This 32-Year-Old Makes His NBA Debut in Stephen Curry's Shoes

Ingram's unusual rookie story - he played 10-plus seasons in the National Basketball Association G League (formerly known as the D League) before the Lakers called him up from the South Bay Lakers for their final two games of the season - made headlines prior to the game against the Rockets, and his performance inspired those who refuse to give up on their dreams.

Andre Ingram is living proof that patience and persistence always win in the end. Ingram scored 19 points, assisted once, rebounded thrice, stole once, and blocked thrice in his 29-minute professional debut.

Rockets: Ryan Anderson missed his third straight game with a sprained left ankle. He also had three blocks and one steal, with his opening game prompting Lakers fans to shower him with chants of "MVP".

Paul said of Ingram's debut to ESPN after the game: "I told him I heard about his story, and that grind is unbelievable".

G League players are paid close to the national annual salary for their services, making it a survivable profession with a chance to turn it into a honeypot if called up to the NBA as a two-way player - getting compensated with NBA royalties during each of the 45 days a player is allowed to be with the NBA team. It's hard to say the Los Angeles Lakers will be forgetting Andre Ingram anytime soon. Lopez said: "To play the way he played, that's the stuff that dreams are made of".

Paul, like many others, was in awe of Ingram's inspirational story, which went viral Monday. "He belonged out there".

The man himself had a huge smile on his face after the game, as he told ESPN: "It was excellent".

"From the team warm-ups, the atmosphere was electric". It was wonderful. The crowd, the lights, it was just once in a lifetime. His recent season with the South Bay Lakers was his 10th in the G-League.
