Interesting!


I don't think that's a good thing. They have a habit of pricing their clients out of the market. Smart move by Kuz as Lebron protects his Klutch teammates from getting traded.

The Kuzma/Ingram debate is at least a good problem to have. There is something about Kuzma's energy and readiness to play right away at this level, that make him my favorite. I think this year will be very interesting to see if one emerges as the better player. I think Brandon does most non-scoring things better than Kuzma, and Kuzma does the offense, attitude, and willingness to win aspects better than Ingram.

Now with Lebron, which will excel working with LBJ? Ingram has the tools to become a Scotty Pippen-lite, while Kuzma is sort of a Kobe-lite. Lets hope both players grow, find a way to adjust, and become solid 15-20 point players tamed up with Lebron.


Brandon's a more efficient offensive player than Kuzma is.

Brandon's a better defender than Kuzma is as Kuzma was worse than Carmelo Anthony last year defensively.

Brandon's capable capable of playing the point guard. Kuzma isn't.

Brandon's younger than Kuzma.


I think the general consensus is that Ingram's the better player, Kuzma's the higher volume three point shooter.

So there's that.


Yeah, I found it pretty funny that he put the attitude and willingness to win on the Kuzma side but Brandon. I kinda always thought Brandon tended to at times fall into the trap of doing what the team needed from him for the W too often and Kyle would often go off the scheme and try to get buckets a little too often at times to the detriment of the team. But what do I know.

That story about Kuzma being with Klutch sports is not true. He's still with Priority Sports.

Ralph misses again. I guess he should stop listening to Bill Simmons. Why would trust anything a Boston fan says anyway.

Something has to be said about being able to step up to take over a game, and just all the different ways he did in the 4th quarter alone.

Bill Simmons is rookie Dwight Howard

It's funny...but only if they deliver on the court. Hopefully these shenanigans find their way into a lovable past starting this year...it comes off as hella childish. But I get it...they're basically kids.

Here he is in the drew league yesterday. Doesn't look much bigger, actually looks skinnier. Might just be the camera angle. Drew league competition looks weak but he finished with 18 & 13.

Nah. He has a good trainer Clint Parks. GT saw him a few weeks at the training facility and said he was noticeably bigger.

Saw this on YouTube earlier. Everyone needs to see this video or Kuzma and Hart pranking shoppers in Vegas.

Bump. Bump. Bump.

That's the willingness to win that Kuzma has over Ingram right now. I think it is just a strong will mindset that some people have in the game. Ingram, I think is more like AC Green, maybe a passive James Worthy type. For the most part quiet on and off the court, sleepy eyed look, more quiet leadership than militant up front leadership like Kobe, Magic types.

Can Kuzma play backup center and finish games there?

You know my answer.

Not yet. Kuz, has a bit to go on defense, but his measurables and his determination can get him thereíre. BI might be closer, but neither can stop a true center just yet. Iíve seen BI guard Durant, when they were both playing the 5, but he guards Durant anyways. Kuz plays Porzingis very well, by taking away his space and using his length to alter shots. They both have a real chance at small ball center someday. The only proven small ball 5 we have is Lebron, but he seldom plays it. 2016 vs the Warriors comes to mind.

They have different personalities, but Ingram is anything but timid. He has an attacking mindset and has shown a bit of flair in heated moments. It's just a difference in how they express themselves.
