Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma is soaking in all of the knowledge that he can from his experience with Team USA, especially with coach Gregg Popovich serving as top general. Kuzma, in fact, hailed the legendary San Antonio Spurs mentor as his favorite coach of all time, per USAB.com:
He’s my favorite coach of all time. Growing up, I’m a hoops junkie, watching a lot of the Spurs teams and he’s won. He’s won at every level he’s been at. So, to be here and learn, to be around him, it’s really great.
Coach Pop has built a legacy of winning in San Antonio with five NBA championships to show for it. Moreover, the three-time NBA Coach of the Year has played a huge part of instilling the selfless, winning culture within the Spurs organization.
