Members of the Golden State Warriors recently addressed the media after an altercation in practice took place between Warriors teammates Draymond Green and Jordan Poole. Golden State Warriors General Manager Bob Myers, head coach Steve Kerr, and superstar Stephen Curry all spoke on the incident without revealing too much information:
“Look, it’s the NBA in professional sports these things happen, nobody likes it we don’t condone it,” Myers said. “Draymond apologized to the team this morning, Jordan was there in the room.
Head coach Steve Kerr added: “I’m not going to answer anything more because Bob already answered what needed to be answered. The only thing I will say is that Jordan has been fantastic throughout camp. There was a report that I was made aware of last night that someone put out there that Jordan had an attitude in camp. Nothing could be further from the truth, he’s been fantastic. So, disappointing to see this information out there, but I wanted to make sure I set the record straight on that. Everything else, we will handle internally and go from there.”
Stephen Curry also reiterated Kerr’s sentiment about Poole’s behavior, saying, “JP’s been great. There’s nothing that warrented the situation yesterday. We made that clear, but it’s also something that we feel like will not derail our season and what we’re trying to build and that’s with Draymond as a part of that.”
It seems that for now at least, the Warriors have it under control and we’l; have to wait and see what comes about from the situation.
