KINSTON, NC -- Kinston native Brandon Ingram is set to begin his second season in the NBA, but before he returns to the Lakers, he held his second annual Back-to-School Giveaway this afternoon.
Ingram was back in his hometown for this event and he provided over 750 kids from Lenoir County with supplies they need to go back to school. These kids look up to Ingram as their role model and he understands that burden.
"When i was growing up, that was Jerry Stackhouse for me," said Ingram. "Going around and being around him and see him play basketball with his family. It's a dream come true for me to have these kids look up to me like this and having the opportunity to do something positive."
