Andre Ingram is a shining example of why you should never give up on your dream. His dream was to play in the NBA and he finally got that chance on Tuesday night.
Every year for 11 years, Ingram has played for the NBA's development league, hoping for that shot, and telling himself, "I think this is it."
On Monday, Ingram walked into the practice facility thinking he'd been cut from the South Bay Lakers after six seasons. Turns out they had other plans for the 32-year old.
Magic Johnson and LA Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka walked into the room and told Ingram that he's finally being called up and will play for the Lakers.
From Ingram's first minutes on the court Tuesday night, he thrilled the crowds and finished with 19 points on 6-for-8 shooting. He'll have his second night with the Lakers on Wednesday against the Clippers.
Kobe Bryant even showed love to the Ingram!
