Kyle Kuzma Has A Message For His Haters (Video)

Los Angeles Lakers star Kyle Kuzma has a message for his haters. Just days after de-activating his Twitter account, the 25-year-old brought it back to post a new commercial where he is addressing the doubters head on.

“To whom much is given, much is expected,” Kuzma can be heard saying, before listing off many critical messages and tweets.

“But no one talks about the mental toll of expectation. Yeah, I hear you. I hear the chatter. ‘He’s not good enough. He’s not worth it. Trade him.’

“Nowadays, everyone wants to be a critic. But here you go. Let’s take a walk in my shoes.”

At that point, Kuzma tells the audience that he will use their hate and their doubts for motivation.

“For every failure, for every trial, for every negative comment, thanks for the motivation,” Kuzma said.

Reactions to the ad were mixed.

Kuzma’s numbers dropped significantly this past year due to the arrival of Anthony Davis. He went from putting up 18.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists on 45.6 percent shooting from the field and 30.3 percent beyond the arc, to 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists on 43.6 percent shooting from the field and 31.6 percent from beyond the arc.

During the playoffs, Kuzma’s totals dipped even further. He averaged 10 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 0.8 assists per game on 43.0 percent shooting from the field and 31.3 percent from beyond the arc. Needless to say, he struggled on the big stage.

If he can find a way to bring those numbers back up, the hate will likely stop as well.
