    Congratulations BI. Was my favorite Laker while he was here. Never doubted he’d be special.

    Yeah good for Ingram. He is going to have a great career, I think.

    I predict great things if he can get past the 185 lb plateau

    So this means he'll be a Laker again in 5 years when he's finally experienced enough to help us win a championship, got it. :)

    Its a massive overpay but this is what the small market teams have to do to retain their talent.

    I feel like he's not quite worth 30 mil yet, but I also feel like it's a no brainer that he will be during that contract.

    Any team would be stuck with gambling on that, and he's a guy that is safe to gamble on based on knowing he'll do everything within his power to get the most out of his talent.

    But I do think there should be a rule that players have to weigh more than 180lbs in order to make 30mil per.

    watched this earlier today, I feel a bit sorry for BI. Truth is, if we would have kept him instead of Kuz, he probably would have ended out doing well here too. He is really the ONLY youngster that we lost that I felt sorry about. Always felt like he was going to be an allstar caliber player.
