For years now, Kuzma has been hammered by critics who have ragged on his inconsistency.
However, it doesn’t seem to bother Kuzma, who just keeps playing his heart out and sometimes creates some amazing work on the floor for his Wizards.

Fellow NBA star Kendrick Nunn complained about naysayers online, tweeting, “I hear the noise. Just keep that same energy.”
Kuzma had some thoughts about that and sent out his support: “Hey bro most of that noise coming from bots & 12 year olds you good bro.”
See, nothing bothers Kuzma.
His is not a bad mentality to have because who wants to be bogged down by so much negativity?
Kuzma Continues On
During his first few years with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kuzma seemed like an up-and-coming talent who could someday be an All-Star or even a superstar who could lead his own team.
But then a few bumps in the road emerged and Kuzma started having offensive issues when the team needed him most.
This led to Kuzma being part of a big trade that sent him and a few others to the Wizards in exchange for Russell Westbrook, who brought his own set of problems to the Lakers.
In Washington, Kuzma has averaged 17.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists.
Those aren’t atrocious numbers by any means (they almost reach career highs) but the team is still mired in problems and sits towards the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
This, of course, has created more criticism from NBA fans but it obviously doesn’t ruffle Kuzma’s feathers at all.
