Lakers sophomore Kyle Kuzma is coming off of a promising rookie campaign, but some still doubt how good he can be. Magic Johnson says Kuzma is focused on proving them wrong.
Even after a season’s worth of headlines and effusive praise, Kyle Kuzma is still somehow a wildcard. With players who come out of nowhere like he did in his first year with the Los Angeles Lakers, there’s a wait-and-see attitude to find out whether the clock will strike midnight on a Cinderella story, or if this is the new reality. If you go by the noise surrounding Kuzma’s offseason, it’s definitely closer to the latter.
