Lin and Lamb?

The Lin and Lamb backcourt sounds great and I believe Jeremy Lamb is a potential starter down the road. However, I'm just not sure how far down the road that is.

Although he possesses an excellent wing span, he is a bit undersized for the 2 at 6'5 1/4" (with shoes) and 180 lbs. He will obviously need to gain some weight and add strength to be able to guard most NBA 2's. If Jeremy moves over to guard the 2, which he does often, I'm not sure Lamb will consistently guard the point position.

While Lamb is known as a good shooter, his 3 pt % in his final year of college was actually worse then JLin's:

Lin - (34.1%)
Lamb - (33.6%)

This is a bit worrisome. His stroke seems pure but his college shooting numbers aren't all that great. We'll have to wait and see on this. 

He is pretty athletic and moves well without the ball. I like his mid range game and he can finish strong with his length. This length also gives him the potential to be a good NBA defender as well.

I say he contributes as a Rookie but is at least a year away, probably two, from being a decent starter (15 PER). Also, don't forget any of the young guys (except JLin) are chips that could be traded at anytime.

  1. Lamb offseason in physical training? If there is no physical training is indeed worrying.

  2. Lamb shoots with a "leg-kick" that throws off his shooting form. Many young players have this, and I guess they use it to create space in traffic.

    On mid-range shots, the leg-kick is okay. But from 3pt range, those erratic body movements are magnified and throw off one's balance. Especially when you're fatigued.

    Jeremy Lin used to have a leg-kick on his jjumper as well...but he got rid of it. And his shooting improved as a result. IMO, Lamb needs to get rid of that leg-kick.

  3. I see Lamb in his first season similar to Rip Hamilton in his detroit days. He never needs the ball in his hands for a long period of time. He moves well without the ball to create space for his own shot. He's readiness for the NBA game will be crucial for Lin's Success next season. Lin definitely needs some help in the 2 position.

    Last season, Fields and Shump were athletic but were not really offensively talented to relieve some pressure from Lin. Both players cannot create their own shots forcing Jeremy to carry the load of the backcourt. Now, Jeremy can now have an option to run plays to free up Lamb like those plays for Reggie Miller, Richard Hamilton and Ray Allen. Houston will definitely have an instant offense. So Lamb is an upgrade for sure. The key for Lamb is to learn to create space for him to release his shots. Running through screens, hitting mid range shots and maybe some occasional 3s.

    Another additional option for jeremy is DMo. His footspeed may be questionable but what can do best is to hit 3s. I see him in a lot of pick and pop plays and some postup plays if the opponents decide to switch the pick and roll. Jeremy may have Stat last season but the Knicks' spacing was dreadful. If Dmo can hit the 3s consistently then another instant offense for them. i see D-Mo similarto Channing Frye with a decent postup game. Frye even burned my Spurs in the 2010 playoffs. Pop even said that Frye created so much mismatch since big guys do not want to guard the perimeter.

    The key for both players will be their ability to hit their jumpshots consistently.

  4. Lamb doesn't look like undersized at 6'5 as a SG. He can get up pretty easy for dunks, well compared to Lin. You can't compare their college stats because Lamb played in a much tougher conference than Lin.

    4. People were nitpicking when they mention that he has no left hand. They're really exaggerating his "weakness".

      I don't think it really matters when he can do what he does just going right. Yes, it would help his overall game but definitely not as big of concern as "experts" make it seem.

      Did anyone ever question Manu Ginobili's right hand? This guy was SO good with his dominant hand it didn't really matter.

      Delete
    5. I think basically it's just like what Lin has said that he will always have doubters and haters.

      So those people will always bring up something to discredit him, such as:
      1. can't drive to the left: so what? Like Unknown said: "Did anyone ever question Manu Ginobili's right hand?" This is completely a double-standard non-sense.

      2. TOs: which, per someone in a previous thread in this site, Nash and D-Will were the kings of TOs last season. Where are the criticism to Nash/D-Will? Another double-standard BS.

      3. Miami game: where an NBA "CHAMPION" team developed a game plan to stop, NOT Melo, NOT Stat, NOT Tyson, but a (virtually) rookie. Even though Heat won in that game, but this is really a lose-face thing for them. They should feel embarrassed, and try their best not to mention it again.

      3. his new contract: again, so what? why was he criticized the most for the same or similar money that Asik/Landry get (they didn't even have the same significant impact to the NBA, and fans all over the world. Sorry, Landry, I'm just stating the truth, and I do like the chemistry btwn you and Lin on the court). Another example of double-standard BS.

      There are many other examples, which I'm sure you all know better than I.

  6. JLin finger training

    http://p.twimg.com/A1jVR6CCUAAUu0l.jpg

    JLin pokes his fingers & hand into a bucket of rice grains 3-4x a week as part of his training regimen. He said as a point guard, it is easy to hurt & injure one's fingers. This 'exercise' is a way to strengthen the muscle groups as well as muscle relaxation for the fingers. It helps to practice finger roll.

    1. This was another non-story. Initially, I thought he was trash talking him but if you read the whole interview (not found on isportstimes), you will realize that he praised jlin. He said some thing like this: "i wish he does well except against the Celtics because we're going t beat them pretty badly" . Those were not the exact words but the message was the same. The media only picked the last words without including the previous statements. I think TVN posted the interview in the previous thread. So this is a non-story. But Jlin should use this as motivation.

    2. Thx for the clarification, neph. :)

    3. Rondo should be COMPLIMENTED for wanting to Linbarrass the Houston Rockets.

      Players in the NBA are too chummy with each other. Guys should want to kill each other in games, even or especially if they're friends off the court.

      When the Bulls played the Suns for the championship, Michael Jordan pulled out all the stops to win. He invited the entire Suns team to his restaurant to soften them up. He gave Charles Barkley a $30K watch because he wanted Charles to not hit him when Jordan attacked the basket. It all worked, because Barkley terrorized the Bulls but meekly let Jordan skywalk all over him.

      Rajon Rondo respects Lin, unlike a lot of players in the NBA. Thus Rondo wants to PUNK Lin and show everybody that Lin is no match for him. Meanwhile Jeremy Lin is probably wanting to go right at Rondo and make him Linbibe his words.

      Every NBA player, no matter how scrubby, should strut onto the court with arrogant pride and think that he can do whatever he wants. That includes Jeremy Lin who has publicly proclaimed that he wants to be the best player in the entire NBA. I salute both Rondo and Lin!

    4. I wanna see JLin and Rondo throw down in a UFC-style cage fight!

    6. What I am concerned is that Rondo's attitude may reflect the attitudes held by all NBA teams, so that they will play extra hard against JLin, in which case, JLin is in for a very tough season. It's sort of unfair because JLin did not seek all the attention, but I guess it comes with the territory.

    8. I WANT teams to play extra hard against Jeremy Lin in hopes of embarrassing him.

      There is no higher compliment to an NBA player than other players wanting to take him on and humiliate him publicly!

      Average players don't get targeted by opposing teams. That is because no special treatment is needed to keep an average player from taking over games. But Lin has amply proved that he can beat teams all by himself, which is why he is a STAR and is defended like one.

      The harder the competition, the faster Lin will improve. This will come in handy in pressure situations, particularly playoff basketball. After this upcoming season, Lin will likely have faced every kind of Jordan Rules defense that a NBA guard could possibly face.

      I also expect Jeremy Lin to go out and Linbarrass many of opponents who are coming after him. He's not getting paid his $5 million next season to cower in fear.

      Jeremy Lin will likely be the most targeted player in the NBA next season. Thus he has the ultimate opportunity to fight off all those oppnents and become the SUPERSTAR that opponents respect him as!!!

      Delete
    9. KHuang: yes, theoretically, that's good for him, but what I am worrying about is that some teams/players may go to extreme in trying to harm him purposely, when they can not stop him.

      The new season will be very tough for Lin, as for every game he will be facing, the opponents will be playing them like playoff games against him.

      Delete
    10. Good concern, HY.

      If teams bounty hunt Lin and the NBA refs don't stop it, then Lin will simply have to protect himself and retaliate in legal but painful ways.

      Fortunately, Lin has a coach in Kevin McHale who will eagerly teach him how to trash talk, play dirty but legally, and punish opponents for bounty hunting him. McHale is the best coach Lin could have for that.

      I would like to see Lin not just beat off the bounty hunters but become the AGGRESSOR. Just as a rookie Lin bumped Derek Fisher and basically laughed when Fisher helplessly flailed at him, Lin could become a bully who intimidates other point guards and struts around the court daring opponents to headhunt him at their own risk.

    11. Rajon Rondo has the street ballers mentality. It's players like him who don't give respect to Jeremy Lin and his college background. He's only played one game against Lin. Rondo only respects those who can clearly beat him .... period.

    12. I agree with everything KHuang said. There is no turning back. Irrelevant players do not get embarrassed by opponents. Only those who are good will get that treatment. Jeremy has to be ready every single game. He might play in a playoff intensity every game which is good for his development. Because now, he'll get a taste of every possible defensive schemes. He'll increase exponentially his Basketball IQ. He'll improve faster. He'll adjust also adjust faster.

      Another thing that may help him counter the opposing teams is gameplan. The coach must have a gameplan for every possible defensive schemes. Those counter plans may help Jeremy and his teammates take advantage of the defense. they should space the floor accordingly to provide Jeremy with sufficient room to operate.

    13. @ABC Baller

      jeremy will have a hazing next season. He'll be tested by every other point guards in the league. Of course you cannot expect the elite ones to respect you that easily. Respect is earned not given. Those elite players have done for several years so do not expect them to just respect Jeremy. Anyways, Jeremy does not need their respect. he's being paid by the Rockets to improve their team. He can do that by beating his matchup and making others better. So this trash talking against Lin is good for him. It will serve as an extra motivation. There is no time to relax for Lin. He better be ready for a Hell of a season. It will surely improve his development.

      Rondo invited Lin to play in his charity game last year. Besides, Lin is just another PG that Rondo wants to Linbarrass. Rondo has it out for EVERYBODY.

      A Jeremy Lin led Houston Rockets team is basically a bunch of semiskilled brutes running up and down the court playing smashmouth basketball. They'll ram the ball down people's throats and be stymied by the bigger teams like Boston or LA or Philly. But the Rockets are gonna be young, dumb, and FUN!!!

      Expect the Rockets to be a very physical, if a bit unskilled, team.

    18. It doesn't matter if Rondo respects Lin or not. He's being paid to produce results not gain respect of his opponents. respect will come naturally, just wait for several seasons.

      Yes, I want some physical basketball. They should go out on the floor like they are going in a WAR. Expect an in-your-face style of basketball. There are no friends on the court. You can be nice to each other after the game.

      I adore Olajuwon's low post afterschool program, but the Rockets have Kevin McHale who was at least as good a post player as Olajuwon was.

      Coach Kevin McHale developed Al Jefferson, Kevin Garnett, and Kevin Love. He knows how to tutor big men into becoming big time players.

      I absolutely worship the short low post tutorial Kevin McHale did on Res Auerbach's video "Winning Basketball". Mchale teaches the entirety of his low post game, including how to position oneself defensively and how to properly rebound and block shots.

      I love Hakeem Olajuwon's game and teaching. But this is Kevin McHale we're talking about here!

    1. If the Rockets plan to clear up space for their 15-man roster, they can trade to the SPURS Parsons or Montiejunas. We'll gladly give them Neal, Bonner, and Blair. Then, they could trade Bonner and Blair for future draft picks. We'll help the Rockets finalize their roster. They will also have a backup pg in Neal.

      Delete
    2. I won't get into mock trades.

      Kawhi Leonard is a good young forward who benefits greatly from playing with a veteran Spurs team.

      So far, I haven't seen anything from him that indicates he's a creative player. He shoots outside OK, finishes well around the rim, and is solid defensively.

      What the Spurs could do is hand him Bruce Bowen's old role as defensive stopper and corner 3 pt threat. I just don't see any basketball changeup skills in him that would make him a true offensive threat.

      Unless Kawhi Leonard has magically transformed into a change of direction dribble driving jump shooting forward, he'll continue to be the solid role player that he was with the Spurs last season.

    3. the word is Leonard might have done just that. just likes year, he's putting in a lot of work on his own to pump up his game. he's a high character guy that has no problem working harder than the next guy.

      he's in a good position. drafted 15th and traded for (?)but given lots of minutes on a contender..... and paying off for the spurs. I wouldn't count him out. I'm rooting for the guy.


      Did anyone else catch him tearing people up so hard with new moves that the spurs pulled him after just a couple days of summer league? he's helped by the stars of the spurs, but he might not need them after all.... quite possibly the other way around.

  22. No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, the president said, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. “We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin,” Mr. Obama said, according to the aide.
