Doron Lamb Has His Own Dance
Last year about this time, John Wall, after months of anticipation, burst onto the scene as a Kentucky Wildcat at the school’s Big Blue Madness celebration. While everyone who has an interest in college basketball had their eye on Wall, the freshman point guard added something to his introduction that made his “phenom star” shine that much brighter: the John Wall Dance. With a little pop of his arms and wrists, the move became Wall’s signature and also, something of a craze.
With that in mind, it’s no surprise to hear another highly-regarded Kentucky freshman, Doron Lamb, has a dance of his own he plans on debuting during the team’s introduction.
“I already got it down pat,” Lamb said. “Some of (my teammates) have already seen it in the locker room. I’m just waiting to bring it out.”
While it’s unlikely Lamb’s dance catches on like Wall’s, at least, on a nationwide basis — his popularity quotient isn’t nearly as high as Wall’s was last season — as a Kentucky fan, I have to say I’m looking forward to it.
While I find most trends either silly or annoying, I actually enjoy seeing all this youthful enthusiasm from the players. There’s nothing wrong with having a little fun, not to mention, trying to make lightening strike twice. As long as Lamb’s dance doesn’t involve flexing your biceps and popping your fist back and forth, it’ll work, if, for no one else, the Kentucky fans who are dying for basketball season to start.
