Draymond Green has hit out at Sacramento Kings star Domantas Sabonis after the latter left the court without shaking hands with the Golden State Warriors players following his team’s loss in Game 7.

Lost a lot of respect for Sabonis. You don’t want to shake guys’ hands after you lose; I don’t respect that,” said Green, who stomped on Sabonis’ chest in Game 2 and got suspended.

The four-time NBA champion remembered when he did something similar after a Cleveland Cavaliers game.

I once left the court when we lost in Game 7 against Cleveland Cavaliers. And I went to my locker room, sat down, and said, ‘This doesn’t feel right.’ I walked back to the court, and I showed everybody love. You lost; deal with it. Pay your respect. That was a whack to me. I don’t respect that. That’s whack.

On the other hand, he praised Sacramento.

Sacramento Kings organization, Sacramento Kings fanbase, De’Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, Mike Brown, and company, I gained a lot of respect,” Green added.
