As the NBA off-season continues, all of the big news stories and free agency signings seem to be winding down. As someone who mostly writes about the NBA here at WTP, I need to find some way to get some content out. That brings us to what absolutely nobody asked for, but you’re getting it anyways! Welcome to Ty’s Top 50 NBA Players!
Every day for the next 50 days, I am going to be counting down a list of who I believe are the top 50 players in the NBA.
Before we start, I know I have been late with these, but I’m back on the grind. Wrapping up the 40’s is Lakers’ forward Brandon Ingram. Ingram was selected with the 2nd pick in the 2016 draft, and since then has averaged 12.2 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 2.9 APG. Ingram is only entering his third year in the league, so he does not have any accolades in the NBA besides making an all-rookie team. At 6’9” 190lbs, Ingram has a very unique build to him, similar to how KD looked when he entered the league.
As for this upcoming season, I have seen many “LeBron finally found his Pippen in Ingram” takes, which is just an absolutely crazy take. Yeah, he is a good scorer and all, but let’s pump the brakes on the Pippen talk. I do expect him to benefit the most with LeBron being added to this team, but we will just have to wait and see. A lot of people are expecting a lot from Ingram, but let’s see the kid play before we give him an appropriate ceiling.
