Lakers fans were taken aback by the praise.
The Hoop Central Twitter account recently asked its followers who they thought was going to take a big leap in 2021. Without skipping a beat, LeBron replied to the account simply saying “Kyle Kuzma!”
In the past, LeBron has been hard on his teammates while out on the court, although this is simply because he is trying to get the best possible performances out of them. Clearly, LeBron has a lot of faith in Kuzma and with the season starting in just a few short weeks, the Lakers superstar is instilling some confidence within his young teammate.
Only time will tell whether or not LeBron’s prediction comes true.
