Draymond Green's flailing legs have been a topic of conversation ever since he kicked Steven Adams in the nether regions during the Western Conference Finals last season.

The All-Star Golden State Warriors star was under the microscope again recently after he kicked James Harden in the head as he came down from a shot during the Houston Rockets' double-overtime win at the Oracle Arena.

Green was handed a technical foul by official and a number of people have been quick to voice their opinions on the Michigan State alum on social media.

But Warriors head coach Steve Kerr believes his forward is given a bad rep due to the fact Golden State are always the 'focus'. He went on to say that a number of other players in the league are guilty of kicking out.

"It happens all the time," Kerr told Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News of Green's kicking move. "(Dennis) Schroder did it to us the other night. Tried to draw a foul and I think he kicked Draymond, ironically enough. It's a difficult play for the refs to see."

"They've decided how they're going to call it. But there's no question that Draymond is going to be the focus of that role because we're always the focus, we're playing on national TV, it was a huge story line in the playoffs last year."
