After a touching video of the Lakers signing him went viral, Ingram drilled his first four shots, including three from behind the 3-point arc, to finish with 19 points against Houston last April 10. The Duke product averaged a career-best 18.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season, but he had thrived since the All-Star break, averaging 27.8 points and 57 percent shooting in six games.
Ingram's professional career included stops with the now-defunct Utah Flash of the G League, seven seasons with the South Bay Lakers, and a year in Australia with the Perth Wildcats. 8, Lakers head coach Luke Walton hinted to the media that Ball could be lost for the season due to an ankle injury he sustained in a loss to the Houston Rockets on January 19. Meanwhile, Jackson was trying to point out that such a trade would represent a bad "business decision" for the Lakers, as dumping James after one season would send an off-putting message to future high-profile free agents.
"Well, I loved his attitude", Walton said.
Rescue Under Way as Lagos Building Collapses
Building collapses are frequent in Nigeria, where regulations are poorly enforced and construction materials often substandard. Akinwunmi Ambode said buildings in the neighbourhood, Ita Faji, should have undergone integrity tests but landlords resisted.
It's been initially assumed that Lebron James might be able to transform the Los Angeles Lakers into a championship contender with the help of a few key additions. I think they need to start asking questions like "What are we doing wrong here?'" The Lakers, 30-36 on the year, are in the midst of a five-game losing streak and have basically conceded the possibility of a playoff spot. He was drafted second overall by the Lakers in the 2016 NBA Draft. "But it is where we are at right now as a group and it is our job to continue to come out and give everything we can to get better to win what games we do have left", Walton said.
Although the Lakers' brass is still holding out for Ingram to return sometime before the season comes to an end, the medical staff isn't exactly hedging their bets on that happening.
