VIDEO: Jordan Poole goes full T-Mac with sick off-the-backboard oop to self
Golden State Warriors guard Jordan Poole had a redemption tour of sorts last NBA season. And it looks like he’s not done yet.
After their early exit, Poole has continually kept in game shape, even joining a basketball event organized by former Warriors star Jamal Crawford in Seattle. Not only that, Poole has been making highlight play after highlight play, including channeling NBA legend Tracy McGrady for a self-alley-oop off the backboard.

Not bad at all, young guy.
After a rocky rookie year for the Warriors, Poole was relegated to the G League. After several weeks, he got the call-up to return to the NBA. He played a key role for the Warriors last season, earning consistent minutes from coach Steve Kerr. He even led the squad in scoring a few times and was one of the main scoring options when Curry was out or on the bench.
Poole, who starred for Michigan in college, averaged 12.0 points, good for fourth best on the Warriors behind Curry, Andrew Wiggins, and Kelly Oubre Jr.
With Jordan Poole playing at a high level of confidence, look for him to assume an even bigger role next season. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he becomes a dark horse for Sixth Man of the Year.
