After a season filled with hazing by his teammates because of his often bold outfits, Kyle Kuzma will get the last laugh as it was announced on Wednesday Kuzma was nominated for “Best Style” at the second annual 2018 NBA Awards.

The fan-voted award was first won by Russell Westbrook in 2017. Westbrook is once again among the nominees along with Kuzma, James Harden, LeBron James and, of course, Nick Young.
Kuzma reacted to the news by calling out his teammates Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart, who gave him flack for his outfits throughout the year, on Twitter. Suffice to say they were not impressed.

Haters gonna hate, I guess.
The 2018 NBA Awards will air Monday, June 25, at 9 p.m. ET on TNT. Fans can vote for Kuzma using the hashtag #BestStyle along with Kyle Kuzma’s full name or on NBA.com.
