I wonder how Herro’s stats would look if he had to play again starters the majority of the time. Great payday.
PointZ pay, defense is forWow. Not a bad payday. Smart's speed-dialing his agent ...
This is hilarious (but I suspect it's a parody account given the "ll" in "Centrall"): "REPORT: Draymond Green got mad at Jordan Poole in practice because Poole called him a “Triple Single” after scoring on him."
Kermit didn’t seek out Rudy, he turned and saw some dude running up on him so in that regard they aren’t alike. Draymond’s intention was clearly to punch Poole in the face.Wow. Kermit Washington/Rudy T material.
That's a vicious punch. That should be a serious suspension. Kills me the Celtics lost to this dipshit. Go ahead and talk about this punch on your next podcast, Draymond.Here's the video embedded in a tweet.
its absoulty not shocking that TMZ got the footage.. Wonder who sold it to them....Here's the video embedded in a tweet.
I joked after the Finals Game 2 that the NBA had turned a finals game over to a deranged elderly man who ran around tackling people.That's a vicious punch. That should be a serious suspension. Kills me the Celtics lost to this dipshit. Go ahead and talk about this punch on your next podcast, Draymond.
Seems pretty cut and dry. That was a punch that could have done some serious damage. I don't care if Poole went full diva on the team, it was a ridiculous action for Draymond to take (and a pretty ironic one for the trash talker not to be able to handle return fire). If that happened in a game with more eyeballs on it live, you're talking a big suspension.I mean, that's assault. Like, in nearly any other profession if you do this to a coworker you get fired at the minimum and cops are probably called.
I'm sure they'll be coming, at least from former players.My barometer on this incident is from other current and former NBA players not the fans. It will be interesting to get their response to this, if we get any comments at all.
It's why I couldn't care less about what the players, especially those who weren't even there, say on this. Clearly, we know practice fights happen all the time but that doesn't make it right or justifiable. If Marcus Smart popped Brogdon in the face like that, I wouldn't feel ok about it because Perk told me this stuff happens and/or Brogdon was mouthing off or whatever.There's something kind of funny about the players circling the wagons around the leaker being the problem here.
This. We've all played pickup hoops and probably every single one of us has had some kind of skirmish where people angrily push each other. That is what I was expecting when I first saw this story so I initially thought nothing of it. That punch was a Ron Artest move, a clearly crossing of the line and downright criminal act.Pretty telling that after the incident, Kerr, Iguodala, and Steph all forcefully came to Poole’s defense. This was before the TMZ vid had leaked, but after Klutch shill Chris Haynes had sleazily tried to victim-blame Poole (implying he was asking for it by being, like, young and cocky or some shit). Their comments about Dray, by contrast, were a lot more measured.
Meanwhile, in Bob Myers’ presser, he kept intoning how relieved he was Poole wasn’t seriously hurt, which should have given us an inkling of how ugly the assault was. I mean, fuck, Dray, you have 50 lbs. on the guy — if he shoves you in the chest, can you not just shove him back in the chest? I honestly cannot fathom what evil demon possesses someone that strong to haul off and punch another person in the face (unless, like, their life depends on it).
And what’s even shittier is, you know he would have restrained himself if instead of 190# Poole it were, say, David West or Boogie Cousins.
Who knows what Lacob’s thinking right now. but when you’ve lost Steph, Andre, Kerr, and Myers…
That's a take I'll give him that -I'm sure they'll be coming, at least from former players.
This and the Trae Tweet are telling. Fans, especially those of other clubs already largely despise Green so the reactions here make sense.
Now we just need KD to weigh in…rooting for maximum chaos hereThis and the Trae Tweet are telling. Fans, especially those of other clubs already largely despise Green so the reactions here make sense.
However when other current players are expressing these views, its a real issue.
