Kelly Olynyk does not have the best reputation in the NBA. He was called dirty for what happened with him and Kevin Love in 2015, which led to Love’s dislocated shoulder. Also, he had an incident with Robin Lopez during these playoffs, and we saw what happened with Olynyk and Kelly Oubre Jr. Warriors’ Draymond Green gave his thoughts about Olynyk on his podcast Dray Day on Uninterrupted:
He’s dirty, a dirty player. I don’t respect guys like that. I know he’s not the greatest basketball player of all time, so maybe he feel like he got to do that, but you don’t have to do that. Just dirty. I don’t respect that, man. He’s dirty.

Celtics’ coach Brad Stevens disagrees:
