Kyle Kuzma and the Washington Wizards have been one of the biggest surprises to start the NBA season. 

After beating the New Orleans Pelicans 105-100 on Monday, they improved to 10-3 on the season. 

They are the first seed in the Eastern Conference through their first 13 games of the 2021-22 NBA season. 

This is coming after a total roster shakeup during the offseason when they traded Russell Westbrook to the Los Angeles Lakers and have a totally new starting lineup around Bradley Beal. 

After the win on Monday in Louisiana, Kuzma sent out a tweet and his post can be seen embedded below from his Twitter account. 

The Pelicans fell to 2-13 on the season. 

Not only do the Wizards have the first seed in their conference, but they are on a five-game winning streak and are only one of three teams in the entire NBA with ten wins.
