Tyus Jones on Kyle Kuzma: 'He's a tremendous leader'

What have been your impressions of Kyle Kuzma as a player and person?  Tyus Jones: He’s a tremendous leader. He takes that very seriously, being the leader of the team, the voice and the face. It’s paid off. He’s hit the ground running this year, how well and consistently he’s playing on both ends of the floor. He’s been extremely vocal. That’s something I think he’s taken a step forward in doing. Guys are following his lead. It’s cool to see because we’ve known each other from high school and college and playing against each other in the league. It’s cool to be on the same team, working together and trying to achieve the same goals.

Fantastic game from Hardaway (He’s OK after taking what looked like a scary hit from Kuzma late in the game). How about the 3 Luka-Lively hook ups late in the 3rd, one prettier than the next. And then Curry, getting extended minutes showing he still has plenty to offer – 10:03 PM

Kyle Kuzma was 2-13 through 3 quarters but comes back with a 3 and tough and-1 layup finish to start the fourth quarter. – 8:53 PM

It looked like Jordan Poole was shaken up 2 minutes into the second half and Landry Shamet came off the bench presumably for that reason but then checked in for Kyle Kuzma instead. – 8:28 PM

I’m bored and waiting for a train, so here’s the Sixers role player trade I like:
Sixers get: Alex Caruso and Tyus Jones
Wizards get: Marcus Morris, Furkan Korkmaz and a first
Bulls get: Danilo Gallinari and a first
Sixers upgrade their defense, add passing and secure their… – 7:21 PM

Tyrese Haliburton has 125 assists this season.
No one else in the NBA has more than 92 assists.
Tyrese Haliburton has commited just 21 turnovers. That fewer turnovers than Jalen Duren, Cole Anthony, Kyle Kuzma, Aaron Gordon and Chet Holmgren.
incredible. – 4:38 PM

What’s funny about the Wizards is that this is the GOOD version of the team. What are they gonna look like when contenders offer sanctuary to Kyle Kuzma and Tyus Jones in February? – 10:22 PM

This tanking clinic is proudly brought to you by Kyle Kuzma and the Washington Wizards – 9:52 PM

Nah Kuzma on the other end of the court asking for a coach’s challenge instead of defending is flat out hilarious – 9:38 PM

Jordan Poole has three steals tonight, including this one where he jumped a passing lane and set up Kyle Kuzma for a wide open triple. pic.twitter.com/cuhubcN31n9:24 PM

Strong first half for Kyle Kuzma: 19 points (8-13 FG, 2-3 3PT) in 17 min. +18

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
A very gruesome Raptors have ends, appropriately, with a turnover on one end as a Kuzma four-point play on the other
Wizards up 19 at the break – 8:35 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Wizards are shooting 8/9 vs. Raps have made six lay-ups and two wide-one threes. They lead 18-9. Kyle Kuzma looks like vintage George Gervin right now. – 7:48 PM

More on this storyline

What have you thought about your future in a contract season?  Tyus Jones: I try not to focus on it too much. I know there’s an opportunity here starting in a contract year. I’m trying to let that stuff play itself out and take care of it when it gets here. I like where I’m at. I like what we have here in DC. I like the future and what this could be. I want to be a part of that. I’m looking forward to doing so. -via HoopsHype / November 16, 2023
Tyus Jones: People would ask me if I felt like a starter and how I managed being in a backup role, even though I’ve said time after time that I view myself as a starter. When you’ve started, you’ve shown you’re a starter. For me, look at my situation. I was the backup to a Top 5 point guard in the league. I’m also very self-aware and understanding of the situation. I never took it personally or looked at it sideways. I was Ja’s biggest fan. He was mine when I was on the court. There was never any ill will, weirdness, or frustration for me. I understood my role with the team and what they were asking me to do. I also understand that when Ja was out and I was asked to start, what they were asking me to do as well. Being in this league is about keeping a level head and your mind sharp by staying locked in. It’s a long season. There are a lot of ups and downs and moving parts. You’ve got to always be ready whether you’re starting, coming off the bench, playing 40 minutes or four. You’ve got to be ready to maximize every opportunity you get. That’s something I’ve learned throughout my career. That’s what helped me in that stint in Memphis. -via HoopsHype / November 16, 2023
This season, Poole and Kuzma face a first attempt to merge into something stirred by floor general Tyus Jones, which Poole has dubbed the “JP-Kuz sauce.” “We’re gonna bring our own little flair to the nation’s capital,” Poole told Yahoo Sports. So does this sauce have a recipe? “Aw, pshhh,” Poole said. “That’s undisclosed information. That’s undisclosed information. I can’t.” OK, they’re secret ingredients? “Yeah, I can’t tell just everybody.” Poole looked incredulous. “The sauce?” Well, one ingredient must be buckets? “Definitely,” Poole grinned. “Definitely the main component is buckets.” -via Yahoo!

A man claims Kyle Kuzma’s dog “viciously” bit him earlier this year … and he says the damages from the attack were so bad, he now wants the NBA star to pay up over it all. According to a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, the incident happened while Kuzma and the man — Bernardo Tosto — were on a plane on May 4 near the Van Nuys airport in California. -via TMZ.com / October 25, 2023
