Draymond Green shakes off backlash for punching teammate Jordan Poole: ‘Look at all the upsides’
It’s been about two weeks since then Golden State Warriors Striker Draymond Green punches teammate Jordan Paul in training.
Green received a lot of backlash considering nature of punch – It came from close range after the two words exchanged.
But the 11-year-old vet isn’t worried about the backlash – frankly because he didn’t read the words against him.
“I don’t read a lot of tweets at all,” Green said on NBA on TNT Tuesday night. Via TMZ Sports. “And so I’ve been getting goosebumps at home with my kids. If you want me to be honest with you, I still don’t know how much the world might think it blew up.”
Green described the incident as “one… [his] The worst moments” but advised him “to look at all the gains.”
He was fined for the punch and voluntarily walked away from the team for a few days – he was not suspended.
Paul recently signed a four-year extension with the team, so Green and Paul are working to better resolve their differences, if it hasn’t already.
If there’s one thing that will help, it’s winning – again. Green and Paul won the NBA championship last season—Green’s fourth, and Paul’s first—and will begin their quest for a repeat Tuesday night at 10 p.m. against the team. Los Angeles Lakers.
