No one doubts former Duke star Brandon Ingram’s talent and he’s been pretty low-key as an NBA player with no real issues - until this year.

He had the notable fight with the Houston Rockets recently, which seemed out of character, and then Saturday turned his back (literally) on new teammate LeBron James.

There’s no doubt that the Lakers have to adjust to the presence of King James but after some atypical things from Ingram, who has always been pretty easy going on the court, at least with his teammates, and some other recent comments by James, not to mention Magic Johnson allegedly getting cranky with coach Luke Walton, you have to wonder if the adjustment is proving a bit rockier than was expected.
