I Gave My Sick Ride A Sicker Makeover
... For $20,000
9/30/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Carlos Boozer might be new to tinseltown, but it seems he already knows the golden rule of Hollywood ... your ride MUST be fly.
We spoke with Alex Vega, owner of The Auto Firm in Miami who tells us Boozer dropped over a whopping $20k to pimp out his 2014 S550 Benz ... and TMZ Sports has the exclusive pics and vids of the finished product.
Why so pricey? Carlos completely gutted the car inside and out, replacing the factory rims, seats and wheels with Avorza brand products which Vega says is "The Gucci of the car world."
Boozer himself tells us that although he has a fleet of whips, the tricked out Benz which also sports his custom emblem all over it, is currently his favorite way to floss down the highway.
"I got a lot of cars, Range Rovers, Ghosts, Jeeps, BMW's but nothing like this ... especially in the interior. Alex sat me down and brought my vision to reality."
Vision ... only in the NBA does it cost the same as college tuition.
Ex-NBA Star Antoine Walker
'I'm Not Embarrassed'
About Blowing $110 Mil
9/28/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-NBA superstar Antoine Walker says he's finally gotten over the embarrassment of blowing his $110 million fortune ... telling TMZ Sports he's embracing the role of "cautionary tale" for future NBA stars.
Walker -- who played in the NBA for 13 years -- was a laughing stock after filing for bankruptcy in 2010. He was so broke, he sold off the 2006 NBA Championship ring he won with the Miami Heat 'cause he needed the money.
But now, after finally getting his finances in order -- Walker says he's "more confident" about sharing his story ... so that other pro athletes don't make the same mistakes he did.
"I got robbed twice (at gunpoint) and my home was burglarized in 1999 ... as a result of having lots of money and some bad people around me," Walker says.
The 38-year-old says he's written a book about his financial debacle -- and also signed off on a documentary about his life called, "Gone In An Instant" -- because he believes that telling his story is something he "needed to do."
"If I can help bring down the number of athletes and entertainers who go broke ... then I feel I'm doing something to help the cause."

Drake was leaving the L.A. premiere of LeBron's new TV show "Survivor's Remorse" (Bron's one of the producers) ... when we asked if he'd ever team up with James, who recently released his very first rap single.
Drizzy didn't exactly say "no" ... and seemed pretty open to bringing James onto a track.
BTW -- it seems LeBron is really taking this Hollywood thing seriously ... the guy rocked a TURTLENECK under his suit Tuesday night ... despite the fact it was 70 DEGREES IN L.A.!!!

The ex-girlfriend of L.A. Lakers player Jordan Hill has dropped her lawsuit against the 27-year-old -- after claiming he beat the crap out of her back in 2012 -- and all signs point to a settlement ... TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke the story ... Hill was charged with felony assault -- and ultimately pled no contest -- after his ex Darlene Luna claimed he punched and choked her during an argument in their Houston apartment back in Feb. '12.
Hill got a one-year deferred sentence and a $500 fine in exchange for his 'no contest' plea -- but Luna lawyered up with Gloria Allred and sought big money in a civil suit.
Now, we've learned Luna has officially DROPPED her lawsuit -- with prejudice -- which means she can never refile against Hill for the incident ever again ... usually a telltale sign of a settlement.
We reached out to Allred and asked about a possible settlement -- to which she replied, "The matter has been amicably resolved."
We reached out to Hill's lawyers for comment -- so far, no word back.

9/22/2014 10:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dwyane Wade is hoping to murder the shoe game ... by putting out a new pair of sneakers covered in fake blood splatter -- and he's calling 'em "The Dexters."
Wade has a shoe deal with a Chinese apparel company called Li Ning -- and it's latest release is clearly inspired by the gory "Showtime" series which followed a lovable serial killer played by Michael C. Hall.
D-Wade is clearly hoping his Dexters generate the same kinda buzz other shoes inspired by Hollywood have enjoyed -- like the McFlys or the Freddys ... clearly inspired by "Nightmare on Elm Street."
No word on when Wade's shoes are expected to drop.
