The soft-spoken rookie wasn’t shy from checking center Greg Monroe, who was pushing a few of his teammates during the mob.
“I know Monroe pushed some of our players, and we aren’t going to have none of that,” Ingram told Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen & Roll following the game. “I know he might have smacked me in the face too, but we ain’t going to have that either. It’s just something that’s not going to happen.”

Most were surprised Ingram chose to get involved with a hulking Monroe being the aggressor, but the 19-year-old quickly fired back on Twitter.
This was Ingram’s fifth tweet this month and the 14th of the calendar year, as he appears to make them count like pun-laced gems like this one.
Twitter’s advice seemed quite sincere, as Ingram stands at a wiry 6-foot-9 and 190 pounds, while Monroe is a 6-foot-11 big man, weighing 265 pounds, a major difference between a cruiserweight to a super heavyweight. Though for a young culture of players on the rise, it’s good to know one of their future stars isn’t willing to back down from an intimidating presence.
