Los Angeles Lakers rookie Brandon Ingram has been compared to Kevin Durant ever since he blossomed in the city of Kingston, North Carolina.
The ultra-thin sharpshooter from Duke has heard the similarities to the Warriors superstar — but KD just confirmed it.
“First person I can say, that I can look at him and feel like I’m looking in the mirror,” Durant said Tuesday when asked about Ingram after Team USA practice.
Asked Kevin Durant about Brandon Ingram today and he said Ingram's even farther along than he was at that age, really impressed.

Both only stayed one season.
