Did you know that if Brandon Ingram’s last name was actually DeIngram, and then you rearranged the letters in his name, you would get the word “midrange”? That’s pretty creepy to start with, right? Now, what if I told you that Ingram made about a million midrange jumpshots in this game alone, and that shots from that area are a major component of his game? All of a sudden, the unsettling but innocuous anagram of his name goes from a three on the spooky scale all the way up to ten. Are creepypastas still a thing that people care about? If so, somebody (maybe me) should write a creepypasta about this. It’s like that part in Harry Potter when you find out Lord Voldemort is actually Tom Riddle.
Spooky anagrams aside, you can see from this video that DeIngram is long and tall enough to get his midrange pull-up jimbos over most defenders as long as they aren’t center-sized. You would expect his skinniness to work against him there as it would be easy to knock him off-balance, but he’s still shooting a credible 40%-ish from midrange. There are a lot of so-called “midrange specialists” who shoot way worse than that.
