"I get excited for all our guys".

When asked about Davis' requesting a trade and his thoughts if the Lakers were to land Davis, Ingram replied, "That'll be good for the Lakers - or whatever team that gets him".

"I'm satisfied where we are and at the start of the season my expectations were to be in the playoffs, but given the injuries, you have to see that compromises you". The team is 25-23 right now and the Western Conference is hard.

James originally suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Lakers' win over the Warriors in December.

"The way things are going I would rest LeBron for as long as possible". But his old uniform has been changed to the resplendent yellow Lakers Icon Edition unis - the very same one LeBron made his Lakers debut in last October. Maybe you get a draft pick or something.
