Aftermath Warriors: Where is Draymond Green? How’s Jordan Poole?

SAN FRANCISCO — Bob Myers, Steve Kerr and Steph Curry spoke for 43 minutes in total on Thursday afternoon about the aftermath of Jordan Poole’s practice punch by Draymond Green. The most succinct and relevant quote came from Curry in the middle of his 14-minute session.

“JP’s (attitude has been) amazing,” Curry said. “There is nothing to justify the situation yesterday. I want to make that clear. It’s also something that we don’t think will derail our season and what we’re trying to build. That’s part of it with Draymond.”

Curry, more than Myers or Kerr, speaks for the locker room, and it will be the players in it who decide how quickly they forgive Green, how easily this tidal wave passes. That Curry quote captures the parameters of the situation as clearly as you’d ever expect in a press conference setting. The veteran leaders vouch for Poole and demand continued remorseful response from Green in the coming days and weeks but remain outwardly confident that the fences will be repaired in time for the pursuit of another championship.

Let’s see where everything is less than two weeks before the regular season.

What is Green’s punishment?

Myers chose not to announce the penalty, but there were hints. The general manager said he did not expect Green to miss games, which would rule out a suspension, although that was at least discussed, according to sources. If it is a fine, the maximum amount allowed is $50,000.
