The biker was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. Millsap was not injured.

Cops reportedly blamed the biker for the collision and cited him for failure to maintain his lane.

Breaking News

Derrick Rose's lawyer says the media had a racist agenda against 3 black defendants in the civil rape case -- but says the mostly white jury was able to see the truth. 

The NBA star was all smiles on his way out of court -- and while he barely talked, his attorney, Mark Baute, played the role of mouthpiece and unloaded on reporters. 

"The media reporting was biased against the black men," Haute said ... "blatantly obvious."

"We're just very relieved that the system worked. We had  a jury of 7 white people and 1 hispanic who exonerated 3 black men. It was fantastic."

But get this ... before they left the courthouse, Rose and his team posed for pictures WITH JURORS!!!

1019-derrick-rose-attorney-jurors-01In fact, the two male jurors in the photo (taken by Deadspin's Diana Moskovitz) told the media they were not Rose fans before the trial ... but judging by the pic, they are now.

One last thing ... the judge actually CRACKED A JOKE with Rose before he left the courtroom -- telling the NBA star, "Best wishes ... except when the Knicks play the Lakers."

Doc Rivers I Love Chris Bosh ... But He Ain't Gonna be a Clipper

10/17/2016 2:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bad news for DeAndre Jordan ... looks like his boss ain't too keen on his plan to sign Chris Bosh to the Clippers. 

DJ had told us last week that he would sacrifice playing time to get the 11-time All-Star on the Clip squad -- so, when we saw Doc Rivers out this weekend we had to ask about it. 

FYI, the execs at the Miami Heat have said they're cutting ties with Bosh over his blood clot condition -- though Bosh says he's determined to continue his NBA career with another team. 

Unfortunately, Doc made it pretty clear Bosh ain't gonna land with the Clippers. 

BONUS -- Doc was having dinner with Larry David ... prettay, prettay, prettay cool.

Derrick Rose Rape Trial An NBA Star's Life is Rough, Man ... Pal & Co-Defendant Testifies

10/13/2016 2:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1013-derrick-rose-ryan-allen-getty-01Derrick Rose's friend took the stand and recounted details from the night of the alleged rape, and explained why Rose's memory of the incident wasn't as clear as his. 

Ryan Allen -- who's also a defendant in the case -- told the court graphic details about the night ... including the lighting in the bedroom, kissing the accuser, using lube and a condom and the accuser's pink vibrator. Allen testified the sex was consensual and that the accuser was completely sober.

Rose and Allen have been pals since childhood. The accuser claims they and Randall Hampton broke into her home and gang raped her

Allen testified he flushed his condom after the sex ... unlike Rose who said he took his with him when they left the apartment. The accuser's attorney asked Allen why he didn't do the same, and he said, "Derrick's condom is a little more desired than my condom."

Translation: Derrick's semen is way more desirable than Allen's. Only one is an NBA superstar.

When the accuser's attorney asked why Allen remembers the night more clearly than Rose ... he said, "People don't know how hard it is to be an NBA player. Derrick had a lot going on with family and basketball." He then bro'd out with Allen, saying ..."I appreciate you pooh."

Allen also testified the pink vibrator helped to jog his memory.

Here's some brutal honesty about the Philadelphia 76ers ... courtesy of 76ers superfan Kevin Hart.

For the record, Hart (who was at Caroline's On Broadway) says he LOOVES his home team -- but it's clear the injury to Ben Simmons combined with all the other issues (like the fact they went 10-72 last year) have shaken his confidence. 

Sorry, Philly ... 

LeBron James Trump's Comments Are 'Trash Talk' ... Not Locker Room Talk

10/12/2016 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

LeBron James is going hard after Donald Trump -- saying the GOP nominee is WAYYY OFF on "locker room talk" because "we don't disrespect women in no shape or fashion."

James just spoke with reporters at the Cleveland Cavaliers practice facility -- and responded to Trump's claim that his conversation with Billy Bush was just "locker room talk."

Clearly, LeBron has taken offense to the comments -- saying, "I got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter and those conversations just don't go on in our locker room."

"What goes on in our locker room is sporting events that happened the night before, about family, about strategies that we may have that night."

"But what that guy was saying, that's not ... I don't know what that is ... that's trash talk."

Derrick Rose NO MISTRIAL IN RAPE CASE ... Judge Rules

10/12/2016 8:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1012-derrick-rose-getty-02No mistrial in the Derrick Rose civil rape case ... the judge just ruled the case will move forward despite claims the accuser hid important text messages from the defense. 

As we previously reported, the judge scolded the accuser's legal team in court Tuesday for allegedly withholding texts that could've helped Derrick Rose's case.

The judge had previously said he didn't want to declare a mistrial because the case would likely be brought again in the middle of the NBA season and severely inconvenience him. 

But Rose's team did get a minor victory in court Wednesday.

Moments ago, the judge said the accuser's team didn't fully comply in her duty to provide evidence to the other side and will give Rose's team the opportunity to put the accuser back on the stand to grill her about the text messages in question.

10/12/2016 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NBA star Caron Butler has made it clear he'd LOVE for Michael B. Jordan to play him in the movie Mark Wahlberg is producing about his life. 

So, when we saw Michael B. out at Catch in West Hollywood Tuesday night ... we had to ask the guy -- would you do it???

Good news for Caron, he didn't exactly say no. 

Of course, Caron's life story is amazing -- he overcame a hard life as a drug dealing youth to make in the NBA. Wahlberg bought the rights to Caron's story back in March and now a movie is in the works. 

In fact, the last time we got Butler out he told us how things are going behind the scenes -- and why he wants Michael B. to play him on-screen
