NBA: Wizards’ Kuzma tweets picture with Rockets’ Wall

The Washington Wizards are enjoying their long offseason. They will surely do their offseason workouts in the weeks ahead, but it’s always good to take a break.

Kyle Kuzma is known as the Wizards’ fashion guru and the player most likely to be on the tabloids, largely because he played for the Los Angeles Lakers — and he was rumored to be dating model Kendall Jenner a couple years ago. Since then, he is known to be dating Winnie Harlow, another model.

Enough of my TMZ gossip. On to the real news.

This past weekend, Kuzma tweeted a picture with Houston Rockets guard John Wall with the caption, “Dc legend.”

Wall, as you all should know, was the Wizards’ franchise star from 2010-2020 and was one of the NBA’s premier point guards. But he didn’t play a single game last year for the Rockets, not because of his recent recovery from an Achilles injury, but simply because the team didn’t believe that he was a fit for their rebuild.

On top of that Wall is entering the last year of a four-year, $171 million contract that he originally signed with the Wizards, which is a player option worth $47 million. Since no team wanted to trade for Wall last season, he didn’t play a game. And unless there’s a change of heart in Houston, he’s probably not playing a game for the Rockets again.

So that leads me to Kuzma’s statement, calling Wall a “Dc legend” (the case is intentional). Is Kuzma trying to get the Wizards to consider bringing Wall back, whether this upcoming season or for 2023-24 when his contract comes off the books? Let us know in the comments below!
