AP source: Warriors' Draymond Green fights Poole in practice

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Golden State Warriors star forward Draymond Green fought with guard Jordan Poole during practice Wednesday, according to a person with direct knowledge of the incident.

It is indeed missing hints of purple and red to fully grasp that name. In fact, the upcoming Aqua 5s are more akin to early-era Chris Paul Player Exclusives that Jordan Brand graced him with during his years with the New Orleans Hornets.
