Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma is having a great season individually. He is averaging a career-high 23.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game.He is also living up to the four-year, $102 million contract that he signed, effective this season.

And Kuzma is also making an impact off the court with his business ventures. They earned him a spot on Forbes’ 30 under 30.Kuzma is 28 years old.

Forbes noted that Kuzma co-founded Barcode, a sports drink. While Kuzma is heavily featured in Barcode’s ads, San Antonio Spurs forward Victor Wembanyama was also signed this past summer. In addition, Kuzma has also collaborated with PUMA and his own brand, Childhood Dreams.

I like seeing Kuzma get a spot on a list like this. He is a notable NBA player, but he’s also trying to increase his income streams beyond playing basketball. Being part of a business like Barcode and his fashion lines can last well beyond his playing days.

Congratulations to Kuzma for this honor. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
