So many new articles on Kuzma today. Hope he has a big game.


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.

This rookie class seems hungry. I dont know if it was being around swaggy but the other rookies were more into being hollywood. I mean JC still says women are his motivation

He seems like the real deal. Happy for all his success.
We're very fortunate to have him. When he physically matures more, I think his rebounding will improve as well.

Kyle Kuzma had dinner with @kobebryant last night. What was the retired Lakers star's message to the rookie forward? "Just work."

Thank God for Kuzma and his fearless confidence. Lakers would be further behind in rebuild if they didnít 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 heís trying to prove heís the #1 pick

Yep, it takes the sting out of Ball having so many terrible games. Maybe he will figure it out sometime.

Kuzma is a true baller. I hope he gets some of his transcendent touch back on floaters, but he was awesome on the offensive boards tonight cleaning up his on misses.

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

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 doesnít sound so crazy. Heís 6í9Ē, runs the floor, high iq, competent 3 point shooter, has great moves off the dribble, heís 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.
