Brandon Ingram 18 Points Full Highlights (3/15/2017)

Aside from that embarrassing performance in Boston, Brandon Ingram has been performing pretty darn okay since the All-Star break. Is he finally figuring out the NBA game? Is this the corner that we’ve been waiting for him to turn for all these months? Is his hair preventing him from elevating on his dunks? How many…

Brandon Ingram 16 Points Full Highlights (3/5/2017)

Now is about the time in the season when I start clamoring for unlimited minutes/shot attempts for the rookies around the NBA. I can’t complain, though, about the leeway that Brandon Ingram has been given this year, and agitating for even more opportunities wouldn’t make sense. The Lakers’ coaching staff has shown an incredible amount…

It’s taken about 3/4ths of the season, but Brandon Ingram has, at long last, accomplished the “Have An Actually Good Game” achievement! Congratulations!

Brandon Ingram 15 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (2/8/2017)

Alright. This is good. Everyone calm down. This is something you can build off of. He’s not a bust yet! 15 points on 6 of 10 shooting, that’s something that a normal non-bust player would do. 5 dimes, a couple of them to Tarik Black which increases their value. A dime to Black is not…

“Hack-a-Ingram” is officially a thing. Note: it’s not “Hack-an-Ingram” because that just sounds weird. “Hack-a-Ingram” is the official name for the thing that officially happened to Brandon Ingram tonight. This isn’t a good sign, when your supposed sweet-shooting prospect is getting purposefully fouled because he has trouble making free throws. He made them both in…

https://www.youtube.com/user/DownToBuck/videos Man, Hubie Brown was going IN on Brandon Ingram tonight. Aren’t these national commentators supposed to be as positive and nurturing as possible when it comes to underperforming players? I couldn’t believe my ears, some of the things I was hearing. I was expecting stuff like “he’s young, but give the guy some credit,…

Brandon Ingram 17 Points Full Highlights (1/8/2017)

Two good games for Brandon Ingram, both leading to Lakers wins? I don’t even know what to say. My argument for him being the biggest bust ever is quickly being dismantled, brick by brick. Actual bricks here. Not the basketball kind. It wasn’t even that great of an argument to begin with, it was so…

Out of respect for Lakers fans and their noted devotion to their team, I will not bring up the similarities between Brandon Ingram and Kyle Anderson, even though I think it is an apt comparison. It is not the time nor the place to compare a prized 2nd overall pick with a guy who all…

DownToBuck is proud to present his latest thumbnail pop-art masterpiece: “Brandon Ingram in Crimson”. I don’t want to give too much away, since art is a very personal thing, viewed and interpreted differently by each individual viewer. Explaining too deeply the mysteries entwined within the thumbnail would ruin the experience. So I’m just going to…

Brandon Ingram 17 Points Full Highlights (12/2/2016)

The prevailing narrative around Brandon Ingram said that he was a raw rookie who would not be able to contribute meaningfully right away. And, if you ask Lakers fans, they would echo those sentiments. They would claim that his current production is what they expected, maybe even that he is surpassing their expectations. I have…
