Kyle Kuzma credits LeBron James for adding nasty move to his arsenal
Los Angeles Lakers talent Kyle Kuzma has been playing with LeBron James for a few seasons now and he’s beginning to pick up some of the legend’s tendencies. After a highlight showing Kuzma making a subtle move to create an open passing lane, Kuzma credited James for being able to accomplish the move.

Kuzma, who is in his fourth season with the Lakers, is in his third year with James. Given that, he has spent plenty of time around James, allowing him to add some valuable abilities to his arsenal.
When speaking about the best passers in the NBA, James is one of the first names mentioned among fans and analysts alike. With an insane knowledge of the game, James is able to manipulate defenders into thinking he’s doing one thing while he’s able to find open teammates.
During the Lakers’ previous game against the Sacramento Kings, Kuzma was driving toward the paint. Instead of attacking the basket, Kuzma was able to move a defender off of his spot with his eyes, allowing him to deliver a clean pass to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
After signing a multi-year extension ahead of the 2020-2021 season, Los Angeles hopes Kuzma continues to develop his game further each season. While Kuzma is a streaky scorer, the former first-round pick is beginning to add other intricacies to his offensive game that could make him lethal in the future. Luckily for him, he’ll have plenty more time to work alongside James with the Lakers.
