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.

Aramco, Total to build $9bn Saudi petchem complex
Iraq displaced Saudi Arabia for the first time on an annual basis in 2017, data compiled by Reuters showed. Global venture capital firm Sequoia Capital may target raising $650-700 million.

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".

USA approves $300m guided missile sale to Qatar
Trump cast Qatar's military purchases as part of an economy-juicing opportunity for the U.S. The emir met US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis on Monday and is due to meet Trump on Tuesday.

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.

UN Yemen envoy to conclude region tour in Saudi Arabia
He said Saudi forces also intercepted two missiles in the southern Jizan and Najran provinces close to the border with Yemen. The Houthis have stepped up ballistic missile attacks on the kingdom in what it says is retaliation for the air raids.

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.
