Nick Young Sued Allegedly Attacks Basketball Player ... During Church League Game

11/28/2016 4:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128-nick-young-tmzNick Young threw a violent temper tantrum after not getting a foul call in a church league basketball game back in August ... and allegedly beat the crap out of an opposing player ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Young is being sued by Luis Solis -- who claims he was playing against the Lakers star in a game on the court at the Shepherd of the Hills church in Porter Ranch, CA on August 18th. 

In the court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Solis claims Young became "enraged" after he thought Solis fouled him ... and the ref missed the call. 

Solis says Young flipped out -- and beat him down to the ground. At that point, a bunch of Nick's teammates jumped in and began to kick him while he was down. 

Solis says he suffered serious injuries including a concussion -- and claims it's not the first time Young has gotten violent during pick-up games. We're told Solis has not filed a police report but is contemplating doing so. 

He's suing for unspecified damages. We've reached out to Young for comment. So far, no word back.

That's when things escalated -- and the Dolphins fans got even more violent -- beating the man down in front of his family. 

We're reaching out to police to see if anyone was arrested.

11/28/2016 6:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dwight Howard doesn't like being called a bitch -- and was physically restrained when he got into it with a Lakers fan after the game Sunday night.

TMZ Sports has footage in which you can hear a man shouting obscenities at Howard after the Lakers beat the Hawks 109-94 at Staples Center. 

At one point the man -- who we're told appeared to be in his 20s -- says, "You're a bitch!" 

Dwight -- who was on the way to the locker room -- stopped in his tracks and jawed back at the heckler, "Come back here and say it."

A team official grabs Howard and starts physically pushing the 6'11" superstar back toward the tunnel ... as he continues to challenge the fan.

It's not the first time Howard's been heckled at Staples -- the former Laker was taunted last year with a "Kobe" chant during a playoff game against the Clippers. He wasn't happy then either.

Birdman Furious at Lil Wayne ... No Respek Means No Deal!

11/21/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1117-birdman-lil-wayne-tmz-01Birdman's legal war with Lil Wayne is back to square one, because Weezy continues to drop major disrespect on his ex-mentor's name.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... lawyers for the 2 camps were close to reaching a deal -- one meeting away, in fact -- when Wayne publicly dissed Birdman by changing the lyrics in "I'm Me" from a Cash Money shout-out to a Jay Z shout-out.

We're told Birdman has his own beef with Jay, which made Wayne's diss sting even more. Lil Wayne's "Suck my d***!" at that same show didn't help either -- so he pulled the plug on negotiations.

The bottom line, we're told, is if they're ever gonna settle the $51 million lawsuit ... both sides need to stop jawing in public.

L.A. County sheriff's deputies swarmed the area ... some carrying stun bag rifles, which deploy little bags with beads. It appears no shots were fired, but just the presence of cops was enough to end things.

EXCLUSIVE

Goldberg is warning Brock Lesnar ... keep your freakin' elbows to yourself -- making it clear if Brock lets his arms go crazy in their upcoming WWE match, retaliation is a-comin'.

Of course, Brock left Randy Orton a bloody mess when they faced off at SummerSlam back in August -- when it appeared Lesnar caught him with a very real elbow to the face. It was brutal.

So, with Goldberg set to do battle with Brock at WWE Survivor Series on Nov. 20th -- we asked if he was concerned about suffering the same fate.

"I don't care what he did to Randy Orton. I've been throwing elbows for the past 12 years at my muay thai gym. I hope he throws elbows at me. I'm completely serious."

Goldberg says he's in killer shape and ready to roll.

Fear the Spear.
