Katya Elise Henry Once Said Kyle Kuzma Couldn’t Handle Her

Tyler Herro had a memorable night against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 of the 2020 NBA Finals.

On one hand, he scored 17 points on 18 shots, ultimately recording a +/- of +1 for the game. To put that into context, the team’s other starters ranged from +13 for Meyers Leonard to +20 for Jimmy Butler to +27 for Duncan Robinson.

On the other – he walked away with arguably the second-most memorable moment of the entire night.

Following a late bucket, Herro mean-mugged on the opposition in a way that caught everyone’s eye. Literally everyone’s. Even Butler acknowledged it after the game.

“I saw it,” he said. “He did that thing with his lip. I saw that.”

One other person who saw and loved it? Herro’s girlfriend, Katya Elise Henry.

Henry has become something of a viral star over the course of the playoffs, in no small part due to her relationship with Herro. Interestingly enough, though – this isn’t her first NBA player beau.

She previously dated Los Angeles Lakers star Kyle Kuzma, who apparently did not treat her as well as Herro does.

After they parted ways, she claimed that the Lakers star simply could not handle her.

Kuzma, funny enough, actually had his best performance of the NBA Finals on Sunday night. He recorded 19 points on 6 of 13 shooting, went 4 of 8 from beyond the arc, and chipped in 3 rebounds in 23 minutes of action.

This of course comes on the heels of Lakers fans starting a petition to prevent him from getting any rewards should the team win a championship this year. Literally, the petition reads “he shouldn’t get a ring if the LA Lakers win the 2020 NBA Finals”

Kuzma spoke out regarding the criticism he has been getting on Twitter following Sunday night’s loss.

“I don’t give a f*ck,” he said. “Twitter is for jokes.”

He didn’t stop there, though.

“I honestly don’t care,” Kuzma continued.

“I dyed my hair blonde this year… It really doesn’t affect me at all.”

So who is living the better life right now between Herro and Kuzma? It’s tough to say.

But clearly if Henry had a vote, we know what direction she would go in.
