Kyle Kuzma is part of a young Lakers core that is having the time of their lives. All last season and into the summer, he and teammate Lonzo Ball have made headlines for their mostly good-natured-young-people antics, which consist primarily of them teasing one another for their fashion sense, their funky-looking shooting form, or their questionable rhyme skills.
