For a team known for its youth, the star of last night’s Lakers game was a 32-year-old rookie named Andre Ingram.

Ingram spent 10 years in the NBA minor league before getting the call of his career from Lakers head coach Luke Walton – to step in and play in the game against the Houston Rockets.

And Ingram made the most out of his NBA debut, scoring 19 points; his first shot was a 3-pointer that was nothing but net.

Inspired by Ingram’s debut, AirTalk wants to hear your story of stepping into a situation as a newbie, upstart, rookie (you get the point) – and nailing it.
