3. He is going to continue getting better

Kuzma broke out of nowhere in his rookie season and excelled much more then people thought he would. He showed a great amount of talent on the offensive end of the floor while scoring in a variety of ways.

He hit a bit of a sophomore slump last season, as he seemingly forgot how to shoot a 3-pointer. But he has slowly started to pick up that pace again and is starting to resemble his rookie stats.

His eFG% and TS% are both the lowest of his career, but he has been on the upward trend since returning from injury. There is a lot of critics out there that will say he will never be the third star, but he has shown that he can do it.

The kid is still 24 years old, he fits the timeline of now and the future. He will continue to improve his game each and every night. He will also get more comfortable over time playing with LeBron and AD.

He has exceeded expectations for what a 27th overall pick would provide. Now the fans just need to watch the product expand and Kuzma will continue growing his game for Los Angeles.
