Former Los Angeles Lakers guard Andre Ingram just brought home crazy money, but it wasn’t from his NBA or G League careers. The South Bay Lakers player was the winner of Friday’s episode of ‘Wheel of Fortune.’ He ended up taking home $31,750, after beating the other two contestants.
I bet he liked the look of that check. Seriously, one of the puzzles he solved to win the game was “I really like the look of this.” Ingram was unable to solve the final puzzle, which spelled out “fierce blizzard.” If he came up with the answer, the longtime G League shooting guard would have added an extra $39,000 to his winnings.
Ingram had a short career in the NBA, playing a total of six games. He played the two final games of the Lakers’ 2017-2018 season and four games in the following season. Ingram’s first game in the NBA was in the second to last game of the Lakers’ 2017-2018 season. At 32 years old, he balled out in his rookie debut with 19 points and four three-pointers. He became the oldest American rookie in the league since at least 1964. He is now in his 13th season in the NBA G League and his fourth season with the South Bay Lakers.
Right now, it’s looking like the Lakers could use some of Ingram’s fan charm. They are struggling to gain the love of LA fans due to their recent poor performance. Blame is being thrown around as the Lakers try to figure out how to fix their lackluster season.
