Back on Nov. 12, on the night of an overtime loss to the Clippers, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green had a heated exchange of words on the floor and in the locker room.

The drama from this argument put a strain on morale and has been a major talking part of the Warriors’ season so far. 

David West spoke to Sam Amick of The Athletic on the situation:

“I’m gonna be honest, the only moment (where) I said, ‘Man, I wish I was there,’ was at that Clippers game. When Draymond turned the ball over at the end — and he was going to create the play; he was going to make the play, it just sometimes doesn’t happen — at that moment, when I saw the way he was walking, and I saw KD react, and it was like ‘Oh, I know if I was there that s---  wouldn’t have happened.’ That’s the only moment where I felt like, ‘Man I could’ve stopped it.’”

Who else misses David West?
