The best feel-good story to end the NBA season is coming from an unlikely place. Out of Los Angeles, Andre Ingram became a viral sensation because of his story and call-up to the Lakers after spending 10 years in the G-League. In his debut against the Houston Rockets last night, Ingram put up 19 points, 3 blocks and 3 rebounds.
Much like his play in the G-League, he threw up five 3-pointers, making four of them and lighting up the STAPLES Center crowd in attendance.
In a talk with SportsCenter, he talks about the struggle of being in the G-League for so long, what pushed him through the hardships and how it felt to take the court in a Lakers jersey. Plus, what his teammates told him when he got the ball.
