NBA Comparison: Cuttino Mobley

Strengths: Highly efficient offensive player (50% FG) with an old school style ... Assassin-like scorer (16.5 PPG) in the "crafty" mold ... The mid-range game is his natural comfort zone, but his three-point aptitude has been a revelation (49% as freshman, 52% as soph) ... His jumpshot mechanics are clean and he gets solid elevation ... Shows the ability to put the ball on the deck with either hand, and his aggression level is on the uptick (4.5 FT attempts) ... His go to move off the dribble is a cross over + step back to create space for a mid-range J ... Plays at a controlled pace in congruency with his calm and cool demeanor (0.5 TO) ... No wasted emotional energy on the court ... Shot selection is no longer a concern, as he stays within his role in the offensive structure and doesn't force opportunities ... Extremely active trying to get open off the ball ... Utilizes screens effectively and has a quick trigger in catch and shoot situations ... Defensive effort is a staple ... Makes up for lack of size with tremendous length and moves well laterally ... His projected role at the next level is already defined: a knock down shooter with well rounded skills and the ability to handle if necessary ... Also shows the versailtiy to play the point position in spot duty as he did as a freshman backing up Knight as well as in High School at Oak Hill ...

Weaknesses: Despite his ability to score the rock, the fact remains that he's caught between positions ... He lacks the playmaking ability (1.6 assists as fresh, 2.8 as soph) to handle the point guard spot full time, and the size/strength to effectively defend NBA two's ... Remains a shoot first, shoot second, create third guard ... He's added weight, but must get stronger ... While Lamb is a smooth athlete, he has no eye popping tools ... Explosive lift and extreme quickness are not part of his repertoire ... Not overly inclined to attack the bucket or finish at the rim ... Will struggle to get his own shot against premiere athletes, reliant on an offensive set or someone to create for him ... A complimentary part on a winning team, similar to his current role at Kentucky ... Doesn't have the personality or elite physical gifts to take over a game ...

Notes:
Measured 6'5 (in shoes) 204 lbs, with a 6'7 wingspan at the 2011 Kevin Durant Skills Academy.
