Former Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma undoubtedly enjoyed the Purple and Gold's game against the Orlando Magic, thanks in large part to LeBron James.
LeBron had quite the block party against Orlando, particularly in the third quarter when he rejected two shots from the Magic. The first was on a Chuma Okeke driving layup, which he almost sent to the stands.
What followed was even better, though, as he pulled off his signature chase-down block after Magic guard Cole Anthony thought he had some easy points with his floater. Sure enough, the Lakers superstar rejected it big time.

Kyle Kuzma was definitely entertained, as he took to Twitter to express his reaction to LeBron James' block party. Maybe Kuz is dreaming he still has a sideline seat to that memorable moment?
LBJ swat party☝🏽

LeBron was on point offensively and defensively in the game, and naturally, the Lakers easily took the W with a 106-94 scoreline. King James led the team in almost all areas, finishing with 30 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, and three blocks.
It was the Lakers' second-straight win as they now improved to 15-13 on the season.
Interestingly, such a big performance from James came after a recent report came out citing a Western Conference scout saying that Father Time has caught up to the Lakers forward. While that is partly true, it sure looks like The King still has a lot of gas left in the tank.
