In line with the completely WTF performances achieved by some NBA players in the summer leagues, Kyle Kuzma has just laid out a rather nice line of stats for us during the Utah Pro-Am. A near triple-double with 67 points, 14 rebounds and 9 assists, to also go for the victory. The rift with the Wizards is tough.
Well then Kuz’, aren’t you venting an entire season of repeated frustration on poor guys who didn’t ask you for anything? In any case, it is the feeling that prevails at the sight of the statistics sent by the boy during the Powder League match organized at the Utah Pro-Am two days ago: 67 points, 14 rebounds and 9 assists. to come away with the victory. Yeah, we especially note that Kyle Kuzma is a big selfish, not even able to pass to his teammates to get a crazy triple-double. The highlights of the guy? Tomars, fadeaways, 10-meter pull-ups and above all, lots of celebrations. Well, as usual, the performance is to be taken with a grain of salt – or even more – since the meeting was played while trotting and most of the guys opposite had barely left their day at work at the butcher’s shop. corner. Of course, that doesn’t prevent us from taking advantage of what Jayson Tatum’s biggest rival offers us. Disclaimer: Kyle Kuzma plays black, so avoid confusing him with KD.

As you probably noticed, our dear friend wasn’t the only NBAer on the Utah floor that day. Facing him, the reigning Rookie of the Year, Scottie Barnes, also came for the occasion. Although he failed to slow Kuz down – at the same time are they really trying to slow each other down? – the nugget of the Raptors has meanwhile finished in 35 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists and a sacred festival of dunks of all kinds. Not bad. That’s all ? Of course not. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also played in gray alongside Scottie, although the latter was more low-key with only 40 points, 6 assists and 4 steals. He could clearly have made an effort to get a double-double but hey… To note that Delon Wright was, like at the Wizards, Kuzma’s teammate during this Pro-Am game. A small quartet of guys who get pissed off during the summer, and therefore decide to go and smear the fathers of families who, whatever one may say, get smeared by players that one would dream of having on a floor with us.
Another unimportant stat line in an unimportant game. We tend to say that we get used to it but we can’t help but smile when seeing the figures which look more improbable each time. What’s next? The 36/30 match of Santa Claus?
