Looks like the summer of 2022 is here again. It happened as Draymond Green and Jordan Poole made headlines again on Wednesday because of their highly controversial fight last summer. Well, it wasn’t really a fight. It was like Green taking down his Golden State Warriors teammate with a hard punch to the face.
It all started with Green recounting the incident on a recent episode of Patrick Beverley’s podcast. This did not go down well with Poole’s father, who came out and called Drummond a “bitch”. Even the Washington Wizards star himself fell victim to an oblique shot at his ex-Warriors teammate.
NBA Twitter is surprisingly invested in this resurrected beef. were keyboard warriors quick to clown Drummond for his role in all of this:

“I just don’t kill people. … Dialogue definitely happens over time and you don’t usually get excited by something so fast. … We know things you don’t say between men Are.”

However, other fans also started hating on Jordan Poole (and his father), who has since been sent down to Washington:
We all blame Poole and we stick with Drummond

So I guess the rumors about what Poole said are true ?

Drummond would honestly beat Poole’s dad ?

Even Poole’s father is catching stray animals here. Then again, it was Mr. Poole included himself in it, so you can’t really blame the fans.
I wonder what the Warriors have to say about all this. Once again, his talisman is caught up in the controversy he started. Then again, the team clearly isn’t as worried as they were last offseason. At least they won’t have to deal with Jordan Poole now that they’ve sent him packing. However, he still has to worry about Drummond. They’ve been doing this for over a decade, so I’m pretty sure they’re not going to panic here anymore.
