NBA's Allen Crabbe DESTROYED By Heckler ... For Odell Beckham Hairstyle

11/15/2016 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Would-be hecklers and game-disrupters listen up ... THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE.

The victim is Portland Trailblazers star Allen Crabbe ... and here's video of him getting absolutely PUNISHED by a heckler during a game last week against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Subject of the heckle? Crabbe's Odell Beckham Jr.- inspired hairstyle ... and the smack talk is sooo good that at one point even Crabbe has to laugh.

BTW, Crabbe (who has a $75 million contract) had just 6 points in the game so ... mission accomplished, brother.

Shaq Crushes Wedding Horah ... Just Jewin' It, Baby!

11/15/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

You're about to see a 7'1", 350 pound man summon the powers of Mount Sinai and put them into his feet ... here's video of Shaquille O'Neal dominating a bunch of tiny humans ... at the Horah.

It went down at the Salter/Markowitz wedding in Miami this weekend ... where Shaq was a guest of Jamie Salter's, the father of the groom and his partner at Authentic Brands Group.

We're told the entire party was poppin' until around 2:30 AM (oy vey) and at one point Shaq took to the dance floor -- but instead of his tried-and-true pop-locking routine, he got cultural ... and Horah'd it up.

BTW -- we're also told efforts were actually made to lift Shaq up in a chair (part of the dance) but they were predictably unsuccessful.

Which means we'll never know the answer to the question -- how many Jews does it take to lift Shaquille O'Neal?

How do you salute Craig Sager? GET UGLY, BABY!!! 

The Memphis Grizzlies did just that -- sporting a bunch of disgustingly awesome Sager-inspired shirts Friday to pay tribute to the legendary courtside reporter ... who's in a fierce battle with cancer.

The shirts are being sold by the SagerStrong Foundation -- and part of the money raised goes to leukemia patients and their families. 

Cool to see the Grizzlies not only showing love to Sager ... but helping a good cause in the process.

Tracy McGrady Could I Strike Out Tebow? HELL YEAH!!!!

11/11/2016 7:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tracy McGrady is 100% sure he'd Nolan Ryan Tim Tebow ... as in STRIKE HIM THE HELL OUT if the two men ever faced off on the baseball diamond.

McGrady had a short stint as a pitcher with the Sugar Land Skeeters a couple years back ... so when we got him out in L.A. we asked if he thought he could get 3 strikes by that other new baseball star.

He didn't even hesitate ... the guy is confident.

BTW ... McGrady had a 6.75 ERA in 4 appearances for the Skeeters, and Tebow is currently batting .156 in Arizona fall league. So, not exactly Clemens vs. Bonds here ... but still fun to think about.

NBA's Adam Silver 'Roger Goodell's Got a Tough Job'

EXCLUSIVE

Ray Rice. Adrian Peterson. DeflateGate. CTE. TV ratings ... Roger Goodell has a tough job -- and Adam Silver knows it. 

The NBA commish was leaving a charity event for the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation in NYC Thursday night when we asked who has the harder job ... him or Goodell?

Silver's job hasn't exactly been a cakewalk ... Donald Sterling, the Rajon Rondo homophobia scandal, ATL Hawks racism scandal, Blake Griffin fight. 

Okay, maybe Goodell does have the most challenging gig ... and even Silver acknowledged it. 

That being said, Goodell reportedly made $32 MILLION last season ... so, worth it? 

Hell yeah. 

Scottie & Larsa Pippen Desperate to Unload Crib ... $600k Discount Anyone?!

11/11/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1108-scottie-larsa-tmzScottie and Larsa Pippen ripped a page straight out of Crazy Eddie's handbook -- majorly SLASHING the price on their Florida mansion ... and now it's PRICED TO SELL AT $10.9 MIL!

With a pending divorce and raging prenup battle ... last thing the estranged couple needs is a prolonged sale of their Fort Lauderdale pad. It had been sitting on the market with an $11.5 million tag for over a year ... but with no buyer in sight they dropped the price to $10.9 mil.

That's a $600k drop for the mathematically challenged.

The 13,500 square foot crib is built for the ultimate baller. Parking spot for your yacht? Check. Space for your car collection? Done. Plus the must-haves -- 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a basketball court, an elevator and a Playboy-esque pool with its own sweet slide.

Divorce ... not just a lawyer's paradise.

1108-paul-george-tmzPaul George sent a bouquet of flowers to the woman he accidentally hit with a basketball ... but that didn't stop the NBA from slapping him with a $15,000 fine.

George was ejected during the 3rd quarter of Saturday's Pacers-Bulls game after he got frustrated by a call and kicked the basketball into the stands ... hitting a female fan.

1108-paul-george-flowers-facebookP.G. sent an apology note and flowers to the fan ... saying, "I'm sorry for the ball hitting you at the game on Saturday! It was not intentional. I hope you are feeling okay."

Apology or not, the NBA just hit George with a $15k fine for "kicking the ball into the spectator stands."

Matt Barnes Blasts New Orleans Pelicans How Dare You Cut Lance Stephenson?!

Breaking News

1107-matt-barnes-lance-stephonson-tmz-getty-01Matt Barnes is PISSED at the New Orleans Pelicans for cutting his boy Lance Stephenson -- saying Lance busted his ass for the team, only to get waived after he got hurt. 

Stephenson suffered a groin injury and will require surgery that will reportedly keep him out for 6 to 10 weeks. So, New Orleans waived him and signed Archie Goodwin to take his roster spot. 

The move infuriated Barnes.  

"So my man Lance Stephenson busts his ass for the Pelicans, gets hurt, requires surgery & what does he get for his hard work??? WAIVED SMFH," the Sacramento Kings star wrote. 

"Something fans have to understand is y'all get mad when players leave during free agency or hold out for money.. We have to do what's best for US, we have a small window to make as much money as we can."

"Remember this is a BUSINESS when you can no longer serve your purpose these teams cut you trade you or bury you on the bench!"

"Case in point, Lance gets hurt playing & needs surgery now, so instead of supporting him & helping him get healthy they cut him! #Bulls**t #HoldYaHeadLilBro."

MWP agrees ... and goes on to say he'd like to join young successful NBA coaches like Billy Donovan and Brad Stevens.

"It's fun. I think these coaches are having a great time, doing something they love to do, and I want to be in that same position someday."

Larsa Pippen made a tearful 911 call -- just 3 days after she placed a very similar call to police -- and said Scottie had "gotten crazy again."

The NBA legend's wife called Fort Lauderdale PD on Oct. 4, and this time she was more defiant and insisted police come to their home because he was breaking things.

As we reported ... her first 911 call was made as Scottie stood next to Larsa, telling her to cancel the call for help. The second time around, Larsa is by herself, crying and providing details about the alleged incident.

NBA's Chandler Parsons Single & Ready to Mingle After Split from Victoria's Secret Model

EXCLUSIVE

1101-chandler-parsons-toni-garrn-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-02Sad news ... NBA star Chandler Parsons and his ex-Victoria's Secret model girlfriend, Toni Garrn, are officially over ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The two had been dating since last summer -- months after she split with Leonardo DiCaprio -- and they seemed to be getting pretty serious as of late.

But a source close to the former couple tells us the two have "amicably split" -- and despite the fact they've scrubbed each other from their Instagram accounts, they're still on good terms.

So, what went wrong? We're told work got in the way. They're both focusing on their careers -- Toni's doing the modeling thing and Chandler's working on getting back on the court with the Memphis Grizzlies after knee surgery back in March. 

Don't worry, he's a rich NBA star (signed a $94 MILLION contract back in July) and she's a super hot model -- they'll be fine.

10/31/2016 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Cleveland Cavaliers had their annual Halloween party Sunday night ... and it was nothing short of epic ... with several HUGE talking points that need to be addressed:

  -- Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson playing tonsil hockey.

  -- LeBron's costume and impression as Jerome from the TV show "Martin."

  -- Kyrie Irving danced the ENTIRE night dressed as Red Ranger (a tribute to comedian Jet Wavy).

  -- The Cavs trolled the Golden State Warriors with a "3-1 Lead" decoration.

That being said, it looked like an insane time.

NBA's Joe Johnson Being Evicted In Miami ... You Burned Us On Rent!

10/31/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1028-joe-johnson-TMZ-01NBA star Joe Johnson -- who's made nearly $200 MILLION in the NBA -- is being evicted from his lavish Miami condo ... after building owners claim he stiffed them on rent for months! 

TMZ Sports has obtained court docs filed in Miami in which the owners of the Marinablue Condos (this place has insane ocean views) -- claim Johnson leased a place in March 2016 back when he was playing for the Miami Heat.

1028-miami-condos-gilbert-arenas-01According to the docs, Johnson agreed to pay $5,500 per month in rent -- but when the bills showed up, Johnson never forked over the dough.

In fact, the owners claim he paid $0 in rent from April to August. For the record, Johnson signed a new deal with the Jazz in July.

The owners are demanding $39,500 in back rent plus damages and fees -- and they want a judge to sign off on the eviction so they can take back possession of the property.

Denise White, Johnson's rep, issued us the following statement. 

"This situation is being handled and Joe will absolutely take care of any financial responsibility he has. There was some confusion as to who was supposed to be paying this bill and the length of the actual rental but this matter is being  taken care of and we are working with the attorneys to get this matter closed."
