Kyle Kuzma Blasts Media For Not Paying Attention To The Miami Heat Outside Controversy: "First Time We Are Hearing About The Heat All Year, Yet They Are First In The East"

Kyle Kuzma Blasts Media For Not Paying Attention To The Miami Heat outside Controversy: "First Time We Are Hearing About The Heat All Year Yet They Are First In The East"

Kyle Kuzma has always been very open with everything that he feels and quite often shares his thoughts on social media. Be it from trying to compare modern NBA duos to rappers or discussing his own game, Kuzma is honest and blunt. His most recent tweet shows exactly how he feels about the Miami Heat.

The Miami Heat are #1 in the East right now but have seen a lot of their success not get as much attention from the media that were more focused on stories impacting lower-seeded teams like the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, etc. However, the Heat have become the center of media attention after videos of a bench altercation with coach Erik Spoelstra, Udonis Haslem, and Jimmy Butler went viral.

Kuzma decided to speak out on the sudden attention on Miami for an outlier incident of the very disciplined team having a moment of weakness.

The fight between Haslem and Butler is going to be a massive talking point for the next few days, as Miami's chemistry will be questioned. We saw something similar at the start of the season when Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis got into a blowup on the bench after a sloppy play from AD for the LA Lakers. Even the Boston Celtics have been through this.

These experiences can be good for teams if they can address the issue and move on. However, if resentment grows with Butler for his treatment in this interaction, the Heat could face some chemistry issues through the most important stretch of the season.

Miami is nowhere near safe with the top seed in the East, with the Milwaukee Bucks and Bostin Celtics on their heels. Even the Philadelphia 76ers are not far off. Hopefully, the Heat can sort this out and play their gritty brand of basketball to secure their seed and have a strong playoff run.
