Donovan Mitchell roasts Kyle Kuzma in photo with Kevin Hart
Utah Jazz rising rookie guard Donovan Mitchell has certainly turned many heads this season with his stellar play. That notion also applies to Los Angeles Lakers rookie forward Kyle Kuzma, who continues to soar past expectations.
However, a recent photo of Mitchell and comedian Kevin Hart that was posted to the Jazz rookie’s Twitter account probably wasn’t one of Kuzma’s more flattering moments this season.
In the background, Kuzma can be seen photobombing Mitchell and Hart while scratching his chest.
“Me and Kevin Hart talking ’bout how Kyle Kuzma look real weird scratching his chest like that,” Mitchell tweeted on Sunday.

These two rookies have plenty to smile about during their first season in the NBA. Mitchell, who was drafted No. 13 overall out of the University of Louisville, is the leading scorer amongst all rookies this season at 19.7 points per game on 43.7 percent shooting from the field. Just last weekend at the NBA All-Star festivities in Los Angeles, the 21-year-old Mitchell won the 2018 Slam Dunk Contest over Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. in the final round of the competition.
As for Kuzma, he was selected No. 27 overall out of the University of Utah by the Lakers and continues to put up very good numbers this season. In 58 games for Los Angeles, Kuzma is currently averaging 15.5 points on 44.8 percent shooting from the field, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game in roughly 29.3 minutes of action per contest.
Mitchell and Kuzma won’t play against each other again until early April when the Lakers and Jazz square off at Vivint Smart Home Arena.
