32y/o rookie gets in game for Lakers and goes off!

Lakers fans suffered through another disappointing season as the team failed to miss the playoffs for a fifth straight year, but fans at The Staples Center finally got something to cheer about last night.

Andre Ingram, a 32-year-old rookie who spent 10 years in the NBA G-League, played in his first game and put on a show. The Lakers signed Ingram on Monday for the team's last two games of the season and came into last night's game against the Houston Rockets to thunderous applause. Then, he made his first shot -- a three-pointer -- and went on to score 19. By the end of the game he was hearing chants of "MVP MVP" from the home crowd. 

The Lakers lost the game 105-99, but fans at least got to cheer for something. (NBC Sports
