In a recent appearance on “Shay Shay Club“, Johnson said:
“He was definitely wrong. You can think of it as pushing and grabbing the jersey, all that. … Draymond knows better because he’s a great leader. He’s the one. a wonderful, intelligent young man. Jordan Poole, Draymond, just like you. Drafted late, must prove himself.”
“Draymond was furious that he didn’t make it to the first round. He used that to say ‘hey, I’ll cheer myself up and I’ll show everyone’. Jordan Poole was the same way. he’s talking about ‘ah, I don’t regret’. Yes, he has. He did. Draymond regrets it… If he could, he would take it back because that’s not who he is, not with his teammates. “
“Things will never be the same, and both of them know it, no matter what they say, because families are involved… Their camp is also divided now, that’s what People don’t realize.”
“Just because Steph and Klay are sitting there and Steve is a great coach, I think they’ll be fine. … I don’t think that’s going to stop them from going to the championship.”
Johnson’s comments are worth noting. He’s one of the greatest players in NBA history. He knows how to lead teams to championships.
Many questioned whether this would distract the Warriors. They have been inconsistent to start the season. The Warriors currently have the worst defense in the league, allowing for an average of 124 points per game.
