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.

Nick Young 'Legalize Cocaine!' (Update: I'm Kidding, Y'all)

6/20/2018 6:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Young's thrilled marijuana is becoming legal across the country ... but he's already onto the next issue -- COKE!!!

"I want people to pass cocaine," the NBA star told TMZ Sports outside 1 OAK on Tuesday night ... "Everybody needs to do cocaine!"

For the record, cocaine isn't illegal everywhere -- did you know blow is sorta legal in Colombia where people can possess 1 gram or less? There's similar laws in the Czech Republic and Uruguay.

And, there's been a real argument that legalizing all drugs could actually benefit the society.  

Aside from the booger sugar convo, we also spoke with Swaggy about LeBron James, the Warriors and how he's blinging out his brand new NBA Championship ring! 

Also ... kids, don't do drugs. 

11:30 AM PT -- Swaggy P just issued a statement saying CHILLAX -- he was just kidding around. 

Ayesha Curry Houston Restaurant Attacked On Yelp ... By Rockets Fans

6/20/2018 10:39 AM PDT
Breaking News

Houston Rockets fans are still so bitter at being knocked out of the playoffs by the Warriors, they've gone to Yelp to take out their frustrations on Ayesha Curry's new Houston restaurant. 

Steph Curry's wife is opening International Smoke in Houston in July -- and a bunch of haters have already bombarded the page with anti-Warriors trash talk, as first pointed out by NBA reporter Tomer Azarly.

Some of the highlights ... 

-- "Steph is overrated. Klay sucks" 

-- "This is absolutely the worst place to go - her husband cheated his way to a championship and now she has the guts to open up a place here??"

-- "Waited 35 mins for water and it tasted like Seth curry tears ! Will never be back ! Can't support this place .. Harden MVP"

-- "Any real rockets fans will NEVER step foot into this place. Disgusting."

-- "Can't believe I logged on here and took time out of my day just to give this 1 star. Go rockets."

As you can imagine, the comments have already been flagged by Yelp -- which is now reviewing the page to take out the fake critics.

Funny as hell though. 

Matt Barnes Rips Tristan Thompson ... You're FAKE Tough!

6/17/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Matt Barnes says the REAL reason people in the NBA don't like Tristan Thompson is because he's a fake-ass tough guy who's all talk ... no action. 

Since Barnes is tight with Draymond Green -- who also hates Tristan -- we asked him where the animosity comes from ... and Barnes didn't mince words. 

"A lot of people are tough on the court and then when you seem them off the court, they're not as tough as they want to be," Barnes told us.

Then, he added this shot ... "People know [Tristan's] not built like that. It's known, period."

As for Draymond ... he refused to shake Thompson's hand in Cleveland after the four-game sweep, and then said at the championship parade Tuesday, "Tristan, we ain't cut the same."

Barnes says the beef has nothing to do with the Khloe Kardashian drama ... it's solely about Tristan talkin' tough, but not backing it up.

BONUS: We also asked Barnes where he thinks LeBron will end up ... and Matt's money is on one of his former teams. 

Smash Mouth Cusses Out Myles Garrett 'Nobody Knows Who The F You Are!'

6/14/2018 2:06 PM PDT
Breaking News

Smash Mouth -- yes, that band from "Shrek" -- has got some balls on 'em ... throwing F bombs at NFL star Myles Garrett!!!

Why, you ask? 

The band apparently took MAJOR offense to an interview Garrett gave ripping Kevin Durant ... where the Browns star said, "KD broke the league" by jumping to the Warriors to win a title. 

"You hopped onto a 73-9 team and he took the easy way out in my mind," Garrett said on 92.3 The Fan. 

He added one more shot -- "Me, I'm too competitive to try and ride on somebody's coattails to get a W."

Enter Smash Mouth -- big Golden State Warriors fans -- with expletive-laden Durant defense.

"Hey Myles Garrett,.....nobody knows who the F you are so nobody gives a F what you would do."

"And Genius the @warriors didn't win the Championship the season before KD signed. So not sure what 'coattails' you're referring to. This your Twitter page Aaaaahole?  @MylesLGarrett."

So, what now? There's only one solution -- Smash Mouth must fight Myles Garrett. 

Please.

EXCLUSIVE

Steph Curry and Kevin Durant went champagne crazy at their victory parade on Tuesday ... 'cause the Warriors sprayed and drank HALF A MILLION DOLLARS worth of booze ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Fresh off their $400k locker-room celebration after sweeping the Cavaliers on Friday, the Dubs had all the Luc Belaire Rare Gold, Luxe and Rosé they'd possibly need to keep the party going ... including 6-liter and HUGE 15-liter bottles!!

These dudes clearly know how to get lit like champs. After all ... 3 outta 4.

Nick Young & J.R. Smith Skins Vs. Skins ... Who Wore It Better?!

6/12/2018 1:56 PM PDT

Nick Young and J.R. Smith LOVE to show skin when it comes to celebrating titles ... so it's only right we presented an NBA championship parade edition of "Who Wore it Better?!?!"

Swag Champ -- formerly Swaggy P -- lost his shirt for the Warriors parade earlier Tuesday afternoon ... spicing it up with a snazzy sport coat and a couple chains.

But, let's not forget the OG J.R. Swish ... who went completely shirtless for the Cleveland Cavs' title parade back in 2016.

So, now that both Shirtless Bros are NBA champions, we gotta ask ...

Draymond Green Shades LeBron James Again With Championship Shirt

6/12/2018 10:55 AM PDT
Breaking News

Draymond Green's over the smack talking and onto the shirt talking once again.

The Golden State Warriors' biggest troll dipped way back into a November tiff with LeBron James to bring some subtle LBJ smack talk to the Dubs' victory parade Tuesday.

You remember the story ... 'Bron posted an Arthur closed-fist meme and captioned it "Mood..." back in the fall.

Unclear what LBJ was referring to, but Green fired back later with his own "Mood..." post.

The beef chilled -- at least, until this week ... when Draymond brought back the meme on a black T-shirt -- with three rings on Arthur's hand.

FYI ... this ain't the first time Draymond's used a championship parade to take shots at the King -- tellin' the crowd at last year's party that James "started the super team, bro!" while wearing a "Quickie" shirt in reference to the series only lasting 5 games.

Who knows what team LeBron will play for next season ... but we do know if we see Green vs. Bron Part V, the smack talk will be fun.

Kevin Durant J.R. Smith's Bonehead Play 'Broke' The Cavs!!

6/12/2018 6:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

J.R. Smith's Game 1 blunder wasn't just responsible for LeBron breaking his hand ... it was also the reason the Warriors broke the Cavs -- so says Kevin Durant.

K.D. went on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Monday night and explained to the talk-show host how J.R. brainfarting and running the wrong way at the end of regulation to start the series essentially ended the Cavs.

"We knew we kind of broke them a little bit with that one," the NBA Finals MVP said.

There's more ... Durant says there will be no summer of drama when it comes to his Bay Area future -- 'cause he ain't about to leave the Dubs' dynasty yet.

As for if LeBron wanted to join up with him, Steph, Klay and Draymond -- K.D. didn't seem so sure about that.

"I just don't think that'll happen, man."

Golden State Warriors Back-to-Back Champs In $400k Champagne Showers!!!

6/9/2018 7:17 AM PDT

Every sports dynasty deserves a wild turn up, and Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and the rest of the Golden State Warriors didn't disappoint after winning the NBA Championship ... mostly. 

Moments after the Warriors secured the bag -- back-to-back titles, and 3 out of the last 4 -- they doused themselves in super expensive champagne. Steph definitely came prepared for the burn ... with ski goggles protecting his eyes. 

Here's the lowdown on the high-priced locker room bash: 300 bottles of Moët & Chandon -- 150 Impérial Golden Luminous magnums, $1,250 a pop in nightclubs ... and 150 Nectar Imperial Rose magnums, $1,500 each!!

Sweet celebration, but we gotta say ... WHERE you win says a lot about how crazy your championship celebration gets. Sure, GSW turned up in the locker room, but where's the awesome nightclub bash with world famous DJs?? See the Washington Capitals for that.

The lesson? Whenever possible, win the title in Vegas!!

Or at least fly the team jet directly there. Just sayin' ...

Wanna play a game that's more competitive than the current NBA Finals??

Grab some buddies and take a guess at which Cavs or Warriors players are rockin' which tattoos!!

Who has a Michael Jordan jersey tatted on his abs? Who's got a red "It" balloon inked on his right arm? And which Finals MVP contender has his little baby tattooed on his left forearm?

Play with your friends ... and see if you can win more times than the Cavs did/will do against the Warriors.

Kevin Durant Held Back from CLE Hecklers ... At Team Hotel

6/7/2018 5:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Durant did not like being told his alma mater is "butt" -- and it almost led to a confrontation outside the Warriors team hotel Wednesday night.

KD -- fresh from hitting that dagger that gave Golden State a 3-0 series lead over Cleveland -- was returning to the Ritz-Carlton ... where Cavs fans were heckling him on the way in. 

They shouted stuff like "you suck" and "where LeBron at?" -- but the one that got him to turn around ... "KD, UT's butt!" 

Obviously, Durant went to the University of Texas ... and he stopped in his tracks to stare the heckler down.

In fact, a team official started to hold KD back.

Don't worry, he walked back into the hotel without incident. 

For the record, UT basketball was "butt" last year -- finishing 9th in the BIG 12.

But, in all seriousness ... Props to KD for not killing this guy.
