Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma says it’s ‘super cool’ to play with four future Hall of Famers
Kuzma said that he’s learning a lot from those guys and that he is also honored to be competing with and against them.
“It’s just super cool, especially for me as the basketball fan. I’m playing with arguably four Hall of Famers if you think about Dwight [Howard],[Rajon] Rondo in there, AD [Anthony Davis] probably a future Hall of Famer, and obviously, you have LeBron [James],” Kuzma told per Heavy.com.
“It’s super cool just to learn, sit back, watch, but also compete against these guys. That is something that I want to do, so to be around those guys and be in the foxhole with those guys is pretty incredible.”
James, a four-time MVP and three-time NBA champion, is definitely a first-ballot Hall of Famer. Howard, a three-time Defensive Player of the Year and Rondo, a one-time champion and one of the best pure point guards in the league, will also be inducted someday.
As for AD, he’s still in the prime years of his career. However, if he can lead the Lakers to a title this season, there’s no doubt that he will be part of a Hall of Fame class too.
Kuzma is the only one left from the Lakers’ once-celebrated young core. He has shown flashes of becoming an elite scorer in this league, and if he keeps improving, who knows? He might become a Hall of Famer, too.
