LeBron James had a rocky start to his Los Angeles Lakers stint after joining the Lake Show in 2018. But defying all odds, King James clinched his fourth NBA title in 2020. 27-year-old Kyle Kuzma played an integral role off the bench in helping his team secure their 17th NBA title. Apart from being a talented basketball player, ‘Kuz’ is widely known among social media platforms for having some of the best tattoos in the league.
Interestingly, Kuzma also got a new tattoo of a popular comedian who is known for a LeBron James joke.Kyle Kuzma adds a comedian to his existing ink collection.Tattoos were a big part of Kyle Kuzma’s life growing up. After all, the Washington Wizards star idolized Allen Iverson and Chris “Birdman” Anderson. He got his first tattoo at the age of 18 and has added numerous other tattoos all over his body ever since.
Recently, Kuzma shared a picture of a new Dave Chappelle thigh tattoo on his Instagram story. The $60 million worth comedian is a hugely popular internet figure and an avid NBA fan. Chapelle has been spotted courtside on numerous occasions with other high-profile celebrities.
Apart from his tattoos and basketball exploits, Kuzma is also a popular name in the fashion industry. The 2017-18 All-Rookie has some of the best outfits in the league, and he is also dating Victoria’s Secret model, Winnie Harlow.
Recently, popular singer Usher tried to serenade Harlow on his Las Vegas Residency show. Interestingly, Kuzma was seated beside her while Usher tried to bring her on stage. Unlike other celebrities, Harlow chose to reject the singer’s offer. “She chose. Okay”, said Usher in a viral clip, which was shared by Harlow.
Dave Chappelle once went viral for a LeBron James joke
Being one of the most popular athletes on the planet, ‘King James’ is a common name in pop culture references. Popular comedian Dave Chappelle released a show titled 8:46 back in 2020, where, during a segment of the show, the comedian talked about the time a FOX News Host had the audacity to tell the four-time NBA champion to “shut up and dribble”.
“Let me tell you something about LeBron… [he] was on the cover of Sports Illustrated when he was 17 years old and exceeded every expectation that they had for him,” said Chappelle. He also talked about how James is a great family man and also won a championship for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chappelle’s home team. The comedian’s influence is evidently unreal, as he has found some space on Kuzma’s body.
