Now his numbers are all around pretty good, but it's in the context of a team that's losing really badly.
Right but how much of that is on him and how much of that is on the team for pairing him with Okafor, Holiday (or Hart), and Moore in the front court?

Of course if he was playing with more talented fowards (hi Zion get well soon) would he have the same space and freedom to produce like this? Or would his inability to contribute on D or to team rebounding be even more glaring then.

Hard player to judge, especially with RFA coming.

Averaging 26 pts on 18 shots, that is great.  We'll see if he can keep it up.

During the draft, he was listed at 6'-9.5".  Now on his ESPN player profile (and everywhere else I checked) he is listed at 6'-7".  That is a big difference in perceived length.  I saw another thread where they mentioned that the NBA is "cracking down" on realistic measurements.  Is he really only 6'-7"?  Is it just me or does this change your perception of him?

Note:  Upon further digging, I understand all height measurements are with shoes OFF (barefoot) and must be certified by the team doctor.

If Ingram is only 6'7" then he must be the skinniest player in history!
