D’Angelo Russell and Brandon Ingram make Rising Stars Challenge

D’Angelo Russell and Brandon Ingram will be heading to New Orleans for All-Star Weekend.

In a second straight year, the Rising Stars Challenge will feature two Lakers. D’Angelo Russell is slotted for his second Rising Stars appearance, while Brandon Ingram gets his first taste of the All-Star festivities.

Russell showed out against his peers in Toronto last year with 22 points in just 16 minutes. The young point guard express gratitude towards his da—coach Luke Walton after receiving congratulations.

No word on if Brandon Ingram has thanked the newly crowned father. Ingram seems to be hitting his stride mid-season and will be put to the test against some strong international competition.

NBA All-Star Weekend will take place in New Orleans from February 17-19.
