KYLE Kuzma shocked NBA fans with his ‘outrageous’ outfit as he arrived at the game against Luka Doncic and his Dallas Mavericks.
The 27-year-old Washington Wizards star wore a rainbow ski mask with his mouth and eye holes cut out, which some thought made him look like a “GTA character”.
Kuzma, 27, has excelled since the Los Angeles Lakers traded him to Washington in 2021.
The forward is having the best season of his NBA career, averaging 21.8 points, 4.0 assists and 7.6 rebounds per game.
Kuzma is widely expected to step out of his contract in the summer and receive a huge pay rise in free agency.
And Rui Hachimura’s recent move to LA suggests the Wizards are willing to pay big bucks to bring the former standout back from Utah for the 2023-24 season.
Some NBA fans joke that Kuzma’s latest pregame outfit shows how confident he is of signing a big deal in the offseason.
The forward showed up for Tuesday’s game with the Mavericks wearing a rainbow ski mask and a matching cardigan that didn’t fully cover his torso tattoos.
“It’s an outfit you wear when you’re sure you’ll get one [$100M] expansion,” wrote one Twitter user.
Others joined in the comments on Kuzma’s look.
One wrote, “I thought that was a GTA character,” comparing the NBA star to a protagonist from the blockbuster video game series Grand Theft Auto.
Another added: “Outrageously fit he needs to go 2/16 FG.”
A third said: “You should just trade him for wearing this in public.”
A fourth tweeted: “If my teammate ever came into the dressing room in this fit I would just call local authorities.”
And one wrote: “Grandma crocheted the whole fit.”
Kuzma explained on Instagram how he chose his outfit for the game.
“Sometimes I go into my closets and stumble across things and tell myself fuck thas fye,” he wrote.
And his girlfriend, Canadian model Winnie Harlow, seemed to approve of the Wizard’s forward look.
“WHEWWW,” she commented
This isn’t the first time Kuzma’s outfit has gotten the internet talking.
In November 2021, before a game against the Charlotte Hornets, the forward wore a $1,200 pink sweater with extremely long sleeves.
The sleeves fell to the 6ft 9in star’s knees, leaving his arms nowhere to be seen.
