Draymond Green said he believes he's being unfairly targeted for his frequent high kicks.
Green was assessed a flagrant foul for his kick of James Harden in the Golden State Warriors' loss on Thursday.
"I just laugh at it because it's funny how you can tell me how I get hit and how my body is supposed to react," Green said Saturday after the Warriors' shootaround. "I didn't know the people in the league office were that smart when it came to your body movement. I'm not sure if they took kinesiology and all this stuff for their positions to kind of tell you how your body is going to react when you get hit at certain positions.
"Or you go up and you got guys that jump to the ceiling, and I'm sure a lot of these people that make these rules can't touch the rim. Yet they tell you [that] you are way up there in the air and which way your body [is supposed to react]. I don't really understand that. That's like me going in there and telling them, 'Hey, you did something on this paperwork in here wrong.' Like, I don't know what your paperwork looks like. It is what it is. I think they made the rule and make your rule. Like, I don't care."
Green coincidentally brought up Harden.
"If you're going to say it's an unnatural act, no offense to James Harden, but I've never seen nobody up until really James start doing it in my life that shoot a layup like this under your arm," Green said. "That's really not a natural act either. It's not a natural basketball play either.
"So, if you're going to make a rule, make a rule. But if you're going to take unnatural acts out the game, then let's lock in on all these unnatural acts and take them out the game if that's what we're going to do. I don't know. Let them keep telling people how their body reacts, I guess. They need to go take a few more kinesiology classes though. Maybe they can take a tape in class, functional movement classes and let me know how the body works because clearly mine doesn't work the right way."
