This season looks to be a year of firsts for Los Angeles Lakers star Kyle Kuzma. Not only will he experience his first playoff berth since being drafted in 2017, but he will be sporting J. Cole's first signature sneaker with PUMA, the Sky Dreamer.
"It's a shoe that's been a long time coming," Kuz said Thursday (Feb. 13) during PUMA's sneaker release at Chicago's Foot Locker store. "It's a shoe that's almost been around for four decades dating back to the '80s when they first debuted it. I'm just super-excited about launching it with them. It's probably the best shoe up-to-date from a comfort standpoint, and also just performance on the court. You can wear it off the court and get fly with it as well."
The ardent Dreamville supporter gushed about his love for J. Cole and the crew when asked about his favorite projects, particularly Cole's Friday Night Lights and The Warm-Up mixtapes, and the whole roster's Revenge of the Dreamers set. Still, Kuz enjoys keeping his ears to the streets, since he's a self-proclaimed DJ when it comes to his playlists. At one point during the release, he even whipped out his phone to share some of his current favorite artists.
