Kyle Kuzma roasted for wearing oversized pink sweater, sparks hilarious memes about $1,700 shirt
NBA star Kyle Kuzma has become the subject of hilarious online mockery after wearing a ‘ridiculously’ oversized $1,700 pink sweater to his latest game.
Kyle, 26, who plays for the Washington Wizards, was spotted rocking the enormous item of clothing while entering the locker room at his team’s match against the Charlotte Hornets in Washington, D.C., on November 22 – sparking a slew of memes in the process.
The sports star, who is 6’10” tall and has a wingspan of 7-feet-0.25-inches, faced even further mockery after showing off his ensemble on Instagram – where he posted an image of the high-fashion design, the sleeves of which fall well below his long arms, while the hem reaches almost to his knees.
Within minutes, social media users began calling out the oversized sweater, with some comparing it to a variety of cartoons, including SpongeBob SquarePants, Number Three from The Kids Next Door, and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax.
Others claimed that Kyle reminded them of various household items in the massive shirt, like Pepto Bismol and a loofah.
‘Kyle Kuzma took a break from waving his arms outside at a local car dealership to play hoops tonight,’ one person wrote, referring to the inflatable dancing tube men that are normally put outside of stores to try to rake in customers.
