27. DORON LAMB
Fabolous – “My Time” (feat. Jeremih)
Go hard today
Can’t worry about the past ‘cause that yesterday
I’m a put it on the line ‘cause it’s my time
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Gotta stay on my grind ‘cause it’s my time
This opening Fabolous verse is simple yet still gets one hyped. Out of the litany of great Brooklynite rappers, Faboloso doesn’t get enough due. Similarly, Doron Lamb didn’t receive the kind of attention out of high school like Lance Stephenson did coming from the same borough. He was the most consistent scorer on the champion Wildcats squad, including a game-high 22 points against Kansas for the ’ship. Lamb already knows how to be an effective and efficient role player, which should aid how much playing time he earns right away at the next level.
28. ANDREW NICHOLSON
DJ Deckstream – “Life Is Good” (feat. Mos Def)
“Life Is Good” right now for Andrew Nicholson. When is the last time St. Bonaventure produced an NBA player, anyways (anyone remember J.R. Bremer?)? It doesn’t matter. Nicholson is about to change all that with his mellow game. The team that likely picks him up won’t be in any rush to expect him to be a franchise-changer out the gate; because “Life is Good” for them too as a present contender.
