You'd think that playing next to Lebron and veterans would have helped him, but you'd be wrong. He missed a ton of open threes last season, at the worst rate in the league.
There's definitely some sort of mental weakness in Kuzma - is it the pressure of raised expectations? Is it trying to fit into a new role? Is it the changing lineups? Is it really his shot mechanics? Is it not working hard enough? Is it over training?m
Who knows. But yeah, he shot well enough his rookie season. The only major difference I've seen? Play loose and free. His talent shrinks when he plays tight.
I often agree with you Miles, but Kuzma playing tight is not one of my slightest worries. He’s as confident as they come. He was injured last season as mentioned.
All star potential, Team USA invitee. I, and Colangelo and Popovic, think your assessment of him and his confidence and ability is off.
