Doron Lamb signs with pro team in Montenegro


I didn’t think it was possible, but Doron Lamb’s Twitter account is about to get even more interesting. According to Sportando, Lamb has signed with KK Buducnost Voli, a professional team in Podgorica, Montenegro.

Also on Buducnost? Former St. John’s star Omar Cook. After reading the roster, I’m pretty sure everyone else is from Montenegro or one of the other Balkan states. And don’t worry, judging by the videos on their Facebook page, basketball is a BIG THING over there:

I don’t even know where to start with that video, so I guess I’ll just say “Who up, Podgorica?”.

    What’s the over/under for number of people falling over that ledge per season? Also, first time I’ve ever seen dugouts for a bb team. Crap must get real in Monte.

    Doron seems like a good dude, but it was always obvious he was was never going to be good enough for the NBA. So he was a great example of the Kentucky effect. Had he gone to St. Johns or similar, he would have been labeled a bust because he had such stellar high school rankings and likely would have underachieved for 3-4 years. At UK, he was a role player, not asked to do much, so he gets drafter MUCH HIGHER and MUCH SOONER on potential alone. Had he gone to home state U. and just been average to slightly above average for 3-4 years before going undrafted, he likely now would be signing with a Montenegro-like team for less money, and never actually had an NBA opportunity.

    This is the TRUE value of the Kentucky Effect.

    Do you honestly think Teague, Lamb, Liggins, Jorts, James Young, etc. would have made nearly as much money or gotten the opportunity to get an NBA drink of water before ultimately ending up playing pro ball overseas for $150K. Don’t get me wrong, I am not knocking playing overseas versus the NBA. Regardless of the much lower pay…they are still playing a game for a living and living in a foreign country as a local celebrity …all of which would be very cool culturally and way better than the alternative of being a 9-5 working stiff like most of us.

      That’s fair, but Doron was the 2012 team’s second leading scorer and showed he could shoot the ball. 1000 point club in two seasons.

      Eat D Lamb was always more concerned about Twitter and women than basketball. He did not work hard enough and did not live up to his potential at UK and the pros.

    Basketball is huge over there. There is a reason the former Yugoslavia was the second best international team in the world.
