Adam Zagoria caught up with Doron Lamb before the Magic/Knicks game this evening and asked him his thoughts on UK winning next year’s National Championship in the wake of Julius Randle’s commitment and several freshmen hinting at returning:
“Yeah, it will be easier for everybody if they all stay because you ain’t gotta do that much to win a championship.” (Can we all stop there and appreciate that classic Doron Lamb quote?) “You’re all great players and they all should be pros, so you gotta wait and see what happens.”
On the importance of having veterans on your team: “It’s a big factor having guys on your team that been through it and know what to do, know how it is to win games. Just teaching the freshmen how to win and let them know what’s going to happen before it happens. I was big on Mike, Anthony and Teague.”
On Cal managing egos and players having to fight for PT: “It’s going to be tough. Guys [have to] compete in practice [and] see who gets the job.”
On if they’ll win it in 2014: “Yeah, if they all stay, they are winning guaranteed.”
Now, if only we can teach Doron to check the score of the UK game before asking on Twitter, we’ll be golden.
