Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green earned his Kia Defensive Player of the Year honor last season both for his defensive stats and his take-on-all-comers attitude to defense.

But Green rose up before Smith could get to the rim and fouled him -- and then delivered some choice words to the rookie.
