Lakers forward Brandon Ingram connects with LeBron James at Summer League
The Los Angeles Lakers are playing well in the NBA Summer League once again this year. Although Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball are sitting out this time around, Josh Hart has the team firing on all cylinders with the team liking their chances to win back-to-back Summer League titles.
On Sunday, the Lakers went head-to-head against the Detroit Pistons at the Thomas & Mack Center with LeBron James in attendance. James had yet to make an appearance in Las Vegas or make any public comments since officially signing with Los Angeles earlier this month. Along with James being in the building to watch his team play, Brandon Ingram also showed up and embraced his new superstar teammate courtside.

The Lakers have been a team on the rise the last couple of years with a lot of talented young players starting to emerge as potential stars of the future. Ingram is one of those players and arguably one of the most talented on the team’s current roster.
Although there’s been a lot of rumors floating around about the Lakers targeting Kawhi Leonard in trade talks with the San Antonio Spurs with Ingram potentially at the core of the deal, Los Angeles has a promising squad around LeBron moving forward.
Ingram is as versatile as they come in the NBA and drastically improved from his rookie season to his sophomore campaign. He could take another leap in his third year with the team while soaking up the knowledge and experience from James in Los Angeles.
