EXCLUSIVE

Brian Scalabrine says there's absolutely NO WAY in hell the Celtics can beat the Cavs and advance to the NBA Finals ... that is, unless there's a zombie apocalypse!!

The NBA champ and current Cs analyst says even though Boston took Game 3 on the road, and only trails the series 2-1, they got no shot at dethroning King James and Co. with Isaiah Thomas sidelined with an injury.

"There's not one sliver of hope that they can actually pull this series off," ... UNLESS "we have a zombie apocalypse and LeBron gets bitten in the neck."

The White Mamba has spoken.

Luke Walton LaVar Ball Doesn't Scare Me My Dad's A Character Too!

5/22/2017 7:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lakers coach Luke Walton ain't scared of LaVar Ball ... telling TMZ Sports the big personality on Lonzo's dad isn't an issue 'cause Walton's already dealt with a celebrity papa ... his own dad, Bill.

We got Luke at the Tour de Pier charity event in Manhattan Beach and talked to him about the most discussed family in basketball (maybe ever) ... and whether anything LaVar does turns Luke off as a coach.

The Big Baller had a hell of a week last week, getting into a televised sparring session with a TV host, and making remarks about Kyrie Irving's upbringing that some thought crossed a major line.

None of it seems to bother Walton ... he GUSHED about Lonzo when we brought him up, saying whatever team gets him is going to get better, and reminding us his own dad was a "big personality."

That #2 pick is starting to look like a sure thing.

Ben Simmons may be a quiet guy ... but his SISTER is firing shots at Lonzo and LaVar Ball

Olivia Simmons is clearly fed up with the media circus surrounding the Big Baller Brand family ... and called upon her Philadelphia 76ers star brother to personally shut them up.

"I hope my brother dunks on Lonzo Ball so hard next year that his daddy runs on the court to help him up."

Yikes.

Guess this means Ben won't be wearing the ZO2s next season?

Celtics Co-Owner Of Course, We're Considering Lonzo ... With #1 Pick

5/17/2017 6:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Could Lonzo Ball be a Boston Celtic?? 

It's possible ... because Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck tells TMZ Sports the team is definitely considering drafting the former UCLA stud with the #1 overall pick. 

Grousbeck was leaving the NBA Draft lottery in NYC Thursday night when he told us he's fired up about securing the top spot -- "It seems like Celtic pride is going crazy right now!" 

Wyc says the team hasn't made its mind up on who will be #1 -- but says they're looking about the 6 "really good guys" in the draft ... and bad news, LaVar -- that list includes Lonzo. 

Of couse, LaVar has made it crystal clear he wants his son in the Purple and Gold ... but Wyc says Boston ain't exactly a bad place to end up either!

"We're a place that people would wanna come and play," Grousbeck says ... "We're doing well and room for improvement."

Bonus -- Wyc says he'll have a very special VIP in the owner's box with him Wednesday night ... a huge Boston fan who's pretty tight with Conor McGregor.

Cris Carter LeBron Will NEVER Overtake Jordan Brand It's a Woman Thing ...

5/16/2017 8:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James will always be #2 behind Michael Jordan when it comes to business ... so says Cris Carter, who says Jordan Brand has a secret weapon to stay ahead of Bron -- women. 

Cris was out in NYC with Nick Wright, the co-host of his new FS1 morning show, "First Things First" -- when we asked if LeBron's brand will ever overtake Jordan as the #1 name in athletic wear. 

The NFL Hall of Famer says MJ was VERY smart about growing his business -- appealing to women -- and it paid off huge. He thinks MJ has too big of a lead for LeBron to catch up.

Even Wright -- captain of the LeBron James fan club -- admits Carter has a solid point ... but couldn't leave without taking one last dig at the original #23.

Kobe Bryant Supports Jordan Edwards' Family Sends Jersey to Brother of Teen Killed By Cop

5/16/2017 7:50 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kobe Bryant is stepping up big for the family of Jordan Edwards -- the unarmed 15-year-old shot and killed by a Dallas cop last month -- sending a special birthday gift to Jordan's brother. 

Mamba was clearly moved after hearing Kevon Edwards was in the car with Jordan when an officer opened fire as the brothers were leaving a party in Balch Springs, TX on April 29.

Officer Roy Oliver (who's been fired) has been charged with murder in the shooting -- and the case has once again put the spotlight on fatal police shootings involving white officers and black men. 

Kobe's obviously been following the story, because he knew Kevon just celebrated his 17th birthday and sent over some sweet gear to help him celebrate -- including a signed jersey and two pairs of Mamba's signature shoe.

BTW -- The message on the jersey read "To Kevon, Do epic things! God bless. Much love!"

Breaking News

A Washington Wizards fan socked a Boston Celtics fan in the face at the TD Garden during Game 7 -- dropping the dude into the seats ... while nearby fans cheered them on. 

Unclear what started the fight, but the man in the John Wall jersey reached back and clocked the dude -- while the victim was still clutching his cell phone.

Another Celtics fan tried to jump in and help out his fallen comrade ... but the damage was already done.

We spoke with cops who say no one was arrested at TD Garden on Monday. 

Meantime, we got a photo of the aftermath ... it was bloody. 

Ex-Knicks Coach Defends Carmelo Anthony 'He Was Great For Me'

5/16/2017 5:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Carmelo Anthony is getting some heavy duty backup in his nasty feud with Phil Jackson ... an ex-Knicks head coach who says he LOVED coaching 'Melo and says he's been "great" for the franchise.

Phil's been criticizing Anthony since he was hired as the Knicks President -- and made it clear he wants to trade Melo out of NYC as soon as possible.

We got former Knicks coach Mike Woodson -- who was fired by Phil back in '14 -- and asked what he thought of the Melo/Jackson feud ... and Mike took a side.

"I love Carmelo Anthony, that's all I'm gonna say," Woodson told us ... adding, "He was great for me."

Seems clear Woodson -- now an assistant with the Clippers -- is riding with his 'Melo, and why not? The two men were 109-79 together and made the playoffs twice, something the Knicks haven't done since.

And when we say "since" ... we mean since Phil Jackson was hired.

Just sayin' ...

EXCLUSIVE

Shareef O'Neal says he's not only ready to take on LeBron James in a 1-on-1 match -- he's VERY confident he could get buckets on the King and says Bron should call him to set it up!! 

It was just a few years ago when Reef was 15 that he told us his dream was to play against Bron -- and now that he's closer to making that happen, we asked how he thinks he'd do. 

FYI, Shareef is 17 -- one of the best high school players in America -- and just committed to play college ball at the University of Arizona after his senior year. 

The good news ... Shareef's clearly got some of Shaq's confidence -- telling us he would easily rack up some points on the NBA legend. 

But the best part of the video is the end when Shareef delivers a message to Bron -- "You know how to contact me. I'm ready for a game."

The moment made international headlines -- when Ware gruesomely snapped his right leg through the skin while Louisville was playing Duke in the Elite 8 ... a game watched by millions.
