Brandon Ingram 2018-19 Outlook


Recommended Posts

I dropped for J Holiday in 10 teamers.

He does have the potential to have 1-1-1 average for the season but his lack of 3s is critical as the competition for 3s, in general, seems higher than ever. With WW constantly presenting all of these upside players, Ingram's upside isn't enough to hold in 10 teamers.

I’m sooo close to dropping this guy. I can’t give him away. Everyone in my league agrees with the LeBron Effect. 

If BI isn't hindering you too much, I would keep him.  But in my case, he was destroying a delicate balance with free throw percentage (this was early on.. say week 2 - 5).  I don't like the way he plays.  He seems to always want to go in head first... and although I admire him trying hard.  He can't hit free throws.. so what's the point in driving that hard?

Yeah when he learns how to shoot FT and get some stocks that may happen.

He's basically Wiggins but worse.

 

the free throws have been a problem .. but hes close to averaging a steal and a block .. he definitely has 1-1-1 potential 

 

ingram is also a much better rebounder and passer than wiggins 

 

lebron has hindered his game thus far, but i fully expect his talent to overcome that once the dust settles in

2 things I'm hoping

1) for him to get traded

2) someone else gets traded so he can have more opportunities

 

But truth be told, it's LeBron who's been keeping him from producing good offensive numbers.

 

The floor is not as open as its used to be when LeBron keeps hanging out at the top of the key when BI wants to ISO or play pick and roll from the wing.

Kuzma is also a better player so naturally that takes away opportunity from Ingram.

Sorry to disagree with you there. Physical ability ain't everything, and Kuzma is way better in the thinking department, which puts him ahead of this knucklehead.

 

 

not really, ingram is the far better defender, facilitator, ball handler....

 

kuzma is simply a slightly better scorer (for now) .. he’s honestly a taller jordan clarkson

 

ingrams potential is much higher

Duno if youve been watching the Lakers, but Ingram has been playing point guard for three years now. 

Great, and what’s their record been those last three years? 

 

Ingram hasn’t shown himself to be as reliable on offense or defense this season. This season he’s worse than he was last and that’s likely due to dips in usage. It’s partly due to the emergence of Kuzma who’s naturally more talented, and overall a better player.

I've kept on talking about the importance of spacing whenever Ingram has the ball.

 

This is the kind of space he needs to get whenever he's attacking from the wing.

2 players on the corner baseline and a legit outside threat on the opposite wing.

 

Notice how Kuzma positions himself 2-3 steps away from the 3pt line for the help defender to have a harder time to close out on him.

Had this been LeBron James

  1.  
  2. 1) he would be standing closer to the 3PT line
  3. 2) very little tendency to catch and shoot off passes

Ingram's length is Giannis/KD-like that he can easily penetrate and get the lift and extension to finish dribble drives.

His length also makes up for his average passing skill as he can pass to open teammates from these situations.

Most of his TO's are due to carelessness, clogged spaces, indecisiveness and not knowing what to do with the ball.

 

Since the Lakers invested in LeBron for the next 4 years.

I'm pretty sure/highly probable that Brandon Ingram is the primary trading asset of the Lakers.

My hope is he gets traded to a team where he'll get a lot of opportunities.

 

That being said, he's a pretty good buy-low target as you can definitely get him cheap - I got him for Wes Matthews + Nic Batum very early in the season.
