Reports of a fist fight between Golden State Warriors Draymond Green and Jordan Poole are making the rounds, and discipline, especially for Green who reportedly punched Poole in the face, is likely from the NBA. But Doug is good with everything, from soup to nuts. He believes championship level teams need guys who will set the right tone in the locker room, and he thinks Green is just the guy to handle that role for the Warriors. A little friction in the preseason can actually help bring a team together.

Doug Gottlieb: “If you want to win big, you’ve got to have somebody that other teams are a little scared of, he may be a bit of an A-hole, but he’s YOUR A-hole...and sometimes they’re needed to keep people in line even in their own locker room. I got no problem.”
