  • Lakers’ Brandon Ingram hopeful NBA rookie transition program will help him maximize potential

    first_imgThere, Ingram consulted with former NBA players Cliff Robinson and Derrick Hamilton, both of whom already mentored Ingram during previous summer camps. Ingram listened to former Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar provide perspective on both learning and mastering fundamentals, two skills that ensured a 20-year NBA career, six NBA championships and first place on the league’s all-time scoring list. “I have to listen to the vets and gain knowledge,” Ingram said. “I have to surround myself with the right people.”Ingram already has. He grew up in Kinston, North Carolina, relying on various mentors. His father, Donald, ran a local rec center and taught his son how to play basketball at an early age. Former NBA player Jerry Stackhouse, who also attended Kinston High, coached him on an AAU team. Ingram’s 25-year-old brother, Bo, who played at the University of Texas at Arlington, also plans to live with Brandon in Los Angeles during his freshman season.“He’s here for a job,” Ingram said of his brother. “Just to keep me in the right spots and make sure I’m somewhere on time. He’s there to give me tough love, constructive criticism and help me with my game.”The two also have to find a place to live in Los Angeles, which hasn’t happened yet because of Ingram’s higher priority on offseason training. After practicing with the U.S. Select team in Las Vegas in mid July, Ingram estimated he rested for only two or three days afterward. Then, Ingram resumed training in Kinston, which has included adding muscle to his listed 6-foot-9, 190-pound frame, maintaining his conditioning and sharpening his shooting. He plans to return to Los Angeles sometime next week both to finalize living arrangements and to train at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo. “Just trying to make it the best season I can and develop mental toughness,” Ingram said. “I know there’s going to be bumps in the road. There’s a lot of guys out here that are going to want to beat me up. There are a lot of veterans out here. I just have to fight through it and be the best player I can be on the court.” And perhaps apply some of the lessons learned during the rookie transition program. “It helps. But of course, you never know what to expect coming into the next level,” Ingram said. “It’s a lot of information to take in. We’re not going to learn it all right now. But it’s very important to talk to guys who have been here before in this league.” Editor’s Note: This story has been revised to correct the title of Purvis Short. The information seemed like an in-depth scouting report. This time, the material did not involve how Lakers rookie forward Brandon Ingram can add muscle to his rail-thin frame. Nor did it address how Ingram can improve the inconsistent shooting percentages he posted in Summer League play.Instead, Ingram attended the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program from Aug. 8-11, a workshop the league and players union set up that included guest speakers, panel discussions and group breakout sessions. In what marked the 30th anniversary of the program’s existence, a record 80 NBA rookies learned various issues, including how to properly handle finances, achieve NBA longevity and avoid off-court distractions. All of which could determine whether Ingram achieves his goal of winning the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award in the 2016-17 season as the Lakers’ No. 2 pick. “That’s something that is on my mind,” Ingram said in a phone interview with Southern California News Group. “All rookies want to win Rookie of the Year. That’s something that drives me.” The Lakers have found Ingram driven to maximize his potential as an outside shooter and wing defender after winning the ACC’s Freshman of the Year award during his lone season at Duke. Even if Ingram posted 12.2 points on only 41.2 percent shooting in summer league play, the Lakers also became encouraged with his hustle and willingness not to back down from physical play. Even if Ingram sounded ambitious about wanting to “make an impact right away,” he sounded more tempered about to what degree the Lakers will. After all, the Lakers went 17-65 last season in what marked their worst record in franchise history. Lakers head coach Luke Walton and his players appear promising albeit inexperienced. “We know we’re not going to go out and win 50 games this year and develop that chemistry right away,” Ingram said. “We know it’s a process. We have a new coach. We’ll have to continue to work hard each and every day. Hard work, developing chemistry, having good teammates and a good locker room, I think that’s what a successful season is.” Ingram’s participation in the league’s rookie transition program illustrated his intent to minimize any hiccups. NBA senior vice president of player development Greg Taylor described the 18-year-old Ingram as a “mature, young man” who became “highly engaged” during the various classes. “Here’s a kid that really wants to excel,” said Purvis Short, NBAPA’s Director of Player Program. “He understands in order to do that, you have to humble yourself. He realizes that he doesn’t know everything. He was very open to all the information. I was very impressed.” center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

  • Overseas coach for Sunshine Girls? … Foreigner among three coaches hunting netball job

    first_imgOne overseas candidate is among three persons who have applied for the post of head coach of Jamaica’s senior netball team. President of Netball Jamaica Paula Daley-Morris told The Gleaner in an interview yesterday that the interview process for the vacant post will begin next week. “We have three applicants, and the committee will meet this week to review the applications, and at the end of the review, the applicants will be asked to submit their additional documents, and then we will set up interviews for them,” said Daley-Morris. NOVEMBER RESIGNATION The Sunshine Girls have been without a head coach since November, after the resignation of Minneth Reynolds. Daley-Morris added that the job is open to anybody who is qualified and, therefore, she is not surprised that someone from overseas has applied for the post. Australian-born Jill McIntosh was the Sunshine Girls’ last overseas coach in 2014. “We are an internationally rated team, so we accept applications from anywhere, and so we expected people from anywhere to apply. We have employed overseas persons to coach the team before,” she said. Daley-Morris also noted that her association is yet to decide when they will be naming the new coach, but shared that the team’s preparation would continue until the completion of the coach-selection process. “I don’t have a date in mind, but the committee will decide that as well, and so I have to hear from them based on the process that they are using because we can’t announce it until a candidate is selected,” Daley-Morris said. “But we also have other coaches in place, so we are not going to rush the process,” said Daley-Morris. “The team will begin their training in early March, so if we do not have a head coach, it is not going to stop the team from training, because we have an assistant coach, who is still there, and a technical director, and we have other personnel that work around the team,” Daley-Morris stated.last_img read more
