Suffice it to say Kyle Kuzma is not impressed with LeBron James' supporting cast.

The Los Angeles Lakers forward took to Twitter on Sunday during the Cavaliers' first-round opener against the Indiana Pacers, comparing the roster to the 2007 Cleveland team. He deleted the tweet, but Hoops N Brews captured a screenshot:

Damn! @kylekuzma just went IN on the Cavs! https://t.co/PjvcyWbrox

The 2007 Cavs are viewed as one of the worst teams to make the Finals in NBA history. Their roster consisted of James and a bunch of spare parts, with LeBron putting together a Herculean effort against a relatively weak Eastern Conference. The San Antonio Spurs swept the Cavs out of the Finals.

There's little question the 2018 Cavs are better than their 2007 counterparts. Kevin Love is a future Hall of Famer, and even guys like George Hill are vast improvements over the teammates LeBron had a decade ago.

Making Kuzma's take a little spicier is the fact he used to play with Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson. Kuz is known to throw tongue-in-cheek shade to his teammates over social media, but with the Cavs down double digits for most of the contest, this seemed more like a legit criticism.
