Jordan Poole is having a rough first year with the Washington Wizards.
Despite only having played in 11 games so far with his new squad, he is already being used as trade bait. That is less than ideal.
While things are clearly not going Poole’s way on the court, things may have just taken a turn for him off it. In a positive direction.
On Friday, model Rubi Rose announced that she planned to be around in D.C. that day.
DC tonight … 🥂

Understandably, given Poole’s history with the likes of Ice Spice, folks had some strong reactions.
They immediately took to social media to address the matter:

Given how Poole played that one time when he spotted two blondes sitting courtside, and considering what happens any time he comes across a pretty female fan, folks expecting what they were expecting is unsurprising.
He is just that kind of character.

Will Rubi Rose’s presence at this Wizards game be the catalyst that turns Poole’s whole year around?
Time will tell.
