It's not as much as touches he got prior to this year's team but if he gets 10 shots, he needs to make at least 5. That's efficient. Shoot 38 pct from three..that's all they need him to do. KCP out here in limited mins looking serviceable and to be honest he is.kblo247 wrote:NippySudz wrote:He's supposed to be great in his role though. I don't know why people keep giving him excuses.

Sometimes, you can be a great scorer on a bad team. That happens. He has to be more efficient with his touches. I will say though rondo freezing him out doesn't help BUT he cannot score 0 in one game, 19 in another, then 4 in the next game. 4 points against the pistons?
Come on man.
I think he has some talent. I don't see all star, but I think by going to another team, he will have room to grow his game.
What is his role though? Until recently no bench player on the Lakers had cracked 25mins regularly, so there was no sixth man. Not him, not Dwight, not Rondo, Not KCP. It took Bradley going down and a 9 man rotation for Vogle to start breaking the minutes up to starters minutes for Kuzma and KCP. And even then KCP hasn't gotten big minutes to the other night since Bradlewy started back starting. Vogle has a problem giving 30 mins to them unlike Lou and Trez get for example. A lot of problems and being great in the role comes with time and shots. He has to give Kuz and KCP the guaranteed time to play big minutes which means cutting the time of Rondo and Caruso to the lower teens
I don't see a trade happening and neither does any member in the media but it goes to show he's not untouchable. Can the Lakers win with kyle kuzma? They have a shot. If they were to get a sweet deal, it would pretty much a wrap.
But that's not likely..they're pinched a little by the AD trade and cap space.

Why do you hate Kuzma so much? AD is barely making 5 of 10 shots, and that's even when you factor in all the lobs he makes. It's kind of futile to continue to engage you on any Kuzma discussion when it's quite clear that it's impossible for you to be objective.
