How American alum Andre Ingram just became the NBA's best story

Andre Ingram shoots for the South Bay Lakers during the NBA G League playoffs

In his National Basketball Association debut Tuesday night, the 32-year old scored 19 points against the Houston Rockets.

He went on to finish the night with 19 points and three blocks, with the only blot being that the Lakers lost the game 105-99 to the Houston Rockets.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, his 19 points were the most by a Laker in his first career game since Nick Van Exel's 23 in 1993.

After 10 years in the G League (and the D League when it was named that), Lakers executives had a lot of ways to describe Andre Ingram.

"I tried not to think about the first one going down", Ingram said.

"I just felt some electricity out there", Ingram said, per Ty Nowell of Lakers.com. MVP chants [while at the free-throw line], that's just insane. "Just an inspirational story".

McCullum, who fetched 14 runs in the first over of the innings from Vinay Kumar, pounced on every loose ball. Narine's dominance continued in the next over with the young Washington Sundar at the receiving end.

Ingram and the Lakers will wrap up their season tonight at Staples Center against the Clippers.

After a few more baskets, the sellout crowd moved from charitable support to full-throated roars, including chants of "M-V-P!" that brought a smile to Ingram's face. But that didn't stop Ingram, watched by his wife and kids, enjoying the experience.

"Everyone was like, 'Man, when you get it, just let it go, '" Ingram said.

Rookie Josh Hart scored 20 points for the Lakers, who played without injured Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma in the penultimate game of their franchise-record fifth consecutive losing season. He provided a spark as the Lakers attempted a comeback in the fourth quarter, which ultimately fell short.

The American University graduate who holds a degree in physics was all set to head back home to his family after the season ended for the South Bay Lakers. For his career, Ingram has hit 46.1 percent of his three-point attempts, including a remarkable 49.2 percent over the last three seasons.
