LeBron James responds after being called out by Kyle Kuzma’s trainer
LeBron James is once again dealing with some drama induced by someone close to one of his own teammates.
On Thursday, Clint Parks, Kyle Kuzma’s personal trainer, posted messages on social media comparing James unfavorably to Kawhi Leonard and questioning how hard the Lakers star is working on the side.

This obviously raised questions about Kuzma and James’ relationship. On Saturday, James said Kuzma came to speak to him about it, and suggested that Parks used James’ name to “get some notoriety.”

James understandably doesn’t seem thrilled, but there has to be an understanding that players aren’t responsible for every word that comes out of their trainers’ mouths. Kuzma seems to be doing a good job as a team player, so this should end up being a minor blip on the radar.
