Dennis Rodman Uses Women's Restroom at Airport ... While Bumping Staind

6/23/2017 2:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

He's worn dresses ... maybe that's why Dennis Rodman felt so comfortable using the women's restroom at Long Beach airport Wednesday night.

A female witness tells us she noticed Dennis in the airport around 9 PM -- but couldn't believe it when she saw The Worm walk straight into the women's restroom while blasting Staind's "It's Been Awhile" on his mini-speaker.

We're told he was inside for about a minute -- and acted normal while a bunch of confused women looked on ... some doing double takes.

Ultimately, he left without issue and went on his merry way ... continuing to play that Staind song.

Detroit Pistons star Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been suspended 2 games without pay for his March drunk driving arrest ... the league announced Friday.

He'll serve the suspension at the beginning of the 2017-18 season.

KCP was initially pulled over for speeding in Auburn Hills on March 29 when cops claimed they could smell alcohol and noticed his eyes were glossy.

Police gave him a breathalyzer and he blew a .08, resulting in the arrest. KCP struck a deal with prosecutors in May in which he pled guilty to 2 lesser DUI-related charges. In exchange, he got 12 months probation.

Kwame Brown Warns NBA Draft Picks ... Beware the Gold Diggers!

6/23/2017 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kwame Brown knows all about the pressures that come with being a top NBA Draft pick -- he was #1 overall in 2001 -- and he's dishing out his best advice to Markelle Fultz and co. 

First things first, Brown says his #1 experience was different from everyone else -- because right after he was drafted by the Washington Wizards, Michael Jordan came back as a player ... and Brown says it got in the way of his development. 

"My situation was unique and it'll never happen again ... unless LeBron James owns a team and then he comes back and plays at 40."

He continued, "Elton Brand [and] a lot of guys that were #1, they were given the keys to a team and told 'em to drive ... I was never given the keys. I was given the [junker]."

Beyond that, Brown drops some pearls of wisdom for the new NBA rookies -- especially when it comes to protecting that wallet!

Ice Cube Billups Announcement Was Premature 'I Opened My Big Mouth'

EXCLUSIVE

Ice Cube is backpedaling on that whole Chauncey Billups to the Cavs thing -- saying CB is still with the BIG3 league because the NBA deal isn't officially done yet. 

"Right now he with us until I hear something different," Cube tells TMZ Sports ... "Yesterday I opened my big mouth and it wasn't done yet."

Of course, Cube is referring to Billups taking a job with the Cavs front office -- the two sides are reportedly very close to striking a deal. 

But until the pen hits the paper, Chauncey is still contracted to play/coach in Cube's BIG3 league -- leading the Killer 3's squad. 

Cube says if/when the deal goes through with the Cavs, he'll absolutely let CB out of his BIG3 contract because the league wants to serve as a pipeline to the NBA.
