Doron Lamb is one of the best three-point shooters in Kentucky history. And according to SLAM Magazine, he’s one of the best basketball players in New York City history.

SLAM named the 60 best basketball players to ever come out of the Big Apple today and Doron Lamb made the cut. The players are not ranked, but this is the short snippet about Lamb.

Doron Lamb

Lower East Side native Doron Lamb started his high school career at Bishop Loughlin in Brooklyn. He put up 22 a game as a sophomore, catching the eye of Oak Hill Academy. He left New York to finish high school, finding his way to Kentucky as a collegian. He won a National Championship in 2012.

Now seems like a good time to revisit Lamb’s two years in Lexington. His title game in 2012 is one of the more underrated performances in a big game.

    Why don’t this site ever bring up Terrace Jones? Transfers like Kwilt get more love

    Mashburn is on the list. Greg Anthony’s son is too and he’s still in high school. A little premature if you ask me.

    Yea I totally agree , his production is severely overlooked . He was just money and we tend to kinda forget it. He had so many superstars as teammates . He is one of my fav wildcats still . I love his social media accounts , esp his instagram vids

    Had a hot hand in the championship game , nice . The vid drew posted was a nice reminder of # 20s ultra soft hands . The rim was no problem to any of his threes . It seemed to just vacuum the ball in . He was a quiet guy , part of the reason he’s kinda forgotten . Not here though – I’ve appreciated his time at uk big time . He had a nice fresh year with the cats . I think he hit almost 100 . The vid also shows us that marquis Teague was the same way . Kinda quiet but we leaned on him a lot / especially in the second half of the season . He rarely made mistakes or turn overs and his offensive game & shot found its way in the latter part of the season . I love reflecting on this year (2012 cats )

    Those unis are some of the best by the way . Our uniform situation is kinda of a silly one – it’s hard to make some that won’t be criticized all to hell bc of our long running deep tradition & the type of fan base we have . Almost any other team can get away with totally over hauling them cuz there’s nothing tying them down
