The on-court talents of Los Angeles Lakers power forward Kyle Kuzma have been impressive during his first two years in the NBA.

However, it appears his sense of fashion was off the mark after his recent social media post of an outfit was roasted by teammates and other NBA players.

Laker teammates Anthony Davis and Kostas Antetokounmpo, along with former Laker Isaiah Thomas, Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell, Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum and others all delivered brutal shots online about Kuzma’s casual outfit. In the case of Los Angeles Clippers guard Derrick Walton Jr., he jabbed at Kuzma’s past criticism of Walton’s clothing choices.

Kuzma, who turned 24 last month, showed off his clothing in the midst of his bid to win a spot on the Team USA roster that will compete in the FIBA World Cup beginning on Aug. 31. Whether or not he ends up making that team, his presence on the Lakers has taken on added importance within the past week.

That’s because he’s likely to be asked to take on more responsibilities in the wake of the ACL injury suffered by new Lakers acquisition DeMarcus Cousins. Kuzma has put up good numbers during his first two seasons with the team, having averaged 17.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists. One area that he’s hoping to improve in is his shooting from beyond the arc, where he has connected on just 33.5 percent of his attempts.
