Kyle Kuzma Deletes Controversial Tweet After Comparing This Year's Cavs To The 2007 Cavaliers

Kyle Kuzma, you should know better than to talk badly about LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Twitter!

On Sunday afternoon, the Cavs had a bit of a nightmarish start to their 2018 postseason campaign. After falling behind 20 points to the fifth-seeded Indiana Pacers in the second half, things were pretty much over, and LeBron succumbed to his first first-round loss in over six years. Ouch.

One of the top rookies this season for the Lakers, Kyle Kuzma, happened to be tuning into the matchup, most likely to support his former teammates Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr., and offered some commentary on the game on Twitter during the game.

That's right, Kuzma compared this year's Cavs squad to the one LeBron took to the Finals in 2007, only to be swept by the eventual champions, the San Antonio Spurs. There must've been some severe backlash to his tweet, or Kuzma realized that it may hinder the Lakers chances to sign LeBron this upcoming summer, as Kuz quickly deleted the tweet, replacing it with one praising former teammate Nance.

If Los Angeles want any hope of snagging James away from the Cavs, as well as the bevy of other teams in the race for his services, they may have to tell their young stars to zip up the insulting tweets.
