Brutal Exchange Between LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma Goes Viral (Video)

Brutal Exchange Between LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma Goes Viral (Video)

Kyle Kuzma scored just two points on 1-of-6 shooting from the field during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 113-100 loss to the Phoenix Suns in Game 6 of their first-round match-up.

It was just his latest disappointing outing, after he put up zero points in Game 1, two points in Game 2 and eight points in Game 3.

Eventually, Kuzma’s ineptness began to wear on Lakers star LeBron James.

One particular sequence illustrated this frustration perfectly.

With just over three minutes remaining in the third quarter and LA trailing by 14, Kuzma caught the ball at the top of the three-point line and heaved up an ill-advised long two.

Naturally, he bricked it.

James’ reaction after the fact said it all:

Social media picked up on the tension immediately.

It is something of an open secret at this point that the Lakers are desperately trying to trade Kuzma this offseason. Fortunately, as recently as a few months ago, three separate organizations expressed serious interest in acquiring him.

Will the trade market for the 25-year-old still be as hot come this summer? Time will tell.
