Published 10/20/2021, 1:32 PM EDT


Los Angeles Lakers have a monstrous roster this season and are one of the contenders for the championship. However, it’s hard to give playing time to every player in such teams. The additions of Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook, and DeAndre Jordan, among others, meant that some players will have to sit out or find a destination somewhere else.

One such casualty was Kyle Kuzma. The 26-year-old joined the Lakers in 2017. However, he wasn’t a regular starter back then and won the starting position in his second season with the Lakers. However, the Lakers traded him, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and Montrezl Harrell, in a five-team trade to Washington Wizards.

It appears that Kuzma’s deleted story has upset many Lakers fans. Los Angeles Lakers have had a disappointing start to the season as they have lost seven games this month. Six of them were in the preseason and the latest loss was against the Warriors at the Staples Center. It wasn’t the start everyone expected from a team like the Lakers.

However, they did undergo a massive roster overhaul during the summer and it’s hard for everyone to adapt to the game with a new team. Russell Westbrook had a poor outing against the Warriors as he scored just 8 points in 35 mins. But there’s a long way to go and fans are expecting the team to break the losing streak against the Suns later this week.
