Steph Curry has finally shared his take on the infamous incident between Jordan Poole and Draymond Green that has plagued the Golden State Warriors’ preseason campaign.
The Golden State Warriors face a season where they will need to defend the Championship that they won last season, and it would be fair to say that they did not have the best of starts to their preseason. At a time when the team morale in the group should be sky-high, rumors of an altercation between Jordan Poole and Draymond Green added to their atmosphere of tension.
It was rumored that the two Warriors superstars went loggerheads at each other during a practice session in the preseason. Tempers flared, and it was rumored that the verbal altercation became physical when Green hit Poole forcibly, which resulted in the session being called off immediately – a situation that reportedly arose courtesy of the pair’s contract situations.
Shams Charania of The Athletic that the tension in the camp has been at a high because of the contract situation reported it was reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic. While Poole will be signing a lucrative contract soon, it is being reported that Green will play out the rest of the season. However, amidst concerns of the Warriors suffering a psychological setback, Steph Curry has insisted that everything is all fine.
What did Steph Curry have to say about the reported situation?
Steph Curry – the Warriors’ leader and the franchise player – addressed the press as he insisted that the morale in the camp is not derailed as is being reported.
Speaking to the press ahead of the upcoming season, Curry put an end to allegations of Poole developing an attitude over the course of the summer and defended Green as well. “JP’s been great. There’s nothing that warranted the situation yesterday. I want to make that clear. It’s also something we feel like won’t derail our season and that’s with Draymond a part of that.”
The Warriors’ fans will certainly hope that is the case, as a high-profile bust-up between two starters on the team ahead of a new season certainly does not sound like music to the ears.
