Kyle Kuzma shared his thoughts on the Los Angeles Lakers making the NBA Finals, after Game 5 win versus the Denver Nuggets.

“It’s an incredible feeling,” Kuzma said, per SBNation. “It’s a feeling that you can’t take for granted because you never know when you’re going to get back to this. Especially for me, I’m just embracing it all. Me and Alex we’ve been here through the dark days of Lakers Nation: losing seasons and rebuilds.”

Kuzma, who was a non-factor in the series versus the Denver Nuggets, will play on his first NBA Finals of his career in his first-ever postseason run.

“It means a lot,” Kuzma continued. “This is the greatest franchise of them all. Especially when you talk about basketball … so many Finals appearances. To be part of that, it’s history and it’s crazy. Obviously, the Lakers haven’t been to the Finals in a decade and I’m just happy that I’m here.”

The Lakers are going to face either Miami or Boston in the 2020 NBA Finals.
