Great Value, Offensive MACHINE
Written by Nba2kGod11
This Ingram card is beastly, an unstoppable offensive force that can absolutely demolish the opposition!!!
Bought for: 50k MT
Slashing: He's got great speed but what really makes this card one of the best in the business at slashing is that HOF Quick First Step badge. With it, Ingram just blows right by slower forwards every single time. Comes with Gold Downhill as well so will feel faster on the break. His Pro 2 tween is really nice as well it's quick and creates good separation for driving to the rim. This man gets to the basket with EASE!
Shooting: 87 3pt is nice with badges like HOF Difficult Shots, Gold Catch-and-Shoot, Corner Specialist, Green Machine, Hot-Zone Hunter, Silver Deadeye, Flexible, and Bronze RANGE EXTENDER! Ingram has that Pascal base release too which is money. When left open this guy will punish you by hitting shots from deep.
Finishing: The ability to finish at the basket is crucial for a slasher like Ingram. Will throw it down on people with his 85 driving dunk. His badges are plenty impressive as well consisting of HOF Contact Finisher, Gold Acrobat, Slithery, Consistent, Pro Touch, and more! He's got the Long Athlete layup package which is pretty nice too. Elite finisher for sure.
- For his position, 82 lateral quickness is passable with Clamps applied(which it can). So once that badge is given to him Ingram won't be a huge liability on the defensive end. I'd recommend putting on Interceptor as well to help him get steals; that 7'3 wingspan is insane!
- A disgusting 41 steal rating with terrible defensive tendencies; 42 strength so if you decide to play him at the 4 he could get bullied in the post as well. So obviously not the BEST defender.
Recommended Strategy: Go to the basket whenever possible with this card.
Use if: You want an amazing offensive SF.
Don't use if: You need a defensive specialist.
Bottom Line: For his price, you've gotta give Diamond Ingram a try!
