Kyle Kuzma has joined the trend of the 2022 NBA offseason, making an appearance at a Utah Pro-Am league called Powder League, going off on the competition. The Washington Wizards forward, like the rest of us, has seen what LeBron James, DeMar DeRozan, Trae Young, Dejounte Murray, and more players have done this summer, and he wanted to leave his mark too.
He did so in a great fashion, dropping 67 points, grabbing 14 rebounds, and dishing 9 assists for his team, putting up a big show in the state where he became a pretty big deal ahead of his NBA career.
It was a great night for the 2020 NBA champion, but some of his peers didn't miss the chance to mess with him, especially former teammate LeBron James and Utah Jazz's star Donovan Mitchell.
While Spida dissed him for not reaching 70, Bron pointed out one of the moves Kuz did to celebrate.
More players and fans commented on the Instagram post that Kuzma shared, showing respect to the player that is ready to help Washington compete for big things in a stacked Eastern Conference.

Meanwhile, Kuz is getting ready to face a new challenge in D.C., showing his quality in a Pro-Am league. Fortunately, Kuz didn't engage in a feud with a fellow NBA player, like Paolo Banchero and Dejounte Murray did last weekend.
If he can keep this level and help Bradley Beal in a very hard season for the Wizards, perhaps Kuz can become that player that looked like something bigger on the Lakers. He has the desire to get better, and if he can maintain his quality, maybe the Wizards can aspire to be more than a playoffs team.
