The Golden State Warriors were definitely living up to their name the other day – but they were going to war with one another.
This has led the Warriors to weigh the idea of suspending Green right as the new season looms for the champions.
To hear of Green getting heated isn’t surprising, he’s got one of the hottest heads in the league.
But him getting into it with his own teammate is a bit of a shock and it has many wondering what’s going on behind the scenes with Golden State.

Anthony Slater made a great point about Green, Poole, and their argument, saying, “Draymond Green is like the flagbearer of the legends era. Jordan Poole is a flagbearer of the next era.”
When you think about it in this context, you can understand why Green and Poole would butt heads.
Flagbearers Fighting For The Future
Everyone knows that Green has been a pivotal part of the Warriors’ great success over the last decade.
He has been crucial for the team’s defense and its chemistry.
Meanwhile, Poole is seen as part of the new generation of Golden State.
Insiders say Poole has been rising to the occasion and knows how important he can be for the team.
This has led to a situation that is different and new for Green and other players on the squad.
Two eras of the Warriors are on the team and they will need to find unity as soon as possible.
