Jahlil Okafor

Viral Sex Story Is B.S.

'Considering Legal Action'

6/29/2015 11:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-jahlil-okafor-GETTY-01NBA rookie Jahlil Okafor claims he's been targeted by an Internet "troll" -- who is spreading disgusting lies about a sexual encounter that NEVER happened ... and now he's taking action to shut her down. 

Social media exploded over the past 24 hours after someone claiming to be a woman named "Chanel" went to Twitter and posted a story about hooking up with Okafor ... complete with embarrassing details involving his junk and bedroom performance. 

But Okafor's camp tells TMZ Sports ... the story is "absolutely false" ... adding, Jahlil has never met the person and has no idea who she is. 

We're told Team Okafor has already contacted Twitter to get "Chanel" to take down the tweets. Okafor's team was told the tweets fall under Twitter's abuse policy ... especially posts where she threatens to leak nude pics ... and if she doesn't delete them, her account will be suspended. 

Okafor's camp says they have already kicked the matter over to their legal counsel and are considering their legal options moving forward. 

Kourtney Kardashian

Sorry Scottie Pippen ...

I Don't Wanna Party with You

6/29/2015 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Poor Scottie Pippen ... all he wanted to do was hit the clubs with his friend Kourtney Kardashian this weekend -- instead, she shot him down. 

Kourtney and Scottie were each having dinner with friends at Craig's in West Hollywood (Scottie was with Ron Harper) ... but on the way out, Pippen decided he wanted to crash the party scene. 

So, he goes to Kourtney's SUV -- convinces her to roll down the window and asks KK if she wanted to hit up 1 OAK on the Sunset Strip ... after all, Kourtney is friends with Scottie's wife, Larsa! 

But alas, Pippen got rejected ... because Kourtney ... well, she had other plans. Super boring other plans.

Carmelo Anthony

'I Really Love' Porzingis

... Meeting with Him Today

6/29/2015 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Don't give up on Knicks draft pick Kristaps Porzingis just yet ... Carmelo Anthony isn't -- telling TMZ Sports, "I really love him."

Melo was leaving Madeo in L.A. on a double date with his wife La La AnthonySeattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and his GF Ciara ... when we asked about C.A.'s newest teammate from Latvia. 

"I really love him. I feel him. I'm gonna get with him tomorrow," Melo says ... adding that he's planning to squeeze in a workout with Porzingis. 

It's big news considering there were reports that Anthony was pissed at the Knicks for using the 4th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft on Kristaps -- a player some experts see as a "project" who could take several years to develop. 

For now, seems Anthony's a fan ... at least, that's what he wants us to think. 

NBA Rookies

Hit Pre-Draft Party With

FREE DENTAL WORK!?

6/26/2015 10:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0625_sports_dentist_launchGift bags full of swag are nice, but NBA draftees Cameron Payne and Satnam Singh Bhamara hit up a party this week that actually gave out something useful ... free dental work!

Payne (who was 14th pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder) and Bhamara (who made history by being the first Indian born player to be drafted into the league) hit up an art show in Manhattan on Wednesday night where all the proceeds went to provide dental care for those in need.

It was your typical art show -- about 150 guests, invite only, Moet champagne passed around -- except for the dental chair set up by Dr. Lee Gause -- the dentist who hooks up Floyd Mayweather with his insane mouthpieces -- to provide guests with free cleanings for the guests. 

The ballers -- including new Portland Trailblazer Mason Plumlee -- got an added bonus ... a complimentary, customized mouth piece, which usually runs around $300. 

FYI -- the art show was a hit, raising about $30,000.

This is one of the coolest videos we've ever seen ... Delon Wright overcome with emotion the second he was selected during the NBA Draft last night ... while his family goes wild!!!! 

Wright -- along with his close friends, parents and brother (fellow NBA star) Dorell Wright -- took over Hyde on the Sunset Strip to watch the Draft together. 

The moment commissioner Adam Silver announces Delon's name as the 20th overall pick to the Toronto Raptors ... well, it's just awesome. 

Congrats! 

Diddy's Son

Humiliated by Coach

Over Courtside All-Star Seats

6/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0625_diddy_josh_ben_stiller_gettyThe coach who fought Diddy this week ... brutally shamed Diddy's son by using a paparazzi pic to drive home a point -- that he thinks Justin Combs is a spoiled rich kid.

Sources connected to UCLA's football program tell TMZ Sports ... the humiliating incident went down in February. Coach Sal Alosi had several players in the the gym for a training sesh, which Justin missed because he was at the NBA All-Star game.

We're told Alosi openly mocked Justin by putting a pic of him at the game -- next to Diddy and Ben Stiller ... in all the gym monitors. We're told Alosi told players ... "While you guys are training, this guy is sitting courtside with his dad." The pic remained up for 24 hours.

As we've reported ... Diddy sources say Alosi ran a campaign of psychological warfare against Combs for the past 3 years.

Our UCLA sources say over the years, Alosi has told Justin things like -- "You're only here because of your dad," and ... "You never belonged here," and ... "You should just go work for your dad."

We reached out to Alosi, through UCLA ... so far, no response.

breaking news

0625-the-fat-jewish-blake-griffin-INSTAGRAM-01Blake Griffin's penis is like a "Pringles can made of flesh" ... so says a dude who would know, The Fat Jewish ... who got up close and personal with Blake's dong during a game of mini-hoops. 

The Instagram star says the two hooked up for an intense game of 1-on-1 ... and as TFJ put it, "The next thing you know he was doing a monster jam on me and his package was literally in my face."

Mr. Jewish added, "Also, for anyone wondering, yes I could feel the outline of his d*ck, dude has a Pringles can made of flesh in his shorts."

And now you know. 

Satnam Singh

7'2" NBA Prospect ...

Guess My Shoe Size!

6/25/2015 6:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Big day for a big man ... with 7'2" Satnam Singh landing in New York City for tonight's NBA Draft -- where he could be the first Indian-born player in the league. 

The big question ... how big are your shoes!?! 

We spoke with 19-year-old Singh, as he towered over the normies, and he told us his feet are so MASSIVE, he has a "very hard" time finding shoes that actually fit.  

Good news for Singh ... if he gets drafted tonight, he won't have to worry about paying for kicks for a while. 

Congrats! 

Phil Jackson

Preparing for the NBA Draft ...

at a Lady Gaga Concert?

6/23/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The top ranked prospect on Phil Jackson's board stands just 5'1" tall and has never played a lick of professional basketball -- and she goes by the name of Lady Gaga

While other NBA execs are hammering the phones, scouring through pages of scouting reports and reviewing game tape, the Zen Master spent his Monday night at Radio City Music Hall seeing Gaga perform with Tony Bennett

Unless Gaga and Tony did a special performance with Kristaps Porzingis, we're guessing this outing didn't help him prepare for Thursday's draft one bit.

Good luck, Knicks fans ... you're gonna need it.

Trevor Ariza

Can I Beat Michael Jordan?

Hell Yes.

6/22/2015 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Houston Rockets star Trevor Ariza might've just committed basketball blasphemy ... 'cause he told TMZ Sports he thinks he'd actually beat 52-year-old Michael Jordan in a 1-on-1 game.

Trevor was in L.A. when we asked the 29-year-old who'd win in a mano a mano face-off between him and #23 ... the topic du jour amongst NBA players this summer. 

"I better be able to beat him 1-on-1 right now."

Check out the clip -- Ariza's tune is slightly different from some of the other ballers we've spoken to on the subject ... namely Pistons big man Andre Drummond, who said Jordan could still get it done.

Be warned Trevor ... Jordan NEVER forgets a challenge ... remember that Hall Of Fame speech?

Magic Johnson

EXCLUSIVE

He was the target of some of Donald Sterling's most racist and disgusting comments -- but Magic Johnson says he's forgiven the former Clippers owner ... telling TMZ Sports, "I don't keep grudges."

Not only did Sterling single Johnson out in his racist rant to V. Stiviano and order her not to be seen with Magic or any black people at Clipper games ... but he went on to say he's a terrible role model because he has HIV.

Johnson handled the whole thing with crazy amounts of class at the time -- but now that a year has passed ... we wanted to know how he feels about Sterling now .

Check out the clip ... it's another example of why Magic is one of the most greatest of all time.
