Jordan Poole ain’t messing around.
During the Golden State Warriors’ title defense, a physical altercation between Draymond Green and Jordan Poole marred the beginning of training camp.
The incident, which was caught on camera, not only had a significant impact on Poole, but also disrupted the team’s overall chemistry. As time progressed, tensions continued to rise between Poole and the veteran core of the team, including Steph Curry, Clay Thompson, and Draymond Green, leading to their elimination in the Western Conference Semi-Finals.
Adding to the drama, a viral video emerged showing Jordan Poole training in a boxing gym, showcasing his determination to bounce back from the situation.

In an effort to resolve the issue, the Warriors decided to trade Poole to the Washington Wizards.
However, this move has not put an end to the ongoing tension, as both Draymond Green and Jordan Poole’s father, Anthony, have made public statements regarding the friction.
Draymond Green recently reignited the controversy by elaborating on why he felt the need to resort to violence against his former teammate.
What unnecessary drama all these months later.
