He's turning into that one friend who doesn't know how to draw the line between roasting someone as a joke vs. just being (bleep) up for no reason lol

but I guess that's just his thing so it doesn't matter

Kuzma needs to calm down with these roasts.

Better than Kobe or Jordan just punching a teammate I guess. I wonder which teammate Kuzma punches first? If Kuz wants to be Jordan, he'll punch someone like Caruso. If Kuz wants to be Kobe, he'll go after someone like Randle or Lopez.

And videos of Kuzma playing keep away with kids in China, talking on the mic, signing autographs for insane fans at the Nike store, or dunking for a crowd? You know, the typical things NBA players do while in China...

I love Kuz, but he is extremely cocky. He said a few things after games last season about teammates that raised my eyebrows, but I don't need a locker room to be shangri la on a team that hasn't been in the playoffs in half a decade.

I don't think early 20s Kobe had time for that (bleep), which isn't to say it's not worth anybody's time. He had a one track mind back then, and it wasn't until the later years that he started embracing his personal brand more. And Kobe didn't roast or mess around with his teammates anyway, he just told it like it is.

I’m not worried about Kuz on social media. I know he puts in the work to be great. It’s Lonzo I worry about. I’m not sold that he’s more about greatness than he is about Brand.

Agreed. I don’t think Kobe would have been on it much. Kobe is his brand, he never manufactured it.

His oldest son was great in high school and college.
He had a good NBA rookie year.

Some of you guys are showing your age. Kuz is helping the Laker brand among millennial NBA fans which we haven't need to have in the past. OTOH I have more of a problem with Lonzo's Equalizer promos. Dude missed way too many games and needs to work on his jumper.

Just logged in to tell you guys how much I like this kid. I just love cocky players like Bryant, Marbury, Iverson, Oneal, Miller, Jordan - league is missing that kind of players. Everyone are so softy and polite nowadays. This guy is total steal, lookin forward to another season.

Kuzma's potential getting easier shots playing off of star players and with hopefully a full season of Lonzo is really exciting.

He can really shoot it, but had to take a lot of tough ones last season. If he can get cleaner looks, this guy could really take it to a high level as he has the talent.

I was concerned about his shot selection but as the season went on he seemed to really improve at hitting contested shots. Specifically in the last month and a half or so, shots with a defender in his face that would have been sure bricks were starting to drop consistently for him. He's really an impressive prospect.

Because, if its not on social media for us to see.. it didn't happen, right?

I agree he needs to work on his jumper but I don't agree with the assumption that he's not doing that as we speak.
