The Warriors vs. Kings series was a classic basketball showdown that took all seven games to declare a winner.

But after the Warriors secured a dominant 20-point lead in overtime, the reigning NBA champions secured the Game 7 win and advanced to the next round of the 2023 NBA Playoffs.

Following the Warriors' victory, the players and coaches from both teams shook hands with one another. That is, except for Sabonis.

Green clearly noticed and doesn't seem too happy about it.

"Lost a lot of respect for Sabonis," Green said on his podcast, The Draymond Green Show. "You don't shake guy's hands after you lose? I don't respect that."

He added: "I once left the court after we lost Game 7 to the Cleveland Cavaliers and I went to the locker room and sat down and I said this doesn't feel right. I then walked back onto the court and showed everybody love. You lost, deal with it. Pay your respect."

It's no secret that Green and Sabonis were at each other's necks during The Warriors vs. Kings playoff series.

The drama started when Green stomped on Sabonis after the Sacramento player pulled Green's leg.

Green got ejected during the game for this and was suspended for another while Sabonis was simply handed a technical foul.
