Golden State Warriors guard Draymond Green says that Boston Celtics big man Kelly Olynyk is “a dirty player,” in his most recent appearance on the Dray Day podcast.
Olynyk was involved in an altercation with Kelly Oubre in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. Oubre was suspended for Game 4 of the series.
“Kelly Olynyk is a dirty player, man,” Green 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.”

Green went on to add that there is a difference between what Olynyk is doing and veteran moves.
“It's a big difference between knowing all the tricks because knowing all the tricks ain't doing stuff to hurt people,” Green said. “Like come on, he really yanked this dude's shoulder out of place. I don't roll with that man, dude dirty.”
