Kyle Kuzma is stepping up in a major way Lakers currently have 2 proven stars in LeBron James & Anthony Davis.
Kuzma has shown flashes of being that third star that could push them above the fold.
“I don’t feel no pressure, but I believe that I am capable of being that superstar,” Kuzma said to ESPN. “I put a lot of work in. My progress through my journey shows that I can be there. I developed every single year, dating back to college, and I don’t see that development stunting at all.”
Kuzma also stated, “Last year I didn’t shoot the ball well, and I still averaged almost 20ppg. If I can shoot the ball well and keep developing the facets of my game defensively, I don’t see why I can’t.” Be that third piece to complete the big 3.
He can reach that level this year with the challenge of helping team USA compete in the FIBA Sports World Cup.
Lakers have a young player who is looking to take his game to next level.
