1/6/2016 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Celebrity hair guru Jonathan Antin thinks LeBron James should look to Brian Urlacher for hairspiration ... saying Urlacher fixed his folicaly challenged head ... and LBJ can do the same.

We got Jonathan in the middle of a deluge in L.A. (still with perfect locks of course) and asked about Urlacher's miraculous change ... his brand new (surgically implanted) head of hair.

The convo eventually turned to King James ... and whether or not LeBron should try the same process on his thinning crown.

Check out the clip -- Jonathan makes an impassioned plea to LeBron to stop the fast break on his head ... and coming from a hair expert ... it's pretty powerful.

Peep the transformation below ... and be inspired.

1/6/2016 6:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather has the belt, but DJ Khaled's got Snapchat on lock -- question is ... which one's a bigger a draw at Staples Center? We got the answer Tuesday night.

We got Floyd and Khaled as they walked into the Lakers-Warriors game, and the video's interesting. Of course, Mayweather's the champ ... tons of fans worldwide, but fact is social media trumps all.

It started with our video outside, and continued inside, where Khaled was king all night with fans swarming him everywhere. Let's face it -- everyone wants to get the key!

0106-dj-khaled-getty-01It's cool though -- Khaled and Floyd eventually kicked it, and yes ... Khaled did give him a key.

0105-lambo-gloria-instagramThe last time we saw the whole fam together ... they were chillin' in Hawaii.

They must've been daydreaming about that vacay, 'cause high temps in Aspen over the weekend were hovering around 20 -- which is actually balmy by Cleveland standards.

Jordan Clarkson Double Clutches on Crediting Kanye For Lakers Winning Streak

1/4/2016 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ever since Kanye West shouted out Swaggy P for wearing Yeezys ... the Lakers haven't lost a game, but Jordan Clarkson's not ready to call him a good luck charm just yet.

We got Clarkson leaving Boosty Bellows and proposed a theory -- that Kanye's new song is providing the mojo for the Lake show's 3 game winning streak. Ye drops his teammate's name in the track about Adidas crushing Nike:

“Now we hottest in the streets, it ain't no discussion
James Harden, Swaggy P runnin' up the budget”

Check out the clip, Jordan mimicked a few of the the lyrics, but NEVER really agreed with our theory. One possible reason ... JC's a Nike guy!

0104-sub-jordan-clarkson-getty-01At least Swaggy responded to Kanye ... on IG.

James is being pressured to sit out NBA games until the Department of Justice investigates the shooting of Tamir Rice ... a 12-year-old Cleveland boy killed by police.

The hashtag #NoJusticeNoLeBron has caught fire on Twitter ... and when we got Jay arriving at LAX we asked him if it was fair that LBJ was getting all the heat.
