Draymond Green is public enemy number one already in 2022 for what he did to Jordan Poole in practice.
TMZ obtained the footage of Draymond Green punching Jordan Poole at Wednesday’s Warriors practice and it was even worse than previously described. In the video, Green approaches Poole for a confrontation, which forced Poole to push him away.
Green immediately throws a punch that connected with Poole’s face, knocking him against the wall.
Warriors GM Bob Myers said that Green apologized to the team on Thursday and any punishment for the controversial big man would be handled internally.
On Thursday, former NFL tight end Shannon Sharpe took to his show and had a fiery response to the leaked video and he did not mince words when he called out Draymond for his actions. He also added that Poole may have never been in a fight before because he should’ve knocked out Green as soon as he saw him approaching him with bad intentions.
At one point during the below video, Sharpe accidentally said, “That’s some bullshit,” before apologizing for cursing.
The troubling video could increase the pressure on the Warriors to punish Green more harshly. It remains unclear what internal discipline he faces now.
The Warriors, who beat the Celtics in six games in last season’s NBA Finals. open their title defense on Oct. 18th.
