Kyle Kuzma was all about trolling Austin Rivers after the Houston Rockets guard had a little incident with LeBron James during Game 5 of their second-round series. The Lakers dismantled the Rockets after losing Game 1, leaving no chance to the Texans, who once again failed to succeed in the playoffs.
LeBron was in that destruction mode on Saturday night and Rivers almost suffered that when he accidentally hit Bron with the ball. Mid-way through the fourth quarter, Rivers accidentally hit LeBron in the head with the ball after a foul call. Bron’s initial reaction was to look for the person who did that and Rivers was quick to apologize and admit he didn’t do it on purpose.
Kuzma was right beside LeBron and he couldn’t help but laugh with the King.
After the game, he took to Twitter to take a shot at Rivers and the Rockets for the blowout loss.
“Still cryin,” he wrote.

Bron was ready to go at it, but Rivers’ gesture and the fact that the Lakers were winning by 20 stopped him from getting in an unnecessary altercation.
Now the Lakers are waiting for their rivals in the WCF between the Clippers and Nuggets. The purple and gold are ready for either matchup with Bron’s killer attitude and Kuzma’s Twitter game.
