There probably isn’t an active athlete who is more synonymous with bad sportsmanship than the Warriors’ Green. But that’s exactly why the Warriors star is on the team. Golden State knows that he’ll do the dirty work that allows the Splash Brothers and other stars to blossom. Green’s list of flagrant fouls is endless and he has a penchant for attacking his opponents’ groins.
Rival fans hate him because they know what he’s going to do. Steven Adams, LeBron James, and Marquese Chriss felt the brunt of Green’s dirty tactics. Sometimes he crosses the line and it costs his team dearly. But when it works it can have a great effect on their fortunes. Everybody wants a player like Green on their roster because of his ruthlessness (via Fox Sports).
