Michigan and Michigan State are bitter, bitter rivals.
So the trash talk this season between Michigan State's Draymond Green and Warriors 2019 first-round pick Jordan Poole should be incredible.
The Warriors used the No. 28 pick on the the Michigan guard and Green's teammate, Andre Iguodala loved it.

While Green may give Poole some initial grief, it would be smart for the former Defensive Player of the Year to pump Poole up as much as possible. The Warriors will need Poole to step in right away and contribute. Klay Thompson's torn ACL and Kevin Durant's impending free agency make it imperative that all the young players on the Warriors roster perform at a high level.

Green may want to haze the Warriors newest rookie, but he needs him more than ever, so he should probably keep the ribbing to a minimum.
