Video: Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac Lakers Introductory Press Conference

The Los Angeles Lakers officially introduced their 2016 NBA draft picks, Brandon Ingram and Ivica Zubac on Tuesday afternoon. Drafted by the Lakers with the second overall pick, Ingram has some big shoes to fill after being given Kobe Bryant‘s locker at the Lakers practice facility. Ingram, though, asserts that he is ready for the pressure and the bright lights. He spoke about his plans to move to Los Angeles, which include having his brother live with him to “keep [him] in in line.”

In the press conference above, the former Duke star talks about what he’s learned from Coach Krzyzewski and the best advice he’s been given by current NBA players. Ingram, who mentioned early on that he intends to bring vocal leadership to the Lakers, also gives his impressions of his first practice with D’Angelo Russell.

Ingram and Zubac both talk about their jersey numbers, No. 14 and No. 40, respectively, and their impressions of new head coach Luke Walton. And, if you missed our one-on-one interview with each of them, head here for Ingram and here for Zubac.
