Swaggy P to Patrick Beverley: Were You Drunk? Clips Ain't Better Than Warriors

7/16/2018 7:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Young thinks Patrick Beverley must've been on the sauce when he declared the Clippers to be the best team in the NBA ... asking TMZ Sports, "He was drunk that night or something?"

Remember, earlier this month, Beverley proudly told us he REALLY believes his new Clip squad is better than the Lakers and the Warriors ... and are real contenders to win the NBA title. 

So, when we saw Swaggy -- who plays for the Warriors -- leaving Craig's in West Hollywood Sunday night ... we had to ask for his thoughts. His reaction says it all. 

There's more ... now that LeBron's in the West, we asked Swaggy to name some of the teams in the East that could make a real run.  

Steph Curry Crossed Up By Caddie at Celeb Golf Tourney

Breaking News

Steph Curry can't even let his guard down in the offseason ... 'cause the dude's getting challenged WHEREVER he goes -- even on the golf course!!

Curry was participating in the practice round at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament at Edgewood Tahoe on Thursday ... when his own caddie grabbed a basketball and put the NBA superstar in a blender!!

Curry's reaction is hilarious ... the dude even reenacts his infamous mouthpiece toss from the 2016 NBA Finals!!

(Obviously, Curry was in on the joke ... but, it's still really funny)

BTW -- there's a TON of athletes competing in the tourney Friday -- from Sean Payton to Jared Goff to Vince Carter. But, they didn't get crossed up by their caddies.

It wasn't all L's for Curry ... he did win the Korbel champagne poppin' contest!

As for the caddy ... nice to see Curry take it like a (3-time) champ.

Klay Thompson Erupts, Cusses Dude Out Over Violent Foul In Pickup Game

6/27/2018 11:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

Klay Thompson was PISSED after his friend got fouled hard in a pickup game in China -- with the NBA star cussing out one of the players and nearly coming to blows. 

What set Klay off was when Klay's pal drove to the hoop and an opposing player took out his legs in midair -- causing the guys to come crashing down HARD on the floor. 

Klay's pal was rightfully furious -- and that's when Thompson stormed onto the court to get in the other dude's face. 

"Come on, man. That's bullsh*t," Thompson says.

"If you want to fight him, then fight his ass -- don't undercut him. F*ckin' bullsh*t. That's bullsh*t, man. Bullsh*t. You don't do that bullsh*t."

"That's how you f*ckin' ruin somebody's career, god damnit. You don't do that. You don't do that sh*t."

Cooler heads prevailed, and Thompson left the court ... but #ChinaKlay's quickly taking on a whole new meaning this summer.

Klay Thompson LITTLE GIRL DESTROYS NBA STAR ... In Pop-A-Shot

6/26/2018 10:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

Klay Thompson took a break from celebrating his Warriors championship in China this week to get his ass whooped in Pop-A-Shot ... BY A BALLER-ASS LITTLE GIRL!!

The video is incredible ... a kid half of Klay's size hits shot after shot after shot -- while one of the NBA's greatest all-time shooters throws up bricks.

Unclear what the final score was ... but, at one point, it was 100 to 38.

Klay's college teammate at Wazzu appropriately captioned the video, "this girl is legend."

Don't feel bad for Klay ... it's about the only L he's taking in China this week -- check out the reception he gets from Chinese fans everywhere!!

Victor Oladipo To LeBron James: 'If You Want To Win, Come To Indy!'

6/26/2018 9:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Victor Oladipo's got the key for LeBron James to beat the Golden State Warriors next year ... and it only requires one thing from the King -- join the Pacers!!

We got the Indiana star leaving TAO on Monday night -- fresh off winning Most Improved Player at the NBA Awards -- and he told us all his squad needs in order to win a ring is a little LBJ.

Then, he gave us his best pitch to the NBA's top player.

"If you want to win, come to Indy!!"

Remember ... LeBron's been the reason the Pacers haven't advanced in the Eastern Conference Playoffs two years in a row -- so the move kills two birds with one stone for Oladipo.

Now ... if they DO get LeBron and DO score that elusive 'ship ... Victor told us he'd have to think long and hard about sitting out on a trip to the White House.

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.
