He needs 13.5FGA to score 13.7pts.

I know he's cool and everything but those are just bad numbers. Especially when you consider the fact that he's not really doing anything on the court other than scoring.

Ingram gets destroyed here when he doesn't shoot the ball well, but he's playing injured, rebounds, playmakes, defends, and is 2 years and 2 months younger than Kuz.

I was expecting a more well rounded overall game from a 22 yo rookie.


I see your point, but FYI Kuz is outrebounding BI.

By a thing margin yes, but not during the stretch I am talking about. Kuz was great to start the season, there is no doubt about that.


First 30 games: 17.7pts 6.9rbds 50-40-77 (31.5mpg)
Last 20 games: 13.5pts 4.2rbds 38-32-57 (28.0mpg)

And Kuz is a PF.

Kuz is just playing tired like all rooks. Transitioning from college schedule to pro schedule is tough for a rookie of any age.

Especially for a team built around fast break points.

Kyle Kuzma Rolls Around L.A. in a '70 Cadillac DeVille

Kool video/interview with Kyle Kuzma!!!

Quote:
Los Angeles Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma was overlooked coming out of Utah. Now he's developed a cult following in L.A. and is a franchise cornerstone.

So is Hart but he still brings it on offense and defense and on the boards. But to Josh’s benefit, he is a champion player.

That is true. However, Kuzma has played 617 more minutes than Hart this season.

Edit: I am not diminishing Hart’s performance in any way, I am just saying Kuzma has logged almost 69% more playing time than Hart so far this season.

Hart missed time because of an injury during summer league. Kuzma has been playing non-stop.

Exactly. Kuz has played way beyond his total college minutes like Tatum. Hart has played less than half his college minutes. The comparison doesn’t hold up.

We are, both can be important bench players for a winning team. It is looking good for the future.

If Kuz can improve his D to average, he will be the Lakers starter at PF for the foreseeable future.

We have 3 GREAT bench players right now: Hart, Nance and Kuzma.

Nothing makes me giggle more than proclaiming players bench fodder after watching them for half a season while simultaneously insulting posters who make claims guys aren't starters after watching them for 4 seasons. Seems a bit hypocritical doesn't it?

As slumpy as Kuzma has been, he's still leading the team in three point percentage along with Josh Hart. They are both playing great considering its their rookie season and considering their tiny salaries. Now kcp, Lopez, Deng... Those guys i have a problem with.

Outside of the Celtics game and maybe one or two others, he's honestly been a pretty bad player overall in 2018 so far. Hit the wall hard, and hasn't gotten past it yet. The ASB can't come soon enough...

He’s been scouted and he’s hitting the rookie wall. Just needs to adjust and keep working.

Yeah, the amusing thing is that he has to keep proclaiming it after every game so we don't forget.

Kuzma has already shown plenty as a rookie to prove his potential. He just needs to keep working hard.

He will be alright. No worries at all. He is going to be a star in this league.
