UCLA Basketball Interview with Tyler Lamb

The guys at Bruin Ball have a nice interview with Tyler Lamb (free registration required).  And it highlights some good points about next year about Lamb and the team.

While we have heard stories of how hard Reeves Nelson and Zeek Jones have worked this offseason, there were concerns as Lamb was not around campus as much.  However, while not around campus as much as some of the other guys was working out hard on his game at home. 

Tyler Lamb: Working on my overall strength and quickness, and just on my body overall. I've been shooting a lot of jump shots every day. Jumps shots off the dribble, jump shots off the kick out, so all types of game related things that I'll have to do during the game.

Lamb was one of the better defenders on the team, arguably second only to Malcolm Lee but he was also the worst outside shooter on the team.  It is good to hear Lamb practicing his jump shot, which even Lamb acknowledge he had a problem. 

Everybody can always have better technique, but it was mainly a confidence thing, I'd say. My first jump shots weren't going in and I just kind of got in my head and it spun the wrong way for the season.

More after the jump.

 

While it is just an interview, Lamb is starting to sound like a Ben Ball Warrior with his focus on D first and more importantly the team is sounding ready.  This off season a lot of the focus has been on 2012-13 but we should not forget we have a hungry team already here. 

I know definitely, as a team, the goal is to win the Pac-12 Championship and make a good run in the NCAA Tournament. Individually, I want to be a starter. I want to make the 1st Team All-Pac-12 Defensive Team and make one of the Pac-12 Teams offensively. I set myself to high standards.

 Go Bruins!
