Kyle Kuzma and LeBron James have been teammates for a few years now, and have won a championship together during the 2019-20 season. They have a fairly good relationship, and Kyle Kuzma has always spoken highly about James.

Recently, Kyle Kuzma commented on one of his passing highlights and praised LeBron James while doing it. Kuzma claimed that he's been watching LeBron James for years. That could explain the way that Kyle Kuzma misdirected his defender while throwing a pass to his teammate.

LeBron James is one of the best passers to grace the court, and he led the league in assists last season. It seems like some of that playmaking ability is rubbing off on Kyle Kuzma, who is a promising young talent himself. If Kyle Kuzma keeps soaking up knowledge from LeBron James, then perhaps he could continue to develop. Kuzma is a combo forward who is also a solid scorer. With LeBron James, everyone on the team has to step up, and Kyle Kuzma is one of the people that need to keep the offense afloat until Anthony Davis and LeBron James return from injury.

The Los Angeles Lakers recently lost their matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers, but despite that disheartening defeat, the remaining players on the roster should be able to get some wins in the future. Hopefully, we continue to see players step up. It seems likely that Kyle Kuzma will be somebody who could provide some firepower and playmaking ability for the roster and keep them steady until the playoffs.
