That dunk attempt on Embiid was nasty. DOTY if it went it


One of these days he's gonna finish one. Would've been crazy.


It is a skill to even get those attempts. He is going to do them with regularity rather soon.

Thank God for Kuzma and his fearless confidence. Lakers would be further behind in rebuild if they didn’t hit on this kid. He looks like he will be special, because he has a great skill set and he wants it. Against the 76ers, it looks like he’s trying to prove he’s the #1 pick


Remember when he said he compares himself to Lebron & Giannis, not rookies. He wasn't lying.

It might sound crazy but if you look at his game and commitment, it doesn’t sound so crazy. He’s 6’9”, runs the floor, high iq, competent 3 point shooter, has great moves off the dribble, he’s an excellent shot maker and he just has 100% confidence in his game.

He has a chip on his shoulder. That motivation coupled with his well rounded game =

I thought he would be a bigger Klay, but I have to revise that. He is better than that. Those running floaters of the fast break are ridiculous.

Yea Klay can't do that.. I actually haven't seen a lot of players utilize the hook off the run like he does.

Klay couldn't finish at the rim early on. Must have been all that weed thought.

Well, he can’t exactly shoot like Klay (yet, at least )

Sixers Coach Brett Brown: "The Lakers were sort of on a similar path that we were on, trying to identify keepers, trying to identify franchise-type players. Those two guys (Kuzma and Ingram) I thought are just excellent."

If there was any doubt about Kuzma's swagger, attempting to dunk on an Embiid who was a terror defensively should quell that.

Kuuuuuuuuuz!

Man Kyle has that killer instinct trying to rip Embiid's head off. Not scared and doesn't back down.

Great fundamental player who has an all-around game and works hard on offense + defense.

Definitely a bright spot along with BI this year.

Kuz is the GD man. What a wonderful, refreshing feeling to have a youngster this consistently competent for a change.

Kuzma's steals/blocks numbers are microscopic. 0.4 steals per game, 0.1 blocks per game.

Microscopic? you didn't see his giant scrotum swingging when he went up to dunk on Embiid?

That is such a nit picking stat. He's been a major bright spot for this team.

Offense is his calling card, and we need that now.
