Who is Brandon Ingram?

Brandon was the son of Donald and Joann Ingram, both teachers at UCLA. He has two half-siblings, an older brother, Donovan, and an older sister, Brittany. Brandon has explained a large part of his success on the court comes from his brother Donovan. Although the brothers never lived together, Brandon often sneaks to Donovans’ house on the weekends to play basketball. Brandon would go on to state that those one on one games were the toughest of his career.

He played one season of college basketball for the Duke Blue Devils, where he was named Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year. UIL money was not available at the time so Brandon said F this, I’m gonna get paid. Ingram decided to forgo his remaining college eligibility and declared for the NBA draft to make millions. After being drafted by the Lakers, he was later traded to the Pelicans for Anthony Davis. That trade helped the Lakers win a title but is looking pretty rough now.
