Young forward Kyle Kuzma is blossoming in D.C., averaging 13.5 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists on 35% shooting from deep.
But for all that he's doing on the court, it's what he wears off the court that is really catching people's eye.
During his arrival to Monday night's game against the Hornets, Kuz donned a rather bizarre-looking fit that had the whole community talking (even his former teammate LeBron James):
On Tuesday, Damian Lillard took his turn poking fun at Kuzma for his rather bizarre fashion choice.
"Me and 'fashion' going in opposite directions."
This isn't the first time people have been triggered by what an athlete chooses to wear on their body. Earlier this season, Russell Westbrook raised more than a few eyebrows when he posted a photoshoot of himself in a dress.
Needless to say, bold fashion choices can often be unforgiving. For Kuzma, he actually seems to enjoy the conversations that his clothing styles start up.
“Clothing has always been a big thing to me. Obviously, I love fashion and it’s a way for me to put my creativity on the line and also generate a business. Life is all about art, and I think the first impression in life is always what you wear,” he explained, via The New York Post.
"And I always look at fashion not as I’m just putting on clothes, but I’m putting together a story and putting together a look that when you see me, it’s a conversation piece. It’s something we can start a conversation over and talk about. There are just so many outlets that fashion brings.”
Kuzma, 26, is in the fifth season of his career.
Despite being traded by the Lakers in 2021, Kuzma continues to find ways to stay in the spotlight.
