Gabrielle Union Don't Be Ashamed to Eat Butt

10/20/2017 2:55 PM PDT

"So, how old were you when you first ate a butt?"

That's a real question Sway asked Gabrielle Union during his radio show in a conversation about sexual reciprocity ... a conversation that has everyone grabbing some Scope. 

Gabby appeared on "Sway in the Morning" and talked openly about sex -- and that's when tossed salads appeared on the menu. 

Dwyane Wade's wife says even though men will deny it, they enjoy a little backdoor love from women ... and they're singing a completely different tune in the bedroom. 

Butt -- it's what's for dinner.

Lonzo Ball needs to back up his dad's trash talk or it's gonna be a looong season ... so says Kenny Smith

The "Inside the NBA" star says LaVar Ball's antics have "put a bullseye" right on Lonzo's back -- and Patrick Beverley ain't gonna be the only one who's gonna take a shot. 

The good news for Lonzo ... Kenny says it's "just one game" and he'll shut up the haters if he bounces back strong. 

He even broke out a Rocky Balboa-ish quote for inspiration ...

Kendall Jenner had the best seats in the house to support her man Blake Griffin on Thursday night -- sitting courtside as BG's Clippers beat up on the Lakers at Staples Center. 

And to prove that supermodels really do eat ... she indulged on a giant caramel apple for all to see! 

Kendall was just one of the many superstars in the arena -- Flea, Gal Gadot, Floyd Mayweather and, of course, Jack Nicholson were all on hand for Lonzo Ball's pro debut. 

Oh, and check out this bonus pic we've unofficially titled, "Belly, Boobs, Billionaire."

Good times ... 

DeMarcus Cousins Selling $5.4 Mil Cali Mansion ... Tennis, Anyone??

10/19/2017 3:35 PM PDT

DeMarcus Cousins is leaving Northern California in the rear view mirror for good ... putting his RIDICULOUS pad on the market ... and asking $5.4 milli for the digs. 

The NBA superstar plopped down $4.7 million for the 6 bed, 8 bath Granite Bay joint back in 2013 -- right after inking a $62 million deal with the Kings. 

The 13,690 square-foot estate is pretty freakin' insane -- featuring a Playboy-mansion-style grotto (R.I.P. Hef), film and workout rooms, a 10-car garage and even an outdoor pizza oven. 

But the best part has to be his swanky lighted tennis court ... 'cause there's no sign of a basketball court on the entire property!

Gotta think DMC's got big (and bougie) plans for his New Orleans crib.

EXCLUSIVE

Master P has a message for Colin Kaepernick ... WHO NEEDS THE NFL ... telling TMZ Sports if the league won't let Kaep ball, he's down to help Colin start up his own shop, and take down the shield.

P knows about sports startups, his Global Mixed Gender Basketball league is off to an incredible start, attracting big name talent like the Gonzalez Twins, Glen "Big Baby" Davis, and Metta World Peace.

When we got him out in L.A. we had to ask P what he thought about Kaep's situation, and P had a very simple answer, if you can't join 'em, beat 'em.

"I'll help him start his own league. I think he should, I mean he's a great football player. I think the NFL should have some competition."

P's point is that the only way Colin can ensure his right to demonstrate any way he wants is to have some ownership, and that's exactly what he wants to do with his upstart league.

Someone get "He Hate Me" on the phone.

Rick Pitino is suing Adidas in federal court ... claiming that his good name has been dragged through the mud as a result of the company's dirty tactics.

Pitino's attorney filed the suit in a Kentucky federal court earlier today ... asking for compensatory and punitive damages -- but also saying this is about more than money. He wants to clear his name.

"It is Coach Pitino's vehicle for proving that he had nothing to do with Adidas' outrageous, wrongful, and illegal conspiracy."

Marcelo Huertas had a rough run with the L.A. Lakers ... and now he's clapping back at his former team and the NBA for how they coddle their superstars.

"In the NBA, players are babies ... everyone is afraid of dealing with the athletes," Huertas told Brazilian hoops blog Bala na Cesta

"That's not a thing in Europe. If you step over the line, you're punished athletically, financially, you're thrown out, suspended, whatever the hell. That doesn't exist in the NBA. I would see things and say, 'There's no way this is possible."'

Marcelo -- a Euroleague veteran -- says his 2 seasons with the Lakers were pretty tough on him emotionally ... claiming he put in a TON of hard work, even mentoring his younger point guard competition, just to ride the pine.

"Everything you can imagine, I would do it. If it had been in Europe I would've played."

FYI, Huertas averaged 15 minutes -- and 4 points a game -- in L.A. He's back playing in Spain now.

As for the Lakers ... got a feeling they'll be OK at the point.
