"Basketball Wives" star Draya Michele says ex-cast member Laura Govan only ranted against the VH1 show out of spite ... 'cause she's still pissed about being kicked off.
Draya was scramming from a sushi spot in West Hollywood last night ... and dissed Laura hard for telling us the show's creator Shaunie O'Neal ruined BB wives by keying in on "hos" who aren't even married to basketball players.
Govan never mentioned Draya by name -- but it was pretty clear she was throwing shade at Michele and co-star Sunday Carter.
