The Washington Wizards forward had social media buzzing ahead of their game against the Charlotte Hornets Monday night, arriving at Capital One Arena in a giant pink sweater.

Like, extremely giant!

As NBC Sports Washington pointed out, when you've got your team off to a flying start this season, you've got the juice to wear whatever you want, but the timeline still brought the jokes, with Kuzma's name quickly trending on social media.

Kuzma posted the image of him rocking the Raf Simons oversized-sleeve jumper on his Instagram and it didn't take long for some of his former teammates to start getting the jokes off in the comment section.

Anthony Davis chimed in with "You're outta line sir!!!!" along with several laughing emojis, while LeBron James added "Ain't no f*****g way you wore that!!! I'm not pressing the like button cause this is outrageous Kuz!"

Meanwhile, DeMarcus Cousins commented "Cmon bro s**t getting outta hand now," while JR Smith hit him with a straight-up "Man hellll nawwwwwww."

All in good fun, his NBA peers were letting the jokes fly, but Kuzma's commitment to the pregame tunnel is on another level.

The rest of the internet had plenty of jokes too.

The Wizards went on to lose the game to the Hornets 109-103, but they remain in the top four in the East at 11-6 on the season.

In 2021-22, Kuzma is averaging 13.5 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists while shooting 40.9-percent from the field and 35.1-percent from the 3-point line.

They are back in action on Wednesday, Nov. 24 against the New Orleans Pelicans. We'll have to wait and see what Kuzma's got waiting in the wardrobe.
