EXCLUSIVE

Here's the summary of this video -- Busta Rhymes LOVES Derrick Rose. He LOVES Carmelo Anthony

Porzingis?? Not so much. 

Busta is a huuuuge NY Knicks fan -- and says the combination of D-Rose and 'Melo is a major step in the right direction for his beloved squad. 

But when we brought the other star on the team -- Kristaps Porzingis -- Mr. Rhymes didn't seem too enthused about the Latvian sensation. 

"Carmelo and Derrick Rose ... and I'll vouch for that. I ain't vouching for nothing else."

Check out the clip -- Busta isn't ready to predict a championship yet ... but he loves where the team is headed.

The victim is Salvator Bimbo -- a Golden State Warriors fan who traveled from L.A. to see the game with his brother. 

Bimbo's father says a fight broke out at the game and a rival fan grabbed Salvator by the legs and pushed him over a railing

"My son’s cheekbone is smashed, his nose, his upper-eye, his head, his brain,” Salvator's father told KRON4.com

"He’s leaking from his ears blood. Not very good. He’s a beautiful young man. Did not deserve this.”

Salvator's family started a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs. They're also begging anyone with information about the suspects to come forward.

Nick Young Gets Short End of Stick In Iggy Breakup

6/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-nick-young-iggy-azalea-engagement-ring-02Iggy Azalea drives a hard bargain ... she's also now driving a 1962 Impala that Nick Young has given her as a parting gift.

We've learned that Iggy and Nick struck a deal ... he gets the engagement ring back and she gets the car she had given him for Xmas. 

Here's the breakdown ... the ring is 10.43 carats, and reportedly valued at half a mil.  

As for the whip ... a '62 Impala is a classic ... a cherry one can go for as much as $100k. 

It sounds like Nick made off like a bandit, but here's the twist. In California, and most states, an engagement ring is a gift in contemplation of marriage and if the nuptials never happen, the ring -- by law -- goes back to him.

As for the Impala, it was not tied to the marriage -- it was a Christmas gift -- so he did not have to give it back.   

Now you know, Nick ... for next time.

But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS."
