Not sure if anyone's posted that article yet. It's good read. Kuzma is by far my favorite player on the team...just came out of nowhere and stole my heart from Lonzo

Great interview with Kuz on Mason & Ireland today. I'm glad we got this guy on our team. He said that three teams were interested in him. The Lakers, The Nets, and the Spurs. The Lakers were on the top of his list though.

I posted this on the DLO thread, but I feel like it belongs in the Kuzma thread too. I'm sorry. I'm not trying to make people made or feel a certain way, but here goes...

Not trying to stir the pot or anything, but Kuzma was on the Mason & Ireland show today and he said there were 3 teams interested in him. I was curious which ones and thankfully Mason jumped in and asked that question. He replied, the Lakers, the Nets, & San Antonio. I know there was a theory that we could have gotten Kuz and kept DLO, but The Kuzma interview changes everything. If we never received that the 27th pick from the Nets, Kuz could very well be in Brooklyn right now.

He did mention that the Lakers were his first choice though. If you guys don't believe me then go download the Kuzma interview. Can't say it's fake news made up by the media if Kuzma himself is the one actually saying it.

Kuzma and Ball have a high ceiling but Kuzma seems like he has a shorter learning curve.

he's going to show more and more consistency as the season goes on

That's awesome. Kobe doesn't wastes his time with just anyone. Maybe Kuz is serious about being great like he said on Mason & Ireland. Either that or they are just out having steak and nothing else lol.

That's what a few years age difference makes.

Kuz is simply the guy right now. One of my coworkers is from NJ and a huge Nets fan and while he likes DLo, he thinks Kuz was the best player of the trade and an absolute stud.

Really pleased with him thus far.

I love it that we have not been wasting our late first rounders like we used to during the P-Jax 3 peat era. Remember when we would draft those damn un-athletic , low ceiling triangle fit players like Brian Cook, Luke Walton and Mark Madsen.

It was so frustrating because we were essentially throwing away our picks while the Spurs were making great use of theirs. We kept trying to reload with broken down free agents while they had Parker and Ginoblli in their primes.

I desperately wanted them to draft Barbosa in 2003 over Cook. I was way wrong about Kareem Rush over Tayshaun Prince in 2002, though.

Oh yeah and don't forget about Agent 0, Micheal Redd- I think we traded our pick that year and I was totally calling for Josh Howard as well as Barbosa instead of Cook in 2003. I also wanted Varejao instead of Shasha. But at least sasha got some run.

Wow - good stuff. He looks much taller than Kobe.

I'd like for him and Zo to spend a ton of time with the Mamba.

ESPN is really trying to sell this game tonight. Two articles, one by Ramona, and this interview by The Undefeated's Marc Spears. I am a huge fan of his game but I never realize how big of a fan I am about this kid's personality and demeanor.

Here's the link. Also check out yesterday's interview of Kuz with Mason & Ireland. Some good stuff in there.

I don't know if this has been posted, but it's a really good read written by a good friend of Kuz.

Kyle doesn't have the handles and vision of simmons.
And Simmons doesnt have the shooting ability of Kuz.
But pretty much the same person.

He seems to want it. So many young Lakers have folded under big national games the past 3 seasons. Kuz and his spin moves have been showing up. Maybe dinner with Mamba was nothing more than real recognizing real.
