Snoop Dogg made quite a fantastic prediction about Jordan Poole during the final moments of Game 1 between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers. As we all know, Stephen Curry and LeBron James have matched up again in a much-awaited second-round playoff series.
The Warriors are the defending champions and were expected by many to win the first game of this series. However, they ended up losing in a manner that no one could see coming. None with the exception of Snoop, With that being said, let us take a closer look at the prediction he made and how accurate he was.
Snoop Dogg predicted that Jordan Poole would miss the final shot
It is near impossible to predict how a game could turn out. While it is certainly possible to gamble on which team is going to win or by how much, there is no way of finding out how the final possession would go down before it actually did.

Nonetheless, Snoop was able to predict the final possession for the Golden State Warriors while trying to defend home court against the Los Angeles Lakers, “We (The Lakers) are going to be probably doubling Steph and somebody else is going to get open. Jordan Poole keep shooting it. I like the way you been missing it brother.”
Dogg didn’t hold back his taunts and showed support for the team he was supporting. Interestingly, the words he spoke turned out to be nearly prophetic. Golden State was down by 3 points as Steph brought the ball up the floor. He was instantly doubled by two Lakers, which makes sense considering he is the best player on the Warriors.
Therefore, he had no choice but to pass it to Draymond Green, who whipped it across to Jordan Poole. Poole had a good look and let the three-pointer fly. This ended up missing and costing the Warriors this game. Perhaps he should have looked for a better shot considering GSW still had around 8 seconds to shoot the final shot.
In any case, the game then turned to free throws and the Lakers ended up winning. This was quite a surprising turn of events for all NBA fans except Snoop, who miraculously saw it coming.
