Golden State Warriors: Steve Kerr must keep faith in Jordan Poole

Hopes were high when Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers picked Jordan Poole 28th overall in the draft, but injuries to Klay Thompson and later Stephen Curry have seen the former Michigan man take an expanded role this season.

However, unfortunately, after 13 games Poole hasn’t demonstrated the ability of a dead-eye shooter, shooting 27.3% from the floor and 26.3% from deep. Poole was benched after a lackluster 1-8 shooting display.

From fulfilling a role of a complementary scorer for Michigan last season, Poole was quickly thrown into the deep end as a professional having to guard the likes of Andrew Wiggins, Russell Westbrook and CJ McCollum within the space of a week.
