Kyle Kuzma has been in the spotlight recently, despite leaving the Los Angeles Lakers. Now given a bigger opportunity to play, Kuzma has been playing better than during his time with the Los Angeles Lakers. But Kuzma recently came into some trouble, but it was for his activity on social media.
Kyle Kuzma responded to the news of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk paying over $11 billion in taxes to the federal government. He mocked the statement that rich people don't pay taxes, using the popular meme format of inverting the letters of the statement between small and capital letters.
“ThE rIcH DoNt PaY tAxEs”
NBA fans were not happy with his statement, as they felt that Kuzma did not understand how the taxation law works and that just because Musk is playing a high sum for his taxes this year, does not mean that it is proportional to the amount of money he or Tesla makes in a year.
Clearly, Kuzma's comments have not gone down well with the rest of the NBA community. Kuzma hasn't had any response to this comment, and there isn't any indication as to whether he will. But clearly, there is a lot of disagreement between Kuzma and the rest of the NBA world.
Off the court, Kuz may be in hot water. But on the court, he has been much better this season. Given some more minutes, Kuzma has been playing a lot better this season and is making the case for why he should've given more of an opportunity during his time in LA.
Kuzma will probably turn his focus to the court in order to forget about this current interaction on Twitter. Right now, his game is his biggest endorsement. And his current form will be crucial for him to improve his standing in the NBA.
