The NBA season hasn't even started, but it seems tempers and emotions have begun to rise as one of the biggest stories in the NBA over the last couple of days, regarding Draymond Green and Jordan Poole, got its follow-up with the actual video of the incident leaking online.

Brothers fight?

Two days ago, Shams Charania stirred NBA Twitter as he reported that Warriors stars Draymond Green and Jordan Poole got into a physical altercation at practice.

Since then, a lot has been said about the incident. Draymond publically apologized, Poole got criticized for behaving differently and demanding a new, hefty contract while their teammates and coaching staff tried to downplay the whole situation.

Knockout

It seemed like nothing more than a small fine or suspension for Draymond was going to happen, but with the video of the actual fight leaking just now, it's highly likely that there is more to come from this situation.

TMZ got their hands on the footage, and let's just say the whole brawl between the two looks much worse than we expected.

In the clip, we can see Draymond getting into Poole's face, only for the young guard to push the veteran away. Green, being the hot head he is, didn't appreciate that, as he swung hard and connected, knocking Jordan down to the ground. Everybody would quickly interfere and separate the two, but the scenes were pretty ugly.

Luckily Poole wasn't hurt, as he was in good spirits after the practice, but this whole incident raises the question of how the Golden State Warriors handle this situation.

As the defending champions, the Warriors are nothing less ambitious to repeat, but with the whole league improving, that will be no easy task. Both Draymond and Poole played major roles in their championship run, but the entire contract situation and battle for the max dollars have obviously brought tensions into the locker room despite the glorious end to last season.

What the Warriors will do and whether they will recover and make another championship run is up for debate, but it will for sure be fun to watch.
