Kyle Kuzma Returns to News Station Who Ripped Him About LeBron

In a recent postgame interview, a Cleveland news station mocked Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma’s costs.

Behind four 3-pointers from Kuzma in the fourth quarter, the Wizards clinched a big victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on November 10. During the match, hecklers had a sign which read, “Without LeBron, Kuzma wouldn’t have a ring.”

Kuzma has since said opposing fans were his motivation for the great fourth quarter performance he had in the game against the Cavs. But the harmless feud with the fanbase was just beginning.

News 5 Cleveland (WEWS-TV), Cleveland’s ABC affiliate, recently aired one of Kuzma’s press conferences. When they showed it on screen, the bottom third read that Kuzma “won an NBA championship because of LeBron James.”

Kuzma, who averaged 10.0 points and 3.1 rebounds per game during the 2020 playoffs en route to a title shot for the Los Angeles Lakers while playing in the NBA bubble in Florida, n Obviously wasn’t going to take such a trolling without offering his own quip in return.

Kuzma shared a screenshot of the jab, adding, “City of Cleveland, we have something in common” in response. The irony was not lost on Kuzma and it was truly a masterful work in the art of deflecting the NBA champion.

For the 26-year-old striker, of course, it would have been difficult to pass up this little joke from the news station. Any attempt to criticize someone when the problem also applies to whoever did it should be dismissed in the face.

Considering James led Cleveland to their city’s first and only major sports title since 1964, Kuzma had no choice but to remind them that they owed LeBron a shared thank you.
