Andre Ingram calls 19-point Lakers debut 'once in a lifetime'

Andre Ingram

Los Angeles promoted Ingram from its South Bay affiliate for the final two games of another dismal Lakers regular season, and the G League's career leader in 3-pointers hit a 3 on his first National Basketball Association shot. The 32-year-old has played in the NBA's G-League since 2007 with hopes of being called up to the big show. He sunk each of his three free throw attempts, four out of five three-point attempts and six out of eight field goal attempts, all at the ripe age of 32.

And let it go Ingram did. If not for a layup from fellow rookie Josh Hart with just 3:15 left in the game, Ingram would've led the Lakers in scoring.

Paul, who top-scored with 22 points for the Rockets, spoke to Ingram - the subject of MVP chants from Lakers fans - at the scorers' table during the match. His 19 points were the most by a Laker in his first career game since Nick Van Exel dropped 23 in 1993.

The greatest authenticated age for any human is 122 years, 164 days by Jeanne Louise Calment of France, who died in 1997. Yuko Nonaka, his granddaughter, said he put much of his longevity down to a soft spot for Japanese and Western candies .

"From the team warm-ups, the atmosphere was electric", he said. Johnson and West are immortalized with statues outside Staples Center. He also briefly played in Australia in 2016 before returning to the G League, according to NBA.com. Ingram had flown his wife and two daughters in from Virginia to watch the culmination of their work. Ten years in the D League, but it wasn't like 10 hateful years or years I didn't enjoy.

Ingram's dream night ended with a trip to the ESPN studio across the street from Staples Center for one more interview. But in the first half, the Rockets lost backup forward Luc Mbah a Moute to a dislocated right shoulder while dunking in this meaningless game.

With Los Angeles without the services of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma against Houston, the opportunity presented itself for Andre Ingram to get some playing time with the Lakers. "But so thankful it did".
