“Once a champ always a champ” Kyle Kuzma sends heartfelt message to Frank Vogel after divorce with LA Lakers
Kyle Kuzma and Frank Vogel
Kyle Kuzma is a former Laker as he got shipped to the Washington Wizards as a part of a package in exchange for Russell Westbrook. But still, his relations back here in Los Angeles are tight and strong as he is one of the few names who have come up to address the fired Head Coach Frank Vogel. The Los Angeles Lakers have been a complete failure this season and they have scapegoated their head coach blaming him for the results as he stands fired that too without dignity and respect. As he came to know about it via a tweet from an NBA reporter and the news was already out and viral. Kyle Kuzma though stepped up and appreciated Frank Vogel by calling him a champion, knowing justice isn’t done to him.
Frank Vogel led Kyle Kuzma and the Los Angeles Lakers to a championship in the bubble. But now has officially parted ways with the franchise as it was announced in an official statement by the Lakers on Monday even though the news was already out and had Frank Vogel disrespected. The Los Angeles Lakers have proved how consistently inconsistent they are when it comes to winning games and improving their record. But the head coach isn’t the one to blame as per many around the league. Since they think it was moreover of a management and ownership fault to build a veteran roster with chemistry issues and expect them to run under Frank Vogel.
The Los Angeles Lakers though now stand out of the picture for the postseason as they got wiped off and didn’t even make it to the play-in tournament. The story is very similar for Kyle Kuzma and the Washington Wizards as even they have wrapped their season up. But Kyle Kuzma though individually has become a better and improved player in every aspect of the game. As he has had many highlight-worthy moments since he joined the Washington Wizards and now is getting appreciated on the internet for showing love to his former head coach who got him a ring.
