Andre Ingram, Lakers' 32-year-old Rookie, Dishes in NBA Debut

James Harden, the NBA's MVP candidate frontrunner, weighed in after the game.

"I think it's less (serious) than last time, but I don't know", D'Antoni said.

He called his wife back in Richmond, Va., and she began screaming into the phone. On Monday, the Los Angeles Lakers finally made his dreams come true.

Ingram's mother was there when he called, and as soon as he shared the news from 2,600 miles away, the two women started screaming.

The Bears will play their first three games on the road before concluding the preseason with consecutive games at Soldier Field. Most preseason games you will not see many schemes being used as coaches want the one on one matchups.

Speaking about his outing with an admiring "NBA on TNT" panel, including Hall of Famers Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal, Ingram said the atmosphere at the arena was "electric" and "just kept getting better". "Two games left in the season (and) they were telling me to shoot everything".

With the home town crowd cheering every one of his touches, and groaning when one of his more experienced teammates ignored to feed him more ball, Ingram scored 19 points.

Ingram, 32, demonstrated at Staples Center the quick release and dead-eye accuracy through which he became the G League's all-time leader in 3-point shots and 3-point shooting percentage. The D-Fenders were also renamed the South Bay Lakers. For his three day tenure with the Lakers, Ingram is raking in $13,824.

Speaking to TNT, Ingram, who works as a math tutor for middle school and high school students during the season, revealed his "bags were packed" as what he thought would be an exit interview turned into his first National Basketball Association deal. "Nonetheless to an individual, all people was like, 'Whilst you get it, merely let it go!' The entire avid gamers, the entire coaches. He's a flawless example of how hard it can be".

An honour I'll cherish as long as I live. "The people supported the effort to achieve the Agreement and afterwards they voted overwhelmingly to ratify it".

So, even though Ingram was only making his National Basketball Association debut Tuesday, the Los Angeles Lakers guard had essentially already paid his dues in full.

He certainly has the admiration of Caruso. "It was insane. To see the first one go in, I felt good".

He could have earned more money overseas, and even signed with an Australian club in 2015. "They had the emotion that I was feeling inside".

Despite a long road to the NBA, Ingram says he's not bitter, rather grateful and thankful for the opportunity.

YouTube hit by cyberattack, 'Despacito' and other top music videos vanish
The report believes the "Despacito" video was deleted or hidden by someone else as a way of limiting the reach of the hackers. Numerous affected videos were hosted by Vevo, though it's unclear whether the hack was limited to a single service.

Ingram's professional career included stops with the now defunct Utah Flash of the G League, six seasons with the South Bay Lakers, and a year in Australia with the Perth Wildcats.
