Tyler Lamb first played in the ABL as a Heritage Import for Hi-Tech Bangkok City in 2015. The 6’5” guard immediately made himself known as a deadly offensive threat who isn’t afraid to take the long ball.
In his first season in the ASEAN Basketball League, Lamb averaged 18.5 points per game as he helped lead Hi-Tech to the third-seed heading to the Playoffs. However, the Thailand-based team lost to the Singapore Slingers in a 3-game series to bow out from contention.
The following year, Lamb transferred to Hong Kong Eastern to play alongside Marcus Elliott during the team’s debut season in the ABL.
Lamb and Eastern proved to be a match made in heaven as Eastern grabbed the #1 seed after a 20-game regular season. Lamb finished the season averaging almost 19 points per game while shooting 38% from beyond the arc. Due to his stellar performance, Lamb was named the 2017 Heritage Import MVP.
In the Playoffs, Eastern would go on to sweep the Saigon Heat in the semifinals to qualify for the 2017 ABL Finals. Lamb averaged 15.3 points for the series to help his team secure the title in 5 games.
Presently, Tyler Lamb has worked his way to the sixth spot of the All-Time Scoring List with a career total of 1589 points. In his 4 years in the ABL, Lamb has proven to be worthy of a spot in the Final 21 — and he isn’t done yet.
