Jordan Poole shares cryptic message after Draymond Green comments

This week, Draymond Green’s statements on a podcast rekindled the feud between Jordan Poole and him.

Things started when Green implied on Patrick Beverley’s podcast that he had a justification for behaving in the manner in which he did when he punched Poole last summer.

Naturally, some of Poole’s allies found that offensive. After that, his father publicly abused Green, and one of his closest friends posted vehemently on Instagram that Green was at fault.

Poole published a mysterious message on social media late on Wednesday that some people assume is directed at Green.

This summer, the Golden State Warriors dealt Chris Paul, then 38, to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Poole. Given that the company had just granted Poole a $100 million extension the year before, it was a startling change of events.

Undoubtedly, the transaction was motivated in large part by Poole’s toxic relationship with Green, but it wasn’t the only factor. According to all reports, Klay Thompson didn’t think much of Poole. Steve Kerr didn’t either.

Despite Stephen Curry’s best efforts, Poole was not always easy to get along with, as evidenced by a few irritated instances during the previous season.

For his part, Poole seems especially displeased that he wasn’t given more praise for how he handled Green punching him.

“I don’t speak on it much,” Poole said in an interview. “But I will say that … you’ve got to have a different level of maturity. We had a season to play. You’re going to have to play with these people in the locker room, and that’s why I said maturity is a big thing.

“What I know for a fact is there aren’t many people who would be able to think logically and understand the magnitude of the situation, you know?”

Many people believed Poole’s trade would put an end to his conflict with Green.

It seems to be just getting started right now.

Will Green and Poole ever be able to move past their pasts? Only time will tell.
