Draymond Green put himself in the middle of a growing rivalry between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors last season.

Green admits there is a mutual distaste between the two sides.

“It is what it is now,” Green said. “They hate me. I dislike them.”

Green was tossed from a February game against the Rockets, putting a hard foul on Patrick Beverley to prevent Houston from setting a single-game three-pointer record, and jawing and the ejection ensued.
