Draymond Green

In just six seasons, Green has shown not only to be one of the biggest villains in Thunder history, but NBA history as well. His connection with the Thunder is obvious, having repeatedly kicked Steven Adams below the belt.

But that’s not the only time Green has gotten overly physical with a Thunder player. Here he is with another hard foul on Westbrook from a game this past season.

In terms of actual play, Green was the unsung hero in the Warriors game six win over OKC. He along with Klay Thompson lead the team in plus/minus with a +16. He put up his typical stat-line of 12 points, 12 rebounds six assists, three steals and a block. However, his biggest impact was his 98.0 defensive rating, by far the best of any player who played major minutes.

If you need another reason to hate Green, it is certainly understandable to think that if he didn’t get suspended for game five of the 2016 finals, the Warriors would have won the series. If the Warriors win that title, Kevin Durant doesn’t join the Warriors. Oh and that’s right, Green was one of the leading recruiters to get Durant to join the Warriors. Following the game seven choke, Green was reportedly crying to General Manager Bob Meyers in his car, begging him to sign Kevin Durant.  Right after he got off the phone with Meyers, Green called Durant.

Combine Draymond’s dirty, pesky play, along with his cockiness, constant complaining to the refs, and role in recruiting Durant, and you have one of the most annoying villains in OKC history.
