Austin Rivers I'd Bust My Dad's Ass In 1-On-1 ... Even In His NBA Prime

3/26/2017 12:45 AM PDT

Austin Rivers is engaging in some serious generational smack talk with his dad, Doc ... saying he'd beat the hell out of his pops in a 1-on-1 game ... even when Doc was at the top of his game.

Austin currently plays for his dad on the Clippers, but before that Doc was an All-Star player in NBA. So when we got Austin out at Catch, we had to ask who'd win an all Rivers battle if both guys were young.

"I'm whooping that ass every time."

We got Doc a little later and asked the same question -- he said Austin would win because he's "old" now ... which tells us he fully didn't get the scenario and thinks a young him would bust his kid's ass.

Carmelo Anthony Chillin With Sam Cassell ... L.A. Bound?

3/20/2017 1:03 PM PDT

If you like seeing Carmelo Anthony in Knicks colors, turn your head ... cause Melo was out in L.A. Sunday night chatting it up at Catch with Sam Cassell, an assistant coach for the Clippers.

The Clippers are one of Melo's most talked about potential landing spots, and rumor has it that a trade between them and the Knicks almost happened at the deadline.

Add into the equation Melo's wife, LaLa, has an exploding acting career (never hurts to be in L.A.) and the Knicks seem to be souring on Anthony in favor of Porzingis and this meeting could be HUGE.

Or, the guys just both like seafood.

DeAndre Jordan Hits Dinner Jackpot ... After Clippers Victory

1/17/2017 10:15 AM PST

Doc Rivers has a reputation for picking up the bill for his players whenever they're in a restaurant at the same time ... and Monday night, the lucky winner was DeAndre Jordan

Doc and a group of friends hit up Catch in West Hollywood after the Clippers beat the OKC Thunder ... and moments after he sat down, DJ arrived with some pals of his own.


Of course, DJ can pay for his own meal if he wants to ... dude's riiiich ... but we're told the players always appreciate the gesture. 

Oh, Russell Westbrook also arrived to the hot spot after the game ... but we're guessing he paid for his own damn food. 

BTW -- some solace for you Clipper fans, Doc Rivers told us Chris Paul is gonna be "just fine" after suffering an injury last night. So, your eventual playoff exit is in no peril.

DeAndre Jordan 'Meryl Streep's My Crush' ... 'I Love Her'

1/9/2017 5:56 AM PST

DeAndre Jordan wasn't offended by Meryl Streep's shots at sports during her Golden Globes speech Sunday night ... HE LOVED IT. 

In fact, the Clippers star says Meryl's been his crush since he was 6 years old -- "I love her!"

Don't believe him?

We pushed him on his favorite Meryl movie ... he flunked that test. 

DeAndre Jordan In Car Accident ... Person Hospitalized

12/27/2016 1:32 PM PST

DeAndre Jordan was involved in a car accident in Playa del Rey moments ago ... and while he appears okay ... another person was hospitalized, TMZ Sports has learned.  

Witnesses tell us ... it all went down around noon. The accident involved 2 cars -- a matte black Tesla and an SUV. 

Unclear what caused the accident ... but an ambulance, fire truck and police have responded to the scene. 

The Clippers say Chris Paul was not involved in the accident -- but was nearby when he heard about the crash and came to the scene with Clippers staffers to check on his friend. 

Another person was transported to a nearby hospital. The extent of that person's injuries are unknown. 

A witness tells us one person involved was seen with a sling on his arm. 

Chris Paul to Kobe: Congrats on the Kid, But 'Keep Going Til You Have a Boy!'

12/9/2016 12:30 AM PST

Chris Paul is super happy that his friend, Kobe Bryant, just had his 3rd baby girl -- but he has a message for the NBA legend ... "Keep going 'til you get a boy!"

"Kobe deserves to have a little boy, man" ... the Clippers superstar added. 

We're guessing CP3 wants Kobe to experience the same father/son basketball bond he shares with his kid (it's adorable) ... and let's be honest, everyone would LOVE to see another Bryant in the NBA one day!

For the record, Kobe already has a kid with the family hoops skills -- his 10-year-old daughter, Gianna, is rumored to have a LIGHTS OUT jumper.

Plus, boys are messy anyway.

Doc Rivers I Deserved Ejection Shouldn't Have Acted Like That

12/5/2016 7:05 AM PST

Doc Rivers knows he crossed a line when he LOST HIS MIND on an NBA ref Tuesday night -- saying plain and simple ... he shouldn't have acted that way. 

The outburst went viral -- Clippers players had to restrain Doc from going after ref Ken Mauer when he was issued a technical foul for talking to another ref during the 1st overtime period against the Nets.  

"Yeah, you don't act like that," Doc told us at Catch in West Hollywood this weekend ... "You should get thrown out for that."

Don't worry ... Doc says he's cool with Mauer too -- calling him a good guy. 

There's more ... we also asked Rivers about certain NBA players saying they would boycott a White House championship visit during Trump's administration. It's clear he's NOT on board with that. 

Jimmy Butler Eating with the Enemy ... Dinner with DeAndre Jordan After Clips Beat Bulls

11/21/2016 7:43 AM PST

Guess if you can't beat 'em, eat with 'em ... at least that's how Bulls guard Jimmy Butler must feel ... 'cause he grabbed dinner with DeAndre Jordan just moments after DJ's Clippers handled the Bulls.

Clippers beat the Bulls 102-95 Saturday night ... but that didn't stop the DJ and JB from dining out at Catch -- which is apparently the only restaurant in Los Angeles -- after the final whistle blew.

Our camera got the two men leaving ... and when we asked Jordan if the loser of the game had to pay he smiled and said "I had a good meal" (free food tastes better).

Bonus bombshell revelations? Jordan says his character of Mrs. Hooper in the State Farm ads is DONE FOR GOOD ... which is a major drag, like a BIGGEST drag, the BIGGEST drag we've ever seen.

Donald Sterling Hotline Bling With Mystery Blonde

10/21/2016 6:30 AM PDT

Donald Sterling went looking for stuff older than he is -- but he did it with a chick quite a bit younger than him.

The 82-year-old ex-Clippers owner was cruising antique shops in Bev Hills Thursday with a hot blonde on his arm and his best b-boy vest on his back. Looks like he got some smartphone lessons too. 

Seems too little too late for Sterling to embrace hip-hop culture, but if you're gonna do it, Donald -- try the red down jacket next time, dawg. Just sayin' ...

Doc Rivers I Love Chris Bosh ... But He Ain't Gonna be a Clipper

10/17/2016 2:19 PM PDT

Bad news for DeAndre Jordan ... looks like his boss ain't too keen on his plan to sign Chris Bosh to the Clippers. 

DJ had told us last week that he would sacrifice playing time to get the 11-time All-Star on the Clip squad -- so, when we saw Doc Rivers out this weekend we had to ask about it. 

FYI, the execs at the Miami Heat have said they're cutting ties with Bosh over his blood clot condition -- though Bosh says he's determined to continue his NBA career with another team. 

Unfortunately, Doc made it pretty clear Bosh ain't gonna land with the Clippers. 

BONUS -- Doc was having dinner with Larry David ... prettay, prettay, prettay cool. 

DeAndre Jordan Chris Bosh Should Come to Clippers ... 'I'll Come Off the Bench!'

10/12/2016 6:19 AM PDT

If Chris Bosh wants to continue his NBA career, he should do it in LOS ANGELES -- so says DeAndre Jordan who tells TMZ Sports he's willing to sacrifice minutes to get CB on the Clippers. 

With the Miami Heat moving to cut ties with Bosh over his blood clot condition, the 11-time All-Star appeared in a video on Tuesday vowing continue to pursue his NBA career. 

So, when we shot Jordan out in L.A. Tuesday night, we asked what he thinks Bosh should do next. 

"I think that he should come to the Clippers ... I'd come off the bench!" 

Doc ... thoughts?

Breaking News

NBA legend Paul Pierce says he's ready to hang 'em up ... after ONE MORE run at an NBA title. 

The Truth just released a video statement on The Players' Tribune -- and says he's realized that it's time to move on from the game of basketball ... "It's my final season." 

Pierce says he's at peace with the decision -- and says he believes the Clippers are legitimate title contenders. 

He also admits, "It's a young man's game" ... but says he thinks he has one more opportunity "with a great team."

Pierce was drafted by the Celtics with the 10th pick in the 1998 Draft -- and led the team to an NBA title in 2008. 


DeAndre Jordan I'm The Freshest Big Man In The NBA!! ... Sorry, Blake Griffin

9/22/2016 6:21 AM PDT

L.A. Clippers star DeAndre Jordan is confident he's head and shoulders above the competition when it comes to style ... saying he's the most fashionable big man in the league.

TMZ Sports ran into the All-NBA center (lookin' fresh as always) when we asked him straight-up if he's the most stylish player in the association.

"6'10" and up? Hell yeah!" DJ pledges ... before telling us whether he shares his threads with fellow big man and LAC teammate Blake Griffin.

Check out the clip ... sounds like someone ain't a team player when it comes to clothes.
