He reached the Beko BBL top 4 in Frankfurt that season. Wilson is a 32 year old 204cm forward from Alabama that is an an extremely versatile forward who really fills up the stat sheet. He is a devastating scorer who scores with an array of dunks, jump shots, and drives into the lane. At 6'8" Lamayn is one of the best shooters you will ever find as he shoots well over 40% from the 3-point line. In addition to his tremendous shooting ability, Lamayn is also one of the most athletic forwards in the country with a vertical leap that is nearly 40 inches. Lamayn uses his athleticism to get out on the break and outrun defenders and also to elevate over them for some incredible dunks. In addition to Lamayn's prowess on the offensive end, Lamayn is also a gifted defender who is quick enough and athletic enough to guard multiple positions on the defensive end. Lamayn is one of those gifted athletes who also works incredibly hard on his game. Last season, Wilson played for
