Andre Ingram played 10 seasons in the G-League. On Monday, Ingram was signed to the Los Angeles Lakers roster for the final two games of the season.
And on Tuesday, Ingram got MVP chants at the free-throw line at Staples Center.
During the Lakers’ game against the Houston Rockets, Ingram checked in and walked onto an NBA floor as a player for the first time. His signing was detailed by the Lakers via their social media platforms, and so fans were anticipating Ingram’s arrival.
When Ingram finally did check in, he got a round of applause from the home crowd.
You stay on the grind and at the end of your 10th year, you finally get the call.
