Before Steve Kerr was the head coach of the Warriors, he was an NBA analyst for TNT. And, when he was an NBA analyst for TNT, he was required to have takes.

Well, it turns out Kerr once made a quite prescient comment.

In 2014, Kerr said if he had to roll with one player in a Game 7 on the road, he’d go with LeBron James—the same man he will try to stop from winning a Game 7 on the road this Sunday night. 

Pretty cool! I think most people would agree with that.

While we’re at it, let’s read more nice things about LeBron from Steve Kerr’s Twitter.

Old tweets: they can actually be fun to read and not ruin people’s lives.
