Golden State Warriors F Draymond Green has a kicking problem. Mainly, he can't stop himself from flailing his legs whenever he goes to the ground.

That tendency has gotten him in trouble before, including during last year's playoffs, when he drew scrutiny for kicking Oklahoma City's Steven Adams and Cleveland's Kyrie Irving in back-to-back series.

Green was at it again last week, this time with a new victim -- Phoenix Suns rookie Marquese Chriss.

Chriss wasn't happy with the incident, calling out Green in an article on

“It’s kind of funny that it happens so much,” Chriss said of Green’s kicks, like Thursday’s boot to James Harden’s head. “I was frustrated at the time but just move on from it. It happens. It’s easy to avoid. In hindsight, you don’t have to kick your leg up in the air as frequently as it’s happening. It’s just something that needs to be addressed.”

Green is seemingly the only player in the NBA who can't control his legs when he falls and Chriss has had enough.

Chriss was kicked in the hand by Green, causing his pinkie finger to swell up:

Chriss played 17 minutes against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night, so he didn't miss any time because of Green's kick, but he still clearly feels the NBA isn't doing enough.

What do you think? Should Green be suspended yet again for his actions?
