Kyle Kuzma says he never takes trash talking with teammates personally
Ideally, the Los Angeles Lakers should be putting their focus on pressing concerns pertinent to the future of their team like finding ways to woo top free agents to La La Land or reviewing scouting reports of prospects in the looming 2018 NBA Draft. Instead, the team’s priorities appear to be getting hijacked by a seemingly petty but distracting issue over the friendly social media razzing between Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball.
Apparently, the two players’ antics on social media have reached the point that the Lakers can’t simply ignore them following the release of Ball’s diss track titled “Kylie Kuzma.” Kuzma, on the other hand, was recently named by Bleacher Report as its “Player Hater of the Year”.
In fact, the team has called both players for a meeting, asking them to dial down on their exchange of barbs over social media.
That being said, Kyle Kuzma had said way before that he’s not one to take anything personally, especially mockeries that come from his friends, per Ramona Shelburne and Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.
The two friends said in February that they never took any of the shots personally because they knew what boundaries can and can’t be crossed. “Nah,” Ball told ESPN in February when asked if they ever take anything personally.
“Nah. Never,” Kuzma followed.
Nevertheless, the Lakers obviously prefers Kuzma and Ball to step back a bit from using social media as a tool to roast each other.
Good luck with that.
