The Golden State Warriors have had three faces carry their franchise over the past decade.
All three have played vital roles in four championships for the team over the past eight seasons.
But, will all three of them stay Warriors for life?
Draymond Green was asked that same question, and he gave off the idea that he sees
him playing somewhere else in the future.
“Quite frankly, the writing’s on the wall."
Draymond Green on the possibility of not being a Warrior 👀

This is not what Warriors fans want to hear from one of their franchise’s most important players.
Green has played a vital role in the Warriors’ success.
His leaving would give off a sour taste to the whole fanbase.
Golden State has a large payroll, and maybe Green is unsure how he fits into it.
The Warriors have plenty of young players that they will need to pay at some point.
But, moving on from Green for salary cap reasons would be a massive mistake.
Green is a smart player and businessman, he could use this interview as leverage against the organization for a better deal.
Not one fan is going to want to see Green playing in a different uniform.
Despite, his inability to be a scorer, the 32-year-old provides value in many other forms.
He is their best defensive player, he is a primary ball handler and an elite distributor.
Green does all the unselfish things that are necessary on any championship team.
It would be a surprise if the Warriors let Green leave, especially because Curry and Thompson would most likely not allow it.
Golden State’s championship window is still open, and the front office should do what’s necessary to keep it open as long as possible.
