    I'm 99% confident that his arms are buffed in those pictures is that he just finished weight training. Good news is that if he keeps it up, he'll be like that all the time and likely have hulky power. If he is too bulky, he will lose speed, but at least he can post up on R.Westbrook, probaly #1 Western Conf. PG.

    He's just leaner, lost 10lbs of fat over the off season

    Interview with Kelvin Sampson, really encouraging especially if you think Patterson didn't look good in the videos. Will quote one thing which I think is interesting:
    Lamb did all the talking about defense, now it's time to do the walking. I am very afraid he will become like T-mac but let's hope not.

    If Lamb turns into T-mac, that will be an excellent draft pick. U do remember that T-mac was actually a great player in his day right?

    read the quote and then you'll understand what I'm saying but to save myself time I will tell you what I meant: T-mac was a great defender, really outstanding because of his length and athleticism. However, when he saw he was the man on offense, he stopped playing defense. Since Sampson says Lamb needs to value defense more, I am worried he will just focus on his offense.

    Not the most encouraging news this week... though I'm sure he'll be fine and back soon.

    He'll be spending a lot of time there :grin:
