011917_westbrook_primaryRussell Westbrook was PISSED at the Golden State Warriors after Wednesday night's game -- vowing revenge on Zaza and apparently telling teammates to stay away from "bitch ass" Kevin Durant.

The game wasn't exactly the friendliest -- with Zaza Pachulia knocking Westbrook to the ground at one point and standing over him in a menacing way.

After the game, Russell went off to reporters saying, "I'm gonna get his ass back. Straight up."

He added, "I don't know when it's gonna be. But I don't play that game."

There's more ... now video has surfaced from the moments the game ended appearing to show Russell telling teammates to not talk to a certain "bitch ass."

According to multiple reports, the "bitch ass" in question is KD, though it's impossible to tell from the clip alone.

Interesting note ... Westbrook says he and Durant are NOT on speaking terms.

Steph Curry paid tribute to his favorite president Monday night ... rockin' a special pair of Obama-themed Curry 3 sneakers to play the Cavs ... complete with #44's signature on the bottom! 

Steph and Barack have been tight for years -- and the Golden State Warriors star felt MLK Day was the perfect occasion to honor the first African-American POTUS. 

The shoes are dope -- red, white and blue in color with the presidential seal and #44 on the tongue ... along with the words, "Back2Back."

It seems to be a reference to the 2 terms B.O. served as Commander-In-Chief. 

Curry also tweeted about the kicks, "Honoring our President Barack Obama today on court! He embodies the inspiration, faith & hope Dr. King stood for! We R Forever Grateful! #44."

FYI, Curry dropped 20 in the Warriors 126-91 domination of LeBron James and the Cavs.

Klay Thompson must be sooooo mad right now ... 'cause he's like the only Warrior that HASN'T hit the stage with Drake in Oakland. KD was Tuesday ... and Wednesday night? STEPH & DRAYMOND.

Drake is in Tha Town for the Summer Sixteen tour with Future and continued his trend of bringing local sports stars onstage to drive the crowd wild.

He did it in NY with Derrick Rose, in Ohio it was LeBron, and now he's attempting to get the whole Warriors roster up on the stage in NorCal ... by splitting the stars up over two nights.

Check out the clip -- crowd goes wild, of course ... good thing Kyrie Irving wasn't there to spoil it again.

EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Durant's giant tattoo shout-out to Rick James isn't sitting well ... with Rick James' son.

We got rapper/singer Taz James outside the Mondrian Hotel, and while he respects KD's homage ... Taz points out KD never made a call. As he put it, "You gotta get permission big boy!"

Seems like he's mostly joking, but the not-so-funny part is Taz keeps referring to his friend, "Brandon" ... aka Lil B... and his curse.

Exclusive Details

0722-draymond-green-gettyDraymond Green will be off the hook in his bar fight case ... if he can keep his nose clean for a year ... because the NBA star just struck a plea deal with prosecutors. 

Green was arrested for assault on July 10th after allegedly striking a college football player in the face outside of a Michigan bar. He was facing more than 90 days in jail if convicted. 

But now, Green has reportedly cut a deal ... in which he agreed to pay a $500 fine and $60 in jail restitution AND he must stay out of trouble for a year. He also isn't allowed to contact the victim

If he does all of those things ... the charge will be reduced to a civil infraction ... so he won't have a misdemeanor on his record. 

We spoke with Asst. City Attorney David Meyers who tells us Draymond got NO special treatment. 

"The plea agreement reached with Mr. Green is in accordance with our normal plea bargain procedures and guidelines for a case with similar circumstances, evidence and witness statements. We simply treated Mr. Green no differently than any other defendant that we prosecute."
