LeBron James is always supportive of his teammates, and his response to a prompt on social media, on which player will make a giant leap this season, shows exactly that.
James tabbed his teammate Kyle Kuzma to make a huge leap during the 2020/2021 season. Kuzma is entering the final year of his rookie deal being available for a rookie scale extension.
After the arrival of Anthony Davis, Kuzma saw his minutes and his role diminish especially on the offensive end. As a result, the forward out of Utah averaged 12.8 points and 1.3 assists per night.
Kuzma will be part of a Lakers’ extremely talented squad this season. The 24-year-old forward will have to amp up his game to remain with the team past this season.
The 2020/21 regular season campaign is set to start on December 22.
