Jordan Poole has a message for Dubnation and the Bay

Jordan Poole was drafted by the Warriors in 2019. Ever since he has joined, he hasn’t seen the Dubs at their best. However, this season is different. The Warriors look like their old selves and are doing while awaiting the return of Klay Thompson and James Wiseman.

After the game, Poole sat with the media, and talked about his game. Despite his strong preseason showing, Poole had been hot and cold in the six games so far. Talking about his performance tonight, Poole says he saw it coming a few nights ago, and he surely delivered.
