Its definitely a stretch but I think he's comfortable at the 1 position and he's also significantly more assertive when playing the point. I also feel like Deng has been the most underwhelming players thus far, so giving Ingram a chance to start may change things. It's a small sample size but his production (Deng) on both ends has just been lacking.
You see him comfortable because he has the ball in his hands. That doesnt mean he can be a permanent point guard. Its just impressive because most of us probably didnt know he can handle the rock. That is in relative terms.
If I had the time, I would've posted the videos where he didnt make the right reads whether as a primary ball handler or secondary. His passes are all perimeter outlets. 1) he's a rookie 2) he's not a PG naturally( was he ever the pg at any point of his life?)
Lakers can benefit from his playmaking ability playing the 3 more than him playing the 1, thats for sure.
If lou can play like this consistently, he's way better suited to play the 1(hypothetically speaking). Russell would be one of the biggest beneficiaries.
