EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom stands to make a boatload of dough ... now that he's cutting ties with his Florida crib.

The former NBA star bought the Pinecrest pad back in 2003 for $2.975 million for his stint with the Miami Heat ... but he's finally ready to say deuces to the crib and possibly make a sweet profit cause he's asking for $5.2 mil!!!

LO's been renting out the 8,557 square foot house for a few years now.

The 6 bedroom, 7.5 bathroom compound sits inside an exclusive gated community, and it has all the bells and whistles -- from a grand foyer entrance and media room to a pool, spa, tennis court and, of course, a basketball court.

Bosco Vega of Douglas Elliman is repping Lamar in the sale and says working with him has been an amazing experience.

EXCLUSIVE

The secret Kobe Bryant pickup games at UCLA were even CRAZIER than we thought -- with a teenage Mamba killing legit NBA stars and future Hall of Famers. 

But there's one guy who DIDN'T get his ass busted by 17-year-old Kobe ... ex-NBA journeyman Ricky Davis!

After Jaleel White told us about the private pick up games at UCLA back in the '90s, we reached out to ex-Bruins star Jelani McCoy to see if Urkel was tellin' the truth. 

Turns out, the stories are INSANE -- with Bryant holding his own with guys like Penny Hardaway, Shawn Kemp and more. 

For the record, Davis was a freak athlete and had a long career in the NBA -- but Jelani says his best days were going head-to-head with Bryant. 

You gotta watch. Great stuff.

Justin Bieber's dance moves are about to go viral -- dude was GIGGIN' hard to Kendrick Lamar's new single at an NBA playoff game ... awkwardness be damned.

The Biebs had box seats for Game 5 of the Clippers/Jazz series in L.A. Tuesday night, and was inspired to get up and dance when he heard Kendrick's song, "HUMBLE."

Some ticket holders got an up close and personal show of JB doing his thing ... especially the guy next to him. Too close, maybe.

Kendrick was in the house, and had the honor of sitting courtside. Key word ... sitting. No one knows his music better than K-Dot.

Breaking News

You'd think Kyrie Irving would get a pardon in Ohio over his whole "The Earth is flat" comments -- but, nah ... that ain't happening.

The latest person to roast the Cleveland Cavs star over his insanely misguided comments is Ohio governor John Kasich ... who happens to be a pretty big Kyrie fan!

But even Kasich couldn't help himself from taking a shot at the NBA superstar over the weekend. 

At least he went softer than notorious smart guy Neil deGrasse Tyson, who said all flat-Earthers should be launched into space!

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA star Daniel Gibson says his music career is BLASTING OFF ... telling TMZ Sports he's been working with some HUGE artists lately, like Chris Brown & Wiz Khalifa.

That's a shame ... dude's got some bars, hear 'em below.

EXCLUSIVE

Derek Fisher says Carmelo Anthony needs to be focused on family ... not basketball ... and promises he'll reach out to his former player and help him cope with the separation from his superstar wife, La La.

Derek coached Melo on the Knicks a few years back -- and when we got him out in Calabasas with his GF, Gloria Govan, we had to ask if he'd he heard the news about Melo's marriage.

Interesting question for Fisher (Govan LITERALLY sips tea when we ask) ... but he goes full-on friend, saying Anthony should tune out everything except his family. He also promises to call Melo to offer his support.

Nothing to see here, Matt Barnes.

James Worthy Fires Back At Kevin Durant ... After KD Trashed Him

4/22/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Worthy ain't backing down from Kevin Durant -- saying the NBA star was not only WRONG when he trashed him on a recent podcast, but claims KD's underhanded allegations could seriously damage his career.

Worthy is upset about a story Durant told on "The Bill Simmons Podcast" -- in which KD says he met Worthy last year and they had a very cool conversation about Durant leaving OKC for Golden State. 

But Kevin says he learned a short time later that Worthy trashed him about the move during a TV interview. Durant felt betrayed and called James "shady" and "corny."

But Worthy says Durant's version of the story is simply untrue -- and he was so upset, he tracked down the TV interview in question to prove he's not a two-faced liar.

Worthy says he reached out to the Golden State Warriors in an effort to clear things up with Durant and had hoped KD would set the record straight on a podcast this week, but that didn't happen.

Worthy says he's REALLY upset at KD's agent, Rich Kleiman, for encouraging the NBA star to "go negative."

Still, James says Durant is one of his favorite players and he hopes they can squash the beef. 

Stay tuned ...
