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

We probably will see a reduction in rebounds from Kuz now that AD2 is on the team. Kuz even implied that in his presser last night ... but nevertheless it’s been good to see him crash for those boards lately.

Vogel talked about the fact Kuz has great spirit and he does.

Kuz has no experience when it comes to leading a team but I love the fact he is TRYING.

Always communicating on the court and trying to keep the team encouraged.

A lot of that was on display when they were coming back vs. the Sixers.

Kuz shows consistent hustle and fight and what I loved about last night was the fact he was aggressive.

Unapologetically.

The shots will eventually fall, he just has to continue to take good shots.

Most if not all of the 15 threes he took were open.

He's also our most consistent playmaker with LeBron out.

The maturation continues for Kuz and its a joy to watch.

He tied for the highest accuracy from 3 last night. He's exactly the starter that should be green lit from 3 right now unless KCP wants to step up.

Even with ad and bron still out, ad2 coming in together with trezz solidifies our interior presence. Kuz being our most versatile guy in the current active group, should be our main perimeter threat in this stretch at least. He should get the green light so to speak. Of course we have DS, but his hands will be full facilitating and building chemistry with AD2. I want to see Kuz shoulder the load as the main perimeter threat for the time being.

When he gets the ball with 5 seconds on the shot clock I hold my breath.

Lol even kobe misses those shots. The defense already knows you’re shooting and you only have a couple of seconds to go find a good look. That kind of pressure is immense.

Yeah, he's the guy on the team that's least afraid to take those shots anytime in a game and it def. hurts his percentage over time but I like his fearlessness. He makes some though as well and many times at least gets off a somewhat decent shot.

Kuzma may be the only Laker this year to exceed expectations.

LBJ obviously meets expectations, but his standard is so high......maybe if we win the title and he gets league MVP - he would exceed expectations. THT has had some pretty good games, but is not yet consistent and can't shoot outside the paint, so he is not yet exceeding expectations at least this year.

Gasol, Trez, Morris, Matthews, Caruso ,Schroeder, Davis, KCP, that's a big NOPE

Kuzma, boarding like he is Lamar Odom 2.0, making assists, accepting his role far better than I think even the Kuzma haters acknowledge. Playing good defense, staying in front of Steph Curry on switches, not something a lot of 6- 10" guys in the league have shown they can do when iso'd.

If we’re talking about expectations at the beginning of the year, you have to include Trez and THT. While Trez was the reigning sixth man I think he definitely improved in the defensive end and added a mid range game.

Most complete game that Kuz ever had. He really took control of this game . His skillset is like in full display. One of the few silver linings from all the injuries we have so far . Schroder is also running it more under control and has found some chemistry with Trez.

Great effort tonight; Kuzma looked really comfortable out there tonight.
I was impressed by his all-around play and hustle. Even though he scored 30 points, he played team ball and kept the ball moving. He added 3 assists and 5 rebounds.

The way Kuz is passing the ball as of late and play-making is making him Lamar Odom-esque.

Very efficient game tonight and he played within the offense. The play making has gotten much better since Vogel challenged him
