That's kinda what we've been talking about boss lol..


It was coincidental from what I understand. His knee has apparently really been bothering him. They said it was feeling a lot better today and he was able to prep better before the game. Back to that killa. Get them boards back up though Tiny! The assists just keep rising.

Yea I was thinking the boards are going to dip with Zion and Favors in the line-up. Nice to see the efficiency back though.

He's an All-Star, per Chris Haynes. Nice to see him rewarded for his hard work, the substantial improvement he's made, and a hell of a season so far. #slenderman #tinydog #comebacktothelakers

Our Tayshaun Prince, our Dante Exum, the guy "the Pacers don't even trade for Myles Turner" is an all-star in his first season away from LA at the age of 22. Took him long enough SMH.

I'm proud of him because he's more than earned it, but I'm also a little disappointed that Booker isn't in there. The selection process needs to change.

I hate Luke so much. Having said that, BI was improving every year he was here in spite of poor coaching, and this was just the natural progression of a young player's development curve - specifically one who came into the NBA physically underdeveloped and lacking a lot of the skills he has now. Though the shooting certainly has been the one thing that came out of nowhere this season. It's almost unprecedented.

Booker deserved it over Westbrook, not BI. That was purely a reputation selection.

Brandon Ingram is the only player averaging 25+ PPG on 40+ 3P% this season (min 1200 mins).

For me, one of the reasons why I became a fan of Ingram early was actually how similar his style of play was to Bryant.

Obviously the talent and athleticism (and body type) were all different, but who else is the league today has that style of play? Brandon prefers midrange ISO opportunities and likes to take smaller defenders in the post, where he has his fade-away. He’s not a point, but has enough handles and versatility to handle the rock and play the one. He certainly would be the Initiator for teams with a point guard deficiency problem when called upon to do so. He is a (more than capable under the right circumstances) defender as well.

A true throwback. Looking at his style of play in itself, it’s really the closest to Bryant out of any star in the league today. People liked Bryant for many reasons beyond just style of play, but if you really enjoyed and just tried to play like Bryant, then I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t like Brandon Ingram. As someone who practically grew up on KOBE and emulated everything about him, I appreciate Brandon’s style of play. It’s funny how some of the criticism on Ingram was also used on the great Bryant (“bad fit”, “not efficient”, “ball stopper”, he’s not great because analytics say blah blah blah).

although the unwarranted hate for Ingram here is mostly due to different agendas (I.e. people who liked certain players on the Lakers back then, which triggered an immense amount of unreasonable insecurity issues)

Congrats to Brandon Ingram. The last All Star game that I actually watched was in 2016. Never felt compelled to watch another one since, but will be watching this one👍

Great post. Love BI because his game is eerily reminiscent of Kobe's. If the Pels make the playoffs, I think people will realize the mid-range isn't dead and has immense value in a 7 game series. Analytics will never account for fatigue when the game is on the line.

Proud of the kid. Not even a little bit surprised.
Only Laker jersey I bought since Kobe.

Analytics love him now because of his improved 3 point shot, shooting 40% from 3 on 6 attempts per game, he has also improved his freethrow shooting 85% from the line on 6 attempts per game as well. Those are ridiculous numbers for someone haters said will never be a good shooter or avg 20 ppg, he is a poor man’s Lamar Odom now he is an All star! Lamar never made the all star team.

As far as the fit issues go, listen if BI could play some of his best basketball next to Julius Randle, I don’t see any reason why he couldn’t fit next to Zion and continue his stellar play. Zion is similar to Randle in a lot of ways, only difference is Zion is much better than Randle. BI would fit just fine, seems like they’re starting to figure it out.

People who think BI can't do well playing against Zion are really underestimating how good and multifaceted Zion is. And also underestimating the value of a little patience. By little I mean at least a full two years of Zion's growth.

They should just keep on.
