Romeo Miller is trying to put an end to Dame Lillard's search for a major rap label ... by publicly offering the NBA star a record deal on his and his dad, Master P's, record label, No Limit Forever.
We broke the story ... Lillard's being heavily courted (see what we did there) by huge rap labels looking to turn his heavily praised rhyming skills into some moola ... and Dame is weighing his options.
Enter Romeo -- president of No Limit Forever Records -- who told us he's more than willing to give Dame a deal ... and maybe even let him be his own boss.
Ball's in your court Dame (we did it again) all ya gotta do is say ... UGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH.
There might be one person more excited about Kobe training Shaq's kid than Shaq's kid ... Rick Fox ... who says the Mamba Obi-Wanning Diesel's offspring truly "warms his heart."
We broke the story ... Kobe has offered to personally mentor Shareef O'Neal -- a high school superstar who's already received scholarship offers from some pretty huge schools. Shareef told us he's pumped about it.
And so is Rick ... who was a part of those legendary Lakers teams with Shaq and Kobe, and knows firsthand how bad things got between the two of them.
But that's why Rick says it's so special to see Kobe reaching out -- saying Mamba's gesture shows how much respect the two really have for each other.
Outta the way Madonna, Eminem, Marilyn Monroe and Sisqo ... a new HUGE man has joined the ranks of the blond ... former Laker star Andrew Bynum who's bleached his dome to Nordic levels.
Bynum debuted the new 'do on social media ... posing for a pic in a Dave & Buster's with his head looking as white as Steve Nash.
No word on why this happened ... but if you know Bynum -- who's thrilled us with Jheri Curls, Afros and the now unforgettable Ike Turner 'do (check 'em all out in the gallery below) -- nothing hair related is out of the question.
DeMar DeRozan's days in the six might be numbered ... that's according to his best friend and former teammate, Romeo Miller, who says he knows where DeRozan is headed ... and he strongly suggests it's L.A.
We got Romeo out at The Grove and asked him about DeMar ... who will be one of the most coveted free agents of the NBA off-season.
Romeo would be the guy to ask ... he and DeRozan have been best friends for years, growing up together and playing college ball at USC.
Check out the clip ... it's been reported DeMar wants to bolt the north for L.A. and Romeo adds to that fire ... hinting STRONGLY that he knows the Lakers are the right spot for his best pal.
BTW ... DeMar & the Raptors have a HUGE playoff game in Cleveland Wednesday night ... enjoy it while you can, Toronto.
Derek Fisher and his ex-wife, Candace, have decided to destroy the embryos they had frozen during their marriage as part of their divorce settlement ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ Sports.
It's a decision more and more couples are faced with during divorce -- and has become part of a larger ethical debate about when life actually begins. In fact, Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiance, Nick Loeb, are still locked in a legal war over the fate of their frozen embryos.
But, according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Derek and Candace are on the same page -- and signed documents agreeing to destroy the embryos that were on ice at a California reproductive center.
There's more ... the court docs also show Candace made out like a bandit in terms of spousal support -- with Derek agreeing to shell out $109,000 A MONTH ($1.3 MILLION per year).
Fisher also agreed to pay $15k per month in child support for their 9-year-old twin sons.
The documents also show the judge made their divorce official on May 24th ... ending a famously nasty breakup that went down 1 month after their 10th anniversary.
Dikembe Mutombo says reports that he personally gave Bismack Biyombo his blessing to use the signature finger wag is COMPLETELY FALSE ... telling TMZ Sports, "Him and I need to talk."
Biyombo has used the finger wag a couple times during the NBA playoffs -- most recently busting it out Monday night after a block during the Raptors victory over the Cleveland Cavs.
Mutombo says he's seen reports that he had a conversation with Bismack in which he formally bestowed his finger-wagging blessing ... but insists the reports are simply not true.
"I don’t know when did that conversation took place," Mutombo said ... "Him and I need to talk this summer.”
"He claim in the newspaper and everywhere he said I gave it to him. I said, Did I gave him? Was it family? Cosign? But you know what, he’s a young man, man, I let him enjoy the fame. He’s making me famous!”
“I will see him in the Congo this summer so him and I will talk back home with nobody around us.”
Ex-NBA player Bo Kimble is pleading with Chris Bosh ... RETIRE IMMEDIATELY ... saying he doesn't want to see Bosh die on the court like his friend and college teammate Hank Gathers.
The Heat shut Bosh down on February 9th when the clotting issues that ended his '14-'15 season returned ... this time showing up in his calf.
Bosh is reportedly unhappy with the decision ... and feels he's healthy enough to resume his playing career.
Kimble -- who was present when Hank Gathers died during a college game in 1990 -- thinks returning to the league is a bad idea for Bosh.
"There are so many other things he could do with his life. Hank Gathers had the same thing, Hank could have been a comedian, and actor or did speaking engagements. It’s not worth the risk. I would just say absolutely not, don’t do it."
Gathers was aware of his heart ailment and decided to keep playing anyway ... and Bo says Chris has the chance to make a decision Gathers couldn't.
"If Hank had the ability to do it again he wouldn't have paid the ultimate price ... I am sure [Bosh] has children and they are going to need their father around as much as possible."
We also spoke to Hank's brother Derrick who echoed Kimble's sentiments.
"To this day I am just getting over the loss of my brother ... just fall back and retire."
FYI, We reached out to Dr. Oz to explain Bosh's condition and why it's so serious -- check out the video.
When in L.A. ... you get in the movies -- just like Clippers star Austin Rivers, who locked up a pretty sweet cameo in the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' movie!
We spoke with Austin -- who's still recovering from that gnarly eye injury he suffered earlier in the NBA playoff -- and he told us he was super stoked to get a role in a scene shot at Madison Square Garden.
So, what's next ... "SPACE JAM 2" -- that is, if producers hit him up for a role.
