This season, the Golden State Warriors are off to an amazing start, and there has been a noticeable improvement in team camaraderie from the previous season. Draymond Green made this comment in an open manner, which many took as a jab at Jordan Poole. Although it is undeniable that the relationship between Green and Poole made things difficult for the Warriors in the previous campaign, head coach Steve Kerr does not want the rookie guard held accountable for the team’s performance.
Kerr stated on 95.7 The Game, “I think it’s unfair for people to just point at Jordan [Poole].” That’s incorrect. Many factors caused last year’s chaos to spiral out of control. When Jordan was here, he was amazing. He contributed to our championship success. I detest that he receives any feedback. We’re all to fault for the various reasons why last year went awry.
Although the Warriors felt they had to handle the Poole problem for reasons of both chemistry and finances, Kerr would like to see it go. With the Wizards, Poole is now in a different circumstance, and the Warriors are going with Chis Paul.
As Kerr pointed out, a variety of factors contributed to the previous season’s failure, and he does not want to see Poole held accountable as he frequently has.
