Lakers Shock 10-Year G-League Vet Andre Ingram With NBA Contract

Lakers Sign Andre Ingram for the Rest of the Season

Lakers Sign Andre Ingram for the Rest of the Season

"From the team warm-ups, the atmosphere was electric", he said.

The man himself had a huge smile on his face after the game, as he told ESPN: "It was excellent". Although they were born six months apart, Paul was in his 892nd regular-season game, while Ingram was making his National Basketball Association debut. That changed on Monday, when the Los Angeles Lakers made a decision to give him a ring and sign him for the remainder of the year.

Ingram, who holds the all-time G League (formerly the D League) record for most 3-pointers made, connected on his first four shots from the field including a trio of threes and finished with 19 points on 6/8 shooting.

Ingram spent 10 years grinding throughout the NBA's official minor league system sooner than getting the choice up he'd been prepared for. "I suggested him, 'Rather a lot respect.' I indicate, 10 years grinding throughout the G League, to lastly get a risk and to play like that, it's pretty explicit".

The 32-year-old Ingram holds the all-time G League record for most 3-pointers made, and he showed just why, drilling his first four shots on Tuesday night against the Rockets, including three from deep, shooting 6-of-8 from the field, 4-of-5 from deep, and a ideal 3-of-3 from the stripe. All the players, all the coaches. MVP chants [while at the free-throw line], that's just insane.

Armin Laschet, the governor of North Rhine-Westphalia state, where Muenster is located, visited the crash scene on Sunday. At least 20 people were injured, and some of them were airlifted to nearby hospitals for treatment.

"I told him I heard about his story and that grind is unbelievable", Paul told reporters.

Several NBA players, as well as Lakers' legend Kobe Bryant who felt as shocked and inspired by his performance, showed their appreciation to the 32-year-old on social media. Rockets star Chris Paul made his way over to Ingram as he entered the floor in the first quarter to congratulate him. "I've enjoyed my time here, and I've been able to make a nice career out of it".

Ingram's dream night ended with a trip to the ESPN studio across the street from Staples Center for one more interview. Ingram has to somehow come up with an encore in the Lakers' season finale against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.

"They probably let out what I truly wanted to let out", Ingram said. "But so thankful it did".
