Lamar Odom I'm Here to Help People ... With My Weed

4/21/2018 1:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom's new lease on life since coming out of a coma has made him want to improve other people's lives too ... enter his cannabis company.

We got the former NBA Champion at Five Star Juice in Torrance, CA Friday and talked to him about the release of his brand of marijuana products, called Rich Soil, which he believes can help people with their ailments ... like it's helped him.

Odom says his goal to get people "healthy high," saying ... "I want to get people better, bro. If I can get 'em high, I can get 'em better."

He tells us he's been working on the cannabis idea for a year, and doesn't give a damn about haters who think he shouldn't be in this business ... because he believes he's living proof the stuff works.

Lamar also touches on making a basketball comeback, which he told us about a couple days ago too.

Unclear how snacking on Starburst fits into his plan.

Glen 'Big Baby' Davis Named Suspect In Felony Assault

4/21/2018 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA star Glen "Big Baby" Davis has been officially named a suspect in an assault with a deadly weapon case that left a man seriously injured ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We're told cops believe Davis got into a physical altercation with a man outside of a West Hollywood nightclub on April 8 -- and ultimately slammed the man down on the concrete. Davis allegedly fled the scene before cops arrived. 

Sources say the victim was hospitalized with multiple broken bones and a broken tooth and he was on a ventilator for a day.  

Davis was previously a "person of interest" in the attack but now we're told investigators have spoken with several witnesses who identified Davis as the aggressor. 

We're told cops will present the case to the District Attorney in the hopes of getting felony charges filed against Davis. 

We've reached out to Davis multiple times for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Lakers' Julius Randle I Care About My L.A. Future ... Not LeBron's!

4/20/2018 3:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Julius Randle says you can jam it with all the questions about LeBron James on the Lakers ... because there's one Lakers future he's much more interested in ... HIS OWN.

Randle is coming off a career season with the Purple & Gold, but being that he's a restricted free agent, there's no guarantee he'll be back in tinsel town next year.

Might be why, when we got JR out in Beverly Hills and tried to ask about the chances LeBron James or Kawhi Leonard might join the squad next year, Randle couldn't make himself give a damn.

"I got to figure out my situation first."

Makes sense, kinda pointless to recruit LeBron if you're gonna be on Utah, Brooklyn, or Portland ... all places rumored to be landing spots for Randle.

Real question is, what does Julius already know that we don't?

Austin Rivers Blake Griffin Is Happy in Detroit ... 'Fresh Start for Him'

4/20/2018 9:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Clippers shipped Blake Griffin's ass out to Detroit, but Blake's getting the last laugh … 'cause he's 100% "happy" in the Motor City -- so says Austin Rivers.

"It's a fresh start for him. He's been here for a long time," Rivers -- Blake's longtime Clippers teammate -- told us at LAX.

Plus, Austin says Blake still gets to kick it in L.A. during the offseason ... so he's got all summer to mingle with his celeb homies (wassup, Kendall?). 

We also asked Rivers if his squad would bounce back next season ... and he told us it'll be playoff time in Clip City as long as they do 1 thing.

Clippers Patrick Beverley Getting Kawhi? Like 'Hitting The Lottery!'

4/20/2018 7:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Kawhi Leonard is really unhappy on the Spurs and wants out, Clippers star Patrick Beverley says they'd LOVE him in L.A., telling TMZ Sports getting Kawhi would be like "Hitting the lottery."

We got Beverley in Beverly Hills -- it was his first ever TMZ shot (precious moments) -- and asked him about the rumors that Leonard is done in San Antonio and L.A. could be a landing spot.

"We'd hit the lottery with that, but those decisions aren't up to me!"

PB made it clear, he likes his current team if healthy, but still wasn't shy about gushing at the prospect of adding a 2-time All-Star and former NBA Finals MVP to the squad.

Beverley, DeAndre Jordan AND Kawhi Leonard? Ewwwwwwwwwwww, NASTY.

Tristan Thompson Jets Outta Cleveland ... So Many Reasons to Smile

4/19/2018 4:54 PM PDT

Tristan Thomson's temporarily out of the dog house, physically anyway, and he couldn't look happier. 

Tristan was grinning from ear-to-ear as he boarded the Cleveland Cavaliers team plane Thursday, heading to Indiana for Game 3 of their playoff series with the Pacers.

He could be smiling 'cause he's a new dad, or because the Cavs tied the series 1-1 last night. Or maybe he's just happy to get outta Dodge after getting busted cheating.

Considering he hasn't been playing much, we'll go with door #3. As we've reported, his relationship with Khloe Kardashian is in ruins at the moment, and after her family left town there's no buffer between them.

Benched or not ... Indianapolis has to look good to Tristan.

Lonzo Ball’s pregnant GF is starting to show in a BIG way -- but that ain't stoppin' her from slaying the Gram!

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Lonzo's high school sweatheart, Denise Garcia, got a Ball in the oven late last year, and they're expecting a baby girl in July.

Now, with Denise in Month 6 of her pregnancy, her body is still bangin' ... and she's showing it off in a tiny string bikini. 

Lonzo has said he's excited for the kid -- and even got some advice from his own dad, LaVar, on their reality show, "Ball In the Family."

"He's a Ball -- he's gonna be a great dad," LaVar said ... noting that little girls are WAY harder to raise than little boys.

Lonzo said he hopes his kid will love him as much as he loves his own parents. 

Congrats, Zo -- on the future kid ... but mostly on the current baby mama.   

LeBron Back Off NBA Reporter ... Question on Pop's Wife Was Cleared!!

4/19/2018 6:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

LeBron James wants people to "get off [Allie LaForce's] back" -- saying she did NOT blindside him on air with a question about the death of Gregg Popovich's wife.

LaForce was catching hell on social media Wednesday night from people who thought it was WAY out of line to ask LeBron about Erin Popovich in the moments after the Cavs playoff game.

But, LeBron went to bat for the reporter -- making a video explaining the entire situation and essentially saying LaForce couldn't have been more professional or sensitive to the situation.   

"A lot of people feel that I was blindsided. That is absolutely false."

"Allie LaForce told me that she was gonna ask the question and if it was OK. And once I started talking about it, once I was on air ... that was just my emotions coming straight from my heart."

"So get off her back, man -- she's very professional and she does a great job."

EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom says he's busting his ass in the gym to get back on the court -- telling TMZ Sports he wants to strike a deal to play pro basketball overseas. 

The 38-year-old was leaving Gold's Gym in Glendale -- where we saw him puttin' in work earlier this week -- and he told us it's all part of his comeback plan. 

"I'm just working out trying to work my way back overseas," Odom told us. 

Odom says it doesn't matter where he signs -- though he's eyeing Italy -- and says he can't wait to prove the doubters wrong. 

As for his thoughts on his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, and all the drama she's going through (baby, cheating baby daddy, etc.) ... that's when Lamar shut down. He's clearly not ready to talk about that yet. 

Stormi Webster My Parents Had a Date Night!!!

4/19/2018 6:28 AM PDT

Stormi Webster was flying solo Wednesday night so her parents could hit the town in Houston.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott sat on the hardwood as they watched Travis' home team destroy the Minnesota Timberwolves.

It seems the fam is making Houston their second home ... earlier this month Travis, Kylie and Stormi flew to Texas so his family could meet their newest 2-month-old member.

Unclear who's babysitting, but we're guessing it's someone from Travis' brood. Kylie's fam -- sans Khloe -- is back in the land they call Calabasas.

Erin died Wednesday, but the cause of death is unknown at this time. The news comes as a shock to players and fans -- although it's being reported she'd been ill for an extended period ... Coach Popovich hadn't said anything publicly.

Spurs GM R.C. Buford says, "We mourn the loss of Erin ... She was a strong, wonderful, kind, intelligent woman who provided love, support and humor to all of us."

The Spurs are scheduled to take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their playoff series Thursday night in San Antonio. Kevin Durant was told the sad news at practice and was at a loss for words.

Erin was 67.
