Kyle Kuzma showed a little bit of his trademark confidence when asked Monday night about his recent excellent play. Has he had a stretch like this before during his short time in the NBA? “I think so,” Kuzma said. “I mean, last year at least half the season I was pretty damn good.” That’s also...

LeBron James has no qualms with Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant expressing their fears over his usage, even if the Los Angeles Lakers star is happy to take on the bulk of the workload. The Lakers are trying to manage the 33-year-old's time on court with a view to keeping their off-season recruit fresh. James insists he sees where both Johnson and Bryant are coming from as the Lakers try to develop the likes of Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma around him.

LeBron James talked up the all-round improvements made by Kyle Kuzma and feels their on-court relationship for the Los Angeles Lakers is getting better with each game. Kuzma has often been noted for his scoring prowess, but has faced scrutiny over the defensive side of his game. The 23-year-old was influential with and without the ball in Sunday's 120-96 victory over the Phoenix Suns, though, contributing a game-high 23 points, while also adding eight rebounds, three assists and a block.

When he really needs the help, Kyle Kuzma will text Luke Walton at all hours of the night to ask about how he could have been better at one defensive assignment or another. “I haven’t in a minute,” Kuzma said. “I’ve been playing good defense, that’s why.” The two things the Lakers talk about constantly...

We were giving...

This season in Los Angeles is in large part about finding which players in the Lakers’ young core can fit with LeBron James. Josh Hart and Kyle Kuzma are finishers and fit naturally and quickly next to an all-time great playmaker. It’s been more of a process with Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, guys who had the ball in their hands last season and are having to adjust this season.

With the Lakers down one at home and just :21 seconds left in the game, LeBron James drove the lane and was fouled by rookie Omari Spellman. Then LeBron missed the second free throw, too. The Lakers escaped with the win thanks to Kyle Kuzma keeping the ball alive with offensive rebounds, eventually allowing LeBron to make up for his misses with a putback dunk that proved to be the game winner (aided by a Tyson Chandler dunk).

In case you hadn’t noticed, the Los Angeles Lakers have a cerebral, multi-talented player who is strong as an ox and competes like a runaway train. Josh Hart is something of a makeshift James clone, and he could very quietly end up being the club’s second-most-important player because of the unusual, Swiss Army knife role he plays. The former college star who led Villanova to a national title took 6.0 shot attempts per game as a rookie, scoring 7.9 points and taking a definitive backseat to far more heralded Lakers youngsters such as Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma.
