Over the next few years, Kyle Kuzma may take on more of a leadership role with the Washington Wizards.
Kuzma is one of the most prominent players on the team and the loss of Bradley Beal means that he might get more chances to inspire his teammates.
Therefore, Kuzma better be prepared to impart some wisdom to his peers.
On Twitter, Kuzma is already sending a strong message.
“As a ball player trying to improve you can’t be scared to try all the moves you’ve did all summer,” he said on Tuesday.
“Real improvement comes with live game reps,” he concluded.

This is wise advice from Kuzma.
He says that during the regular season, NBA players should try the novel, unique things they learned in the summer.
This is a wonderful way for athletes to get better.
During this offseason, Kuzma’s Wizards have been through a lot.
Not only did they lose Beal, but they also said goodbye to big man Kristaps Porzingis.
They also received Jordan Poole from the Golden State Warriors, who might be a huge asset for them in the seasons ahead.
This will be Kuzma’s third season with the Wizards.
During his first two seasons, he averaged 19.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 3.6 assists.
Those numbers are definitely a step up from his first few seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers.
During his time with LA, some people said that Kuzma lacked the experience and leadership skills to be the best player on a team.
But he has been improving his game and the way that he performs with other players on the court.
