Stop eating pizza
I would never call Kuzma 'thick' but he's made progress.
From his trainer:
Going to be crazy if Kuzma makes a jump because he was already so good last year. If Ingram improves even a little this year in addition to Lonzo, watch out.
I really do think people/media are really underestimating these young guys, there is serious potential with them and come next year you might be saying how crazy it is to have a superstar join a Lakers team that already has two.
Kuzma can be a game changing threat as he has flashed last season... As of now, he's just rounding out his game. Ingram is our Swiss Army Knife. If we can sign Leonard without giving up either one, we're good. Personally, I prefer it that way. Those three plus James there's some redundancy but you can't put a price on depth and talent on top of it. Not to mention one hell of a good problem to deal with.
Now we just to find a starting caliber 5 and 4...
Late last night
Stop recording yourself training. Bad things happen when you do that. See Dlo and Randle. Plus, makes you look dumb.
For all we know Clint wanted to record this and Kuz didn't care either way? Could help attract more clients for himself would be my guess as to why Clint wanted to share this.
That or keep Kuzma's, Lakers' fans in the loop
Yah......No. Stop showing us your workouts. Show us in games what you can do. Where it matters. We got enough of practice Jesus Sasha Vujacic in our Laker lifetime.
Kuzma didn't record it and he's not playing games right now. I appreciate the update on his work.
I'm personally not a fan of trainers hyping their athletes. Let his game do the talking.
If Kuzma gets off to a slow start, his trainer will look like Lavar Ball... Which us synonymous for fool.
Dude can only get better! Ingram made a nice leap from year one to 2, I think he will as well. I think he will be the 2nd leading scorer this year, behind LAbron. We will shock some folks this year to and be a top 10 team on both ends, maybe even top 5? The switching on this team could be dope if they all buy in as well. Depending on where we land in the playoffs, I can see a deep run to the conference finals as well. But we are a young inexperienced team and that matters, thats where the veterans come in. It's a good year to gel and learn, but next year is the year I'm excited about. The young guys get better, some playoff experience and we get some nice pieces in free agency to make some runs, and hopefully get 1 or 2 rings in the process. One thing though, we finally get to be in the post season! It's been a long time.
Kuz shows us no gym work and people would start saying he need to be in the gym more instead of all these appearances...
Kuz shows us working in the gym with a bunch of updates and people start suggesting he needs to stop showing his workouts because they don’t matter
So he’s damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t
There’s always something to nitpick in the off season
Welcome to LB
There is no damning. Kuz proved in his rookie year as the 27th pick that he would have been a top 5-7 pick in 2017.
Now, proof will be in the regular season and playoffs.
He also proved he could play with pain. Kyle Kuzma has exceeded expectations in year 1. Kuzma is on the right track and that those reason are why the Lakers have him as unavailable.
Deleted this tweet this morning.
Probably was a mistake and he was trying to reach Dwayne, but it's the off-season so... #LAWade.
If Kuzma gets off to a slow start and people immediately think its the trainers fault, they're a fool
Only issues Kuzma had his rookie season were typical rookie mistakes. He has intangiables that you love. One was skills obviously, two, played through pain. And lastly, took consistent rubbing from the head coach and took it as constructive criticism. Those are reasons the Lakers will not trade him.
