Joe Lacob Finally Admits What Caused Draymond Green, Jordan Poole Situation

Obviously, the Golden State Warriors’ season didn’t finish the way they had hoped.

However, given the disastrous beginning they had, it was difficult to see how things may have turned out differently.

Draymond Green confessed that he struggled to act as a leader later in the season because he realized he had let his team down following their violent fight with Jordan Poole.

Most people have believed that Poole’s apparent conflict with Green may have driven the Warriors to make that move after they parted ways with Poole.

In light of this, team owner Joe Lacob said to Tim Kawakami that, although being a legitimate worry, he is convinced they could have resolved their differences and coexisted in the locker room.

“I don’t want to say absolutely that’s true, I think it’s fair to say there was some level of concern going forward whether that would be something that would work out,” Lacob said. “To be honest with you, I think it would have worked out and could have worked out. But I think it is fair to say, in order to make the numbers work next year, someone is probably going to be the odd man out. It just turned out, and it wasn’t planned, that it was Jordan. I really think Jordan’s a great player and we’re going to miss him. I know he had a tough playoffs, but he actually had a pretty good year.”

Furthermore, we cannot overlook the reality that they had to make a difficult decision nonetheless since they needed to clear some debt if they intended to keep Green for the long term.

Throughout the course of the season, there were numerous allegations of Poole getting in the faces of several veterans, and he also appeared to be unhappy with coach Steve Kerr.

He now has the ideal chance to establish himself and become one of the league’s top scorers in Washington.

While Chris Paul is one of the best point guards in the history of the game, the Warriors took a major risk by signing him because Steve Kerr’s offense doesn’t quite fit Chris Paul’s style.
