LeBron James’ Exchange With Kyle Kuzma’s GF Goes Viral (Video)

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Washington Wizards 122-109 on Friday night. Because both of these teams appear destined to not do much of anything this season, the primary storylines from this outing involved the individual talents involved.

LeBron James put up another incredible showing, dropping 50 points and becoming oldest player to have multiple 50-point games in a season.

The most impressive part of James’ output is that the points were very necessary for LA. He essentially gave his team new life when he rattled off 12 straight during a 22-8 run when the Lakers took an 82-75 lead with 2:25 remaining.

After a particularly thunderous dunk during that stretch, James had an encounter with his former teammate Kyle Kuzma’s girlfriend, Winnie Harlow, that immediately viral.

Reactions poured in immediately:

Hilariously enough, Kuzma actually had a pretty fantastic game against the Lakers as well. He scored 23 points on 9-of-18 shooting from the field to lead all Wizards.

But as was the case during his time in LA, he was ultimately outshined by James.

Interestingly enough, just a few days ago Kuzma took a little shot at the Lakers and his time with the team. Because of that, it was interesting to hear him strike a different tone after getting a positive reception from fans on Friday night.

“I’m just a kid from Flint, Michigan, at the end of the day. I always think about that, how being from a small town, coming to LA, and just making some noise,” Kuzma said during his postgame session with reporters.

“That’s the American dream, honestly for me. I love to hear it, I’m glad to hear it, for the fans to be so receptive of me.”

The Lakers and Wizards are both going nowhere fast this year, which sometimes results in particularly noncompetitive games. Although there wasn’t much on the line in this one, thanks to James’ and Kuzma’s efforts, it was at least fun to watch.

Hopefully that trend ultimately continues going forward.
