I feel he hasn't scratched the surface of his full potential.
everything looked good, except again ft!
That play splitting the double and a slick finger roll? Sick... Played under control. Took the mid-range shot, didn't force his offense and was solid defensively. The free throw shooting was cringe-worthy as usual.
He still remains my favorite Laker despite the inconsistent games. His length and versatility (as well as pretty good passing vision) keep his ceiling a little higher than the typical SFs drafted around him. Whether he reaches that ceiling will be up to him, has to add weight and keep working on that shot, but the skills are there. I’m very happy with his progression to this point, his numbers and percentages have gone up in every single category this season and he’s nearly doubled his scoring average.
Ingram was going to posterize Gasol but Ginobili hacked him... Reminder: ONLY 20 years old.
He is the team's leading scorer right now. That was my expectation when he was drafted #2. I'm happy where's he's at right now and still improving as the season progresses.
Ingram really is our best two way player on the squad. He even sets up the offense from the 3 spot taking the pressure of Ball. I do like his mid-range game. Ingram's misses aren't bad...mostly rim rattlers. Lack of spin on the ball. Only 20 years old...
Oh yeah, when his pull-up jumpers from mid-range become automatic this gonna make out of opposing teams:
Those pull up jumpers!
And that Kobe-esque up and under.
Superb game. Moments of real offensive brilliance. That finger role ala Spurs great George Gervin!! So sweet. An homage.
This seems so obvious .... don't understand all the noise and frustration at his age. He's going to be really, really good.
Impatience...nitpicking...heightened expectations of a fanbase in hell the last few seasons.
If you can't say anything good ..... say it about Brandon?
I know I know he's had his struggles but he just turned 20.
Loving that he has stopped beating the hell out of himself forcing contact drives to the rim so much when all he has to do is get up in the air and drop those suckers from short range at a decent clip. That is looking soooo much better.
Impressive game , loved the hesitation dribble on LMA before a tough finish and the nice rip through move , both in the 2nd half.
Wes 2.0 is gone
Ingram will be our best player in about 2 to 3 years. I see multiple all-star years seasons. I know he'll get better because it's all he does is work, he loves the game.
Thought the exact same thing. The iceman had to raise a glass for that.
I remember that Ingram had actually compared himself to Gervin (when some pundits were mentioning Durant) and I loved that. That was definitely a nod to him. The finger roll is such a great, nearly forgotten move. Big Game James had a nice one in his arsenal, but of course the Iceman had that move patented.
He's ahead of where I thougth he'd be this year. I predicted 12-6-4 on 42% shooting as I thought he'd have more of a Giannis-like progression...
He's where Giannis was in his 3rd year...in his 2nd year. The future is bright guys. Loving what I'm seeing from Ingram.
He'll be averaging 20-5-5 next year.
If Ingram had some of Ice's moves...he'd be unstoppable. The cat was pure hoops poetry on the floor. Ingram is a better defender and rebounder with court vision on top of it.
