During the season there's no down time between games, practice, and travel. His shot was off and now he has the time to go back to the drawing board and fix it. If they play again, I expect to see far better shooting and overall effectiveness, making the team even better.

So how long do we make excuses for Kuzma as a shooter? He wasn’t a shooter at any point in his career minus a strong streak in spl and early in his rookie year.

As long as he keeps rebounding, playing defense, and hitting the occasional corner 3, I’m happy with Kuz. Especially for 2m per year.

That’s all fine and dandy, but that’s not what was being discussed. And since we’re on the subject,.. I’m still not buying this new Kuzma. I’ve seen the man do this too many times. Give me more than 5-6 game stretch before I believe it. Leopards rarely change their spots even if they do finally change their hair.😉

All truth. No more excuses. He's an average shooter that has those occasional scoring outbursts that make us want it more consistently. His focus should be on constantly moving without the ball on offense, and rebounding and playing hard nose, intelligent defense on the other end.

I'm not making excuses. He clearly had no confidence in his shots and had no resemblance of the player he's been in the past. Example: Since the combines, he's known from day 1 for shooting and making running (true) hook shots across the lane. I've seen him attempt them this season without making a single shot. His confidence and ability are effectively injured, or broken. Plus the long season seems to be wearing on him, like it does on rookies. After a slow start when he returned, he got hot from 3 for a while. Now, he has been virtually making almost none of his 3's for a while. If you think that's normal, then you haven't been watching his career.

This year he's been below average from the 3 (29.7 vs 35.7)

No idea when this guy was known as a shooter. He was a poor shooter in college, had a good combine and spl. Carried it over for a couple of months rookie year but has been pretty mediocre since. Down right bad this year. He has never lacked confidence in his shot. He’s simply a guy who needs the green light to shoot to be able to do the things he does offensively. He (to this point) hasn’t proven he can be a key piece of an offense that isn’t just free flowing without structure.

The man is a microwave who adds little else consistently. He may one day become a good shooter but that’s not him yet.

You responded to my post without addressing a single thing I said, except saying he hasn't lost confidence. If you don't see a guy having a tough time making shots and not randomly launching them from outside, you're not watching. The person you call a "microwave" can barely make a shot for some time now, not resembling in any way, the player who has earned "Kuuuz" chants at home and on the road. I strongly suspect that you don't know what lack of confidence looks like in a player because nothing about his play in the past umpteen games resembles his past confidence, comparing shots he used to take, make or miss, to his recent hesitance and inability to score (I didn't watch the last game when he made zero of his 3 point attempts).

Apparently the difference in our posts is that I like him and you don't. No need to keep this going. We won't convince each other.

It’s called playing in an offense that has accountability. Tell me why it is he has the confidence when he’s a starter for AD but not when he’s a sub? Oh yeah because he isn’t allowed to freely chuck. There is a difference between a lack of confidence and simply not being allowed to take any dumb shot you want whether in the flow of the offense or not. Kuz doesn’t lack confidence. He’s shown he’s still the same guy when he’s a starter.

The same claims that he contributes nothing but scoring will continue, but I'm watching his d in the Clippers game and it's excellent after 1 qtr, including a bogus foul of Harrell. Offensively it's clear the team is focused on playing their best and hes fitting right in.



Hi lakersboy a few years back you wrote...I seem to recall a breif tryout in the early 80's with the spurs, I think when Johnny Moore was on the squad. I remember hearing that he walked out of camp instead of waiting for the cuts. Recently I was talking to someone who said he has many of Lewis' games recorded and he didn't recall the Spurs tryout but I remember reading about it in the Times.

I'm currently working on Lewis' documentary and we are searching for Raymond Lewis film. Can you put me in contact with you friend that has the Lewis recorded games? www.raymondlewis.com dean@raymondlewis.com

If you get a chance, can you please contact me via email?

Thanks,

Dean Prator

I got a haircut for the first time since Nov to look spiffy for Thanksgiving. A couple of days ago, I looked like a 70s Dazed N Confused shagger. I had errands to run and was near my local shop and went inside on a lark and they were all in there, empty of other patrons. I said I had some stuff to do and would prolly come back within the next few days and after I got gas and went to CVS for my hydrochlorquine and Lysol, the thought that the barber shop might not even still be there on Mon hit me. Life moves pretty fast. You gotta keep Ferris' wisdom at play in your mind in these times.
