John Wall

Kicked Off Plane In Vegas

... After Altercation

5/28/2015 11:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


NBA superstar John Wall was kicked off an American Airlines flight in Las Vegas this week ... after someone in his crew allegedly threatened another passenger ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the Washington Wizards star had boarded a flight headed to D.C. on May 26th -- but before the plane took off, his crew got into a verbal argument with someone else on the plane and a threat was allegedly made from someone in Wall's group. 

We're told someone from the flight crew called the Las Vegas Metro Police Department for help -- and cops boarded the plane to deal with the situation. 

The alleged victim told cops he did not want to press charges -- but the pilot of the plane decided he did NOT want Wall and his crew to remain on the flight ... so they were escorted off. 

We're told Wall and his party left without further incident. 

Calls to Wall's rep have not been returned. 

John had posted a photo of his crew on the way to Vegas on May 22nd ... though it's unclear if the same guys were involved in the incident on the flight home. 


Gilbert Arenas

Dissin' Javaris Crittenton

... He No Longer Exists

5/16/2015 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Javaris Crittenton is dead to Gilbert Arenas

Agent Zero was out in L.A. last night ... when we asked if he would ever consider visiting his x-NBA teammate in prison, where he'll be spend the next 23 years for killing a woman in 2011.

FYI -- the two made headlines together back in 2009 ... when they pulled guns on each other in the Washington Wizards locker room.

But Arenas tells TMZ Sports he's erased Javaris from his memory -- saying there's no chance he'll visit the guy because ... "Why would I need to be reminded of prison for? I've seen 'Locked Up,' it's not a nice place."

We also asked Arenas about his fireworks arrest in 2013 -- and if he still plans to light up the sky on July 4th, 2015 ... despite the fact he's on probation.

Check out his answer ... clearly, Arenas doesn't care that he's still on probation and skating on thin ice.

... Who Lost Cancer Battle

12/9/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Washington Wizards star John Wall fought back tears last night ... after dedicating his performance to his 6-year-old friend Miyah Telemaque-Nelson who died of cancer Monday morning. 

"This is an emotional game for me," Wall said following the win against the Celtics ... "This is for Miyah of my close friends that I lost that I met last year."

1208-casey-phillips-twitterWall and Miyah were pretty tight -- and he helped her meet Nicki Minaj back in March. 

"I can't believe this little angel is gone," Minaj wrote Tuesday morning ... "When I met her she was recovering."

"Sending love to her mother and family and John. This is heartbreaking. She was so full of life. #RIPMiyah."


Kris Humphries

Taunted with 'Kanye' Chant

... During NBA Game

11/13/2014 11:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
111314_kris_humphries_launchKris Humphries is still being harassed over his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian ... with an entire section of Toronto Raptors fans starting a "Kanye" chant to troll him during a recent NBA game.

TMZ Sports has the footage showing Humphries at the free throw line during Friday's Wizards vs. Raptors game in Toronto.

The chant worked. Humphries missed the shot ... and the crowd went insane.

It's not the first time Kris has been trolled about the marriage -- in fact, Kanye himself took a shot at Kris right when he started dating Kim ... rapping that Kris was lucky Yeezy's pal Jay Z didn't drop him from the team he was on at the time.

For the record, it's been THREE YEARS since Kris and Kim broke up.

Sam Cassell


Sorry John Mayer, You're On Your Own

3/24/2014 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former NBA star Sam Cassell is a VERY happy man -- 'cause he just learned the expensive watch he bought from the famous watch guy John Mayer is suing is 100% REAL. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Cassell was extremely concerned about his A. Lange & Sohne time piece when he learned that Mayer had recently filed a lawsuit claiming watch dealer Robert Maron sold him Rolex watches with bogus parts. 

Cassell -- who was introduced to Maron through ex-Clippers head coach Mike Dunleavy -- immediately had his watch inspected by a reputable jeweler ... who confirmed Sam's watch is LEGIT. 

Cassell's cousin says he also bought multiple Rolex watches from Maron ... and those all checked out as well. 

The results will be no surprise to Charlie Sheen -- Maron's BFF -- who insisted all along that Robert's the real deal and Mayer's allegations are total crap. 

As for Sam, a rep for the NBA star tells us, "He's very relieved."

Brooklyn Nets Player


... And It's Hilarious!

3/5/2014 7:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

'Memba when Nets player Andray Blatche was shuttin' down that big-assed woman in Bev Hills last week?? Well, Lakers star Nick Young sure does ... and last night, he REENACTED the whole scene. 

Young was out in front of the Roosevelt Hotel when he brought up the TMZ Sports video featuring a drunken Blatche trying to duck a thirsty jock-chaser like his life depended on it. 

So, in an obvious tribute to his former Washington Wizards teammate ... Young and a friend acted out the moment right in the street -- it's pretty damn hilarious. 

Ya gotta watch the clip.


Carmelo Anthony

Do Your Homework!!!

I'll Give You Knicks Tix

10/19/2013 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Stay in school, kids ... because if you do well, Carmelo Anthony will give you free Knicks tickets!!! At least that's what he did in Baltimore this week.

Melo and teammate Iman Shumpert dropped by the Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center in MD to spend some time with the kids in the program, and Melo rewarded the 15 Students of the Month with free Knicks tickets to Thursday's game in Baltimore (against the Wizards).

Anthony gave each student 2 tickets ... handing out 30 total ... but he didn't forget about the non-Students of the Month. We're told he handed out t-shirts to everyone. And they all had a blast.

Talk about a real winner -- and not just because the Knicks trounced the Wizards 98-89.


Jason Collins' Twin Brother

Gets Straight to the Point

0516_jason_jarron_collins_PCNTelling apart newly out and proud NBA player Jason Collins from his identical twin brother Jarron Collins just got a whole lot easier.

Jason and Jarron were spotted leaving "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in Hollywood on Wednesday looking pretty similar as usual, except for one thing ... Jarron wore a shirt that highlighted a major difference between them.

As a joke, Kimmel gave Jarron the "I'm the Straight One"  t-shirt during his interview on the TV show last night ... not that there's anything wrong with that.

Lance Bass to Jason Collins


to the Club!

5/11/2013 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
051113_collins_bass_launchJason Collins is not currently the member of any NBA team, but he's part of a different club of sorts these days ... and membership gets you a congratulatory handshake from Lance Bass

We spotted Collins and Bass outside Boa in West Hollywood Friday night. Collins was there with his twin brother Jarron and Bass was there with a group of buds. Our photog asked Jason about his dating life ... but the bballer prefers to keep his personal life close to the vest. 

It's interesting -- some people who come out want everyone to know everything about their romantic life -- but it's not the same for everyone.

Jason Collins' Ex

I'm Freezing My Eggs

He Took 8 Years From Me!

5/3/2013 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-WNBA star Carolyn Moos says her ex-fiance Jason Collins burned 8 fertile years off her womb's life -- and now she's planning to freeze her eggs before her biological clock stops ticking.

Moos previously said she had a life plan to have kids with Collins during their time together -- and after she learned he was gay, she felt the NBA player shattered her dreams.

34-year-old Moos says she still wants to have children -- but she's concerned she might not meet Mr. Right until she's too old to conceive ... so she's taken steps to have her eggs frozen later this month in case she wants to undergo in vitro fertilization sometime down the line.

"So many women think about this as a plan or option ... but few have had 8 years taken away from them like I did."

Moos says the procedure will cost around $10,000 -- but she's hoping to get some financial backing from any production company looking to capture the journey for a documentary.

So far, it's unclear if she's had any offers.

Twitter Death Threats

After Gay Announcement

5/1/2013 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's not all love for the first major (active) pro athlete to come out of the closet ... NBA player Jason Collins has also been the target of online death threats since announcing he's gay.

The homophobic threats began appearing on Twitter right after Jason's big coming-out interview with Sports Illustrated. Among the venom ...

-- "Yous a dead f****t talkn on tv Boy."
-- "Listening to Jason Collins describe his gayness as 'beautiful' makes me wanna puke. And kill him."
-- "Jason collins comes out the closet! Kill that biiitttchhhh!!!"
-- "First jason collins say he gay.. Now he on espn w lipgloss on  kill him now !!!"
-- "Jason Collins should get the death penalty lol how u a 7 foot gay dude lol the west is crazy smh"

In the S.I. article, Collins says he doesn't expect everyone to embrace him ... but it's unclear if he expected this kind of hatred.

We reached out to Collins for comment -- so far, no word back.


Jason Collins' Ex-Fiancee

I Had NO IDEA He Was Gay

4/30/2013 11:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details
0428_jason_collins_carolyn_moosThe woman who was once engaged to NBA star Jason Collins tells TMZ, she had NO CLUE he was gay at the time of their relationship ... in fact, she only found out last weekend ... and she was floored.

Carolyn Moos (who played a few seasons in the WNBA) dated Collins for seven years and was engaged to him until they broke up in 2009 ... after Collins pulled the plug on their wedding.

Carolyn tells TMZ, she never once suspected he was gay, so the news is shocking. She says Collins eventually revealed everything last weekend -- just days before his big announcement -- and said that his homosexuality was the real reason he ended things with her.

At the time of their breakup, Carolyn says Jason gave a bunch of BS reasons for calling it quits ... and she could never understand what went wrong, until now.

Carolyn -- who's back on the hunt for Mr. Right -- tells us, "It's very emotional for me as a woman to have invested 8 years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him. So this is all hard to understand."

She adds, "I care about [Jason] tremendously and only want the best for him. I want Jason to be happy for a lifetime and stay true to who he really is, inside and out."
