Kuzma has a big deal.
After the finals G3 game, an item on the foreign Change.org website pleased to see a hot search on Twitter-"If the Lakers win the championship, Kuzma will not be awarded a championship ring"!
Up to now, more than 10,000 fans have signed on the online real-name system to express their approval.
This shows the huge difference between Chinese and American fans.
Our Lakers fans here, a slogan of the Lakers "Lakers Championship", shouted from last year to this year. In their minds, they are all their own when they enter the team. Whenever they get into the game, they can make a joke. There is really no need to go online. Am I right? Zhang Tielin?
In contrast, the old American fan base seems a bit extreme.
As the main rotation member of the Lakers, Kuzma is not stable, but he works hard.
As a locker room lubricant, he can always praise every teammate for the first time, and he said every word in his heart.
On the court, he is not very good defensively, but he always tries his best. He often hits the shots and is very active in rebounding.
He is not without high-light performance, just say that yesterday in the finals G3, Kuzma played 23 minutes, 6 of 13, 4 of 8 three-pointers, 3 of 3 free throws, 19 points and 3 rebounds, 46.2% shooting, three-pointers He shot 50% and beat the Heat by 6 points.

Leading the bench players to score 53 points together, tying the second-highest record in a single game in the finals. Is this player really worth a championship ring?
No, I even suspect that these people are not Lakers fans at all.
Imagine that fans criticize their home team players. What is the core purpose?
Do you want them to collapse and let them cool down? No, most of the fans have a hatred of iron and steel, expecting them to grow up in criticism. This mentality is the old saying that we hate iron but not steel.
Therefore, I can reasonably speculate that the true identity of this group of voters is probably a backlash against the excitement.
For this group of enthusiastic fans (let's call them fans), Kuzma also expressed his opinion.
He told reporters: "To be honest, I don't care about these people. I have dyed blonde hair this year, so I don't care. Twitter is just for fun, and it doesn't affect me at all."
The children in Los Angeles have never been different from other cities. While enjoying the greatest exposure, they are also under the greatest pressure.
Imagine that if a "27th overall player with an annual salary of $1.97 million scored 19 points in a single game in the Finals", I think most people would praise rather than criticize.
A low draft rookie, relying on his own efforts, continues to grow brutally and play seriously, even if the team's combat effectiveness gradually becomes stronger, he has become the team's Nth choice, he never thought about rowing, and that's it. The players in the league are rare in the league.
Many fans can never understand one thing: a team of fifteen players, these players are divided into the core of the team, ordinary rotation, bench players, you can not ask all ordinary rotations to be like superstars, never make mistakes, side by side carry.
A team where everyone can play 1 out of 5 alone is called an All-Star or a dream team.
Kuzma can't defend, and the big guy is clear in his heart, but he did his best when he was limited in his ability.
Jimmy Butler, who scored 40 points on 14 of 20 shots in the last game, made three shots in front of Kuzma and was defended by two goals.
Can you say that Kuzma is not serious about it? Isn't such a player worthy of a ring?
A certain Lakers media wrote angrily on Twitter:
If you are a Lakers fan and you signed the petition, please don’t follow me. Everyone in our locker room has contributed to this team. These are not the ways that real Lakers fans treat players. I do not force you.
In my opinion, the Lakers also have this attitude.
Basketball is a sport of five people, no matter how strong a superstar is, it is impossible to really play five.
Although some players did not make it to the field, they can wave towels on the sidelines, give their opinions during training, and unite the atmosphere in the locker room. Isn't the Heat's Kazakhstan team the best example?
To play for a team like the Lakers, all players need to live under the microscope, but no one is perfect.
You can complain about Pop Green's combination of Crouching Dragon and Phoenix, but you can't forget their defense; you can complain about Kuzma's offensive instability and defensiveness, but you can't forget, he has Jenny...
