The Kevin Durant comparisons for Brandon Ingram, based on little but body type, are fading now. In their place are comparisons for a new superstar: Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Ingram has been driving to the basket like a madman lately, trying to use his length to squeeze shots through the defense at the rim. Some games it works out really well and he looks like an unstoppable beast. Other games, he looks eminently stoppable. I’m in favor of this development, in any case. He’s not nearly as effective as Giannis at this point, but the stylistic similarities are definitely there.
Contrary to all that stuff I just wrote, he decided to test out some more of his midrange game tonight, with some success. Certainly more success than Giannis usually has, so I guess the KD comparisons are back on!
I’ll throw in some Magic Johnson comparisons to just to make the Lakers fans happy, how does that sound?
