bull on what? Most starting PG's are comparable athletically. There are a few couple of elite guys that separate themselves from the rest.

Where would you rank him athletically in his own draft class? He certainly wasn't #1.

He's not even the most athletic guard on our team.


Yes and no. I mean athleticism is so multi faceted. In no way is ball elite. At best he's above average. Fox was moreso an elite athlete

But ball does have good straight speed and pretty good elevation. His quickness leaves something to be desired

Larry Nance, Jr. has a sprained right index finger and is questionable to return.

Above average would mean he is more athletic than the majority of starting PG's in the nba. I'm not bored enough to actually go through every teams roster and analyze their pg's athleticism but I seriously doubt that he separates himself from most starting PG's to the point where we'd need to place him into an "above average" category.

 

He doesn't have to be great at everything

I'm not saying he does. But his leaping, size and length are definitely above average. Straight speed probably closer to average. Quickness average

I'm not saying he's elite, or even good. I'm saying he's above average

Ingram maybe more like 3rd or 4th leading scorer on team this year.

 

No way 1st.


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

I think we tend to overrate our players. I see people hype Ingram's athleticism as well and I don't think he's much more than average as far as SF's go.
