There was ‘tension’ with Jordan Poole following the Golden State Warriors’ Game 4 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, according to NBC Sports’ Kerith Burke.
“The visitors locker room is really cramped, so when that music went off, all of the other players were listening as well,” Burke said. “… It was like all eyes and ears were on Jordan right there, and it just heightened the tension. … I was like, ‘Jordan, we know your work ethic is good.
“When you feel like you’re in a little bit of a funk – when things don’t seem normal, what’re you doing? Are you getting back in the gym?’ And he said, ‘Well, my work ethic doesn’t change. My routine doesn’t change. Maybe opportunity changes, but you can only control what you can control.’ So, the frustration very clear coming through from Jordan Poole.”
