Kyle Kuzma, who put 0 down The reason I changed my back number is because
Kyle Kuzma of the Washington Wiz will play 33 times this season.
Kuzuma started his NBA career in 2017 after being nominated by the Brooklyn Nets as 27th overall in the draft. Kuzuma, who was traded to the LA Lakers on the day of the draft, has become the main player of the team, playing an average of 31.2 minutes in 77 games since the rookie season.
In the 2019-20 season, he supported LeBron James and Anthony Davis as bench members. He fell short of expectations in the regular season, but he helped his team win the final by performing like an alternative in the playoffs.
Kuzuma, who played 0 times in four seasons with the Lakers, was traded to Washington ahead of this season. As he has established himself as the 0th national player, he was expected to wear the 0th uniform in Washington, but Kuzuma chose 33. Cuzma mentioned Gilbert Arenas as the reason for putting down zero.
In an interview with NBC Sports Washington, Kuzma said, “The replacement of the back number is due to respect for Gilbert Arenas. It was a really big decision. “When I thought of the Washington Wiz, Arenas was the first thing that came to mind,” he said.
“Arenas’ existence certainly came to me greatly and I wanted to make a new start. “I thought that was right,” he said, continuing to announce that Washington’s No. 0 was Arenas.
As Kuzma said, Arenas played eight seasons in Washington alone and had his heyday.
Arenas, who played 357 games in a Washington uniform, played an average of 39.4 minutes, recording 25 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 5.7 assists. Since the 2004-05 season, he has been selected as an All-Star for three consecutive seasons and has become a representative player of the league. Although Arenas has since gone downhill quickly due to a knee injury, his performance in Washington is still in many people’s memories 토토추천
Kuzuma, who is set to make a fresh start in Washington, played in a pre-season game against Houston on the 6th (Korea Standard Time) to check his condition. Kuzuma, who showed not bad performance with 11 points, including 3 three-point shots, will begin his full-fledged run against Toronto on the 21st.
Attention is focusing on what Kuzuma, who showed both possibilities and limitations at the Lakers, will be like in Washington.
