The Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green told The Athletic on Saturday that ongoing friction between the NBA’s officials and players is “ruining the game.”

Green, who picked up his 11th technical foul of the season in the Warriors’ 121-105 victory over the LA Clippers on Saturday, told the website that officials are making things personal and the problem is one of the No. 1 issues that needs to be solved by the league.

“It’s bad,” Green told the website. “It’s horrible. It’s really bad. I don’t know why it is. But I think it’s ridiculous. It’s ruining the game. … It should be one of, if not the main priority, to be solved. It definitely should.”

The fed-up Green even proposed that the NBA should start fresh at the officiating position.

“They can get a new crop [of officials], a whole new crop,” Green told the website. “Too many personal things going on. Too much me against you. It just don’t work that way.”
