We're told they're not buying a house together ... he's looking to rent a place in the Hollywood Hills or the Valley where he and Khloe can stay when they're in the city. She has a house in Calabasas -- Bieber's old house -- about an hour's drive from Hollywood..

We're told Tristan's budget is around $60k a month, and he wants to rent through September.  

Khloe's said she'd marry Tristan if he proposed ... maybe this is the first step.

EXCLUSIVE

NBA champ John Salley ain't buying into the rumors that LeBron James is unhappy with the Cavs ... but if the King decides to bail on Cleveland again, he's got the perfect destination in mind -- L.A.!!

We spoke with the ex-Laker about the news of LBJ's frustration with the Cavs' lack of off-season moves ... and, although Salley doesn't believe it, he still makes a pitch to get Bron to join the Purple & Gold in 2018.

It's been rumored that King James would end up in La La Land, especially since he owns a home in Brentwood ... and Salley says it would be an "unbelievable plan."

Salley is clearly pumped about the idea ... saying having LBJ and Lonzo Ball on the same team would be "Showtime Lakers all over again."

EXCLUSIVE

Good news Laker fans ... a new era of Showtime could be right around the corner, that's according to Magic Johnson's wife, Cookie, who says Lonzo Ball has what it takes to be the next Magic.

Lonzo's been KILLIN' it in the Summer League, serving notice to the entire basketball world that he's really, really, good.

Question is, just how good can he be?

Cookie thinks he can be as good as her All-Universe husband, and told us as much when we got her out in Beverly Hills.

We'd say it's unfair to put such Hall of Fame expectations on the kid, but for some reason we think he's used to it.

Draymond Green is livin' it up like the world champion he is ... raging in Ibiza with international soccer superstar Neymar!!

Day Day and his boys -- including Dolphins DE Andre Branch -- have been in Spain this past week, and it's only right he hit up the Barcelona stud to show him around all the hot spots like Ushuaïa at Ibiza Beach Hotel.

In case ya didn't know, Draymond and Neymar are bros ... and the soccer stud even hit up the NBA Finals to watch Green beat up on the Cavs.

The partyin' is fresh off reports that Neymar has accepted Paris Saint-Germain's world-record $257 million transfer fee ... although FC Barcelona's honchos claim their star is going nowhere.

It's interesting ... 'cause Draymond has been rumored to be a HUGE PSG fan and has even been spotted wearing the French club's jersey several times. Sooooo ... maybe doing some recruiting?

Regardless, looked like one hell of a time.

Flea Gushes Over Lonzo 'My Favorite Player On the Planet!'

7/17/2017 1:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rock legend Flea -- a die-hard Lakers fan -- says he sees unparalleled GREATNESS in Lonzo Ball ... and guarantees he'll win Rookie of the Year.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist is no bandwagoner -- the guy is a hardcore hoops fan. He regularly attends high school games to scout out the top rising stars in the state. He's also had Lakers season tix for decades.

To say he's impressed with Lonzo's talent is a gross understatement -- you gotta watch the clip, he thinks Ball is already better than the legendary Jason Kidd.

But how does he feel about LaVar Ball? Nothing but respect -- he even hails the Big Baller as a pioneer in the business of professional sports.

Terrell Owens Hey Ice Cube ... I WANNA BE IN THE BIG 3

7/15/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Listen up Ice Cube, one of the greatest athletes of all time is about to ask you for a gig ... Terrell Owens, who is publicly asking Cube for a shot at hoops glory in the BIG3 league.

It's no secret Owens is a baller, his exploits in different leagues and charity games are well documented on Youtube, but when we talked to him, he told us he wants to try it on the pro level.

"I tried to get into that league. I gotta get Ice Cube's number to get my name in the hat to get on one of those teams."

The rub? The BIG3 league has been billed as primarily for ex-NBA and other professional BASKETBALL players to try their hand at. T.O. of course starred in the NFL.

That didn't stop him from making an impassioned plea to try his hand alongside Allen Iverson, Rashad McCants, Rashard Lewis and Kwame Brown, and it's clear he's 100% serious.

Come on Ice Cube ... SOMEBODY has got to let this man in (shame on you Hall Of Fame).

Exclusive Details

Washington Wizards player Kelly Oubre, Jr. ain't throwin' any punches, but he's still going for a knockout ... getting a custom-made, 14k white gold grill with his "K.O." initials on it!!

TMZ Sports has learned ... KOJ decided to treat himself to the white and purple VS+ diamond piece ... and hit up jeweler IF & Co. about a month ago for the job.

We're told Oubre dropped $12,000 for the finished product ... which is pretty tame compared to what other athletes have paid for their blinged-out mouth pieces in the past.

Regardless, the grill looks fresh as hell. 

J.J. Watt Shades LaVar Ball Your ZO2 Shoes Suck!

7/14/2017 8:21 AM PDT

Another day, another enemy for LaVar Ball ... this time it's NFL superstar J.J. Watt who roasted Ball over the ZO2s ... saying they suck, are overpriced ... and most importantly, Watt's shoes are better.

Watt took to Twitter to announce the release of his $99 Reebok training shoe and took the time to call out Ball when he did it ... posting a not-so-subtle shot at the Big Baller Brand boss.

"400 dollars less than some shoes on the market and 100% more effective" ... "And I actually wear them."

LaVar and Lonzo's sneakers retail for $495.

Lonzo's been killin' it in the NBA Summer League ... but only since he stopped wearing the ZO2s ... and switched to Kobe's Nikes and Harden's Adidas kicks.

Shots fired.

Klay Thompson's Dad Carmelo On The Rockets? 'Serious Threat To Warriors'

7/14/2017 6:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Klay Thompson's dad, Mychal, says the Warriors better hope the Carmelo Anthony trade is dead, 'cause if the Rockets get Melo, they'll be a legit threat to dethrone his son's team.

Houston's already stacked with James Harden and CP3 ... so we asked Thompson -- a former NBA stud himself -- if acquiring Melo would make the Rockets the best team in the league.

"You add Carmelo Anthony to Chris Paul and James Harden, you gotta take them serious."

But is it enough to topple KD, Steph, Klay and Draymond?

We also talked to Mychal about Klay's epic dance moves in China ... guess where KK got those moves.

Chris Bosh Mulling NBA Return ... My Health Is Great!

7/13/2017 12:07 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

What's next for Chris Bosh? "Basketball and stuff."

That's what he told TMZ Sports outside Coral Tree Cafe in L.A. moments ago -- advising his fans not to close the book on his NBA career just yet.

"Health is great, feeling great," Bosh said ... noting that he's focusing on being a dad while he figures out his next basketball move.

Bosh was waived by the Miami Heat earlier this month after failing a physical -- due a blood clot condition that has plagued him since the 2014-15 season.

But the 33-year-old isn't ruling out a return to hoops ... and couldn't have been cooler when we asked him about it.

DeAndre Jordan Lamar Odom's My Guy One Of the Best Teammates Ever

7/13/2017 7:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DeAndre Jordan is riding hard for Lamar Odom -- not only reconnecting with the guy, but giving him one of the best compliments you can get in team sports. 

Earlier this week, DJ and Odom hit the L.A. nightclub scene -- lookin' like old times when they played on the Clippers together. 

So, when DJ was leaving the ESPYs on Wednesday night, we asked how Lamar was doing after all he's gone through over the last few years. 

"That's my guy," DeAndre said ... "He's one of the best teammates I ever had."

Seems just about everyone in the NBA feels that way about Lamar -- from Kobe to Metta -- and they've all offered to help Lamar get his life back together.

BG and his girlfriend/baby mama, Brynn Cameron, hit up Georgio Baldi with Dekker and his fiancee Olivia Harlan early Tuesday evening before attending a Players' Tribune party.

Dekker was drafted by the Houston Rockets but became a Clipper as part of the Chris Paul deal. 

Welcome to L.A.

LaMelo Ball Trashes Vegas House Intense Water Balloon Fight

Breaking News

Lonzo Ball's 15-year-old brother, LaMelo, unleashed a sneak water balloon attack on two girls in bikinis -- INSIDE the Vegas home where he's staying -- while wearing a shirt with his own face on it.  

Yep. 

It all went down Sunday night -- and yeah, Lonzo was inside the home as the water fight broke out. It was a mess. Water everywhere. Ketchup. Craziness. 

Unclear if Lonzo is footing the bill for the pad (probably, since he's the only one getting a paycheck) -- but he didn't seem to care as his 15-year-old lil bro destroyed the house.

There was one moment where LaMelo grabbed a loaded pillowcase and swung it at one of the women -- but smartly put it down and splashed her with water instead. Careful, dude.

Of course, Lonzo's in town with the Lakers for the NBA Summer League. All things considered, this is a pretty tame night ... as far as Vegas goes.
