Jordan Poole becomes a vital cog in the Golden State Warriors machine
Jordan Poole got into the Warriors franchise when he was drafted 28th overall in the 2019 NBA draft. He was offered a $6.2 million deal for three years. Poole made his debut in NBA, coming off from the bench in a 122–141 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. He scored five points, two rebounds, two assists, and a steal. In the next game, he made it to the starting line-up for the Warriors against the Pelicans, scoring 13 points in the Warriors’ first win of the season. He set a then career-high 26 points in a 120–98 loss to the Phoenix Suns.
The 2021 was a breakout season for Jordan Poole, as his team went on to lift the Larry O’Brien trophy. With Klay Thompson injured, he got promoted as a starting shooting guard in the team.
Since then, it was no looking back for him. He scored 20 or more points in 18 of the final 20 games; 17 of those 20+ performances came in consecutive games. Due to his stellar performances over the season, The Warriors could add another NBA title to their name. Jordan has been up and down this season, as he lacks consistency. Still, the Warriors’ management continues to back him up.
