When people talk about the viability of players, one question is always raised: “Is [fill in the blank] capable of being the [fill in the role] on a championship team?”
Nobody states as a fact that Mitchell or Tatum were those guys before their playoff performances.
When Kuzma was playing at such a high level during the first three months of the season, the rest of the Lakers starters were shooting like crap from beyond the arc:
October: Lopez (.269), KCP (.304), Lonzo (.286), Ingram (.333), Clarkson (.385), Hart (.333)
November: Lopez (.318), KCP (.367), Lonzo (.243), Ingram (.333), Clarkson (.366), Hart (.182)
December: Lopez (.286), KCP (..290), Lonzo (.377), Ingram (.316), Clarkson (.317), Hart (.419)
Kuzma become a focal point of opposing coaches very quickly, but still performed brilliantly.
I think the context of the Lakers’ poor season is being held against Kuzma, more than any real data that substantiates your opinion.
