Kyle Kuzma praised the head coach of the San Antonio Spurs and Team USA Basketball, Gregg Popovich.

Here is what the power forward of the LA Lakers told NBA.com:

On Gregg Popovich: “He’s my favorite coach of all time. Growing up, I’m a hoops junkie, watching a lot of the Spurs teams, and he’s won.

He’s won at every level he’s been at. So, to be here and learn, to be around him, it’s really great.”

On playing for USA Basketball: “I got the call from USAB, and they wanted me to come and tryout. I was ecstatic. I just want to be a great player.

I don’t like to sit out. I like to play basketball. It’s my life. So, for me to have the opportunity to play for USA Basketball and have a chance to go and win a medal, you can’t beat that. You don’t get that opportunity all the time.”
