Kenny Smith Taylor Swift Needs A New Man ... Kyrie Irving!!!

9/11/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Beware, Kyrie Irving ... Kenny Smith thinks a horrible breakup song should be written about you ... 'cause the ex-NBA star says Irving should be the next man up ... to date Taylor Swift.

Smith was out in L.A. when we wanted to know if it's time for the newly single T-Sweezy to give the NBA world a chance ... since it doesn't seem to be working with the actors and singers.

Kenny says YES ... and he has just the guy ... Cleveland Cavs star Kyrie Irving, who he says would be right up Swift's alley 'cause of where he's from ... and what he likes.

We're not sure if it would actually work, but one thing's for sure ... she'd be perfect for a party on Kyrie's yacht.

Exclusive Details

0909-iman-mug

Cleveland Cavs star Iman Shumpert was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana back in August ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to the police report, Shumpert was pulled over outside of Atlanta on August 10th around 11:37 PM for a lane change violation and because his taillights weren't on in his rented Audi A3. 

During the stop, the officer says Shumpert reeked of weed -- and his eyes were bloodshot. 

Shumpert told the cop he had just come from his "homegirl's house" and was going to pick up his father from the airport. 

The cop administered a field sobriety test and determined Shumpert was high. Shumpert also admitted he had smoked weed before leaving his friend's house. 

Cops searched the car and found a mason jar with marijuana. 

Cops wanted to perform a blood test on Shumpert but he refused -- claiming, "people would recognize him and it would cause a scene."

Shumpert was handcuffed and arrested for DUI marijuana and possession of weed (less than an ounce). He was also cited for failure to maintain his lane. 

The Cavs issued a statement saying they have discussed the situation with Iman and "will monitor the progression of the pending case."

"A court date has not been set at this point, and neither Iman or the team will have any additional comments while the matter progresses through the legal process."

9/8/2016 4:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Fox has a message for anyone still hating on D'Angelo Russell for the Nick Young video -- GET OVER IT ALREADY!!! 

We got Fox out at LAX and asked the former Lakers star what he thought about Russell still getting grief over the infamous Nick Young video ... the one that exposed his teammate cheating on Iggy Azalea.

Long story short ... everyone makes mistakes and it's officially time to give the 20-year-old a pass.

Nick seems to agree ... recently explaining, "I can't be mad forever."  

LeBron James MVP Level Turn Up ... At Drake Concert

9/8/2016 8:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James REALLY likes Drake ... and to prove it here's video of the best athlete in the world LOSING HIS FACE Wednesday night with Chris Bosh at Drake's Summer Sixteen concert in L.A. 

We've seen Drake and LeBron actually share the stage when Drake performed in Ohio ... but this night LBJ was in full fan mode ... and you gotta see the progression of his fanhood in this video.

He starts off pretty mellow while Drake is performing "Summer Sixteen" but by the time Drizzy does "Child's Play," LeBron simply cannot control his groove anymore ... and goes full fan dance mode.

Check out the clip ... and remember if you're going to dance, do it like no one is watching ... even if EVERYONE is.

Nick Young I Hope Iggy Marries French!!!

9/8/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Young is not only over Iggy Azalea, he hopes she ties the knot with her new BF, French Montana ... then again he could be dripping in sarcasm. 

We got Nick out and about in L.A. Wednesday and he was all smiles when our photog asked about Iggy's rebound man. Nick, who knows a thing or 2 about rebounds, sounded anxious for Iggy and French to seal the deal.

Iggy repeatedly put Nick on blast for allegedly cheating on her, but at least on the surface it's all rolled off his back.

Ann Coulter Kaepernick's Another John Rocker ... Should Be Suspended Too

9/7/2016 8:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ann Coulter thinks Colin Kaepernick's protest is as offensive as John Rocker's legendary racist rant ... saying both men used their 1st Amendment rights ... but only one was suspended.

If you remember ... Rocker -- a stud reliever for the Braves at the time -- got hit with a 14 game suspension back in 2000 after he launched into a racist and homophobic tirade aimed at New Yorkers.

We got Coulter out in New York and she was pipin' mad that Kaepernick hasn't been suspended for his free speech ... saying if it was okay to slap Rocker with a ban for being offensive ... why not Colin?

Bonus shade? Ann says she's totally on board with Donald Trump's view on Colin's stance ... recommending Kaep get the hell out of America on the first thing smoking if he doesn't like it here.

Check out the clip -- then look up Rocker's comments and see if you agree.

EXCLUSIVE

Lakers star D'Angelo Russell was on the OTHER side of an embarrassing video this past weekend ... getting straight DENIED from a super hot Hollywood party spot.

D'Angelo and a couple other NBAers (tried to) hit up Warwick nightclub Saturday night ... but as you can see in our video ... the young Lakers ace didn't make it inside.

Sources that witnessed Russell get Mutombo'd say the reason why he didn't make it inside is 'cause he's 20 ... and Warwick is a 21 and up joint.

FYI -- D'Angelo turns 21 in February ... and he's already a FREAKIN' MILLIONAIRE ... so yeah, no tears, bro.

EXCLUSIVE

Shaunie O'Neal is giving her ex-husband, Shaq, a little automotive advice ... pump your brakes, big fella ... saying guaranteeing both their kids make the NBA is too much pressure to put on the boys.

The Diesel made the big boast to us last week ... saying 16-year-old HS hoops superstar Shareef O'Neal AND his little brother 13-year-old Shaqir were LOCKS to hoop in the NBA one day.

We got Shaunie O'Neal out at LAX recently and asked her thoughts on The Diesel's big prediction ...  and she sung a little different tune than Shaq did.  

Check out Shaunie go all mama on our camera guy ... saying both kids know their dad is a big talker, and Shaqir is thinking about a much more important thing than b-ball right now ... girls.

Still though, we gotta say ... we like the boys' chances ... if they're into the whole millionaire thing, that is.

We got rapper/singer Taz James outside the Mondrian Hotel, and while he respects KD's homage ... Taz points out KD never made a call. As he put it, "You gotta get permission big boy!"

Seems like he's mostly joking, but the not-so-funny part is Taz keeps referring to his friend, "Brandon" ... aka Lil B... and his curse.

EXCLUSIVE

0901-jeff-adrien-GETTY-01Dear people,

Don't take cars from hotel valets that aren't yours or you'll be punished ... just like ex-NBA player Jeff Adrien.

We broke the story, the 30-year-old former Timberwolves player essentially stole a Mercedes from a West Hollywood valet stand back in December and took it on a 6 hour joyride.

The REAL owner says Adrien damaged the car and police were called. He was charged with felony grand theft auto. Adrien claimed it was all one big misunderstanding. 

Now, we've learned Adrien struck a plea deal with prosecutors, pleading no contest to misdemeanor unauthorized use of a vehicle -- and got 25 days community labor.

The end.

EXCLUSIVE

Penny Hardaway just dropped $500 so he could hit the links FRESH ... in one-of-a-kind golf shoes patterned after his classic Fighter Jet Foamposites from back in the '90s.

TMZ Sports spoke with Roly Padron from Nomad Customs, who says Penny wanted a special look for the Black Enterprise Golf Challenge this Labor Day weekend ... so he decided to freak his sneaks.

Roly hand painted a pair of Nike Air Zoom 90 golf shoes -- a 10 hour job -- to give Penny the same camouflage look from his classic shoe that drives sneakerheads wild.

The blue in the shoe is also significant ... a nod to Penny's time with the Orlando Magic ... just tossed in there for a little nostalgia ... and, of course, Hardaway's signature logo is on the back.

Whole job cost about $500 bucks ... but you know what they say ... look good, play good.
