It’s been a tough year for the Golden State Warriors, and it’s been that way since the offseason.
Some even think that the Dubs’ issues on the court come from before the start of the campaign, and they blame Draymond Green for that.
For those who forgot, he sucker-punched Jordan Poole during practice in a now-infamous incident that may have taken a bigger toll on the team’s chemistry than some realized back then.
And, even though Green apologized to Poole both publically and privately, and it seemed like they were getting along just fine, a recent clip of Green may show the opposite.
Draymond was asking Poole to pass him the ball when he was wide-open in the middle of the paint.
Poole either refused or didn’t see him, and Green threw a massive tantrum right there on the court, giving up on the play and not even going back to play defense.

Of course, we all know that Green is an emotional person and a fierce competitor, which are two of the main reasons why he’s been such a crucial factor for the Warriors since his arrival.
But this is the last thing you want to see from any player, let alone one of your so-called veteran leaders, especially this deep into the season.
There’s a sense of urgency in the Bay area, and the Warriors should all be on the same page and pushing toward the same goal.
