I say all three. He has footwork that i haven't seen in a 19 yr old since Kobe. He is smooth, long, deceptively quick and a silky smooth shot like Durant. He is defensive, skinny, but tough and has all the intangibles to be a defensive superstar like PG and Kobe. When his shot starts falling and gets his confidence going we will see all of these players in his game. He also has a high bball IQ, which puts him right on those three level at his age.

I saw DeRozan drop 40 on opening night, and he's definitely the new Kobe. Volume shooter, nice fadeaway like Kobe, nice athleticism like Kobe.

Anyway...

Ingram strikes me as a Durant kind of guy.

You all are being very idiotic. Well most.. But i know he isn't them now, i'm talking about his intangibles, his skills. Go look at his film. He has every tool they had starting out, but just can't get going because Luke is being garbage. I also like how he's really a guard in a Forward body, just like all of them. KD, PG are really guards in Forwards body. Thats why they can play 4 positions. Ingrams the same type.

Said HE'S BEING GARBAGE. Why? Because Ingram's a guard and Luke is being dumb just like del harris was with Kobe. He should be starting the 2 over Young, JC and Lou. He's a much better defender and he has more offensive skill, he just needs more experience as a starter and imo he be at 12-14ppg if given 24+mpg...but most, like luke are being blind. They're FARBAGE!!!

I see of mixture of KD-PG lite in his game (though he's not nearly the polished scorer KD was coming out of Texas).

My main wonder about him is whether or not he has that killer instinct which separates good scorers from great ones.

It's impossible to tell this early on in someone's career, but I think he has all the tools to be a very good scoring forward for years to come, though I don't think he'll ever reach Durant-status IMO.

Some gems from the article per hngn.com:

"Coming to Nerlens Noel, his addition to the Lakers' roster will surely bring an excellent offensive skill set which will aid in scoring more and let the team stand out as strong contenders in the NBA league."

"... the tradeoff will benefit not just the Lakers but the 76ers will also benefit with the addition of Ingram, states the ESPN trade machine.:laugh:"

OK. I feel ya. He will get it going if Luke play him right. He's a straight up guard imo and will only get to 215lbs. He's tough, but i don't think he'll reach his potential playing forward. PG was a guard starting out and it was stated that having him at that position did him of great justice because it helped him develop at a faster rate. He'd of stayed a guard if Granger never got seriously injured. He has all the tools to be a career 23+ppg scorer, but what sets him and Young PG apart is their defense. Especially being so young how advanced he is. Which means he's smart and tough minded. Now you could be right about the killer instincts. But it's hard for anyone to be on Kobe type level, which he got from Jordan and evetything else.

Off subject, but i can tell K. Leornard worked out with Kobe. His skills are getting very similar.

It's hard to say where Ingram will end up, for the number 2 pick he has the patience and is a team player in the mold of Tim Duncan, he has the length and shot of KD and the defensive impact and skills of a Scottie Pippen. With that being said, he is a little to patient and tenative, he could be the next Wesley Johnson, only time will tell!

It's going to be a fun ride watching these Lakers grow together.

Year 2 he started getting game cuz Granger injury. Year 3, he made name for himself.

Year 2 he was still primarily a defensive player who couldn't dribble.

Year 3 he worked on his handles, which opened up his 3pt shooting despite the turnovers. He also took a step back defensively because he wasn't used to the offensive load.

Year 4 is when he became the player we know today. He took a bigger chunk of the offense, markedly increased his rate of 3pt shooting which continues today, and became a premier 2 way player.

For the first 3 years, you had no idea if he was going to strictly be a 3 and D guy, an athletic slasher, a finesse jumpshooter, or a point forward.

well, to be fair, the OP came in comparing him to all timers....

Nobody expected a kid that weighs 13 lbs to contribute right away. Ingram was the #2 pick because of long term potential. He will take a few years to develop.

Most of you are just fans talking out your butts with no logical reasoning of what i'm talking about. Never said he's at their level. But he has all the tools to get there with more experience and imo will be a 13-14ppg scorer before end of the year. At least 95% of athletes that i've mentioned going to be great have become great.

All i've said is people are not understanding what i'm saying and putting words in my mouth when i've never said Ingram is like them, but i'm only saying he has the tools to be like them.

more like Middleton with a higher ceiling and a lower floor. if he pans out we should be looking at 23/7/4/3sock w good percentages and elite defense. With Randle/Russell I dont see how he can go full point forward, LAL would need to change up personnel for him to get a legit go at that.
