LeBron James Hugged It Out with Tyronn Lue ... No Hard Feelings?

7/16/2018 5:45 AM PDT
Breaking News

Nice moment between LeBron and his former Cleveland Cavs coach, Tyronn Lue, at the NBA Summer League in Vegas ... where the two embraced and bro'd out. 

It appears to be the first time they've seen each other since LeBron bolted The Land and signed a new $154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Our friends Bryan Salmond and Sharp and Shapiro from "The Vegas Take" radio show were next to the two at the Thomas & Mack Center as the Cavs took on the Raptors ... and watched Bron and Ty chat it up.

LeBron -- wearing his L.A. Lakers shorts -- got a standing ovation from the crowd.

People are trying to decipher what they were saying to each other ... peep the video and see if you can figure it out.

LeBron James Double Dating In Malibu ... With Khloe & Tristan!

7/10/2018 6:06 AM PDT
Breaking News

Hours after officially signing his L.A. Lakers contract, LeBron James and his wife celebrated in Malibu ... with his OLD Cleveland Cavs teammate Tristan Thompson (and Khloe Kardashian!). 

The foursome -- along with a ton of security and others -- hit up Nobu in Malibu ... one of the most expensive sushi joints in town. 

Not like price matters (LeBron just signed a $154 million contract, Tristan is in an $82 mil contract and Khloe is rich as hell too). 

So, why is Bron out with the old teammate instead of bonding with his new Lakers squad? Could be because the Lake Show is in Vegas at the moment competing in the NBA Summer League.

Then again ... it's not like LeBron couldn't have flown out (or flown them in) for a first official dinner together. 

... Or maybe he just really likes Tristan and Khloe?!

On that note, TT and KK were ALL OVER each other in the car -- kissing and hugging up ... and posting it on social media for everyone to see.

LeBron James Banner Coming Down In Cleveland

7/3/2018 5:58 AM PDT
Breaking News

It's over ... again. 

The famous LeBron James banner in downtown Cleveland is officially coming down -- after the NBA superstar decided to leave the city and sign with the Lakers.

The banner -- a 10-story-tall billboard -- has become an icon in Cleveland, showing James doing his famous chalk throw before a game.

The removal ain't gonna be easy -- a Nike spokesperson said it could take a couple of days.

So, what's gonna happen to the banner? Sherwin-Williams -- which owns the building -- says it's evaluating the situation.

As we previously reported, the Cleveland Cavs official online team shop has already scrubbed LeBron from the front page -- and they're slashing prices on all #23 jerseys.

Hey, it was a good run ... mostly.

Cleveland Cavs Scrubbing LeBron from Team Shop ... Slashing Jersey Prices

Well, that was quick. 

LeBron James is no longer on the front page of the Cleveland Cavaliers online team shop -- and they're already slashing prices on his jerseys. 

Don't worry, the new star getting the front-page treatment is Cavs rookie Collin Sexton -- you can buy his jersey for $110 (Kevin Love and J.R. Smith are also still on the front page). 

But, now that LeBron's heading West ... the NBA's #2 selling jersey (behind Steph Curry) has been discounted from $110 to $66! 

Gotta think people in Cleveland are still gonna buy LeBron jerseys though, right? Especially since the Cavs will 100% retire #23 at some point down the line. 

Meanwhile, on the Lakers team store -- they're selling LeBron front and center! 

Interested in some Bron purple and gold swag? An authentic #23 Lakers jersey will cost you $220! 

If that's too rich for your blood, you can still find old-school Cedric Ceballos jerseys (#23) for WAYYYY cheaper!

Good luck! 

LeBron James Risks It All ... JUMPS OFF A CLIFF!

6/29/2018 7:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's something no Laker fans (or even Cleveland fans) wanna see -- LeBron James throwing himself off a cliff!!!

But, yeah, it happened ... 

LeBron and his superstar kid, Bronny, scaled a cliff in Anguilla on Thursday and essentially dared each other to jump ... which is insane considering the whole risk/reward thing. 

LBJ Jr. showed pops how it's done -- jumping without hesitation -- but, when it came time for Daddy to go, he froze up like J.R. Smith in Game 1

Don't worry, Bron eventually took the leap ... after trying to hype himself up while standing on the ledge. 

"It's all about America goddammit," LeBron yelled ... "LET'S GO! LET'S GO! LET'S GO!"

One final war cry -- "BLACK EXCELLENCE!!!"

And then, he jumped. 

Bron later commented, "Excuse my language."

At least he didn't hurt himself ... 

Suns Player Jared Dudley Phoenix Has No Chance At LeBron ... It's 'Cleveland Or L.A.'

6/28/2018 9:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Devin Booker ... DeAndre Ayton ... Josh Jackson ... Elfrid Payton -- that sounds like a team LeBron could get down with, right?!?!

"Zero percent chance," Suns vet Jared Dudley says ... "Bron's not coming to Phoenix."

Well, OK then ... where is he going??

"Cleveland or L.A."

We got Jared on Rodeo Dr. earlier this week ... and despite the Suns loading up on young talent the last year or two -- Jared says there's no way in hell LBJ comes to the desert.

"Zero percent chance. He's not coming to Phoenix."

Dudley says it's OK, though ... in fact, he guaranteed Phoenix will be back in the playoffs in no time.

But ... ya gotta admit -- sure woulda been easier with the game's best player.

LeBron James My Anguilla Beach House Costs $75k a Week!!

6/27/2018 4:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

While LeBron James decides where he's playing next season, he's been balling out in his own private mansion in Anguilla ... at a place that runs $75 GRAND a week!!  

TMZ Sports has learned ... the Cavs superstar (for now, at least) is living it up at the Anguilla Beach House at Meads Bay ... which is essentially a villa on steroids.

Not only is it a dope pad with 8 master bedrooms, it comes with a TON of bells and whistles ... like a full-time chef, butler, 44-ft infinity pool,home theater, a full food and beverage staff, and direct access to the beach.

It seems like the perfect place for LBJ to get some R&R before the Decision 3.0 ... hell, he might say screw the NBA and just stay here for the rest of his life.

By the way, he's not the first superstar to stay at the pad -- Justin Bieber stayed there a few years ago. 

Chris Paul James Harden Deserved MVP ... Needs a 'Ship, Tho

6/26/2018 5:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Paul is going to bat for his teammate -- saying James Harden deserved to win MVP over LeBron James ... but now, he needs to add an NBA title to his resume. 

"He's gonna get that too," CP3 told TMZ Sports on the way out of Catch ... "but he deserved the MVP."

There's an argument James got screwed at the NBA Award ceremony Monday night -- since he played in more games than Harden, scored more points than Harden, got more rebounds, more assists and took his team further with less talent around him. 

But, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni is also siding with Paul -- saying Harden was "without a doubt" the best player in the league and "has been ready to get [MVP] for the last 3 years."

Congrats!

Khloe Kardashian Huge Rock on My Hand is Bright Spot Of Boring Date with Tristan

6/25/2018 9:45 AM PDT

Khloe Kardashian's flashing a massive rock on her left ring finger which might have ya thinking she's engaged to Tristan Thompson ... but don't go buying a gift yet.

Khloe and Tristan had dinner Sunday night at BOA Steakhouse on the Sunset Strip ... and from the look of things, it wasn't the most exciting date night. Khloe seemed to be giving Tristan serious side-eye while he looks at something other than her -- maybe his phone or the menu.

But the bling on her hand was a definite bright spot. Khloe's dressed up that finger before, so we're not jumping the gun on engagement news.

Yes, their relationship's been a roller coaster since the whole cheating and embarrassing her thing -- and yes ... they've put it behind them. Still, a marriage proposal right now would be pretty shocking.

J.R. Smith Game 1 Meltdown Jersey Sells For $23,500!!

6/22/2018 6:32 AM PDT
Breaking News

How much dough would you cough up to own a piece of the biggest boneheaded play of 2018??

For one fan, the magic number is a whoppin' $23,548!! ... 'cause that's what J.R. Smith's NBA Finals Game 1 jersey sold for Thursday night ... TMZ Sports has learned.

ICYMI -- the bidding started at $620 ... but things started heating up on the final day of bidding, with the number reaching around $11k ... then DOUBLING before the auction closed.

To put things in perspective, LeBron James' Game 1 threads -- which he wore during his historic 51-point performance -- fetched $100,322 ... but that was probably bought for different reasons.

No word on the identity of the person who snatched up the J.R. jersey -- but we're guessing only a Warriors fan would want this memento.

J.R. Smith Brainfart Cavs Jersey Auction ... Over $11,000!!!

6/21/2018 9:13 AM PDT
Breaking News

The war for J.R. Smith's most infamous jersey is raging -- with bidding on his NBA Finals brainfart uniform already passing the $11,000 mark!!!

The NBA is auctioning off the jersey from Game 1 of the NBA Finals -- the game where Smith grabbed a clutch rebound with the score tied at the end of the 4th quarter and, for some reason ... RAN OUT THE CLOCK! 

The bidding started at $620 ... but things escalated quickly and, after 110 bids, the number has already reached $11,120. 

Just like in Game 1, the clock is winding down ... bidding ends at 6:50 PM PT Thursday. 

FYI ... LeBron's Game 1 jersey -- the one he scored 51 points in and STILL lost -- is up for sale too, for around $100k.

So ... for way less than a quarter of a million -- you can act out the infamous play in authentic attire at your local Y.

Talk about a low-key wedding ...

Cleveland Cavs player Larry Nance Jr. got married at an Ohio courthouse Tuesday and the dress code was as casual as it gets -- Yeezy shoes and Lululemon pants! 

There's a story here ... the 25-year-old NBA player and his fiancee, Hailey Pince, were celebrating their 4-year anniversary and decided ... why not get married?

So, they hit the courthouse and made it happen!

"No makeup, hair in a quick ugly pony, Larry in some lulu lemon pants and yeezy’s," Hailey said in an IG post. 

But this ain't about saving a buck or two ... Hailey says there's a big destination celebration coming down the pike.

"We needed to get the legal marriage done before our destination wedding and today just seemed like the best day to do it! Happy Four Years! Can't wait for our real wedding!"

Congrats! 

NBA Star Myles Turner Getting Jacked ... To Stop LeBron??

6/18/2018 1:52 PM PDT

Here's what it looks like when you've had enough of losing to LeBron James.

Indiana Pacers star Myles Turner -- just weeks after losing another playoff series to LBJ and the Cavs -- decided to go from skinny fat to shredded ... and we gotta say, the results so far are impressive.

The almost 7-footer's been hitting the weights the last five weeks ... but he's also been moving his big-ass frame around in boxing sparring sessions.

FYI ... prior to Turner beefing up this summer -- he weighed in at 255 pounds. LeBron -- the guy who's killed Turner and the Pacers' playoff dreams the past two years -- clocked in at 250 ... at three inches shorter!

Of course ... LeBron might be outta the East next year and away from the Pacers' playoff path ... but, just in case -- happy bulking season!
