Kyle Kuzma, who spent the first four seasons of his NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers, has been closely following the area’s reaction to an incredibly rare hurricane.

We know that because the Washington Wizards star tweeted about the event Sunday.

What we don’t know, and may never know, is what in the world Kuzma meant to say in the tweet.

Hurricane Hilary, since downgraded to a tropical storm, is threatening Southern California with potentially catastrophic flooding and other damage. To make matters worse, in a terrible stroke of bad luck, as the tropical storm bore down on SoCal Sunday, the area got struck by a magnitude 5.1 earthquake. The double-whammy quickly became known as “Hurriquake.”

Thankfully, Kuzma quickly offered his take on the situation.

“California getting hurricanes is proof y’all need to stop littering or the govt just be trying things out,” he tweeted.

There’s a lot to unpack there.

Is Kuzma implying that littering causes hurricanes? Or that the U.S. government is testing out a secret weather weapon? If that’s the case, why couldn’t the government have pointed the weapon somewhere else, instead of L.A., which already suffered enough disaster lately with the Angels’ second-half meltdown.

Sports fans tried, but failed, to decipher Kuzma’s bizarre tweet.

Kuzma was a much better basketball player than meteorologist this year, averaging 21.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game for the Wizards.
