When UConn won the national championship in men’s basketball back in 2011, there’s a reason my team name in a Yahoo! picks pool was “Jeremy Lamb – The King of Swag.” The former Huskies guard had as smooth a game as you will ever see from a college freshman, and that helped him exert a calming influence over his teammates during their title run.
Never could I have imagined Lamb had this much game.
As you can see from the photo above that he shared on Instagram, the Oklahoma City Thunder guard appeared in a Walmart catalog when he was a young boy. He absolutely killed the relaxed fit jeans look and probably single-handedly led to thousands of pairs being sold that year. We knew Lamb was a step above the rest when we saw him throw down dunks like this one in college. Apparently that swag has been there his entire life.
