As it stands today, veteran power forward Kyle Kuzma remains a member of the defending NBA champions Los Angeles Lakers. However, with the young star finding himself right in the thick of a slew of different NBA trade rumors throughout the last few weeks, he took it to social media to express himself.

While Kuzma did not dispel any of the circulating trade rumors involving his name, he did make a point to let the world know that he will be reminding everyone as to exactly why he is one of the key players on a championship team. Even if Kuzma is ultimately traded away from the Lakers this offseason, it appears as he still intends to show the haters about his skills and success atop the highest level.

The Lakers have been active early on in free agency, as the team has seen veteran shooting guard Danny Green traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Meanwhile, superstar big man Anthony Davis, shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and point guard Rajon Rondo have all elected top become free agents.

However, the Lakers did manage to secure point guard Dennis Schroder from the Thunder in exchange for Green and some other assets.

With the 2020-21 regular season starting up so quickly, it will be interesting to see how the Lakers respond early on in the year considering they just wrapped up their championship campaign not too long ago. Perhaps some fresh legs like Schroder will help such a cause.
