There's no love lost between the Warriors and the Grizzlies after an epic playoff series last season, which the Warriors won in six games.

Grizzlies players Ja Morand and Jaren Jackson Jr have had exchanges with some Warriors players on social media, fuelling an already heated rivalry. Their last meeting in january saw the Warriors win.

Morant recently said that no team scares him in the Western Conference, a remark Warriors fans did not forget.

Meanwhile, Brooks’ reputation as an NBA villain was solidified when he appeared to strike Cleveland Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell in the groin area.

Brooks attacks Green and Warriors

In a new interview with ESPN, Brooks shared his distaste for Green and the Warriors.

"I don't like Draymond at all," he says. "I just don't like Golden State. I don't like anything to do with them. Draymond talks a lot. Gets away with a lot, too. His game is cool -- with Golden State -- but if you put him anywhere else, you're not going to know who Draymond is. He plays with heart, plays hard, knows the ins and outs of their defense. I guess that's why they like him over there."

Brooks’ animosity toward the defending champions began in last year’s playoff series when he was suspended after committing a controversial flagrant 2 foul Gary Payton II, which injured the guard. Brooks was later suspended for Game 3, per Complex.

Morant accuses NBA of 'hating'

Sports Brief earlier reported on Morant accusing the NBA of hating on the Grizzlies after Brooks was ejected for hitting Cleveland Cavaliers' Mitchell in the groin area.

The All-Star said they don't have any problem with the shooting guard, any player or any NBA team, and don't understand why the NBA is targeting them.

"Anything when it comes to negative about the Grizzlies, we normally, you know, get the punishment. It ain't the same. They [the NBA] hate us. We don't got no history with nobody. We don't beef with nobody."
