The sooner this team starts treating Kuzma like the star he will become...the better off we will be.

I prefer they keep teaching him good habits.
Then treat him like a star when he becomes one.

I would like to see some 2 man action with Kuzma and Ingram. I feel like these 2 could be very good in PnR with BI as the primary ball handler.

PnR between two people the same size doesn't generate an advantage since they'll just switch two guys the same size.

The thing is, we need to play and start those that Kobe sees himself in...and thats Kuzma!!!! How often does someone get an endorsment from Kobe??? Come on almost never!!!!! Other than Westbrook I cant think of a single player that Kobe said...alright I like this kid...I see something special there, I relate... Well he just basically said all that about Kuzma!!!!


No doubt, Kobe is very selective so I’m sure kuz is pinching himself (or saying I already knew that, kobe ).

I’m starting to think the lakers lucked on Kuzma because his personality reminded them of kobe. They did say how he was amazing in his interviews and sit down sessions. While others were strictly looking on court performance and college tape, Magic and Pelinka were mesmerized by his articulate and inquisitive personality



I don’t think Kobe is shy about giving praise. I’ve heard him make enthusiastic comments about Clarkson, Randle, Andrew Wiggins, Isaiah Thomas, Kyrie Irving, Tony Allen, Andre Drummond, Ben Simmons, and a bunch of other guys.

Kobe also called Luke one of the two best coaches in the league.

Kuz 97%ile on ISO's but Luke probably would have called a timeout next possession just to pull him out if he did anything close to this in a game.

Kind of different than some of the arguments here. It does support the idea that Randle and Kuzma pair well.

My 2k18 always starts with that line up. Why can't Luke? Well actually, I turn off fatigue and run them the whole game. 😂

Thankfully he hasn't had a lot of bad shooting games.
Cuz he doesn't have the defense to still make an impact in the game with.
Too psyched to play Ben?

Thanks to Puke taking a page out of overrated Phil's coaching when it comes to rookies -- killing their confidence and development especially when they're showing real promise.

Kuzma should be starting and Nance should be coming off the bench.

Puke taking him out of the starting lineup has really dinged his confidence. He needs to be starting. He was ROOKIE-OF-THE-MONTH as a starter.

Maybe it's like how Brook sucked against Robin and the Bulls... must be tough to play against your twin
