Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma honors Kobe Bryant after Dodgers also win 2020 championship
Los Angeles Lakers stud Kyle Kuzma brought up an interesting insight following the Los Angeles Dodgers’ World Series win on Tuesday night. The 25-year-old took this as an opportunity to honor the late, great Kobe Bryant.
Kuzma took to Twitter to share how the Lakers and Dodgers winning titles were both an ode to the fallen legend:

For those in need of context, the Lakers secured their 17th title in franchise history history several weeks back when they defeated the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Similarly, it was title No. 7 for the Dodgers — their first since 1988. Doing the math, Kuzma pointed out how it adds up to one of Kobe’s own jersey numbers, 24.
For his part, Kuzma played a key role for the Lakers in their recent championship run. He may have seen his role decrease this past season due to the arrival of Anthony Davis, but there’s no denying that he still played his part in the title.
It’s going to be an interesting offseason for Kuzma. In his first three years in the NBA, the former 27th overall has shown promise as a young talent, but his dip in production and occasional struggles this past season make his future alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis a bit cloudy.
Kuzma has found his name in the rumor mill as a potential trade prospect of late, and it would not be surprising if he ends up parting ways with the Lakers this offseason.
