Breaking News

0623-salvatore-bimbo-ronnie-GO_FUND_ME-01The 21-year-old fan who was pushed off an upper level deck at Oracle Arena during Game 7 of the NBA Finals is in intensive care and fighting for his life ... this according to his father. 

The victim is Salvator Bimbo -- a Golden State Warriors fan who traveled from L.A. to see the game with his brother. 

Bimbo's father says a fight broke out at the game and a rival fan grabbed Salvator by the legs and pushed him over a railing

"My son’s cheekbone is smashed, his nose, his upper-eye, his head, his brain,” Salvator's father told KRON4.com

"He’s leaking from his ears blood. Not very good. He’s a beautiful young man. Did not deserve this.”

Salvator's family started a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs. They're also begging anyone with information about the suspects to come forward.

So far, no arrests have been made.

EXCLUSIVE

It might be time for Steph Curry to have a Twitter boundaries talk with wife -- at least according to NFL safety Dashon Goldson who says that's what he would do if his lady pulled an Ayesha. 

Dashon -- who spent 9 years in the NFL -- says he likes that Ayesha does her thing on social media ... but if he was in Steph's shoes, he'd try to explain why calling out the NBA is a HUGE distraction during the NBA playoffs. 

BTW, Goldson was leaving Barney's in Bev Hills where he dropped $5k on his dad for Father's Day, which is THIS SUNDAY.

Go get your dad a gift -- consider this your warning.

Breaking News

0617-curry-getty-01Steph Curry and his wife, Ayesha, claim her father was "profiled" and "almost arrested" by NBA security at Game 6 in Cleveland Thursday night ... in a case of mistaken identity. 

Ayesha first went public about the situation after the game -- tweeting, "Police racial profiled my father and told him to remove credentials and tried to arrest him."

0617-sub-ayesha-curry-twitter-01Steph echoed her comments to ESPN on his way out of the stadium -- after the Warriors lost to the Cavs.

But NBA security says it can explain ... telling ESPN Ayesha's father bared a resemblance to a con artist named David Aminzadeh who had been using fake credentials to sneak into major sporting events.

Exclusive Details

0613-draymond-green-oakland-as-golden-state-warriors-TMZ-01Draymond Green was asked to throw out the first pitch at Monday's Oakland A's game -- but respectfully declined ... this according to a rep for the A's. 

With the Golden State Warriors star serving a 1 game suspension -- and unable to be in the arena for Game 5 of the NBA Finals -- Green said he would be attending the A's game, located right next to Oracle Arena. 

TMZ Sports spoke with A's Director of Corporate Communications, Catherine Aker, who confirmed Green will be in the stadium ... but doesn't want to make a spectacle. 

"We extended an invitation to Draymond to throw out the first pitch and he declined. He would prefer to keep a low profile while at our game."

Green will reportedly be allowed inside the arena to celebrate with his team if they win -- and it just so happens there is a tunnel which connects the Oakland Coliseum to Oracle Arena.

0610_ayesha_roni_clevland_golden_state-game-2That smoke show of a Warriors fan who gave Steph Curry the sex face during game 2 of the NBA Finals is back -- and she's sitting IN FRONT of Steph's wife.

Yes, Instagram model Roni Rose has found herself courtside in Cleveland for game 4, while Ayesha Curry is almost directly behind her ... 2 rows back.

This creates an issue for Steph: How the hell can he look up at Ayesha AND keep Rose out of his line of sight at the same damn time??

More problematic for the NBA MVP -- Rose is sitting right behind the Warriors bench.

Focus, Curry. Focus.

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

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

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.
