Charles Barkley Gives Worst Possible Right Answer ... On 'Family Feud'

6/18/2018 6:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

If your fly was open at church, what would you use to cover it up?! 

Guarantee your answer is BETTER than the one Charles Barkley gave on "Celebrity Family Feud"!

Chuck -- along with his cohosts from "Inside the NBA" -- took on a team from Major League Baseball and things came to a head when Charles was on the hot seat. 

When Barkley blurted out his guess, EVERYONE gasped and Ernie Johnson even switched teams to get away from Chuck. 

And then, the most insane thing happened ... CHUCK'S ANSWER SHOWED UP ON THE BOARD!!!

Everyone on both teams -- Shaq, Kenny "The Jet" Smith, Kristen Ledlow, Johnny Damon and more -- couldn't believe it. 

Don't worry, Steve Harvey made sure to roast the hell out of Barkley anyway. And we're guessing the flock will keep an extra eye out for Charles next time he rolls into church.

EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Maxwell -- the only MLB player to kneel during the national anthem -- went off on cops during his Oct. 2017 arrest ... telling police he took a knee to protest "y'all motherf*ckers."

As we previously reported, Maxwell was arrested for aggravated assault at his AZ home after allegedly pulling a gun on a Postmates driver. 

When cops arrived, Maxwell -- not wearing a shirt -- began berating the police officers.

"Think I'm intimidated? Cool. Cool. I hope so. I’m not afraid of f*cking none of y’all n*ggas. I don’t give a f*ck."

He continued, "Guess what, f*cking half of America afraid of y’all motherf*ckers. Yeah, that’s the reason why I took a knee. F*cking anthem, dog."

"F*cking our country is afraid of the f*cking police. Wanna know why? Because the f*cking police does unjustice sh*t and gets f*cking paid leave for it."

Maxwell explained he's mixed race -- "My mom is white as sh*t. My dad is black as a motherf*cker."

Later in the video, Maxwell gets emotional as he tells cops he and his family received death threats for his national anthem protest. 

For their part, cops say Maxwell reeked of booze. He was transported to a nearby jail

As for the case, the aggravated assault charge was dropped ... and Maxwell pled guilty to disorderly conduct.

EXCLUSIVE

For the 2nd time in his life, ex-MLB star Milton Bradley has been convicted of domestic violence ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The 40-year-old former All-Star was initially charged with misdemeanor spousal battery stemming from a January incident at his L.A. home. He was facing up to a year in jail. 

His wife told responding officers Bradley roughed her up and fled the home by the time cops arrived.

He is also required to complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and pay various fines and fees. Bradley was also sentenced to 2 days in jail, but got credit for time served. 

As part of his probation, Bradley is also not allowed to own or possess a firearm. 

Years ago, Bradley spent 15 months behind bars after he was convicted of beating up his previous wife

MLB's Jake Lamb Loses His Mind Watching Little Bro Win

Breaking News

Arizona Diamondback Jake Lamb got HYPED this weekend ... watching his little bro advance to the College World Series -- and the awesome scene was caught on video.

Washington rallied to beat Cal State Fullerton in 10 innings Sunday night ... using a sacrifice fly to score the winning run -- and Lamb's reaction was priceless.

FYI -- Lamb -- a 3rd baseman on the D'Backs -- used to play for the Huskies ... and now his younger bro, Dylan, is a freshman reliever for the squad. All of that added up to Jake going ballistic when the winning run crossed home plate.

"My little brother achieved one of my childhood dreams tonight," Lamb wrote of the reaction. "I post this video because I’m at a loss for words. I love you man @dylanrlamb."

Washington's gotta win a few more games to be crowned champs ... but if they do -- we're hoping someone has a camera on Jake for it.

Braves Pitcher Anibal Sanchez Hotel Room Burglarized ... During Dodgers Game

6/10/2018 2:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Atlanta Braves pitcher Anibal Sanchez had his hotel room burglarized this weekend while he was on the mound against the Dodgers ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Sanchez's room was broken into Saturday night while the RHP pitched against the boys in blue as the Braves were in L.A. We're told Sanchez was staying at a hotel near DTLA, and that there doesn't appear any forced entry to his suite.

Sources say more than $100,000 in jewelry were stolen from Sanchez's room, which included 4 watches, among other items. Police are currently investigating the matter.

Definitely a bummer for Sanchez, considering he pitched well against the Dodgers and walked away with a victory for the Braves. He's also fairly new to the team ... not the greatest way to kick things off.

Suter is pretty great doing Jim Carrey's part in the 1994 flick ... especially since he was only FIVE when the movie came out!  

Lenny Dykstra Uber Driver In Trouble with Cops ... Over Ride with MLB Star

6/8/2018 6:24 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Lenny Dykstra claims he was essentially kidnapped by an erratic Uber driver -- and now, we've learned the driver's been hit with a criminal charge.   

The night in question (May 23) is the same evening Dykstra was arrested in NJ for allegedly threatening to shoot the driver when cops say they also found Dykstra in possession of weed, cocaine and ecstasy. 

The driver had claimed Lenny asked to change destinations in the middle of the ride and when the driver refused, Lenny flipped out and threatened to shoot him. 

But, Dykstra says that's B.S. -- admitting he did ask to change locations, but it was the DRIVER who flipped out ... locking the doors and driving 100 mph in the wrong direction. 

Dykstra says the driver eventually pulled up in front of a police station -- where Lenny claims the driver lied to cops about what really happened. 

Cops investigated and according to court documents, the driver has been hit with 1 count of false imprisonment. 

Lenny says he was afraid for his life and called 911 several times from the back seat. Lenny says when the driver realized he was talking with police, the driver freaked out even more. 

Dykstra's charges have not been dropped -- but now, it seems both the driver and the passenger could go down together in what may be considered as one of the most bizarre Uber rides ever. 

8:40AM PT  -- Dykstra and his attorney Matthew Blit held a news conference this morning in NYC .. where they described the incident. Lenny says he was kidnapped by the driver and was in fear for his life.

"I literally thought this guy was going to kill me."

Deion Sanders Warns MLB Draft Pick Don't EVER Play Football Again!

Breaking News

Deion Sanders has a question for the MLB first-round draft pick who's still going to play quarterback for Oklahoma this season ... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

The Oakland A's took Kyler Murray with the #9 pick in Monday's draft ... and despite that, and the roughly $5 MILLION contract that comes with that, Kyler says he still wants to play football at OU this season.

And Primetime Can. Not. Believe. It.

"Why are we even having this conversation?" Deion told 105.3 The Fan. "It don't even make sense to me."

"This kid, if he plays, and he should, is going to probably spend one year in the bushes -- in the minor league -- and then he's going to go to the pros. The big leagues."

"And then several years, four or five years after that, the kid's going to be making $200 million."

Prime made stacks playing football ... but he also had an impressive baseball career ... and clearly would have chosen the diamond full time if he weren't the greatest DB to ever play on the gridiron.

So ... bottom line, Kyler ... listen up!!

Johnny Damon Shades Red Sox 'I Root for New York!'

EXCLUSIVE

Clearly the beef ain't squashed between Red Sox owner John Henry and Johnny Damon ... 'cause the former outfielder tells us he's ROOTING FOR THE YANKEES in the renewed rivalry with Boston!!

It's an interesting stance considering Damon is a Red Sox legend -- a key part of the team that broke the curse and won the World Series in 2004. He later played for the Yanks. 

Now, with the two teams battling it out for 1st place ... Damon says he loves the renewed rivalry.

"They're bringing back the rivalry that we had in the early 2000s and it's going to be a fun year," Damon told us.

But when we asked Johnny who he's pulling for -- that's when it got interesting.

"I'll be rooting for New York."

Remember, Johnny went on "Celebrity Apprentice" a couple years ago and said he and John Henry weren't exactly on speaking terms after contract drama in 2005.

Damon's since told us that icy relationship has thawed ... but apparently not enough to keep Johnny from openly rooting for Boston's most-hated rival!!
