Kyle Kuzma’s edgy pregame fits include oversized sweaters, cropped shorts, and more
Kyle Kuzma’s rÃ©sumÃ© already includes participation in the NBA All-Rookie First Team in 2018 and the 2020 final winner as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Now it might be appropriate for the fashion-conscious Washington Wizards to officially add sports couture trendsetters to this list, as his outfits keep turning heads before the game.
Last month, Kuzma expressed the huge role that fashion plays in his life.
“Life is all about art, and I think the first impression in life is always what you wear,” he told the boardroom. “And I always don’t look at fashion because I’m just putting on clothes, I put together a story and put together a look that, when you see me, will be a topic of conversation.”
On Friday, ahead of Washingtonâs game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, he continued his classy antics by putting on his latest talking point when he arrived at the OKCâs Paycom Center

But the baggy coat isn’t even his most noticeable fit of the week. On Monday he wore an oversized pink sweater that got the NBA world talking. In fact, two of his former teammates were among those who got involved on social media.
“Isn’t that how you wore it !!!” commented Lakers star LeBron James on Instagram. “I’m not pressing the like button because that’s outrageous, Kuz!”
Anthony Davis shared James’ sentiment under the post, saying, “You are outta line, sir !!!!”
The Raf Simons sweater in question, which came at a proud price of $ 1,360.94, also had quite a few fans. Las Vegas Aces star Liz Cambage praised the fit with this compliment: “He went and did it”
Kuzma is in a relationship with supermodel Winnie Harlow, who has some influence on his stylish decisions.
“Who bought this fit? [fire] head to toe, “commented former America’s Next Top Model candidate Harlow.
Last season, Kuzma posted a picture in another memorable pregame fit, tagging well-known Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck.
These fits weren’t the first, and definitely won’t be the last of Kuzma’s bold style statements, as the NBA and the fashion world are equally known for the next topic of conversation about his clothes.
