LeBron James is part of the Los Angeles Lakers family, and it’s definitely one of the most exciting turnarounds in the entire NBA history. Fans were thrilled to see him wear a Lakers uniform, and his teammates can’t wait for the season to start. Kyle Kuzma has something to say about this.
Kyle Kuzma is well aware of the fact that LeBron will change the game, and even put the team higher on the ranking lists. His signing increased the Lakers’ internal expectations and motivation have reached higher levels.
Kuzma always pushed himself harder than most players, and that’s not a problem for him. He was eager to improve his skills and use his talent in the best way possible. He spoke to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com, and talked about
LeBron’s contract with the team. Kuzma said that the landing of LeBron was a huge motivation for him, and it also lit fire under his teammates. Well, they will have to raise their games now.
“It has, because it means we’re going to win now. Everybody, not only me, has to step it up. For me, I just want to be a great player, and that’s what it’s going to take. I’ve always been a self-motivated guy for basketball,” Kuzma said.
We remember how Kuzma said that the arrival of LeBron James in Los Angeles wouldn’t apply extra pressure on him. He may not feel the pressure from the new team, but it’s more than clear that the team will have to adjust to LeBron. He’s the star now, and his game is too sharp for some players. Playing alongside King James is not a joke, and the Lakers are already aware of that.
The new season is about to start, and the team is working on their winning formula. LeBron arrived at the right moment, and he will definitely teach the young players a few tricks.
