“Enough is enough”: Los Angeles Lakers Forward Shares a Powerful Message in the Wake of Increasing Protests Across the Country

In his latest post on Instagram, he wrote, “During a global pandemic we as a country that should have been coming together as one, but we are divided once again because of the dislike and hate of one’s hue.” Those are powerful words. The pandemic started with racism against Asians. Now it’s the African-American community who are suffering yet again, through police brutality.

Los Angeles Lakers star delivers a heart-breaking message

In that gut-wrenching caption, Kuzma wrote, “Enough is enough. Stand for something or fall for everything.” After other young NBA stars like Jaylen Brown and Malcolm Brogdon took to the streets to protest, Kuzma makes a strong point through his post. “Violence is never the answer on both sides, but how the hell do you want us to say enough is enough?”

A few days back Kuzma had posted the picture of the police officer choking George Floyd. His caption said, “This virus been around for 400+ years. Still no vaccine…” He has been no stranger to speaking out for the right cause. In 2017, when Colin Kaepernick made a statement with his kneel, Kuzma stood in support with him.

Drafted with the 27th pick, Kuzma has been a steal for the Los Angeles Lakers. Despite being moved to the bench to accommodate Anthony Davis, he has never acted out. He has played 54 games and has started just 7 out of them. His 12 points and 4.5 rebounds have been crucial off the bench for the Lakeshow. Kuzma’s performance in the playoffs will be pivotal for the Lakers as they try to win the championship.
