I come from the era of the open gym at Sobrante Park, the midnight league at Brookfield, the pickup hoop at Mosswood Park, and the hoop-it-up tournaments in the Colosseum parking lot. I wasn’t very good, but I was there and I know for a fact that someone who gets their jaw shattered at basketball isn’t the latest news.
Now, staying with that Street Code concept, what’s supposed to happen next in the Golden State Warriors situation? One of a few options. The simplest solution would be for Jordan Poole to fight Draymond Green and get his retaliation for Green punching him in the face on Wednesday. The size difference doesn’t make this fair and to Green’s advantage. This tends to escalate the situation even further for disadvantaged people like Poole, if you know what I mean. Since he cannot achieve reciprocity with his hands. So another possibility is that Poole’s brothers, cousins, patnas – anyone – are jumping on green in retaliation. This, or one of Poole’s tall homies, anyone Green’s height or larger would fight on behalf of Poole.
But that’s what makes it so outrageous. Green is the big homie. He should be the protector. They love him for playing that role, and he’s reliable at it. He gets away with a lot of his behaviors because he adds value, especially in this area. With Green as Big Bro, your back is always covered. He should fight for Poole. Don’t attack him.
It’s a big responsibility, big homie. A valued one. And Green is usually great at it. Now he has lost that status. He betrayed his post.
