Kyle Kuzma’s time with the Los Angeles Lakers came to an end this past week when he was included in a trade package for Russell Westbrook.
The 26-year-old’s departure from LA led to a lot of introspection regarding what his relationship was like with team star, LeBron James.
More fuel was added to the fire a few days ago, when shortly after being traded, Kuzma very publicly changed his pick for who the GOAT is.
That said, it wasn’t all negative between James and Kuzma. In fact, after the latter was traded, the former decided to throw him a party.

As such, his special parting gift for Kuzma shouldn’t come a huge surprise.
Hopefully this will end all the chatter of James and not Kuzma not liking each other once and for all.
Alex Caruso stays winning. https://t.co/RPDs7KeKXN
