Jordan Poole is one of the most loved former Michigan Wolverines basketball players in recent memory.

From the day he stepped foot on campus, many onlookers knew he would be special.

Once he got his chance in the limelight, the truth quickly became apparent: they were right.

Poole plays the game with an infectious, youthful style reminiscent of his new backcourt mate with the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry.

Even Curry himself, the master of halfcourt shots, was beside himself after Poole’s latest impossible shot.

Unlike Poole’s famous buzzer beater to beat the Houston Cougars with Michigan in the NCAA Tournament, the shot completely swished this time around from 39 feet in the Bay Area.

Golden State has a big lead on Boston in the fourth quarter of Game 2.

Reactions to the shot were excitable as expected.

Poole is quickly endearing himself to audiences worldwide as a bonafide star alongside Curry and Klay Thompson, his backcourt mates.


Poole could be the x-factor for Golden State in their question to defeat a younger Celtics team. Klay Thompson has had some difficulties on defense, but Poole has stepped up his scoring in game two after he was told by teammates to relax and play his game like he did during the regular season.

Poole’s success even has many fans calling him the “Third Splash Brother,” referencing the famous duo of Thompson and Curry.

Not bad for a kid out of Milwaukee who came to John Beilein’s program as a solid prospect, but certainly not a five-star.

Here’s the shot one more time in glorious HD for your viewing pleasure.
