Golden State Warriors star Jordan Poole is no stranger to making headlines.
The 23-year-old is a supremely talented contributor on the court, but off the court is where he often generates the most news.
Recently, eagle-eyed fans noticed how Poole reacted after he saw some female Warriors fans in the stands.
The video largely speaks for itself:

“Bro trynna be mvp on and off the court,” one fan wrote.
“He got that dawg in him,” another added.
“This dude, bro,” a third fan chimed in.
This isn’t the first time Poole has landed in the news cycle for something like this. Between the way he acted when he saw two blondes sitting courtside, his shenanigans with his one-time Instagram model girlfriend and that whole situation with Zendaya – it’s one thing after another with him.
The man has no brakes when it comes to the ladies.
Big picture, it will be interesting to see what Poole is able to accomplish in 2022-23. Last year was something of a coming out party. Him being a key contributor to a championship team was just icing on the cake, and led to a massive payday for him over the summer.
But now is the time to back those big dollars up.
So far, Poole has regressed a bit. He is averaging 15.7 points per game on 40.7 percent shooting from the field and 31.3 percent shooting from beyond the arc. Last year he was averaging 18.5 points per game on 44.8 percent shooting from the field and 36.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc.

Fortunately, the season is still young.
Will Poole be able to get his mind right and return to the superstar-level play he was showing glimpses of in 2021-22?
Time will tell.
