Joe Buck Misidentified Brooks Koepka’s Girlfriend After U.S. Open Win, and It Was Super Awkward (Video)
Golf Fans Dug Up Brooks Koepka’s Old Tweets About LeBron James After He Won U.S. Open (Tweets)
Back in June of 2011, six whole years before he would win the U.S. Open, a 21-year-old golfer by the name of Brooks Koepka fired off some hot takes about LeBron James that proved to be really, really wrong.
Naturally, after Sunday’s win at Erin Hills, golf fans went back and dug up those old tweets so the whole world could have a laugh at Koepka’s expense.
In those old tweets, Koepka, who was still playing at Florida State at the time, predicted that LeBron would NEVER win a title after his Miami Heat lost to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals. He also questioned whether LeBron was really the best player in the NBA.
We’re going to insert the screenshots here just in case Brooks decides to go back and delete some of the stupid things he said on Twitter back in the day. However, at time of writing the tweets were still there.
Have a look:
So what did Koepka, who by then was a professional athlete himself, say when LeBron and the Miami Heat won back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013? While he didn’t specifically mention his earlier trash talk, Koepka was very gracious:
What a difference a year makes!
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, here’s what LeBron had to say about Koepka’s U.S. Open win:
