SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – With the documented turmoil surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers, former Ute and Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma took to Twitter only to have fellow former Ute and Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut fired back a fun tweet to Kuzma.

The tweet from Kuzma came after ESPN’s Baxter Holmes released a long-form story about the issues with the Lakers front office, which included how former team president Magic Johnson treated employees and current general manager Rob Pelinka’s lies.

Kuzma was reported with trade rumors back in February when Johnson was trying to acquire New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis.

Bogut tweeted Kuzma with a reference to a part of the ESPN story.

The context behind Bogut’s tweet goes to when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson spoke to the Lakers team in March 2018. Pelinka stepped in to tell a story about his former client, Kobe Bryant. He said that when the Lakers played at Madison Square Garden in New York, he had just seen “The Dark Knight”.  Pelinka wanted to have dinner with Heath Ledger because he really enjoyed how Ledger “locked into his role.” Pelinka claimed to have had dinner with Ledger in New York.

The problem is that Ledger died six months before “The Dark Knight” was released.
