Washington Wizards Kyle Kuzma broke the Internet with his pink sweater, defending his fit on Instagram against LeBron James, J.R. Smith and Isaiah Thomas.

Kyle Kuzma has made headline after headline for opinionated statements, but the Nov. 22 fit has gone too far.

Kuzma rolled up to Capitol One Arena to play the Charlotte Hornets in an oversized cable knit pink sweater, stealing the spotlight with his sizable fashion statement.

Kuzma was swallowed by the billowing pink fabric, but when NBA stars like LeBron James, J.R. Smith and Isaiah Thomas told him that it wasn’t working for him on Instagram, Kuzma had to defend his honor.

“Lmao man that sh*t fire” and “it’s cold out lol” are the defenses he chose to explain his rationale.

A fire sweater for cold weather — could it be both?

If anything, Kuzma’s sweater is so open at the bottom and sleeves that icy air could easily travel upward, especially since Washington D.C. had a low of 37 degrees th

at night.

The real reason here is that Kuzma tried to get a little too edgy with his look and it disastrously backfired, so all he could say was… it’s cold.

The sweater may have seemed shocking, but it was no surprise that Kuzma used the tunnel like a runway to display his latest fit. Kuzma has developed a reputation for being unique in thought and in threads, which he has demonstrated on every possible occasion. Even while in COVID-19 quarantine in April 2020, Kuzma displayed a fuchsia suit on Instagram that got over 345,000 likes.

Designer tags don’t save Kuzma from criticism — this Dolce & Gabbana patchwork denim disaster had people cackling at yet another bizarre fashion statement.

Kuzma has built a brand on being different, but the Internet — including half of the NBA — just wouldn’t let him have this one.
