Brandon Ingram sets ‘realistic’ goal for 2018-19: ‘I want to be an All-Star’
That is realistic for him. He’s got the talent, and now he will have the guidance with Lebron.
Bron is also going to be the captain. His social media presence is also going to boost Ingram in the fan vote.
Extremely realistic goal. Unrealistic would be MVP. All star, within his reach
He'll be a reserve if anything.
HOWEVER. If he preforms stunningly by LeBron and has a huge backing by the fans. He can make it.
But I doubt it (starting I mean). Warriors fanbase is strong right now. Still has international bandwagoners on them.
If he can even make as a reserve it'll be great for his career. But the West is too stacked in that department.
He has to play really well to even get reserve nominations.
True, but we can’t count out the international Lakers fans brought in by Kobe (even though he’s retired now) and now LeBron.
he needs to average at least 20ppg and lakers should be in the top 4 before all star break
It's a good goal. He could do it, but it will be tough.
The odds are kinda stacked against him in the West. LeBron, Anthony Davis and KD are practically locks for the three forward starting spots. There's 3 remaining forward spots in the reserves and plenty of candidates since he has to compete with forwards and centers. He'll be up against Paul George, KAT, Aldridge, Green, maybe even Gobert.
Wouldn't it be sweet for Ingram to take it away from Paul George...
Rooting for this to happen obviously.
Honestly it doesn’t matter that much if he makes the All-Star team or doesn’t because the West is stacked. As long as he puts up All-Star-like numbers I think everyone on this sub will be happy, and I think its a realistic goal. Something like 20-22 PPG, 5-7 RPG and 4 APG is within reach this year.
