Jeremy Lamb on life in the NBA, and coming back to Connecticut

(WTNH)–Jim Calhoun’s Charity Weekend always brings back plenty of former Husky stars.

On Friday night, we caught up with 2011 national champion Jeremy Lamb, who’s now with the Charlotte Hornets (and reunited with his former backcourt mate Kemba Walker).

Lamb, who averaged 8.8 points in 18.6 minutes per game last season, said he was happy to be back in Connecticut.

“When I first came here, they said whenever you come back, it feels like home, and that’s definitely how it is,” Lamb said. “It feels like I never left, and that’s the greatest feeling in the world.”

Lamb says he’s enjoying the NBA life, though it’s been tough.

“It’s been tough, but it’s been good, having people to lean on,” Lamb said. “It’s a whole different ballgame. It’s different, it’s fun, but it was what I dreamed of my entire life and I’m happy my dream came true. I’m just going to try and make the most of it.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
