At some point on Tuesday night, Jordan Bell made a purchase at the Warriors’ team hotel here. The exact item or items and amount of the bill is unclear. What isn’t, though, is who got unknowingly charged for it: assistant coach Mike Brown.
That, league sources say, was the reason for his team-issued one-game suspension
There was concern, sources say, that this wasn’t the first time Bell has pulled this maneuver on some unknowing member of the organization.
Was this a prank? A scam? A prank could be chalked up to immaturity and more easily forgiven. A scam could rip at the fabric of trust a team relies upon.
There’s obviously a huge difference in how quickly everyone will move on.
Another potential juicy question: What did Bell buy?
