EXCLUSIVE

0622-klay-thomson-gallery-launch-01It pays to be #1 ... just ask Golden State Warriors superstar Klay Thompson -- who celebrated his NBA championship with a 2-on-1 underwater twerk session at a Vegas pool party.  

It all went down at the Liquid Pool Lounge party at the Aria ... where Thompson and a bunch of his teammates let loose ... poppin' champagne and dancing with hot ladies.  

But the highlight ... when Klay and two female friends hit the pool and got their grind on!  

Afterward, Klay made a video with two OTHER ladies ... while slamming Moet.

Wonder what the Cavs are up to?

How much is MC Hammer enjoying the celebration parade for his Golden State Warriors in downtown Oakland today? 

So much so that he rode a giant, fire-breathing snail along the parade route, flanked by the mayor of the city ... pretty freakin' epic if you ask us.

Hammer isn't the only huge Bay Area celeb at the parade ... Seattle Seahawks stud Marshawn Lynch is there too, but had to settle for riding with the team along the route. 

Congrats dubs ...

MC Hammer had one helluva night ... not only did he fly into Cleveland on a sick private jet, but the proud Oaklandian partied with the Golden State Warriors moments after they won the NBA championship! 

For the record, Hammer is one of the team's BIGGEST fans ... he's basically Golden State's Jack Nicholson. 

So, when the team clinched last night, Hammer was right there with Steph Curry, Draymond Green and the rest of the crew to celebrate the team's first title in 40 years. 

Haven't seen Hammer this excited since that "Pumps and a Bump" video ... 

Congrats!

It was CHAOS in Oakland Tuesday night ... with Golden State Warriors fans brawling in the streets -- and one fan INSANELY jumping off a street sign ... and it was all caught on video. 

No word why the crowd started fighting ... or if anyone was arrested ... but it was pretty violent, as you can see in footage captured by Todd Johnson of the SFBusinessTimes. 

Todd also rolled as some CRAZY fan scaled a street sign ... and then LEAPED OFF ... into the arms of waiting Warriors fans who, thankfully, caught him. 

The man appeared to be okay and continued to rage in the streets. 

Metta World Peace

LeBron Shoulda Passed More!!!

EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James was too damn ball hoggish during the NBA Finals -- and needed to share the rock with his teammates -- so says Metta World Peace.

The former NBA champ was out in Hollywood Tuesday night when we asked how he felt about the Golden State Warriors winning the whole thing in Cleveland. 

Metta made it clear he thinks LeBron is amazing ... but says, "I wish that early in the series that he would've passed to his teammates and you know ... got them in a rhythm."

"I think he could've played better with his team." 

Boom.  

Golden State Warriors

Unleashing Tiny Secret Weapon

... For NBA Finals

EXCLUSIVE

0603-nayah-damasen-youtube-01The key to the NBA Finals could be a 10-year-old girl -- at least, the Golden State Warriors hope so ... 'cause they're trotting out their pint-sized lucky charm to sing the national anthem for Game 1 ... and she's virtually unbeatable. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... the Warriors have tapped Nayah Damasen to do the honors this afternoon -- an aspiring singer who's been crooning for the team since she was 5. 

So, why does this spell DOOM for the Cavaliers? 

Nayah has been ON FIRE this postseason -- every time she's belted out "The Star Spangled Banner" at a playoff game, the Warriors have emerged victorious. 

FYI -- The team that wins Game 1 of the NBA Finals has historically gone on to win the series over 70% of the time.

No pressure, Nayah.

RG3 is firmly planted in the pro-Steph Curry camp -- when it comes to kids at news conferences -- telling TMZ Sports he plans to follow suit with his own little girl ... when she's old enough. 

The Redskins QB and his wife Rebecca welcomed their 1st daughter Reese Ann earlier this month -- so, when we saw him out in D.C. this weekend we had to ask ... is Reese Ann gonna get a Riley Curry moment

0502-rg3-instagramOf course, certain media members have been bitching about Steph's decision to bring Riley to the NBA post-game pressers -- claiming she disrupts the regular process with her adorableness.  

But Griffin's all about it ... telling us he'll "for sure" bring her to the podium ... "I just don't want to bring her too early." 

By the way, RG3 was attending an event called the House Inc.’s National Capital A Cinderella Ball -- which honors children connected to the military with a disability or life-threatening illness.

EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James won't be "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" anytime soon ... 'cause the star of the '90's sitcom Mark Curry tells TMZ Sports the KING has NO CHANCE against his Warriors in the NBA Finals.

Mark was at LAX when we asked the Oakland native if he's scared his hometown Warriors' championship run is in peril now that they're matched up with the Cavs -- and LeBron -- in the NBA Finals.

Check out the clip -- not only is Mark not afraid of LeBron ... he's straight up CALLING HIM OUT ... saying that Steph Curry and the boys from the Bay are gonna smack the crown right off Bronny's head (basketball wise).

Be careful, Mark ... don't count your confetti just yet.

breaking news

0528_OBAMA_GETTYPresident Obama just took a stand on the NBA Finals ... saying there's no way J.R. Smith has a chance to outshoot Steph Curry ... despite the fact Smith has been ON FIRE in the playoffs. 

Obama went to Twitter to answer some questions ... when someone wrote: 

"Can JR Smith out shoot Steph Curry and lead the Cavs to a championship?"

Obama's response -- "jr smith having a great season but the heart of the Cavs is Lebron. And no one can outshoot Curry - maybe Korver if wide open."

So far, no response from Smith ... but we're guessing it's coming.
