    Let's not fall for Kuzmasanity, especially not in the preseason. A lot of those floaters aren't going in during real games. Still some nice moves regardless.

    He can hit open shots and makes floaters, but he also didn't show any high level dribbling, passing, or 1v1 ability. I think Lakers fans are just happy when their players aren't tape recording each other and putting it on the internet.

    Maybe he was expecting a thread title more along the lines of "So we're just gonna ignore the monster preseason Kyle Kuzma is having?"

    Not sold. He took two long 2s in a row right at the beginning. Bad habit. ;)

    Okay, maybe he's what we hoped DMo could be. A faster, smoother big man who can post up and shoot the 3.

    Seriously, I just hope the Lakers don't become relevant again.

    No black man is angry this often on a basketball forum. I'm beginning to think you're a 13yr old, suburban white troll.

    I need some proof you are actually black.

    Kuzmasanity is half derived from everyone who wants Lonzo to fail (he won't).

    Kyle Kuzma is a terrific player.

    He reminds me of Shawn Marion when Marion first came into the NBA. Marion was a far more explosive athlete, but Kuzma is far more skilled than Marion.

    Kuzma slipped my radar because I'm not a professional NBA scout who looked at every player including him. But had I seen him play in college, I would have proclaimed him the best forward in the draft over even Jayson Tatum.

    In my opinion, the Lakers actually drafted correctly at both spots. It just so happens that the #27 pick Kuzma should have been drafted #2 overall and the #2 pick Ball should have been drafted at #27 in Kuzma's place!

    It's going to be a bumpy rookie year, but he's going to be a good player.

    It's bumpy because he is running all over Lonzo.
