Draymond Green has a history of kicking opposing players below the belt, a track record that has left many wondering whether the Golden State Warriors do-everything power forward is a borderline dirty player.

Oubre didn't take it too kindly and charged at Olynyk leading him to get ejected from the game, and ultimately suspended for his teams next game.

Draymond Green thinks that Kelly Olynyk is a dirty player, saying so on the UNINTERRUPTED podcast with The Mercury News' Marcus Thompson.

"That man took a charge on a push", Green went on. Like, come on bro.

According to the report Green said, "Kelly Olynyk is a dirty player, man, Olynyk caught [Oubre] in the face and the neck with a couple of elbows".

"I mean, I don't think I'm a dirty player; my teammates don't think I'm a dirty player", he said.

The Warriors' star says he doesn't respect the Celtics' big man.

Green, who in December was named the second-dirtiest player in National Basketball Association history by Fox Sports (behind only longtime San Antonio forward Bruce Bowen), detailed the difference between someone who tries to bend the rules to his advantage and someone who tries to injure others. "Knowing all the tricks ain't doing stuff to hurt people", Green said on his podcast.

Golden State Warriors' Andre Iguodala and Boston Celtics' Kelly Olynyk battle for rebound position in 2nd quarter during National Basketball Association game at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on Wednesday, March 8, 2017.

He continued to discuss the Oubre play before coming back to Olynyk.

Despite Oubre's absence in Game 4 Sunday, the Wizards evened the series with a 121-102 victory over Boston. Y'all already kicked him out of the game, so essentially he's getting a game and a half suspension for that? But you ain't doing nothing to hurt nobody. Although Olynyk isn't the same caliber of player that Green is stat wise, they both share some similarities in regards to their hardcore play styles. "This dude [Olynyk] be out there trying to hurt people".
