He has become a Danny Green on steroids.

Plays solid defense, hits the 3 and rebounds the (bleep) out of the ball.

He is Dennis Rodman with a 3 ball




https://twitter.com/kylekuzma/status/1371883317012754437?s=21

This is exactly what he is

DANNY GREEN ON STEROIDS!

He shoots threes better
He handles better
He block shots better
He rebounds better
He plays better D
He finishes at the rim better

What was Danny Green last year?

The starting 2 guard on a Championship Team

Why cant Vogel see this?

They go on HUGE runs when Kuz and Trez come in

Pull out the hammer and use it

Start Kuz and Trez !!!

Bury these teams into oblivion by the second quarter

Bring Gasol and Matthews in for garbage 🗑 time

Kuz on his recent defense:

“It's pretty annoying when the opposite team is looking down the court & they point at you & they call you up for a pick-and-roll & you just got to deal with that s*** 10-12 times down the court every time. That’s when I started taking it personal."

As you should Kuz. Good for him. He’s really become a star in his role.

Gonna need Kuzma to be much, much better without Lebron and AD if we are going to tread water.

Yeah, need to be a 20+ppg, I thought he’d be our first option but can’t hate cause he played what was given to him/within the game although wouldn’t mind seeing Kuz be aggressive without LeBrow and force the issue, kinda like THT

Kuz, 16-10 is good... if we had AD and Bron. Dude need to play like a first option, don’t worry about missing shots, make your moves, drive, get to the line, shoot the ball, be aggressive

I would expect he’d be excited about being the first option and take advantage.

How have Kuzma’s handles gotten worse? He has zero moves to get himself consistent shots. Ugh. What’s depressing is he was our best player today, and he was horrible.

His handles have been something that has really held him back. He can’t navigate in control to get to a spot he feels comfortable. His off ball catch and shoot has improved.

Kuz isnt an iso player, he's a finisher.

That's where he excels.

His handles are too shaky to iso.

Moving, cutting, running, catch and shoot.

That's his offensive game.

Not saying he’s an iso player, but his ball handling and footwork are frustrating. When he’s in control he’s a good player but often it’s unforced travels, bad passes, or chargers. He’s a good cutter, but not a great finisher.

He should rebound, catch and shoot, or make one move and go.

ISO is not his game. His defense has improved much. His rebounding is just because someone has to mostly.

Not asking him to be a point guard but man everything you said is looking stupid right now.

What are you even talking about?

How is that not his game?

Have you watched him play his entire career?

He excels at the above and he struggles in isolation.

Not sure how pointing that out is "stupid"

And if you are referring to his play tonight, he's the only reason the Lakers are even in this game.

One of the only players actually putting up a damn fight.

And most important 0 wins. We should trade him to Detroit/Orlando/sac so we can get his shareef Abdur-rahim on

Decent game tonight. Nice to see him not just get shot over in the post by a wing like he has the past few games. Didn’t score much, but solid everywhere else so can’t complain.

AGREED!
Kuzma needs to ditch the blonde hair. The "Lemu the Emu" look just aint cutting it.
