Brandon Ingram Looked Either Very Unhappy Or Very High During His Pelicans Introductory Press Conference And The Internet Took Notice

On Tuesday, the New Orleans Pelicans held their introductory press conference, welcoming new players Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, and Derrick Favors to the Big Easy. It is customary for each player to smile wide, nod, and appear lovable to a new fanbase.

Brandon Ingram did not get this memo.

The 21-year-old is either unhappy about his relocation from Los Angeles to New Orleans or he already found a weed guy on Bourbon Street.

When you’re holding out for a PlayStation, but the last gift under the tree is another work shirt.

In full disclosure, there are other photos in which Ingram appears to be smiling and not looking like he’s at Guantanamo Bay, but I choose not to focus on those because it doesn’t fit my narrative.

And it’s funnier to believe this narrative…

Hey, I guess it could always be worse…

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
