LeBron James is starting to figure out his young Lakers teammates and one guy he seems to have a particularly good relationship with is Kyle Kuzma.
The get on well off the floor – with Kuzma being the first Laker to call LeBron after he signed with LA – and their on-court chemistry is building too.
When asked about his young teammate on Sunday night, James said he’d been developing his relationship with Kuzma well before becoming a Laker.
“Me and Kuz been talking even when I was in Cleveland,” James said.
“He kinda wanted to pick my brain, and how he can get better and things of that nature, so we’ve always kinda had that mutual respect…
“Our relationship on the floor is getting better and better, and if he moves, I’m gonna find him. I’m always looking for him, and he knows that.”
LeBron undoubtedly knew he would become a Laker a long time before he signed on the dotted line, and it wouldn’t be a stretch to think he put extra effort into helping the budding young gun for that very reason.
Kuzma has looked particularly solid lately, putting up 17 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists over his past four games, with the Lakers winning their past three.
