    Lol so Lin whose put up multiple 20-10-10 games in the d league and has broken out having multiple 20+ point or 10+ assist games in the NBA whose proven to be an NBA starter at a young age has limited upside yet Jeremy Lamb who had one good game in the d league and is shooting less than 40 percent from the field even as a bench player has perennial hall of fame caliber upside? Lol alright buddy

    Hes on a packed thunder team but yeah I see perry jones becoming a pretty good player developing under Durant but Lamb will become a superstar, I see Rudy Gayish for now but his D isn't terrible so I see him taking that next step and becoming whatever he wants to be. He has all the tools on offense already, 3 point flawless, mid range, handles, leaps, vision, iq, a good flow to his game, and can create for himself. Not many rookies can do what Lamb can do now aside from lillard and kyrie their first years and you see what type of potential they have.

    Couldn't agree more. Harden is twice as thick too and just as mobile. I'm glad we have Harden. Lamb might be a nice replacement for Martin in the upcoming years. Oklahoma did a good job of minimizing the damage of losing Harden and the Rockets did a great job in picking up Harden.

    To me ginobili was a superstar.

    This thread is terrible and the author just have no clue. Comparing pierce to bird is just insulting.
    Lamb is probably going to be a rotation player on the nba.

    Lamb will be, at best, a 3rd best player on a contender. I don't see any superstar in him, and never have, but he'll definitely be a high quality contributor.

    Doubt he'll be a superstar.

    The Thunder were adding him to trade offers they were making at the deadline.

    Maybe he can reach Kevin Martin's level if he learns to draw a lot of fouls

    If he works hard and stays motivated, I have no doubt Jeremy Lamb can be as good as Kevin Martin. Wouldn't surprise me if they trade him over the summer, but either way, he should get a chance to be in somebody's rotation next season.

    A superstar like Rudy Gay? When did Rudy Gay become a superstar? I must have been gone the day that happened.

    Not sold on superstar potential. All star potential, perhaps... if his defense develops, perhaps he could evolve into a Ray Allen type player. Not a foundational franchise type player, but a great 2nd or 3rd piece on a contender.

    I can say without a doubt he'll be a mega big time well known internationally acclaimed top tier superstar based on the youtube 3 min or less highlight test

    I'd try to package him with Perkins and Perry Jones and go after Gortat and Scola.

    OKC is trying to win a championship they don't have time to throw a rookie in the fire especially when they traded for Kevin Martin also by giving up a great player in Harden.

    Jermaine O'Neal didn't get playing time on Portland and ended up being an all-star.
