Kuzma keeps trying to be Klay Thompson jacking up all those 3s, too bad he doesn’t have that kind of range. He needs to be more of a T-Mac type of player getting to the rim and shooting inside the arc

I still think he's going to be a really good player, even though he was a bit over-hyped. The national media thinks he's far and away better than Ball and Ingram.

Hopefully a new coaching staff will develop him properly and define a role for him that's appropriate for his skillset. Early in the season he was misused and put in a position to fail.

What the (bleep) happened to this kid's shot? It used go be pure, and sometimes still is. The sheer number of open 3s he's missed this year is bizarre.

Ceballos if he's smart. His game is inside 10 feet

i mean we’ve had less skilled, less talented players on the rosters over the years but KUZ has to be the one of the worst i’ve seen. Sacre, mbenga, madsen wouldn’t have enough time on the floor to have such a negative impact like not playing defense 10 possessions in a row or missing 9 3-pointers. Guys just been cruising with a green light at 35 mpg for two seasons. Not even smush parker level. Got to the playoffs twice with him starting.

At least Clarkson would put up numbers while losing. Kuzma just embarrassing himself out there

Kuzma is all about getting paid that $20mm per season

I know you guys love him here but I’d be trading him this summer especially if we get Jimmy Butler.

BI is a Laker for life..the franchise would not make that mistake....I've been saying that for over a year now.
Magic does not want to be known as the one that traded Brandon Ingram

If he's healthy, BI is truly going to be special. Cant wait

to be fair I think he's trying out and trying to be different things each game since the games don't mean anything at this point.

a few games he had high assists, a game he got to the line 10 times, and the last game he just trying to shoot a bunch of 3's

even the percentages aren't great he still got close to his scoring avg except for the games he got high assist numbers

Kuz hasn't been the same since the ankle injury. Further with no one left healthy defenses are gearing up to stop him. He is what he is, which is a versatile scorer but best as a complimentary player.

Maybe $20 mil over 5 seasons.

Sad tbh.

Guys like Hart and Kuzma have a bad stretch due to playing while hurt and everyone wants to (bleep) on them.

Not to mention kicking Lonzo and BI when they're down due to serious injuries. That's the internet though - it makes bullies and idiots out of just about all of us sometimes.

Enough people who have lived the NBA life for real have sung enough praises of Kuz for me to be patient and hopeful.

I like Kuzma and he is fact my favorite current Laker. Like BI he would be better off playing SF, but has to play out of position at PF.
