Are the Lakers going overboard?

Social media is a double-edged sword for athletes. It can be used for good, and it can be used in ways that make others scratch their head.

That was the case with Kyle Kuzma.

During the NFL’s Monday Night Football preseason game, Kuzma took to Twitter to share his thoughts about what he was watching.

It is pretty unclear what Kuzma means by “how it is presented on TV”. Basketball and football games are pretty much presented the same way on television, so that’s a little hard to follow.

Kuzma also adds that the NBA is America’s “best sport”, by a good margin. That comes to no surprise, because players of their respective sports are supposed to feel their sport is the best.

It’s just Kuzma really didn’t have to take a jab at the NFL while doing so.

The Lakers young players and their behavior on social media has been a conversation a few times over the past few months.

The most recent one surrounding the diss tracks with teammate Lonzo Ball.
