Kendrick Nunn is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
He played college basketball for the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Oakland Golden Grizzlies.
Against the Atlanta Hawks, he scored a career-high 36 points on December 10 to lead the Heat to a 135–121 overtime victory.
Duncan Robinson contributed 34 points in that contest, setting an NBA record for points scored by an undrafted tandem in a single game (70).
When he scored 504 points in his 31st game of his career, he became the franchise’s fastest rookie to reach 500 career points (one game faster than Dwyane Wade).
As of January 2, Nunn joined Caron Butler (4) as the only Heat players with multiple Rookie of the Month accolades. Nunn was an undrafted rookie when he won his first award, becoming the first player ever.
The impressive start to the new year earned him his third consecutive month as Rookie of the Month honors. At the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, he was selected for the Rising Stars Challenge and scored 16 points for Team USA.
Nunn was chosen to the 2019–20 NBA All-Rookie First Team on September 15, 2020, and finished second in the voting for Rookie of the Year.
Who Is Kendrick Nunn Girlfriend, Blen Kiya?
Blen Kiya has been Kendrick Nunn’s girlfriend for almost a year. According to a recent report, Blen and her boyfriend recently attended a J. Cole concert together.
Over 38,000 people follow Blen Kiya’s Instagram account, @blen kiya.
Rumors spread that a woman called Cecilia Rodriguez claimed that Nunn was the father of her son while things appeared to be going smoothly.
This information appears to have come from Black Sports Online, who broke the story first. “King Nunn,” they claimed, was the boy’s given name.
On October 25, the publication was the first to break the story. Nunn had in fact taken a DNA test, which they reported on the next day, on the 7th of November.
Aside from her Instagram tale, Blen Kiya also revealed the findings of her DNA test. That Nunn isn’t the biological father seems to be confirmed by this.
