Warriors' Jordan Poole serves as witness for wedding at Chase Center

Warriors' Jordan Poole serves as witness for wedding at Chase Center

Warriors rookie Jordan Poole was at Chase Center on Saturday. He wasn't getting up shots at the practice facility, which is still closed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Standing outside the Warriors' arena, Poole served as a witness for the wedding between Lindsay Hirsch and Dustin Schneider.

Poole, wearing a mask while standing a safe distance away from the bride and groom, was wearing a custom Warriors jersey with the couple's last name and the date of the wedding.

Poole posted on his Instagram Story, and said being there for Lindsay and Dustin's big day was one of the "dopest" things he has been a part of.

So how did this all come together? The San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau said he received an email from the bride and passed it along to the Warriors.

According to The Chronicle, Lindsay and Dustin were supposed to get married at Walt Disney World in Orlando -- ironically, the proposed location for the resumption of the current NBA season. In their search for alternate location, they decided to see if they could say "I do" outside Chase Center. As you can see, their plan worked out.

“I couldn’t say no to that,” said Poole told The Chronicle's Ann Killion, who attended the wedding.

As it turns out, Poole and Dustin have something in common: They both attended the University of Michigan, Killion wrote.

Not a bad way for Poole to spend part of his Memorial Day weekend.

What Warriors' Klay Thompson repeatedly told Damion Lee during rehab

What Warriors' Klay Thompson repeatedly told Damion Lee during rehab

Damion Lee tore his right ACL on Nov. 27, 2013 during his junior season at Drexel University.

The Warriors guard then tore his left ACL on Dec. 23, 2016 while playing for the Maine Red Claws -- the Boston Celtics' G League affiliate.

Klay Thompson tore his left ACL during Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

"We've had several conversations before about rehab in regards to the ACL," Lee said this week on the "Runnin' Plays" podcast with Kerith Burke and Grant Liffmann. "He'd always joke, 'Damn, D-Lee. I don't know how you did this twice because this is a lot.'

"It's cool to see what he's been through and now wanting to come back and go all out."

What kind of 2020-21 season does Lee expect from Klay when the three-time NBA champion finally returns to game action?

"I feel like he wants to show people that he is the best two-way guard in the league," Lee said. "He's done it before. He's in a pretty good mind space. I think he's just ready to go out there and play."

Klay wasn't around the team a lot last season. But when he was at Chase Center, he made his presence felt.

"There were a lot of times where he'd just pull younger guys aside and give guys little tidbits," Lee explained. "It's unique to see. Everyone is so used to seeing Klay being quiet or reserved. Hearing him actually speak up and talk and give some input is huge.

"That's a huge step -- not only for him but the team and a lot of the younger guys seeing him as a big brother and as an influence."

Watch Warriors' Steph Curry adorably teach son Canon to golf on beach

Watch Warriors' Steph Curry adorably teach son Canon to golf on beach

The thing Steph Curry probably loves more than basketball is his family … and golf. Golf is probably a close second, but the man is obsessed with the game. So what happens when the Warriors’ superstar introduces his son Canon to it? Well, cuteness … obviously.

I know, it’s the cutest thing you will see today.

Curry will be playing once again in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament this weekend in Lake Tahoe. It’ll be his eighth appearance if you can understand how much he loves it. 

We could all assume Steph is looking forward to the day both he and Canon could truly enjoy the greens together. He’s obsessed with the game. So much so, he would think about it during basketball.

"I think I think about golf too much -- and that's a problem,” he said in an episode of ‘Stephen vs The Game’. “Like, during a game, yeah. The game of golf just gets under my skin.”

Steph might not have touched a club until the age of 10, which is well after he started toying around on the court, but per usual, he excelled at it.

Still, he admitted he was “haunted” by the game -- a notion his wife Ayesha mentioned.

Either way, this important aspect of his life will be exciting to hand down to young Canon.
