In a heated matchup between the Houston Rockets and the Washington Wizards, the on-court action wasn’t the only thing grabbing attention. Amidst the competition, an off-the-court storyline unfolded, and it involved a playful jab at Kyle Kuzma, the Wizards’ forward.

The Wizards, who have been enduring a tough season, faced the Rockets at the Toyota Center in Houston. Unfortunately for Washington, they slumped to their second straight defeat, losing 135-119. This marked their 17th loss in the last 19 games, leaving them with a league-worst record of 11-55. Playoff contention seemed like a distant dream.

Tari Eason, the Rockets’ forward (currently sidelined due to a lower leg injury), seized the moment. He took to social media during the game, directing his attention to Kyle Kuzma. The reference? Kyle Kuzma’s old viral tweet that had caused quite a stir.

What was Kyle Kuzma’s Tweet that resulted in this revenge?

Back in late December, when the Detroit Pistons were languishing as the league’s worst team, Kyle Kuzma had taken to X (formerly known as Twitter) with a bold proclamation. He urged the rest of the league not to be the first team to fall to the struggling Pistons. His tweet read: “It’s like at this point, don’t be that team.”

e fired off a tweet of his own, playfully mocking Kuzma: “It’s like at this point, don’t be that team.” The irony was palpable, considering the Wizards’ dismal record.

Interestingly, Kuzma had a chance to change his fate. Before the trade deadline, the Dallas Mavericks expressed interest in acquiring him. However, Kuzma decided to stay put with the Wizards. In an interview, he revealed that he wanted to continue building something in Washington. The decision to remain loyal to his current team came despite the Mavericks’ better standing in the Western Conference.
