Incorrigible veteran and champion Draymond Green punched his rising star teammate Jordan Poole. That’s a story in of itself but what really amplified the situation into international news status was the shocking leaked practice video clip that TMZ got its hands on. NBA agent Nate Jones and Ringer podcast superstar Big Wos stopped by for a late night emergency pod session about the goings on here. I may have talked as well.
On this podcast, we broach:
Are Nate and Wos Draymond apologists?
Why are NBA industry people obsessed with how the video was leaked?
Nate has an INTERESTING theory on who leaked the video.
Wos tries to land a fraught analogy. Does he succeed? Could anyone?
Was Draymond’s strike a “sucker punch”?
Why I would have paid more than 120K for the video to get it on House of Strauss.
The weird parasocial dynamic between NBA Twitter influencers and the players they project emotions onto.
My take on what it’s like when you’re facing the Draymond wrath in person.
