Old tweets are fun sometimes, aren't they?

Due to living in a day and age of screen shots and social media archives, anything one types can be used against you at a later date. You've been there with your partner a thousand times and rued the invention of the smartphone.

Before Steve Kerr was the head coach of the Warriors and current Coach of the Year, he was an NBA analyst for TNT. Much like we see with Charles Barkley today, with the job comes the responsibility to have opinions, and plenty of them.

Have your say on GiveMeSport - NBA by taking part in our survey here:

One of the famous views looks like it could be coming back to haunt Kerr as his Golden State Warriors side enter game seven of their current NBA Finals series with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who, of course, are led by LeBron James, this Sunday.

Kerr tweeted: "If I had to pick 1 player to play a Game 7 on the road, I'd take LeBron 1st, KD 2nd and Joakim Noah 3rd. Noah is an amazing player/winner."

Oops. Well, it just so happens that LeBron heads to the Oracle Arena on Sunday for a game seven with the reigning and defending NBA champions in a winner-take-all scenario and he is fresh off scoring 41 points in consecutive games, on top of a litany of other eye-popping stats.

But Kerr didn't stop there. He went on to say "LeBron's defensive range is incomparable," and labelled LeBron "the best in the world," as recently as 2014.

The Warriors head coach will hope that he was wrong, for once.
