Trevor Booker is all-in on the Kyle Kuzma hype. As LA Lakers rookie forward Kyle Kuzma, who has been an absolute stud in both Summer League and preseason play, dropped 18 points on the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, Booker tweeted that Kuzma would be better than Lonzo Ball. The 22-year-old Kuzma has been on a torrid pace this offseason (posting 19.2 points a game in preseason after putting up 21.9 in Summer League), leading many to label him the steal of the 2017 draft. Obviously, Ball’s hype machine is much bigger, but if Kuzma keeps this up, he might not be too far behind.
