It’s clear that some fans feel like Kyle Kuzma has failed to live up to expectations that Los Angeles had for him when the Lakers drafted him a couple years ago.
One fan decided to go to change.org and create a petition that will not allow Kuzma to get a championship ring if indeed the Lakers do win the entire thing. Here is what he said.
“Kyle Kuzma shouldn't get a ring if the LA Lakers win the 2020 NBA Finals,” the petition reads. As of writing, the petition has collected over 4,000 signatures, with it seeking a max of 5,000.
Kuzma has averaged 11.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.0 assists on just 35.7% shooting from the field in the three first three games of the NBA Finals versus the Miami Heat.
The Lakers currently hold a 2-1 lead in the series after Miami avoided a sweep by hammering Los Angeles in a series saving Game 3 victory, 115-104 on Sunday night. Kuzma had 19 points, 3 rebounds, and 0 assists.
Kuzma posted a career-low in scoring in 2019/2020, scoring just 12.8 per game after he averaged a career-high 18.7 points last season, and 16.1 the year before as a rookie.
