Markieff Morris believes Kyle Kuzma doesn’t want to be just the third star of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Morris thinks Kuzma has focused on elevating his game and improving every aspect of it.

“Kyle’s doing a great job of filling that void that we need. I feel like last season, he was more so focused on his shot, more so focused on kind of being that third star on the team, third scorer, third go-to guy.

I think this season, he’s just like, ‘I’m just going to go out there and play as hard as I can — if I’m the third leading scorer or if I’m not the not third leading scorer.

Once I get out there, I’m going try to grab every rebound and steal some extra possessions for us,’ and that’s what he’s been doing, man,” Markieff Morris said, via Silver Screen and Roll.

Kuzma is averaging 10.1 points and 5.9 rebounds in 26 games for the Lakers this season.
