Golden State Warriors and Team USA forward Draymond Green made an error yesterday that every 21st-century man must dread, and in this day and age, there is no going back.

The 26-year-old accidentally revealed his private areas on Snapchat after posting the graphic image to his story, rather than to the private person it was intended for.

Posting it to his story means everyone that follows him was able to take a good look at his junk and, unsurprisingly, screenshots have been making their way around the internet ever since.

"I apologise for the situation. It's clearly not what I was trying to do," Green said.

"It was a situation where it was meant to be a private message," Green continued. "I kinda hit the wrong button and it sucks. It was meant to be private. We're all one click away from placing something in the wrong place, and I suffered from that this morning."

Initially, Green tweeted out that he had been hacked in the wake of the error. However, he has since admitted his error in what has become a difficult year for the Defensive Player of the Year runner up.

He was a part of the Dubs side that won 73 regular season games, but since then, he has appeared to punt Steven Adams in the groin, been suspended for hitting LeBron James in the groin, lost the NBA Finals by one game after leading 3-1 in the series and he reached a plea agreement that will allow him to avoid jail time and reduced the charges he faced for allegedly slapping Michigan State University football player Jermaine Edmondson.

Despite all of that, Green refuses to be downbeat on his prospects and he is finding the positives in life.

"I'm in a great position in my life," Green said Sunday. "There's so many things going on in my world for me to sit and complain, 'I can't catch a break.' I'm living my dream.

"To say I can't catch a break I think that's disrespectful for everybody," he added. "How many people get to live their dreams? I'm not going to sit here and throw myself a pity party and say I can't catch a break. I'm fine. I get to joke around with these guys all day and get to do what I love for my country. I'm fine. I'm fine."

Whatever next for Green? Team USA put together an ugly win last night over Venezuela; surely they won't come up short in Rio and cap a terrible summer for Green?
