Byron Scott I Don't Wanna Be Friends w/ D'Angelo Russell ... 'It Is What It Is'

9/30/2016 6:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The rift between D'Angelo Russell and his former Lakers coach Byron Scott is irreparable -- so says Scott who tells TMZ Sports he doesn't want a relationship with the NBA star moving forward. 

Russell has been taking thinly veiled shots at Scott recently -- essentially blaming him for his lackluster rookie season.  

"Everything I went through was new, and there was no guidance from the people that were supposed to give me the guidance," Russell told the L.A. Times

So, when we saw Scott out in L.A. Thursday night, we asked how he felt about the youngster -- and he basically told us he doesn't care ... and isn't looking to be friends with the 20-year-old.  

We also asked Scott if he was interested in getting back into coaching in the near future -- his response, "No time soon."

Derrick Rose to Rape Accuser You're No Prude You Hooked Up With Nick Young

9/12/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0907-nick-young-derrick-rose-TMZ-01Derrick Rose is dragging Nick Young into his alleged rape case -- using his fellow NBA star in an attempt to discredit the accuser.

Rose's Jane Doe accuser claims she was traumatized by the alleged gang rape because she's "prudish" and sexually inexperienced. Rose's team says that's a big fat lie ... and they have a text referring to fellow NBA guard Nick Young to prove it.

According to docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the text was sent from Jane Doe to her roommate in November 2014. It says, "since u goin to nicks can u please tell him to give u my bra lol."

Rose says the roommate confirmed ... Jane Doe was referring to Nick Young in the text (and yes, Nick was dating Iggy at the time). 

The docs also claim Jane Doe interacted with lots of celebs and had sexual relationships with at least 2 NBA players other than Rose ... bringing a major question about her credibility into play.

We reached out to Nick Young ... he has no comment. 

D'Angelo Russell Heckled at Staples Center ... 'Hide Your Phones!'

9/8/2016 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You'd think Lakers star D'Angelo Russell would catch a break at his home court ... instead, he caught a bunch of crap on the way into the Drake concert. 

As the 20-year-old walked into Staples Center, a couple of hecklers yelled at him-- "Hide your phone!" 

At first, it seemed Russell was going to ignore it -- but moments later, stuck his head back outside the door and yelled something back at the guys. 

Our photog says it sounded like he said, "Eat a d**k." 

Check out the video ... seems about right.

The Lakers star had been dating USC volleyball star Niki Withers -- but sources close to the couple tell us they broke things off after a recent trip to Asia because they felt they were growing apart.

And perhaps the most meaningful sign ... they both reposted pictures of each other back to Instagram after scrubbing all traces right after the breakup.

D'Angelo Russell Something In Common With Swaggy P ... I'm Single Now Too!!

7/15/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0714-dangelo-russell-niki-withers-tmz-instagram-01Lakers guards are turning over women like they do basketballs ... first Nick and Iggy, now D'Angelo Russell is on the market ... after a breakup with his superstar college athlete GF Niki Withers.

The couple scrubbed each other off all social media -- a telltale sign of trouble in paradise -- and sources close to the situation confirmed the two are, in fact, dunzo.

"D'Angelo and Niki talked about where the relationship was going and decided mutually to break up," one source tells us. 

Unlike Nick & Iggy there's no bad blood between the two ... we're told the breakup was simply a case of two youngsters growing apart. 

The relationship endured some tough times ... with Niki standing by DR when his infamous video of Swaggy made him the number one bro code violator in the history of sports.

Question is, now that both men are single ... might it be time to reignite the friendship over a few thots?


Lakers Rookie Brandon Ingram Open To Acting But Basketball Comes First

7/7/2016 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0707_Brandon-Ingram_gettyLakers rookie Brandon Ingram ain't ruling out the entertainment industry ... so says his dad, who tells TMZ Sports his son is open to listening to pitches, as long as it doesn't affect his basketball career.

We talked to Donald Ingram -- father of the #2 overall pick -- about the different opportunities available to a young star athlete in Tinseltown.

His response ... they're not ruling anything out. But breathe easy, Lakers fans ... Ingram made it CRYSTAL CLEAR that his 18-year-old son's main focus is his NBA career.

“Playing in a market like this, he will have the opportunities to have outside work in entertainment," Ingram told us, "If Brandon has downtime and it doesn’t affect his game, he will take those opportunities into consideration."

Donald says Brandon is more likely to start off small ... possibly doing, "a couple commercials here and there."

"The fame and everything else will come with time. Right now, it’s all about putting in work."


Luol Deng Here For The Deng Party Celebrates Lakerness At Hollywood Night Spot

7/6/2016 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Luol Deng celebrated his arrival in Tinseltown the way any new Laker should ... thots, bottles and models ... hitting a Hollywood night spot and turning up Tuesday night.

We got Deng leaving 1 OAK in West Hollywood -- a spot regularly frequented by the Kardashians, Beibers and Rihannas of the world -- around 2:30 AM, telling us he definitely had a great time.

Deng wasn't the only freakishly tall guy turning up ... Andre Drummond and Jimmy Butler were also there ... and with the money the NBA's giving out these days, we're guessing a lot of people drank free.

Now go out there and bring the Lakers a championship, Luol (insert laughing emoji here)!
