On Monday, Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel revealed that Kyle Kuzma has been one of the Lakers’ best players since the team arrived to Orlando Fla.

Kuzma, 24, is ready to have a resurgent conclusion to the 2019-20 campaign.

So far this season, the forward has struggled. As a matter of fact, he is averaging career-lows with 12.5 points, 4.5 boards and 1.3 assists per game.

However, the youngster can ball out when he’s on top of his game. Kuzma put up 18.7 points, 5.5 boards and 2.5 assists last season with the Lakers.

The addition of superstar Anthony Davis has minimized Kuzma’s opportunities on the floor. Davis is averaging 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.4 blocks per game this year.

The Lakers are the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. If the Lakers can get Kuzma to be a formidable punch off the bench, they will increase their odds of winning a championship this season.

The Lakers resume their season on July 30 against the Los Angeles Clippers.
