Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors opened up about the preseason altercation between Draymond Green and Jordan Poole on a recent episode of The Ringer’s podcast.
“I can’t tell you how many conversations we had in training camp when the incident happened, to the beginning of the season when you’re trying to make sure everybody’s on the same page in terms of expectations on a daily basis of how you deal with personal relationships, how you try to be professional when it comes to the job that we’re all here to do, dealing with some of the uncomfortable nature of the remnants of that situation. Because we always talked about this between JP and Draymond, being able to try to rectify the situation, have the necessary conversations. From a coach and front office standpoint, I’m sure you could argue about should there have been a suspension or not. We had so many conversations and so many kinda back-and-forths in that moment about what the right course of action was, and there were a lot of variables that you have to take into play… So I felt like there’s no regret there. It’s just a matter like it was an unfortunate situation that everybody was put in.”
Curry gave a thorough response, appearing to recognize the gravity of the circumstance while also acknowledging that there is no cause for remorse in the way it was handled because of how dedicated everyone was to trying to make the best decision.
