Warriors forward Draymond Green is arguably the NBA's most polarizing player, but many Wizards fans — and players — might be able to finally find some common ground with the two-time all-star.
On Sunday, the Wizards beat the Celtics 121-102 in Game 4 without the services of Kelly Oubre Jr., who was serving a one-game suspension for launching himself at Celtics center Kelly Olynyk in Game 3.
Green, who was a guest on the Uninterrupted podcast with Bay Area sports columnist Marcus Thompson II, was asked about the incident between Oubre and Olynyk, and the always talkative Green did not hold back.
"He's dirty," Green said, when talking about Olynyk. "Dirty player, man. I don't respect guys like that. I know he's not like the greatest basketball player of all-time so maybe he feels like he's gotta like do that. Just dirty. I don't respect that, man. He's dirty."
Now, to be fair, Green doesn't exactly have a stellar resume when it comes to whether or not a player is "dirty." But given Olynyk does have a history when it comes to playoff controversy, Green may have a point.
With Oubre back in the lineup for Game 5 on Wednesday, it will be interesting to see how both he and Olynyk handle their emotions as both teams look to take a 3-2 series lead.
