12 April, 2018, 00:23 | Author: Kim Reid
In his National Basketball Association debut Tuesday night, the 32-year old scored 19 points against the Houston Rockets.
It may not have had the fairytale ending of a win for the point guard on the night, as the Lakers lost 105-99 to the Rockets at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but he was still a shining star on the court which everyone appreciated.
After 10 years in the G League (and the D League when it was named that), Lakers executives had a lot of ways to describe Andre Ingram.
Paul said of Ingram's debut to ESPN after the game: "I told him I heard about his story, and that grind is unbelievable".

Ingram played 29 minutes off the bench and had a great game. He also had three blocks and one steal, with his opening game prompting Lakers fans to shower him with chants of "MVP". Ingram's wife and two daughters were there to watch his debut, which he killed it in. Lakers forward Julius Randle called it "a testament to hard work, never giving up". "Everyone was like, 'Man, when you get it, just let it go".
And that was just his first game.
Ingram was the Lakers' leading scorer at halftime with 11 points on 3-of-3 shooting in what was surely a lifelong dream finally coming true. His recent season with the South Bay Lakers was his 10th in the G-League. Houston then took a potentially important hit when Mbah a Moute dislocated his shoulder for the second time this season while dunking in the second quarter.
