Lakers star Kyle Kuzma’s surprising claim on Devin Booker, Suns’ Finals run
The Phoenix Suns are now just two wins away from winning the NBA championship. Who could have ever predicted that? Well apparently, Kyle Kuzma did. The Los Angeles Lakers forward claims he could sniff their champion DNA as early as last season.
Kyle Kuzma recently spoke out via Bleacher Report on his upcoming social media series Hanging with Kuz, as part of LG’s Only On OLED campaign. He revealed just how close the Suns actually were at becoming a legitimate contender, because of how similar they were to the Lakers themselves.
“I saw them as a potential Finals team just off their chemistry,” Kuzma said on how the Suns were like the Lakers. “Last year with us, we had unbelievable chemistry and everybody kind of jelled and knew their role and had fun doing it, had fun playing with each other. I noticed playing them, that same type of feel. Everybody was communicating, talking, having fun, smiling with each other. Usually, when you have a team connected like that, you win big.”
The Suns weren’t able to make the NBA postseason last year, but Kuzma was probably remembering how locked in they looked during the NBA bubble. The Suns famously swept all of their regular seasons games there, going 8-0 and looking like a cohesive unit on the basketball court.
The Lakers were the same way last year in the bubble, which they carried all the way towards their 2020 title. The Suns look like they’re well on their way to doing the same
