He seems older than he is and he has been very polite and thankful for the opportunity that he was given. And he is a summer Maths and Physical tutor? I believe people are buying the character as much as the story. Then again, it could be 1 week thing.

That's what made the Jeremy Lin debut so crazy. He kept it up until the haters Melo and Woodson took the team back and he tore his meniscus. He's proven to be a solid player when given a chance.

I also thought Milwaukee would be good so they've been a letdown.

The way people are reacting I thought he was 50+ years old or something.


Most players could've quit playing after 10 years in the D League, but not this guy. Heck, 2 years and no call up seems a pretty long time.

Not only that, but he also killed it. 19 points on a great FG and 3P %, with 3 blocks.

After hoping for a shot the last 10 years, he could have had nerves get to him, rush his shots, or even just be passive. Dude took his opportunity and crushed it, it's motivating.

People are looking at his story as inspiring and motivating, nothing wrong with that.

Andre Ingram's story resonates because it's a long time to pay your dues and persevere, and then not only does his realise his dream, but he has a big performance in his debut. It's like something out of a feel good/inspirational sports film, except it's not fiction. It's one of those things that makes sport special.

For sure, and it's what made Linsanity such an enjoyable ride. Lin was finally getting a chance to play decent minutes and putting up all those big performances. As with Andre Ingram, he showed that hard work, patience, and persistence can pay off.

I thought the same thing when I first saw it. That or the old Create-a-Team feature.

LMAO Cavs fans boo Tristan Thompson after he was seen cheating on a pregnant Khloe Kardashian. There was a We heart Khloe sign. PA announcer didn't announce him subbing into the game.

The first red flag should have been him impregnating his ex when they were first dating. I miss Lamar

Trash on and off the court. He was also excused from the Cavs practice because Khloe was going through labor hours ago.

I've read several reports saying the relationship between Karl-Anthony Towns and the T-Wolves organization is not in a "good place". Could there be something brewing?

I'm assuming it's about money - or more precisely, locking down a big payday well in advance of restricted free agency - as everything else seems to be looking up with the Timberwolves.

Devin Booker posted this picture on Twitter. And the Suns GM did say that they were open to trading the #1 pick.. :wink:

It's probably just two former Kentucky teammates trolling the media though.

If the relationship is that fractured and he's on the block, I could see lottery teams eagerly throwing their hat (and more specifically, picks) into the ring.
