Draymond Green didn't hold back words when he was asked if he regretted his actions toward Rudy Gobert.

It's been everything but an ideal start for the Golden State Warriors. At 8-9, this is a team that might need to answer some tough questions if they continue to float around mediocrity in the Western Conference.

Heading into this season, the hope was that they could extend their championsip window. That was a bit part in the thinking process of re-signing Draymond Green. Essentially, the Warriors didn't beleive this was the end of their championship core. However, the early returns on the season aren't all that encouraging.

To add injury to insult, it didn't help matters that Draymond got into a physical altercation with Rudy Gobert that cost him to miss a few games.

After his altercation with Gobert, Draymond was suspended for five games. Now that the suspension is officially over, Draymond is eligible to return to action for the Warriors. The expectation is that Draymond will return to action on the road against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.

However, when recently asked if he had any regrets about what happened between him and Gobert, Draymond didn't hold back any words. He was not even apologetic.

""I don't live my life with regrets," Green said after practice, the first time he has spoken to reporters since his suspension. "I'll come to a teammate's defense any time that I'm in a position to come to a teammate's defense. ... What matters to me is how the people that I care about feel, first and foremost. How are the people that I care about affected? How are the people I care about, what do they have to deal with? That's it for me.""

It's clear that there's some bad blood between Gobert and Draymond. However, it is somewhat shocking that there wasn't even a little regret on behalf of Draymond. If nothing else, his actions hurt his image and the team.

During his absence, the Warriors were 2-3. His suspension did nothing to help the Warriors snap out of their recent funk. After starting the season with a 6-2 record, the Warriors have lost seven of their last nine games.

There should be some legitimate concerns about the Warriors right now. They're an average team on both ends of the floor and there is little hope of them turning things around. Unless something drastically changes, the Warriors are likely to be a one-and-done playoff team, if that.

This is around the time that Draymond's antics begin to wear thin. Though, this is something the Warriors signed up for when they re-signed Draymond. At this point, you can't help but wonder if Golden State made a very big mistake during the offseason.
