Spud Webb Dominates Blackjack Tourney ... Donates $5k to Charity

7/12/2018 12:00 PM PDT
Breaking News

Spud Webb wiped the casino floor with a bunch of sports stars in a blackjack tourney Wednesday night -- but the best part ... all of his winnings are going to charity. 

The ex-NBA star took on guys like Clinton Portis, Santana Moss, Ron Harper and Dr. J at the grand opening of the Live! Casino and Hotel in Maryland. 

Webb was the last (and shortest) man standing when all the cards fell ... winning the $5,000 grand prize, which he donated to the Boys & Girls Club. 

The whole thing was pretty cool ... and Dr. J even roasted his pal, Ron Harper, with a funny golf story. 

Also ... and this is important (looking at you, Charles Oakley) ... no one was arrested for trying to change their bet after losing a hand. 

Baker Mayfield Hilariously Shades Ex-OU Teammates In Madden Rating Beef

Breaking News

Baker Mayfield's former Oklahoma wideouts ain't gonna like this ... the new Browns QB is taking pop shots at ALL of them ... saying he can catch better than any of his ex-Sooner teammates!!

Baker was asked what he thought his Madden 19 rating should be ... and he had HUGE issues with his 38 catch rating, saying, "I can catch better than all my receivers at Oklahoma."

He didn't just stop there ...

"Now [in Cleveland] I have some better ones."

FYI ... Baker did snag a touchdown pass in the Rose Bowl in January ... but his tight end Mark Andrews was a third-round pick and his top wideout, Marquise Brown, is a projected 2019 first-rounder!!

Seems Mayfield was just kidding around ... otherwise -- we can't wait to hear the responses from Lincoln Riley's squad.

Warner Bros. Sued Your 'Westworld' Game's a Rip-Off!!!

Warner Bros. got in bed with a tech company that jacked codes in order to fast-track and produce its "Westworld" mobile app ... so claims another company in a new lawsuit.

The gaming company, Bethesda Softworks, is suing the media giant and Behaviour Interactive and, in the suit, says Behaviour stole its designs, artwork and codes ... and used them in the "Westworld" game.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Bethesda says it hired Behaviour first, in 2014, to work on its popular mobile app game, "Fallout Shelter." Later, after "Westworld" premiered in 2016 ... Behaviour went on to create the "Westworld" game for Warner Bros.

Bethesda's issue, according to the suit, is that Behaviour used its "Fallout Shelter" coding for the "Westworld" game. And, Bethesda believes there's a smoking gun -- the same bugs that appeared in an earlier version of 'Fallout' also showed up in the "Westworld" game.

Bethesda is suing to get the game shut down and to get a slice of the profits. We've reached out to Warner Bros. and Behaviour ... so far, no word back.

TMZ Sports spoke with the King of the Youth at the Fortnite Pro-Am in L.A. on Tuesday ... and naturally, we had to ask which spitter was best at the uber-famous battle royale game.

While Lil Boat didn't know who should be deemed the best, he DID know Drizzy's far from earning the title ... and has some words for the dude's game.

Paul George Chad Ochocinco Ain't The FIFA King ... 'He Can't Beat Me!'

EXCLUSIVE

Chad Ochocinco is more FIFA Prince than FIFA King ... 'cause Paul George OWNS the ex-NFL superstar in the video game -- so says the Thunder stud himself.

Chad -- who's dubbed himself the "FIFA King" many times over the years -- has been obsessed with the soccer game ... and is a legend in the gaming community for showing up to random people's houses to pick up the sticks.

But PG-13 says the ex-NFL star is all talk ... and he NEVER wins when the two play.

"There's one person that can't beat me ... Ochocinco," Paul told TMZ Sports at the Fortnite Pro-Am on Wednesday.

It's huge if true ... 'cause just the other day Chad said he was in the FIFA lab for EIGHT STRAIGHT HOURS.

So ... forget the Fortnite tourneys -- let's see THIS matchup ASAP!!

Fortnite God 'Ninja' Pro Gamers Can Pull Chicks ... Just Like NBA Stars!

6/13/2018 1:49 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

You don't gotta be an NBA star to pull world-class chicks -- because pro gamers are doing pretty damn well these days ... this according to Fortnite god Ninja.

With gaming events like Fortnite and League of Legends selling out stadiums -- yes, STADIUMS -- pro gamers are making more cash and are becoming more famous than ever. 

So, when we saw Ninja at the Fortnite Pro-Am at the E3 convention in L.A., we asked how he felt about that old stereotype that gamers are just nerds who live in their parents' basement. 

Bottom line ... if you're still thinking that way, you're living in the stone age.

"I think that if they want to, [pro gamers] can have relationships, find relationships from their popularity just like professional basketball players can go out and if he's not married ... probably find someone."

He's right. Case in point -- FaZe Censor ... a pro gamer who's dating SMOKING HOT WEATHER GIRL YANET GARCIA!!!

There's more ... Ninja also says there was a celebrity at the Pro-Am who's got real skills on the sticks. And after some sleuthing, we found out the guy he's talking about is Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen

So, if the whole NFL thing doesn't work out, sounds like the pro-gamer life is a pretty sweet gig!!!

Fun Fact: Ninja and his celeb teammate, Marshmello, ended up winning the $1 MILLION top prize at the Pro-Am.
