Golden State forward Andre Iguodala is setting the record straight on the Jordan Poole, Draymond Green altercation. The two teammates were seen in a scuffle at practice on Wednesday, leading to headlines throughout the NBA world.
Many on social media were quick to blame the youngster, Poole, who teammates reportedly said “has changed” since entering contract negotiations with the team.
“Draymond was “apologetic” after his altercation with Jordan Poole, but teammates have noticed a change in Poole’s behavior throughout camp amid contract extension talks”
Iggy wasn’t having the Poole slander, and he let his thoughts on the altercation be known.

While he backed Poole amid the recent criticism, he didn’t necessarily hang Draymond out to dry. Iguodala posted a message showing some support of Green, though it was not nearly the resounding endorsement sent for JP.
All doesn’t appear to be well in Title Town. We’ll see if these tensions continue to affect the team throughout the season as they defend their championship.
