The back and forth between the two parties went on.
The conflict between Draymond Green and Jordan Poole’s father doesn’t seem to be close to being resolved any time soon.
This week’s “Pat Bev Podcast” episode of Barstool Sports featured the Golden State Warriors player talking about the confrontation he had with Poole.
Green asserted that his then-teammate was pushing his buttons prior to the altercation that resulted in him punching Poole in the face in October 2022.
“I don’t just hit people,” Green said. “Dialogue happens and dialogue happens over the course of time.
“You usually ain’t just triggered by something like that fast to that degree. This is a team, ain’t nobody on my team triggering me in an instant.
“We know stuff that you don’t say amongst men. We know things that you have to stand on. As I’ve admitted before, I was wrong in the way I handled it for the situation where we were.”
Green respond’s to Poole’s dad
Anthony Poole, Jordan Poole’s father, expressed his displeasure with Green’s remarks by criticizing Draymond on Twitter late on Tuesday night.
“I’m stand on this that’s is some bs,” Anthony Poole said. “Jp was his guy and he avoid me all last yr.”
“He is a soft as bitch and I’m standing on this and he didn’t apologize to me and my wife. So he lame and me and him can meet anytime he want.”
Never one to back down, Draymond denied avoiding Poole’s father all season in his response.
“That’s so cute,” Draymond said. “It’s impossible to avoid you [at] an arena for a year champ. I got get my family from that family room every game.
“And stop using those words, they usually don’t go over well amongst men.”
