Jordan Poole discussed his relationships with his former Warriors teammates while speaking with the media over the weekend. When asked about the role Draymond Green played in his departure following their infamous preseason spat, last year, he said that he's focused on his current team.
"We're in Washington now," Poole told the reporter. "Playing with [Kyle Kuzma], great duo. Being able to really flourish, expand your game and help a new team. Help lead an entire group of guys, it's a challenge that we're up for… Everybody's locked in, wants to be here, start something that we can have that can be special."

Poole also discussed his relationship with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson specifically. He labeled them the best shooters of all time while revealing that he still feels he can call them any time he needs. “Those are the two greatest shooters of all time, in my opinion, personally,” Poole said. “It's just things that you learn in practice, in the game, on the road that you wouldn’t be able to learn not being in the mix. And I’m thankful for that. I'm grateful for that. You learn, you apply it to what your skill set [is], the things that you want to be able to be good at."
“I also built a relationship to where I can ask them. I can text Steph, I can text Klay, I can call them and just have a conversation. That doesn't leave, that doesn’t go anywhere," Poole continued. "If anything, I just know the plays that they run.”
