4/14/2016 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Draymond Green was feelin' goooood after clinching win #73 Wednesday night ... keeping the party train rollin' at a Bay Area nightclub until 2 AM ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

Green -- along with Golden State Warriors rookie Kevon Looney -- hit up Pure Lounge around 12:30 AM and partied with some pretty pumped up GS fans until the place closed. 

The people at Pure went all out for Draymond ... breaking out bottles of booze, confetti and hot chicks in sexy Warriors uniforms. 

All in all ... it was a good night to be Draymond.

4/8/2016 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stephen Curry chalked up an L Thursday before the Warriors took on the Spurs ... getting his butt kicked in a ScootEBike race ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

It all went down in NorCal ... a rep for Raytroniks (the company behind the bike) says they sent a street team to gift the $1,600 electronic bikes to Steph and Ayesha Curry. 

BTW, the bikes can get up to 20 mph ... they're kinda like the next iteration of those hoverboards. 

We're told Draymond Green also got one last night ... so ... teammate race???

4/4/2016 7:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Klay Thompson's dad Mychal Thompson is calling out Scottie Pippen ... saying his son's team would definitely beat the '96 Bulls in a never-gonna-happen fantasy basketball series.

Thompson -- a former NBA #1 overall pick -- was out in L.A. when we asked him about Pip saying his record setting Bulls team would SWEEP the Warriors if the two were able to magically meet up.

The comments caught fire on social media with some accusing Pippen of old man "get off my yard" nostalgic bravado ... and some saying he was dead on.

Count Mychal among that first group ... 'cause he says Steph and the gang would take out MJ and Pippen's crew in a sizzling seven game series.

Check out the clip -- and let the barber shop arguments begin.

NBA's Festus Ezeli Pranked By Warriors 'You've Been Cut, Bro'

3/31/2016 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is pretty damn funny ... if you're not NBA star Festus Ezeli

The Golden State Warriors star was targeted for a hilarious prank by some of his teammates, including Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson ... who executed a plot to convince Festus he'd been cut from the team. 

It's all a part of Lyft's new "prank mode" -- which will allow people in L.A., NY and SF to pull pranks on their friends on April 1st using the Lyft app.

Iguodala's plan involved a fake sports talk radio broadcast playing in the car ... in which the hosts broke news that Festus had just been fired from the Warriors. 

Several of FE's teammates sent texts saying it was nice working with him and wishing him luck in the future ... and you gotta see the look on Ezeli's face -- he's trying so hard not to get pissed. 

Don't worry ... Iguodala eventually reveals it's a prank ... and wait'll see you how Festus handles it. 

Draymond Green Deletes Crazy 118 MPH Video (Update)

3/23/2016 3:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar6:04 AM PT -- Draymond Green addressed the situation after the Warriors game Wednesday night -- and didn't deny being the driver. 

"Obviously, poor judgment," Green said ... "But I think it's kind of out-of-story of what it's trying to be made out to be. I'm not here to take any attention away from this team."

The Warriors also issued a statement saying, "We are aware of the video and will discuss it with Draymond after tonight's game. We hold all of our players and staff members to a high standard that sends a positive message and example to our fans and the community in general."

"We look forward to having a conversation with Draymond and getting additional information."

update_grey_gray_barBizarre situation involving NBA star Draymond Green -- who posted (and then deleted) a video that appeared to show him driving 118 mph in his BMW ... and now his reps aren't talking. 

Green posted the video to his Snapchat story Wednesday -- shot from the driver's seat in a BMW that's tearing up a public road that appears to be in the Bay Area. The video never reveals the face of the person driving the car. 

People on social media began to freak out -- asking Green why he would post the video on his page and if he was the driver. 

Soon after, Green deleted the video from his page. 

In another video Green posted earlier to the same Snapchat story, the NBA star can be seen in what appears to be the same car ... though it's unclear if the footage was shot during the same ride as the 118 mph. 

We reached out to Green's agent and the Golden State Warriors for comment -- so far no one's talking.

Thompson has a way with the ladies ... whether it be in Vegas or L.A -- remember the underwater twerk fest?? 

(Having a championship ring and a $70 million contract tends to help).

You win ... you get roasted -- and Thursday, the Golden State Warriors became targets for the comedic stylings of President Barack Obama!! 

It's pretty funny -- the entire team arrived to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave to be honored by POTUS ... and Obama delivered zinger after zinger, targeting everyone from Steph Curry to Klay Thompson. 

Really, the only person who got some love was Steph's daughter Riley (besides Steve Kerr who got props for being on the Bulls).

Exclusive Details

0115-kobe-bryant-bottle-tmz-01Here it is ... a picture of the special bottle of wine the Golden State Warriors gave to Kobe Bryant ... and we're told it's worth a FORTUNE!!

TMZ Sports spoke with John Schwartz -- the owner of the Amuse Bouche Winery in Napa Valley -- who tells us the special 5 liter Jerobaum bottle of 2012 cabernet was specially made for #24. 

"The wine was made by famed winemaker Heidi Barrett," Schwartz tells us -- Barrett happens to be one of the most famous winemakers in the country. 

Schwartz would not put an exact number on the value of the bottle -- but says similar bottles usually sell for "tens of thousands of dollars."

"This one is one of a kind ... it's priceless."

In fact, the bottle was hand-etched and then painted specifically for Bryant -- by request of the owners of the Warriors who are personal friends with Schwartz. 

Bryant was also gifted a Napa vacation package -- complete with dinners at some of the best restaurants in the area. 

BTW, Schwartz says Kobe shouldn't go poppin' this bottle anytime soon -- "It'll be great now ... but I think in 15 to 20 years it'll age beautifully."

Golden State Warriors Proposed Arena Would Cripple Hospital ... Lawsuit Claims

12/17/2015 3:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


The mother of a 6-year-old boy with a severe heart condition has filed a lawsuit hoping to stop plans for a new arena for the Golden State Warriors ... 1,000 feet from a children's hospital emergency room. 

Jennifer Wade is suing the chancellor of the University of California at San Francisco -- which owns the land where the proposed arena is set to be built. 

Wade claims the arena would cause traffic, crowds and other obstacles that could block access to lifesaving care. 

In her suit, Wade claims several public officials -- including S.F. mayor Ed Lee forced the university to sign the deal by threatening to retaliate against UCSF in some way if they got in the way of the plans. 

Wade says the issue is deeply personal to her -- since her 6-year-old son Magnus has a congenital heart defect and often seeks treatment at UCSF.

"He often needs emergency care at a moment’s notice. It terrifies me to think about being caught in traffic, unable to bring Magnus to the hospital."

"I filed this lawsuit because I can’t believe that the Chancellor would allow the Warriors to build their arena next to the hospital."

Wade is begging a judge to void the deal asap.

Exclusive Details

Drake and Steph Curry were super protected during their late night burger run -- in fact, even the BATHROOM was cleared out when Drake had to pee ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Check this out ... Drake and Steph hit up the fast food joint in Alameda, CA (right by where the Warriors play) around 1 AM on Thursday morning with a crew of 15 people ... including bodyguards. 

We're told both Drake and Steph were super nice and friendly -- each ordering up a double-double burger with animal style fries ... and Drake got the check. 

But when Drake had to drain the lizard, witnesses at the burger joint tell us they cleared out the bathroom and locked the door so Drizzy had total privacy. 

There's more ... we're told Drake went on the restaurant intercom and shouted his love for "Dub Nation" ... and when Curry's food was ready, Drake yelled, "STEPH CURRY FOR THE FRIES, THO!"

Everyone cheered ... it was awesome. 

BTW, Steph's wife Ayesha was there too and ordered her burger "protein style" -- which is a lettuce wrap instead of a bun. 

Good times.

1209-walton-olson-kerr-getty-tmz-01Luke Walton just got a LEGENDARY co-sign from one of the biggest names in basketball coaching history ... who says Walton has already proved he's got what it takes to be a head coach in the NBA.   

TMZ Sports spoke with Luke's college coach Lute Olson -- who's in the Basketball Hall of Fame after a historical run at the University of Arizona.  

Olson tells us he's been paying very close attention to how Walton's doing as the interim coach of the Golden State Warriors -- and says he's convinced Luke is ready for a full-time role. 

"Just watching him on the sideline, he handles himself really well. He is a great communicator. I can tell the players really like him and respect him."

Walton is currently filling in for Steve Kerr -- who also played for Lute -- and Olson says he couldn't be more proud of his proteges.  

As for Luke, Olson believes it's only a matter of time before he gets a serious job offer from another team. 

"I think he will be a very successful NBA coach and there is no doubt in my mind he will be an NBA coach."
