Kyle Kuzma: “I just look at Kawhi Leonard as an example”

During a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, the third-year small forward for the Los Angeles Lakers Kyle Kuzma discussed lots of topics, including his health and opportunities despite the challenges of being the third option this season, via Silver Screen and Roll:

“I feel unbelievable health-wise. I feel great. Throughout the season had some injuries, playing through injuries, but the break allowed me to get physically 100%. Mentally, I’ve been reading, meditating and painting a lot, just preparing my mind for the playoffs. I feel great.

I just look at Kawhi Leonard as an example. He was a Spur for 3, 4, 5 years or whatever it was, waiting his turn behind Duncan, Ginobili, Parker and then did his thing. I just take the pressure on myself and try to get better every day, stay focused on what I can control, and (know) my time is coming.”

Kuzma is averaging 12.5 points, 1.3 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game for the Lakers this season. Los Angeles is currently leading the Western Conference with 49 wins and 14 losses.
