off the bench and be the outstanding role player with senior heart that he is meant to be on next years championship team.

    I’ll buy your womens for cash. Call me @ 502-418-8968! Do you have womens sitting in your back yard and want to get rid of it for cash? Call me….

  23. Terrance Jones

    Cal forgot I’m coming back too. I will be the best player on this team…Lamb can be a close second.

    Second use of the word “beast” in the first three articles.
    Time to retire that word, but not until I say this season’s Wildcats will be a five-headed BEAST!!!!

  26. Pup, MD

    I think the obvious outcome is that Darius and MKG are going to go all Voltron and form Marius Kidd-Miller-Gilchrist.

  27. Torian

    Still no post about Torian Graham??? Hear he wants to come to UK…

  28. Cameron Mills

    Yea Doron is real good, he is currently the BEST 3point shooter UK has ever had coming in just ahead of my %. Glad to see a knock down guy on the perimeter, he should compliment the dribble drive well. Go get em Doron, oh and he can take it to the rim too.



  30. Andy

    I say he starts at PG, Miller at SG, Gilchrist SF, Davis and Jones.
    Teague off the bench.

  31. Flatbill&Linebeard

    #30 I’ll take an eighth of what you’re smokin. Teague @ 1 Lamb @ 2 Miller @ 3 and gilchrist off the bench once cal decides who he needs to shut down.
