Today CSMs welcomes Karri Kuzma, mom of Kyle Kuzma of the 2020 NBA Champion LA Lakers.  Raising her children in Flint Michigan, Karri and her family were faced with many challenges and she talks about how this shaped Kyle’s life, both as a person and a basketball player.

Karri talks about her son’s journey - from his first Fisher Price basketball net, to playing for the “Flintstones” as a teenager, basketball was his safe haven and what he loved doing most. Drafted 27th overall, we hear about draft night and the dream of playing for Magic Johnson and the Lakers, watching him play in his first NBA game to the excitement and anticipation of the championship series.

Karri gives us Kyle’s insights on the BLM movement, how it’s impacted him as bi-racial man and why he is so vocal in his support.   We talk Kuzmania - Kyle’s clothing line, her advice to other moms whose children have the potential to enter the world of professional sports and much more so tune in!
