Nice video. Another thing I think we’ll see as Ingram develops his lower body is more explosion coming off of those hesitation drives. He still reminds me of a puppy with paws he hasn’t grown into fully yet.


https://youtu.be/dpUOxQlcdbw?t=2m53s this play is the best example of that. watch him push off of his left leg after the inside-out move to try to get by Morris - look at how little power he generates. how little pop of burst off that leg. More power will def help him plant and pop that leg forward

As an aside, that sequence of moves is probably the best example of an advanced wing handle that he's shown.


that was bad mechanics more than lack of strength - he needs to pivot that foot to point in the direction he's going to explode in before going rather than trying to go with his foot pointing in the wrong direction. right here- https://i.imgur.com/WT1Prdt.png - you can see his back foot, which is the foot he's exploding off of, is pointing in the wrong direction. this is something you learn in combat sports especially, power always comes from the ground up. if you're throwing a straight, your back foot should explode straight, if you're throwing a hook, you start the hook with your foot pivoting, a jab you throw with your lead foot straight. try to explode to your right with your left foot pointing forward and you'll see you don't generate any explosion at all. pivot it to mirror the direction you want to go, and you'll explode.

starting your change in direction with a foot pivot also brings your whole body with it, it creates the natural shoulder dip for you to get that shoulder down and around the defender. if your feet are square your shoulder will be square too, and you're basically fighting your own body to try and make a move.


Great point. But the fix will still require much applied work, because it's a biomechanics issue. Maybe lack of strength is the reason why he can't be explosive enough to properly align his body..maybe it's just reppinng/stretching postural fixes... it will take months to work that out still, not just a think-do thing.

@bbiomechanics on twitter calls this "leaking energy" , we should ask him how to fix it!

You know what, these energy-leaks / improper alignment is probably why he can be a great leaper at times, and on other leaps he doesn't have that crazy spring at all.
Like, pre-achilles Rudy Gay would be able to do a cockback tomahawk every time you gave him the open lane , he would get that same pop, every time, at the drop of a dime. With Ingram you don't feel like he can give you that pop at the drop of a dime in the lane, not consistently at all.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Yj8mUXI-n2k Imagine if he elevated like this in the lane every time..........

"Energy leaks" is a fantastic term. I'm working on a video about his finishing at the rim, and that's definitely an issue.

great vid GT - I think a big part of Ingram's development is going to be deciding when to commit to unleashing those long strides vs recognizing when going into full extension might get him in trouble. Reading his defender more or less. Because while his length is a great weapon for getting around guys, if he commits full extension and doesn't get his shoulders by, he's in serious trouble.

I think his decision-making is the single biggest variable in his development, even more than his shooting. He shoots pretty well on the shots he should take, but takes a lot of shots that he shouldn't. I'm hoping this is somewhere where the "he's 20" stuff has a good deal of validity.

absolutely. he has the skills and the physical tools. even if he didn't develop anything new and just learned when to do what with what he's already got that's, a great player.
