The Golden State Warriors have lived and died by Draymond Green.

He’s always been their catalyst, their vocal leader, and that guy does what it takes for the team to get the job done.

However, that might not be what they need from him anymore, and it showed when Stephen Curry was almost in tears after he was ejected early in a win over the Orlando Magic.

With that in mind, former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins stated that the Warriors could be facing some tough decisions in the offseason.

Talking on The Pat McAfee Show, the former big man admitted that he had always advocated for the Warriors to break things up and trade Klay Thompson, and he feels like they’re going to have to carefully assess their roster after this season.

“After this season the Golden State Warriors have some tough decisions to make,” Perkins said.

As currently constructed, the Warriors are not a championship team, not anymore.

They had an incredible run, one of the greatest of all time, but that’s all in the past.

Stephen Curry hasn’t aged like his peers, and even though coach Steve Kerr claims he doesn’t want to play him heavy minutes because of his age, he’s still a superstar and a top-10 player in this league.

GM Mike Dunleavy Jr. will need to do right by his star point guard and find ways to improve the roster around him.

And as tough as it might be for the fans and decision-makers to deal with it, perhaps the only untouchable player besides Curry should be Jonathan Kuminga.
