Kyle Kuzma: 'People Are Underestimating' the Lakers

  • Kyle Kuzma Los Angeles Lakers Kuzma

Las Vegas' Westgate Sports Book put their under/over win total at 48.5.

After drafting multiple high first-rounders to form a talented young core over the course of the last few years, Magic Johnson and the front office decided to make a splash and most likely intend on signing another max-contract player next summer as well. "I don't really see why (there is a need to be) so patient". Where does Rajon Rondo fit in the PG rotation? Is JaVale McGee ready for a larger role?

"We are both definitely excited about the roster and the pieces that we have", Kuzma told ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk on Tuesday.

Kyle Kuzma thinks you're selling the Lakers' short.

Therefore, look for the Lakers to adopt LeBron's title-or-bust mentality, even the youngsters.

The 23-year-old forward averaged 16.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game as a rookie for the Lakers in 2017-18. "And we think that a lot of people are underestimating us".

Among the notable games due to be played in front of a national audience are the Lakers' season opener against the Portland Trail Blazers on October 18 (TNT broadcast), James' first game at Staples Center two nights later (ESPN), his first return to Cleveland on November 21 (ESPN) and a Christmas matchup with the Warriors (ABC/ESPN simulcast). "It is definitely going to be fun playing with all these new guys".

"A lot of people say we got a lot of different people, a lot of new people", added Kuzma, who also is holding a three-day camp for children in his hometown. It is not necessarily always a bad thing. "We are hungry. We are competitive". I'll begin my top three with a late season home game against an Eastern Conference team before heading to LeBron's least favorite place to play in the National Basketball Association. Kuzma is right on that front.
