“This dude be out there trying to hurt people man."
Draymond Green's history of dirty plays, specifically kicking opposing players in the balls during the NBA Playoffs, has been well-documented over the last two seasons but he's not the only player who has been accused of using dirty tactics to gain an advantage.
Looking at you, Kelly Olynyk.
On the most recent episode of Draymond's "Dray Day" podcast, he called out the Celtics' forward for being "dirty" and brought up the 2015 incident where Olynyk dislocated Kevin Love's shoulder in the playoffs.
“Kelly Olynyk is a dirty player, man,” Draymond said.
"He’s dirty. Dirty player, man. I don’t respect guys like that. I mean, I know he’s not like the greatest basketball player of all time, so maybe you feel like you got to like do that, but you don’t like – just dirty. Like I don’t respect that man, he dirty.”
“It’s a big difference between knowing all the trick because all the tricks ain’t doing stuff to hurt people,” Green said. “Like come on, he really yanked this [Love’s] shoulder out of place. I don’t roll with that man, dude dirty.
“This dude be out there trying to hurt people man, I don’t rock with bruh like that.”
During Boston's Game 3 loss to the Wizards, Olynyk set a hard screen on Kelly Oubre who reacted by shoving Olynyk to the ground, resulting in his ejection and one-game suspension.
Draymond took exception to Oubre's suspension as well.
"And, Kelly Olynyk is a dirty player. You do little stuff dirty and you want to take a charge or something. C’mon, man. Oubre (didn’t) hit him that hard and (he) shouldn’t have been suspended. You already kicked him out of the game. So essentially, he’s getting a game-and-a-half suspension for that? Like KD said last night, then they wonder why they call the league soft? C’mon, man. It’s playoff basketball and things are going to get like that. Did he really do something to harm somebody? Like, c’mon man. That’s ridiculous. Like, why did he get suspended?"
