Not good as at the beginning but still for a rookie he is quite good.
His conditioning is a big problem. Its easy to see it during games.
Also his shooting is suffering because of this. Hope he will put some work during the summer.

The irony here is that Kuz is the one that shoulda gone after on D.

Of all rookies shooting at least 4 threes per game, only 3 shoot a higher percentage than Kuzma. Kuzma is also third in scoring among rookies and Simmons is number 2 in his second season. There is a lot of good to talk about. His defense is terrible but he does some good things too.

The raw skills are there. He needs to hit the weight room and conditioning super hard this summer along with refining his arsenal of moves. He's got a lot of ability but many times his moves look rushed or sloppy. If he really spends some time with Kobe this summer it'll benefit him tremendously.

I know, but his mom is white. Just weird when I hear guys that have white or other race parents talk about a certain race when they too are part of that race.

I'm sure he meant it affectionately as a joke even though it could get slightly misconstrued. Travis probably laughed it off.

Luke messed with his flow... But i wont question his motives. Kuzma needs to be a presence without scoring the ball.

Seems like Luke "Sasha'd" him kinda like how Phil broke "The Machine."

He will be, ya. His start just messed with everyone's ceiling for him and rookie expectations/perspective. He still has a really good shot to be a starting stretch 4 in the league eventually....I uh, think we should be nothing but happy about that for a 27th pick

What’s wrong with being a presence while scoring the ball? I get we all want more, but I’d be just fine with him burning the nets down. Right now I think it’s just about better shot selection. Improved conditioning and strength will also do wonders for him going forward. He has definitely made significant strides on defense though. Sky’s the limit.

hey blame that on the white ancestors for creating what they called the one drop rule. thats where what you speak of came from. without that. everyone thats of mixed race would see themselves as that of mixed race, nothing more, nothing less.

Strongly disagree. His lack of improvement on the defensive end has been disappointing.

Playing him at the 3 probably doesn't help.

Probably a 6th man on a good team unless he can improve his D. That is still high value for the 27th pick. Most of those guys in the late 1st round are out of the league after their rookie contract.

For all the people questioning Kuz, how about we trade him like our other guys & watch him flourish somewhere else? I'm sure they'll be plenty of takers.

Starting at SF has not agreed with him. I think his legs are shot at this point.

Yup, he hit the rookie wall around Xmas. So did Tatum. It happens.

I still think he has future 6MOY potential. Not starting material until he can at least play league average defense. Still a great addition to the team.
