Lakers Want To Get Some Meat On Brandon Ingram’s Bones

And there’s only one way to do that, even if it gets a bit disgusting

Most of us have done this: sat down and eaten a big meal and then realized you ate more than you wanted.

If nothing else, we’ve all done it at Thanksgiving.

Now imagine you had to eat like that several times a day, every day.

That’s life for new Laker Brandon Ingram, who weighs about 190 now and is described in this link thusly:

“Brandon Ingram is skinny.

“You can't get around it. It's the first thing you notice when you see the Los Angeles Lakers rookie on the floor. His arms look like brooms, with his hands seemingly huge compared to the stick limbs they're attached to. His midsection makes it look like he's one of those makeshift robots at science fairs. He's just a very skinny kid.”

Maybe not for long at that rate.

Food is one of life’s great pleasures but as Mr. Creosote reminds us, you can have too much of a good thing.
