Since the transfer of Tyler Lamb to Mono Vampire in the ABL midseason last year, the 6-foot-five forward is motivated to win with his team.
“I don’t have a personal goal, it’s really the championship and it’s really for the team,” He said.
Lamb finished the 2018-2019 ABL season averaging 16.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game, shooting 45% on the field.
Compared to last season, Lamb has the entire year to play this time with his teammates and he mentioned that his bond with his team is important to strengthen their team chemistry for the upcoming season.
“The fact that I got the chance to play preseason and take all this time to become closer with them, and it’s my second year with them [and] it just brings us that much closer,”
When asked about the comfort level he experienced during his midseason transfer, he said that he already played with his teammates before, representing Thailand and he did not struggle to find his rhythm with the team.
“I have never really felt uncomfortable because I have known most of the guys in the Mono Team from the national team,” He added.
The ABL star is quick to share his relationship with his teammates and the tournament they had in Taiwan which he mentioned would only bring the team closer.
“Having a preseason, we had a tournament in Taiwan already I think that’s only going to help and bring us closer and help us get through tough times,” He added.
Lamb will be joining Moses Morgan, Michael Singletary, Ryan Watkins, Freddie Lish, and Preston Knowles in the coming season.
With new head coach Andrej Urlep, the Mono Vampire is looking to capitalize on their local players creating a solid local lineup.
The team finished the season in the semi-finals berth against the CLS Knights Indonesia.
The Mono Vampire Basketball Club will have their first match against the San Miguel Alab Pilipinas on November 17.
