Earlier this season, Bryant took Kuzma to dinner at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood and told him, “It’s not what you do in the national TV games. It’s what you do on a back-to-back in Minnesota when you’re tired but you’re still trying to dominate, to kill.” Kuzma was at home against the Spurs on April 4, with ESPN broadcasting, but he’d played 36 minutes the night before in Utah and his legs were cooked. “I get through a lot of situations,” Kuzma says, “asking myself what Kobe would do.” He logged another 43 minutes on two bum ankles, scored 30 points and beat San Antonio in overtime.
Count Kuzma, rookie or not, among the select few who will tell his more famous friend what he needs to hear about improving his attack mentality this offseason. “That’s one thing that he needs to do for us to be great,” Kuzma said of Lonzo. “No matter who comes here, everything is going to fall on his head–no matter if it’s a superstar that comes or not. That’s just the reality we live in. For him and us, we all know he has to bring it next year, and he will for sure.”
