In a lighthearted moment after UK's five underclassmen announced they're leaving for the NBA, Doron Lamb revealed his intention for getting a degree.
LEXINGTON, Ky. - Doron Lamb had a funny comment Tuesday night after he and four of his Kentucky teammates announced that they'll enter the NBA draft. The five underclassmen are expected to finish out the semester at UK. Talking about that led to Lamb's laughable moment.
Following John Calipari's first season at UK, Daniel Orton, who left UK for the NBA after his freshman season, did not complete his spring semester classes. He later apologized to Solid Blue fans for it. Lamb was asked how difficult it is to continue his school work knowing he'll be cashing NBA checks in just a couple months. Lamb said that he didn't hate school and plans to keep taking courses until he earned his degree so that he could get a job after he's done playing pro ball. After a brief moment of silence, a few reporters erupted with laughter. Lamb smiled and said, "Get a job?" - wondering if that's what elicited the reporters' jovial response. One reporter quipped, "I'll save one (job) for you, okay?".
