Steve Kerr posts, then deletes tweet about Harden's stepback

The validity of Harden's move aside, the big takeaway is why the head coach of a team highly likely to repeat is tweeting about an opposing player.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr should consult with Kevin Durant about the logistical advantages of burner Twitter accounts.

Kerr, apparently looking at highlights and perusing his social media, made a comment about Houston guard James Harden's patented step-back - and whether he travels, or not.

It's an embarrassment. I think the league is so happy with all the scoring that it doesn't want to enforce stuff like that.

Kerr commented specifically on the replay from the Rockets' 102-91 victory at San Antonio, where Harden freezes a couple Spurs defenders with the move. 

The bigger story here, of course, is why exactly an NBA head coach -especially of a defending champion heavily favored to repeat - tweeting the NBA and basically subtweeting James Harden?

How petty do you have to be?
