Draymond Green is not a guy who will get you 20 points every night, but you can be sure he will make his presence known in other ways. He plays the game by famously trying to get in the heads of his opponents, whether by trash talk or stifling defense, or both.
Often times, however, Draymond goes to other lengths to help ensure his team gets the victory: pain. He has almost no shame when it comes to intentionally hurting a player on the court. So much so, in fact, that it can be compiled into a lengthy list.
If you have any doubt about it, just scroll down. Thanks to Reddit user u/necessaryhereditary, we now have a history of Draymond’s dirty plays. Here is the list and, well, the record speaks for itself.
The Christmas Day Elbow
Hitting Mike Conley’s Broken Face
The Groin Kick (Part I and II)
Yanking Adams To The Floor
Dante Exum’s Throat
Kick To Marquesse Chriss
Dropkicking James Harden
Flipping Marcus Smart Into The Air
Poking LeBron’s Eye
The Harden Eye Poke
The Harden Eye Poke Part II
Elbow To Chris Paul
Holy Moly. Draymond threw an elbow at CP3’s head. The Warriors are so lucky this did not connect. pic.twitter.com/pibrv3y5oY

Kick On Kyrie Irving
Kick At Blake Griffin
Tackling Michael Beasley
All things considered, this is very concerning. It makes you wonder how many other plays like this have gone under the radar. Either way, it is a ridiculous tactic and one that Draymond should seriously consider dropping.
