Kevin Durant Endorses Kyle Kuzma's ‘MVP, Champ' Instagram Post

In the Las Vegas NBA Summer League title game on Monday night, Kyle Kuzma racked up 30 points and 10 rebounds.

He was named the game's MVP.

Following the win, he posted a picture to Instagram of him holding two trophies, with the caption:

"You can call me anything but don't forget to call me an MVP and a CHAMP #Lakeshow"

On Wednesday morning, Kevin Durant reacted on Twitter:

Durant, of course, won his first championship in June.

And he was named NBA Finals MVP after averaging 35.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.6 blocks per game, while shooting over 55 percent from the field and over 47 percent from distance.

Kuzma was selected 27th overall by the Lakers in June's draft.

In seven Summer League games, he shot 48 percent (24 for 50) from 3-point territory.

"I didn't know I was that aggressive," Kuzma told digital reporter Joey Ramirez. "I wasn't like that in college. Definitely not that aggressive. When I'm locked in and focused, I can do pretty much anything I want."

As a junior at Utah last season, Kuzma averaged 16.4 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.
