Mother knows best. Just ask new Magic guard Doron Lamb. When you see Lamb drive and float an arching shot over taller players in the lane, remember this: His mom gets an assist.
She taught Doron “The Floater” when he was a fifth-grader.
“When I was young, I was going to the basket and I’d get my shot blocked all the time,” said Lamb, a New York native. “My mom told me in the house one day, ‘You have to bring your floater and shoot over the big guys.’
“I really didn’t know what the floater was, so she took me outside to the park. She had me doing drills and doing floaters. It worked.”
