Since graduating from America University in 2007, Ingram has spent his entire career in the NBA's developmental league, including four seasons with the now-defunct Utah Flash, five seasons with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, and a season with the South Bay Lakers, who he played for this year.

It may not have had the fairytale ending of a win for the point guard on the night, as the Lakers lost 105-99 to the Rockets at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but he was still a shining star on the court which everyone appreciated.

"I tried to not think about the first one going down", he suggested reporters after the game in opposition to the Houston Rockets. Ten years in the D League, but it wasn't like 10 hateful years or years I didn't enjoy.

"From the team warm-ups, the atmosphere was electric", he said. Although they were born six months apart, Paul was in his 892nd regular-season game, while Ingram was making his National Basketball Association debut. It was great. The group, the lights, it was merely as quickly as in a lifetime.

The 32-year-old Ingram holds the all-time G League record for most 3-pointers made, and he showed just why, drilling his first four shots on Tuesday night against the Rockets, including three from deep, shooting 6-of-8 from the field, 4-of-5 from deep, and a flawless 3-of-3 from the stripe. "I suggested him, 'Rather a lot respect.' I indicate, 10 years grinding throughout the G League, to lastly get a risk and to play like that, it's pretty explicit".

"Everyone was like, 'Man, when you get it, just let it go, '" Ingram said. "It was insane. To see the first one go in, I felt good".

The sellout crowd moved from charitable support to full-throated roars as Ingram continued to down baskets.

Ingram's 19 elements have been primarily probably the most by a Lakers participant of their debut since Nick Van Exel dropped 23 in 1993, ESPN reported. "You could feel something in there". He also had three rebounds, an assist, a steal, and three blocks to his name after just over 29 minutes on the court as well. MVP chants [while at the free-throw line], that's just insane.

Per NBA.com, Ingram is the G League's all-time leader in three-pointers made with 713.
