Breaking News

011917_westbrook_primaryRussell Westbrook was PISSED at the Golden State Warriors after Wednesday night's game -- vowing revenge on Zaza and apparently telling teammates to stay away from "bitch ass" Kevin Durant.

The game wasn't exactly the friendliest -- with Zaza Pachulia knocking Westbrook to the ground at one point and standing over him in a menacing way.

After the game, Russell went off to reporters saying, "I'm gonna get his ass back. Straight up."

He added, "I don't know when it's gonna be. But I don't play that game."

There's more ... now video has surfaced from the moments the game ended appearing to show Russell telling teammates to not talk to a certain "bitch ass."

According to multiple reports, the "bitch ass" in question is KD, though it's impossible to tell from the clip alone.

Interesting note ... Westbrook says he and Durant are NOT on speaking terms.

Blake Griffin To Appear In 'White Men Can't Jump' Reboot ... Producer Hints

EXCLUSIVE

Blake Griffin isn't just producing the "White Men Can't Jump" reboot, there's also a "high" chance he'll appear in it ... so says the guy writing the flick, Kenya Barris.

Kenya is a BIG DEAL in Hollywood -- he didn't just create "Black-ish" but also co-created "America's Next Top Model."

Kenya tells TMZ Sports he's got a great working relationship with Blake -- who's been dabbling in Hollywood when he's not killing it on the court. In fact, he credits Griffin for getting the project off the ground in the first place.

Kenya says he'd love to have the ORIGINAL guys -- Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson -- appear in the flick, but wants to make sure the movie feels different from the 1992 classic.

And the biggest difference? Kenya says white guys CAN jump now ... and are crushing dunk contests ... and that'll be a factor in the movie.

Lamar Odom Apologizes to Khloe for Drug Benders ... Vows to Get Her Back

Breaking News

Lamar Odom says he's grateful to Khloe Kardashian for staying by his side through his drug addiction and recovery ... and he wants her back.

Odom opened up about his battle with drugs on "The Doctors" -- and after completing a 30 day stint in rehab, he says one thing is perfectly clear ... "I want my wife back."

"Khloe is important to me," Lamar said ... "She's been through all of this with me and she stood right by my side so I just wanna repay her."

The issue, of course, is that Khloe not only filed for divorce ... and got it finalized ... she's already moved on to another NBA star, Tristan Thompson.

Still, Odom says he has a message for Khloe and the other family members he cares about.

"I just want to tell them I'm sorry for all that wasted time and wasted energy ... that in my addiction I didn't know who I was ... so I couldn't take care of myself. I damn sure couldn't take care of anybody else."

0117-steph-curry-shoes-in-game-getty-02Yes he can. 

Steph Curry paid tribute to his favorite president Monday night ... rockin' a special pair of Obama-themed Curry 3 sneakers to play the Cavs ... complete with #44's signature on the bottom! 

Steph and Barack have been tight for years -- and the Golden State Warriors star felt MLK Day was the perfect occasion to honor the first African-American POTUS. 

The shoes are dope -- red, white and blue in color with the presidential seal and #44 on the tongue ... along with the words, "Back2Back."

It seems to be a reference to the 2 terms B.O. served as Commander-In-Chief. 

Curry also tweeted about the kicks, "Honoring our President Barack Obama today on court! He embodies the inspiration, faith & hope Dr. King stood for! We R Forever Grateful! #44."

Gilbert Arenas Sues Laura Govan Your Lawyer Brought Up Old STD Stuff Again!

1/11/2017 6:05 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0111_gilbert_arenas_laura_govan_tmzGilbert Arenas is gunning for his ex-wife in court for repeating an STD claim about him that already cost her $110k ... TMZ has learned.

The ex-NBA star filed a defamation lawsuit against Laura Govan, as well as her attorney, Maya Shulman, over a December blog post about the longstanding war between the exes. In the post, Shulman said Laura was "stating a fact" when she accused Gilbert of giving her an STD.

As we reported, Gilbert won a hefty defamation judgement against Laura over that very allegation. In the new suit, he says Laura and her attorney clearly didn't learn their lesson -- and the December comment constitutes another instance of smearing his good name.

He says Shulman dug her own grave when she issued a retraction -- in the comments section of the blog -- admitting she doesn't "know any 'fact' that supports" Laura's STD claims. Gilbert says it proves she knowingly made a false statement.

He adds the retraction didn't come until 2 weeks later, and was NOT prominent on the site. He's suing both women for damages.

We reached out to Shulman, but haven't heard back.

Allen Iverson Michael Jordan Is Too Old ... For 3-On-3 League

EXCLUSIVE

Michael Jordan is too old to compete in Ice Cube's new 3-on-3 league for retired NBA players ... so says Allen Iverson, who tells TMZ Sports MJ's teeth are a little too long to still get it in on the court.

We got Iverson out in NYC at the official news conference for the BIG3 summer league (AI's gonna be playing and coaching) and wanted to know if we could look forward to Michael Jordan showing up.

Why ask Iverson? Allen made his NBA bones against MJ back in '97 crossing over His Airness in a moment most saw as Iverson's arrival, and the beginning of Jordan's departure.

Iverson says Jordan won't get his shot at revenge ...  because at 53 he thinks Father Time is playing lockdown defense on MJ.

Thank you, Iverson ... if Michael wasn't thinking about playing before ... we GUARANTEE he is now.

There will be no Kenyon Martin/George Karl peace summit ... the ex-NBA star says the guy is a "clown" and his explanation he gave for the hurtful things he said in his book is BS. 

Kenyon was out in NYC hyping up BIG3 when we asked for his thoughts on Karl. He told TMZ Sports he regretted the way he spoke about Kenyon's father situation in his new book. 

It's clear Martin isn't even close to forgiving Karl and has absolutely no desire to work things out with his former coach.
