The Ingram-KD comp was always misguided, even before we saw what Ingram could do. He's built to be an elite two-way player, not an elite scorer.

His best-case-scenario comp should be Kawhi, not KD. His realistic comp remains to be seen, but talks of Taj Gibson are clearly knee-jerk emotional reactions to a very bad game by the kid.


Thank you.


He will not reach Kawhi's level.

I don't necessarily disagree with you, it's a long shot. But he should be climbing the stairs of that building, not the KD building. That's what my post is saying.

please do!! Dude he will be be a leonard or KD!!! Watch some of their films from first 3 years. Yes ingram will be ok... but not KD or Leonard. Time for lakers fans to bring down their expectations. I know it hurts but lets look at films. He didn’t have the elite killer instinct. Just the length..

You're literally the only person comparing him to KD just to say he isn't going to be KD. You familiar with the straw-man fallacy?

I hope you are right but he is no where near the player Kawhi was at the same age.

That was never me man. I thought trading gasol was a big mistake. Yess aingram will be ok, maybe borderline all star, but never great!! Remember lakers passed up offfer on prime time PG for him! Now that was a mistake.

Let's be honest. Team cannot shoot. Once it is obvious the Lakers aren't hitting their 3s, defenses just collapse. Too often Randle, Ingram are just passing up open shots to try and drive to the hoop. Sign some shooters in the off season.

I was off the Ingram train back when he scored 25. At best t prince. And that's not a bad thing. And he's probably 3 - 5 years away. Don't think Lakers want to wait that long.

One of the most disgusting games i've seen ever.

All these players should stick their heads in buckets of mud and never come out again.

How can someone justify such atrocity against half of the worst team in the league starters?

I agree with this. I wouldn't make anyone safe on this roster. Not Ball, not Ingram not Kuzma. When you have this type of a performance you have to question the players heart, commitment and seriousness and additude. It appears they're all prima donas and not one has a chance to be a star.

The team overlooked and disrespected the Magic. That's why they got their heads handed back to them on a platter. Their are no easy games in the NBA.

Fortunately it's only one game. The team has won 8 out of the last 12 games. There is still time to regroup and refocus before we return to Staples.

I think all the latest trade talk has effected this team royally. Some new developments or something. They just completely lost the moxy they had going in their last winstreak.
