Podcast: Will Kyle Kuzma still be on the Lakers when Space Jam 3 comes out?

New, comments

Seems doubtful, but crazier things have happened, and the Lakers really like Kyle Kuzma.

NBA: Playoffs-Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

After several tweets from Harrison Faigen claiming to like “Space Jam: A New Legacy” — out on HBO Max now — I had enough and demanded to get to the bottom of how he actually liked that movie. Much like I don’t think anyone actually likes Chris Paul, I refuse to believe anyone actually enjoyed that catastrophe.

Harrison and I get into what he actually enjoyed about it and why I walked away angry that I’ll never get those two hours of my life back. Turns out, the one thing he and I agree on is that there is no universe — HBO Max or otherwise — in which it makes sense to make two whole hours of Space Jam.

From there, we segue to another fairly disappointing experience: Kyle Kuzma’s postseason.

As Harrison wrote up the season review for Kuzma, I was curious if looking closer at it put the 2020-’21 campaign in a different perspective. Turns out, it kind of did.

We also discussed how unique it was watching Kuzma struggle in the postseason, and where I found myself feeling legitimately badly for him, especially given the strides forward he took this season and the specific ways he tried to add to his game.

Now that last season is behind him, however, Kuzma has made some interesting comments that might shed some light on his future (or lack thereof) with the Los Angeles Lakers.
