Bell, who’s in his rookie season with the Warriors, told ESPN he believes Mejri targeted him because of his decision to throw down a flashy late-game dunk back in an October contest. But Mejri, who’s played 34 games with Dallas, says the altercation escalated for a different reason. “He called me the N-word and I was not happy about it,” Mejri told Def Pen Hoops. “I told the referee, ‘Hey, he can’t call me that.’ I don’t want to be called that word. I don’t think it’s a big deal, but for real, I don’t know the kid, I don’t know his name, I don’t know his number. The only thing I remember is the dunk he made against us [in October], but he can do whatever he wants. Backboard, behind-the-back, throw it to the fans, he can do whatever he wants. We’re playing basketball.”

When first reached by phone at his home in Dallas, Salah Mejri was unaware of who Jordan Bell was. Bell has been with the Warriors since the team traded for him on draft night last June. “I don’t know him,” Mejri said. “At least he knows my jersey number, but I don’t know him. I don’t know him. I’m not trying to be silly, I’m serious. I don’t know who he is, for real. The only Jordan who plays basketball that I know is Michael Jordan.”

Chris Haynes: Rookie Jordan Bell to ESPN on the two mini altercations last night with Salah Mejri and Devin Harris in Dallas. Asked if he felt targeted from when he threw the ball off the glass and dunked it with the game already decided on Oct. 23.

Myers also addressed McGee’s role going forward with the Warriors. “He was a pro last year. He went through periods were he wasn’t playing. I think he’s been a pro this year, meaning, it’s not always going to swing your way. But one thing I think our players appreicate about Steve [Kerr], and which is something I appreciate working with him, is that he’s very communicative, he’s honest. He’ll go to a player before a game and say ‘Look, this isn’t a good matchup for you.’ You saw Zaza Pachulia being available for Cleveland and Steve started Jordan Bell and didn’t play Zaza and Zaza is starting tonight. So for JaVale, I think the fact that he’s experienced being in and out of the rotation serves him well. And Steve Kerr is not an agenda guy, he’s not a play favorites guy. You can be in the rotation. You can be out of it,” Myers said.
