The championship window for the Golden State Warriors is closed.

At the one-fifth mark of the season or 20 percent in, the Golden State Warriors are, simply put, not a very good team. They've been inconsistent and even when they've been a complete team, they've been average, at best, on both ends of the floor. So much so that it's left many to believe that the team's championship window is beginning to close.

While it's fair to make that argument, I'd suggest that it has already closed. In this article, I'll explain the four signs that are proving the championship window has effectively closed for the Warriors dynasty.

Draymond Green has become more of a headache than a difference-maker

This has been a trend that has been developing over the last couple of years, but the team's championship in 2022 kind of quieted the noise down. However, it's hard to deny, especially after his lackluster start to this season, that Draymond Green is becoming more of a headache than a difference-maker.

Even though his efficiency shooting numbers are not bad, his production is down in other areas. He also hasn't had the overall impact on the team that he's had in past years. Add in the fact that he's going to be 34 years old and just signed a five-year deal, and it's more likely than not that he's already played his best basketball with the Warriors.
