Steve Kerr has tweeted and deleted a comment which appeared to criticise James Harden’s tendency to travel more than your regulation hitchhiker, while seemingly taking a shot at the NBA for letting him get away with it.
Our story begins on Thursday night, when the NBA posted a video of Harden putting moves on LaMarcus Aldridge.
Kerr thought the move was a blatant travel, and let the league know about it.

The only thing was, he didn’t mean to, as he explained at shootaround on Friday.
“I thought it was a direct message,” he told an amused gaggle of reporters. “My new iPhone is killing me.”

So there you have it, modern technology has claimed yet another middle-aged victim.
Full credit to Kerr for his candid and amusing account of what happened, as well as offering up the stories behind his other iPhone blunders.
