It was by far Poole’s most productive game of the preseason, having only scored 12 points in the last two games.

And Poole’s performance caught the attention of many, including Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant, who retweeted a Poole highlight and captioned it: “Who thinks of doing that shit #boynice”

Former NBA All-Star Isaiah Thomas also retweeted the footage. saying: “TIRES GAME!!!”

And Poole’s head coach Steve Kerr was equally optimistic about the 23-year-old’s performance after the game, saying: “He’s someone we’ll be relying on for many years to come and that’s exciting.

“We have a lot of good young players but Jordan is by far the most advanced.”

This all comes with contract extension talks lurking in the background and with social media still awash with talk of the much-publicized altercation between Poole and Green.

Footage released by TMZ showed Green throwing Poole to the ground.

Green has since decided to retire from the team, telling CNN on Sunday: “I was wrong for my actions on Wednesday. And for that, I apologized to my team, I apologized to Jordan, and I wanted to go one step further.”

Green went on to say he believed he “failed as a man.”

Green said: “I failed as a leader and that in turn led to it. And so I have to take personally what it entails. I have to deal with it and keep improving as I want.

“Like I said before, you rebuild trust and relationships in that dressing room and that’s ultimately what’s most important to me.

“And making sure that this team can come together and compete at the absolute highest level that we know we need to do what we set out to do.”
