Kyle Kuzma gets roasted for tweeting with Lakers game ongoing

Kyle Kuzma, Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma seemingly found a way to tweet during halftime of their game against the Chicago Bulls:

Some fans weren’t so kind to let it slide, even though Kuz seemed to have tweeted it during the halftime break:

One fan even used a famous GIF of LeBron James to describe his reaction to Kuz’s tweet:

Of course, there’s a chance Kuzma himself wasn’t tweeting this at all, and it instead was somebody else who had access to his account. Perhaps it was a scheduled tweet, or even just an accident by Kuzma himself in the locker room.

In the end, the Lakers were able to escape with a 107-100 win, so all is forgiven. After all, he put up 16 points, 12 rebounds, and two assists in the victory.

However, some fans have been frustrated with the Lakers as of late, so they’re trying to release their emotions in every way possible to make the Lakers know how they feel about the team’s recent struggles.

Kuzma is one of a bunch of Lakers who has been in a shooting slump of late. Yes, he scored a career-high 41 points against the Detroit Pistons recently, but other than that he has been underwhelming.

However, it is also known that Kuzma suffered a back injury last week and is still be trying to find his groove back.

The 23-year-old forward has followed up his stellar rookie season by being the team’s second-leading scorer behind superstar LeBron James. Kuzma is currently putting up 18.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game while shooting 46 percent from the field.

With the Lakers about to go on a tough three-game stretch against the Thunder, Rockets, and Warriors, it is expected that they will heavily rely on Kuzma’s scoring ability. If he and his teammates are able to find consistency on offense, the Lakers will have a decent chance of winning.
