‘He’s one of the greatest players of all time’: Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma on LeBron James
The defending NBA champions have now won their 7th consecutive game. They often found themselves in a tough situation, but behind LeBron’s MVP like performance, they always seemed to come back.
Kyle Kuzma also finished the game with a big 20-point and 10-rebound performance. When he was asked his opinions of LeBron James, Kuzma said:
“He’s one of the greatest players of all time. You know, he’s been in the league (for) 18 years. Seen every defense, knows every coverage, knows every play that everyone’s running. He knows how to take over games. When you master your craft, you kind of just knows how to simplify things and have a more cerebral approach.”
Do any of the amazing runs LeBron goes on surprise Kyle Kuzma?
“No. Nah. It’s LeBron.”
