Cleveland Cavaliers stars victims of comical Twitter joke by the Nuggets

Published Add your comment

The Denver Nuggets are set to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night and they have been showing just how ready they are via Twitter.

On Thursday night the team took to the social media platform to pull a comical prank on three of Cleveland's biggest stars.

LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving the targets of Denver's very clever little prank which has gotten some NBA fans laughing.

With just over 24 hours until the two teams collide, the Nuggets tweeted four times with pictures of three different Cavaliers players.

Their first tweet was of their own players in training for the showdown with Cleveland but it is more about what is written below the pictures.


First they tweeted that the teams preparing to take on 'Shawn Marion and the Cavs'.

Clearly not listing either Love, Irving or LeBron as the Cavaliers biggest player, instead they put Marion as their big guy, and they didn't stop there.

They followed that up with a tweet reading:

"Tomorrow night: your #Nuggets host Anderson Varejão's Cavs. Will you be there!?"

Of course that partnered a picture of Varejao playing for the Cavaliers against the Nuggets last year,  Tristan Thompson was up next as they continued their prank.

The Nuggets PR department clearly ran out of players eventually as they finished their prank with a simple tweet reading:

"We're out for today, #Nuggets fans. See you and Dion Waiters tomorrow!"

Well surely the Nuggets fans will be hoping that the players on the court don't forget about LeBron, Love and Irving come game time.

Clash of the 1-3

Both the Cavaliers and Nuggets are 1-3 going into the game at the Pepsi Center tomorrow with Cleveland arguably being one of the biggest shocks in the NBA right now.

With such big names brought in in the off-season many NBA fans were expecting the Cavaliers to run riot this year over most oppositions.

However since they lost their opening game at home to the New York Knicks, they have only actually managed one victory - in overtime, against the Chicago Bulls.

Meanwhile Denver haven't won since their opening game when they beat the Detroit Pistons and since then have lost twice to the Sacramento Kings and once to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Despite the outcome tomorrow, neither team will have a winning record but they will have a great platform to launch themselves from with Cleveland arguably being more desperate for the win.
