    I am shocke Jeremy Lamb turned out to be fools gold. He the look of a near all star in the making.

    Glad we were on the winning side of the deal. What is sad, was the Rockets offer was best OKC could muster up for Harden.

    What makes me laugh is that people were still nut hugging on Presti as recently as last season for being a brilliant GM. I admit he scouted Westbrook and Ibaka well, but drafting KD was a no brainer. Now they stand in the middle of an off season were the franchise's hope teeters on re-signing Enes Kanter.

    The Rockets should retire Lamb's jersey if the Rox will even win a championship in the Harden era.

    Has he played well so far or is this Charlotte being Charlotte?

    With the cap going up next year, $21 million is gonna look like $21.

    He hasnt looked too bad.

    Have seen some good things in spurts from him so far.

    $21M with the cap situation this off season, is a good deal for a team like the Hornets and a project like Lamb..

    7-ish% of the eventual cap.

    I'm really shocked this guy has not been a consistent solid player. He has all the given talent, long arms, athletic and range. Anybody who followed him have an answer?

    Pretty bad defensively.

    Doesn't play every possession on that end.

    Overpaid in my opinion. Inconsistent shooter (so far). Doesn't get to the line. Not a great rebounder or passer. Inconsistent effort defensively.

    But definitely talented.

    Wow. 7 mil per year. That makes the deal we signed KJ for look like a bargain.

    Lamb can shoot and that's about it. KJ can't shoot, but does a lot of other things. This is Lamb's 4th year though. If your in your 4th year, and you are still seen as a project, then I don't know if you are going to make it.

    I thought Lamb was going to be a star. He's gonna stick around the league for awhile.

    He's got the physical tools, now he needs to figure out how to maximize them. Fortunately the guy is only 23, and has no real injury issues.
