Green violent reaction

The 55-second video shows Green exchanging words with the 23-year-old Poole as he moves closer to him. Poole pushed him, but Green responded with a powerful punch, according to TMZ Sports.

However, Warriors general manager Bob Myers clarified that the issue will be solved internally, but the video leak has reportedly made things worse for the organization, especially for Green.

Responding to Green punching Pole, Curry said the forward, who is famous for his fiery personality, must work to resolve the situation by making it about teamwork, according to NBC Sports.

"Everything is important, how we handle this situation is important. How Draymond responds to the space that he needs to come back with the right frame of mind on doing the work, coming with the right energy, marking it about the team, like all those things are important."

Draymond Green, together with Curry, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala, have dominated the NBA since 2015 winning four titles in that span. Moreover, Curry, Thompson and Iguodala have been working behind the scenes to mediate between the two players before the situation derails team dynamics.
