There aren’t 9 better scorers.
But probably 6-8 of those guys are better players.
Meh, I don't know. With Kuzma's defensive improvement, I think he's right there with any of those guys. It's going to be interesting to see if he takes that one more step that he needs to take. He's not going to be an all star, but he's a solid rotational player and could be better than that, but he needs to be more consistent.
One thing for sure, he's got more threats to his playing time this year than he has at any other time in his career. So if he wants to keep as many of his minutes as possible...he's going to need to take that next step or he could end up being forgotten. I love his confidence, but it's time for him to either take that next step or settle for being a 8 or 9 instead of the #3 he wants to be.
It's the pre-season...but so far, he's looking like he might be ready to take that step. We'll see when the games actually matter though.
Agree. There are times when it looks like he's operating outside of the offense. If you're Lebron or AD, that's fine. But he ain't Lebron or AD. Heck, if he was the solid 3rd option that he wants to be, he could get away with it some. But he's not there yet either.Yeah.
He just doesn’t seem to get the team concept to me. Haven’t seen any Laker preseason games. But man, he jacks at times.
Would not shock me if THT took a significant chunk of his minutes this year.
