1/8/2016 12:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rap star Common says there are no shortcuts to greatness ... and athletes who use HGH can never, ever be compared to legends like Michael Jordan and LeBron James ... who did it au naturel.

Common was out in Beverly Hills when we talked all things sports with him ...  and when the conversation turned to HGH ... the Chicago rapper sounded off.

HGH is a hot topic right now ... with everyone from Mark Cuban to Chris D'elia weighing in on whether or not its time for the sports world to accept the health benefits the drug can offer.

Check it out -- Common's not the type of guy to diss anyone -- but he makes it clear -- HGH just takes all the wonder and fun -- out of professional sports.

Hope no MLB Hall of Fame voters see this ... for some guys' sake.

Roy Halladay I NEVER Cheated ... Roger Clemens Can't Say That

1/7/2016 12:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_Roy-Halladay_Roger-Clemens-blue-jays-gettRoy Halladay is firing back at his hero-turned-nemesis, Roger Clemens ... telling TMZ Sports he wasn't a cheater, and Clemens is just trying to deflect.

The former Blue Jays teammates started warring because Halladay tweeted "No Clemens no Bonds" -- due to their alleged steroid use -- the night before the latest Hall of Fame inductees were announced.

Clemens responded by accusing Halladay of "using amphetamines" when they were in Toronto. Roy flatly denies it, and points out Roger is the only person to ever accuse him of using illegal drugs. 

“I grew up a huge Clemens fan. Getting to play with him, he became a role model. When I heard that he had cheated, it was like finding out Santa Claus wasn’t real all over again to me.”

As for Clemens attacking him, Halladay says, "I let my reputation and the truth speak for itself. It’s the greatest feeling to say you did it the right way.”

MLB Great David Wells Aroldis Chapman's Off-Field Issues Don't Matter ... Dude Can Pitch!!!

12/30/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1229-david-wells-aroldis-chapman-getty-01Former Yankees pitcher David Wells has no problem with his ex-team trading for the troubled Aroldis Chapman ... saying his off-the-field issues DON'T MATTER ... cause the dude can flat out pitch.

Chapman is currently under investigation by the MLB for allegedly choking his girlfriend making some wonder why the Yanks would deal for him now ... Wells ain't one of them.

"In all honesty I don't give a crap what he's done off-the-field. As long as he shows up to practice, plays hard and produces ... I'll take him."

Wells knows the Yankee organization -- having won a World Series with the Bronx Bombers in '98 -- and says this is far from the first time they've taken a chance on a player ... but it always works out.

"They always get guys that are a little crazy or have stuff going on off-the-field. But despite all the off-the-field stuff the teams that had those players ended up getting it done."

This.Is.Awesome ...

White Sox star Alexei Ramirez was torn on what color he wanted his 2016 F-TYPE Jaguar to be ... so he dropped $25k so he wouldn't have to decide ... 'cause now the car freakin' CHANGES COLORS.

We spoke to customizing god Alex Vega from The Auto Firm who tells us the whip was painted by graffiti artist Rene Turrek using thermochromic paint ... meaning when the Jaguar is cold ... it's black ... but when it warms up it morphs into a red, white, and blue masterpiece.  

Final price tag for the paint job? $25k!!

Alexei's ride is a work of art ... literally ... it's destined to be part of Miami's Art Basel show this December and is a joint project with Warren Henry Automotive Group.
