I projected Ingram would breakout in his third season. Lebron does alter some things, but I also think it will be an opportunity for BI to fill the scoring void that the team will desperately need to be successful. If he does reach his potential, I expect it to be underappreciated because most of the credit will likely go to Lebron (see Irving, Love).

This is a real possibility What if Ingram breaks out this year to an All Star level
what if the other Max player is already on the team.I take it one further what if either Ball or Kuzma also takes it to another level.A good reason to let this season playout and see what happens instead of forcing a trade for Kawhi. Just a thought.


What position is he going to make the ASG in and who is he going to beat out?


Paul george


He's no Brandon Ingram, but I think LeBron James has a good chance of taking George's spot too.


Problem is I think your all star SF are:
Lebron
Durant
Leonard


They didnít do East vs West or SF/PF last year. They did Team LeBron vs Team Stephen and the had guys listed as G/F or F/C or just F.

Iím betting LeBron gets a couple of his young guys in the game this year.

I think BI's life is about to get much easier with LBJ here, and even with guys like Rondo taking a lot of the pressure off him.

I think he'll be in the 18-19ppg/5rpg/3apg level. Hopefully he keeps that 39% from 3 but on more attempts.

What will be weird however, is when we chase another wing max FA in 2019. If it's Klay/Butler, they can slot in for KCP. If KL? Interesting but good problem to have.


Ideally, Ingram, Kuz, Hart & Lonzo all make tremendous improvement and we use the capspace on KAT or Porzingis.

They're all RFAs and will stay on their teams. Fool's errand.

Didn't they do that to see who was in the pool of talent then the captains picked teams? Regardless, I don't think he beats out the talent that's in there. I really like him, he's just not at those other guys' level yet and that's okay IMO.

When I watch Ingram play, I see a borderline bust. Maybe I just don't know basketball but I would try to get as much value as possible for him before he gets exposed next season.

I don't see any bust in his game whatsoever unless he gets injured or doesn't improve.

He is a proven hard worker and has continually improved his game so I don't know where you see bust. Explain?

So he put up better numbers than Gianis and Leonard at his age so clearly they are busts too.

BI may not be a HOFer for all we know, but he is certainly nowhere near a bust.

Yea, you don't know basketball. Maybe your forget he's only 20 years old also. He's already a decent player with his footwork and getting to the rim. His jumper has been improving and his defense is already real solid. People have a tough time getting a shot off when he's defending him. That's why Magic and Rob don't wanna let him go and even Doris Burke speaks highly of him.

I watched almost every game last season. I just see a player who is slow, uncoordinated, low skill, questionable IQ with bad defense and a cancerous play style. The team usually plays worse when he is on the court. I don't think his play style works on a winning team so next season it could get ugly for him. This is just what my eye test tells me and I could be totally wrong, of course.

Yeah. It's an understandable mistake to confuse BI and Ennis. I mean they totally look alike, right?

Mr. GODBE, what you have just said is by far the most insane idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this thread is now Dumber for having read it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

And the beauty is that if youíre right, the LAkers will send him and Stephenson to SAn Antonio for Leonard, and theyíd gladly take it ...

... but youíre wrong though, so it doesnít really matter.
