9:46 AM PT — Draymond has found himself in a Twitter war with Jordan Poole’s dad … clapping back at the guy for calling him a “bitch,” and denying he ducked him all last season.
“That’s so cute,” Draymond said just minutes ago. “It’s impossible to avoid you [at] an arena for a year champ. I got get my family from that family room every game.”
As for the name-calling, Draymond hints at what happened with Jordan … saying, “And stop using those words, they usually don’t go over well amongst men.”
Draymond Green says his mid-practice attack on Jordan Poole was not the result of one single comment … claiming his former teammate was pushing his buttons way before the altercation.
The Golden State Warriors star addressed the October 2022 incident on Barstool Sports’ “Pat Bev Podcast” this week … and he explained he isn’t the type of guy to just unleash at the drop of a dime.
“I don’t just hit people,” Green said. “Dialogue happens and dialogue happens over the course of time. You usually ain’t just triggered by something like that fast to that degree. This is a team, ain’t nobody on my team triggering me in an instant.”
Green didn’t disclose what was said prior to the punch, but insinuates Poole crossed the line.
“We know stuff that you don’t say amongst men,” he added. “We know things that you have to stand on. As I’ve admitted before, I was wrong in the way I handled it for the situation where we were.”
Draymond Green Allegedly Called Poole 'Bitch' at Practice Before Punch
Draymond went on to say he has no hard feelings toward Poole … and wishes him well at his new home with the Washington Wizards.
Despite the olive branch, Poole’s dad didn’t seem to care for his comments on the altercation … going off on Draymond in a fiery tweet late Tuesday night.
“I’m stand on this that’s is some bs,” Anthony Poole said. “Jp was his guy and he avoid me all last yr.”
“He is a soft as bitch and I’m standing on this and he didn’t apologize to me and my wife. So he lame and me and him can meet anytime he want.”
Draymond has yet to respond to Poole’s dad … but if you thought this saga was over after the trade, think again.
