The LA Clippers are an enigma. After starting the season 3-1, they made the very risky trade for James Harden. After doing so, LA lost six games in a row and has yet to get back to .500 since then.

Many have questioned the Clippers' move to add Harden to the roster. While he is not the player he was five years ago, Harden is still a high-level ball-handler and playmaker that can create his own shot as well. But that does not mean he is a good fit for this Clippers team.

Putting Harden into LA's rotation meant taking the ball out of the hands of their two best players in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. While there is still a chance Harden can work out with this group long term, many think the Clippers made a mistake in trading for him.

You can count Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma as one of many who sees this as the case.

Kyle Kuzma thinks the Clippers should have kept their team pre-Harden

On Tuesday, Kyle Kuzma took questions from followers on social media. When asked about the Clippers, he said that he would have kept the team they had before trading for James Harden.

Kuzma's sentiment is one shared my many who have followed the Clippers this year. While there is potential for Harden to ultimately elevate this group, there feels like even more potential for it to all end up being a mistake.

Early returns have not helped dispel that notion, as the Clippers still hold just a 6-9 record since Harden suited up for them.
