Does Kyle Kuzma's big weekend mean he's staying with the Lakers? | The Jump

  • Published: 13 January 2020
  • Jorge Sedano, Ramona Shelburne and Clinton Yates discuss whether Kyle Kuzma's big showings for the Los Angeles Lakers vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks means Kuz will not be leaving the team in a trade. They then (3:41) discuss the ongoing struggles of the LA Clippers, and whether they need to change anything as Kawhi Leonard, Paul George & Co. head into the second half of the 2019-20 NBA season.

                I'm tired of non-productive Kuzma walking around looking like a 6'9"
                Macho Camacho. Instead of grinding and refining his game this fool is
                dyeing his hair blond and running away from the ball, get him out of
                L.A.. He looking like Big Bird out there on the court wearing pink

                      Kuzma is a ball chucker and he doesn't play smart. Yeah he's an athletic guy that can get points but he doesn't allow the game to come to him and he forces too many bad shots. It's like he only measures his contribution by how many points and shot attempts he can get when Lebron and AD aren't on the floor. If he can let the game unfold for him I think Kuzma will improve. But if he keeps chuckin' that rock every chance he gets he's just going to be a liability on offense.

                        He played 30 games and only two good games to show for it and they act like is good. He is not that good.

                              And get a stylist to teach him how to attire himself like a mature adult. Kyle you are not a Mick jagger wannabe teenager anymore dude. Grow up KUZ.

                                If Kuzma wants to stick around L.A. he has to play more like a big man also not just a 2 guard.

                                        i think that's cap about Lakers fighting to keep Kuz, I dont think NO wanted Kuz. Probably initially wanted Kuz Zo and BI but I think they really wanted BI and Zo.

                                                  Kuz is being paid 3 mill. No contract can match his talent with the pay. No contract can legally match it to regulations too.

                                                        Kuzma will be big business in the playoffs. The man is like 6'10 scoring like a guard. He can shoot off the dribble and he decent going to the paint. Lakers will be stupid to give up kuzma.

                                                          The biggest mistake in the NBA history would be the the potential trading away of Khuzma; Just as the biggest blunder in NFL history , was the most moronic imbecilic
                                                          idiotic stupefying move , when the Seattle Seahawks elected to make Wilson the MVP by letting him throw the ball , instead of going with the sure
                                                          and safe Super Bowl winning play , of letting Beast Mode run the ball from the 1 yard line !

                                                          Shame on the Seahawks for the political play , just as the biggest potential shame on the Lakers, if they traded away Khuzma!
