Following his selection in the draft, a reporter asked if he’d become a “splash nephew” playing alongside Klay Thompson and Steph Curry.
“Something like that,” Poole said at the time.
He added: “I’m definitely a little young but I’m splash something for sure.”
That certainly ended up being the case.
Poole is now playing in his first playoffs and he’s been making every game count.
His average is 17 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 3.9 assists.
He has started in 5 of 21 games and has impressed fans and viewers with some phenomenal shot selection and impressive three-pointers.
In fact, he nailed an incredible trey during Game 5, sinking a wild shot right as the third quarter ended.
Fans of the Warriors have fallen in love with Poole but now the entire league and millions more are able to see just how special he is.
The best thing about Poole on the Warriors is that head coach Steve Kerr has found a great place for him.
Some people feared there wouldn’t be space for Poole considering the team already has some of the best shooters in the league.
But Kerr has made it work and Poole’s work has only made the team so much stronger.
