Maybe someone can prove me wrong with stats, but Kuz feels like the epitome of inconsistency. Dude shoots lights out one game, horrible the next. Here's hoping that he gains consistency soon or we trade him for someone good before the league realizes that he is Trick or Treat Kuzma.

I think that's the thing with a lot of young players though and that's what makes the great ones, the great ones. Consistency.

Why would anyone prove you wrong?
He's streaky.
I just want him to be on fire in the playoffs this year.

Yup. That's basically how Tatum became overrated by the press imo: a really good showing in last year's playoffs. I'd like to see one or more of the young guys to have a stellar showing in the playoffs like that.

Shaq: I’m never trading Kyle Kuzma...He should never be on the trading block.

He was improving his production before Lebron's injury,. Without Lebron, he scored 32 points one game, and the very next one he seemed to be on his way to 50 against the Rockets and injured his hip, unbeknownst to us. He slowed down at the end and finished with 41 (42?). He didn't blab it to reporters, but after his production slid, he admitted his hip was getting worse. After taking off a game or so, he's back in the lineup. Is it fully healed? I'm not his Dr, but I doubt it anymore than I think Josh Hart isn't affected by his tendonitis. Kuzma was growing toward consistency and will only get better next year when he'll be even stronger. Trading before he reaches full maturity would be the dumbest move of the century.

Philly got a 1st rd pick for Fultz who is greatly damaged goods. Apparently somebody hopes he reverts back to his college days.

Too many people (including the Lakers) have seen Kuzma do a lot more than Fultz ever has, and that has value. He's not going anywhere based on not being a matured vet yet.

23 points just in the first quarter.

This is why I would not even trade him for AD.

If they have a decade long stint of bad luck I wouldn't feel even a single ounce of remorse for them.

Cools off? He only took 3 shots in the 2nd quarter and still scored 4 points. Luke took him out while he was sizzling and his teammates stopped giving him the ball when he was brought back in.

@kylekuzma's 23 Pts in the 1st quarter are the most by a Laker in any quarter since the 4th in @kobebryant's farewell.

Yeah he cooled off haha.

And his two misses that were open led to threes by the sixers.

Luke did sit him out too long. But also unless Kuz is scoring he doesn’t do enough other things to affect the game.

Yep, I blame Luke for not drawing up plays for him. Should have brought him back immediately to start the 2nd and gone to him every time until he cooled off. Typical Luke...
