An NBA Hall of Famer is confirming the reported relationship between the mother of Lebron James and fellow Cleveland Cavalier Delonte West saying that the rumors are “absolutely true.”
As previously reported rumors swirled last week that James’ poor performance in the Eastern Conference semifinals was because he heard that his mother was having a sexual relationship with his teammate.
He has since denied those claims through his lawyer who’s spoken out to call them “rubbish”, “defamatory” and “categorically false.”
Unfortunately for King James however, the scandal’s picking up steam now that Hall of Famer Calvin Murphy is commenting on the issue.
Murphy, a former player for the Houston Rockets, appeared on ESPN radio and when asked his opinion on the scandal he candidly said,
“It ain’t no rumor. Unfortunately my sources in the NBA tell me that it’s absolutely true. My sources…and they’re legit tell me that the only people who didn’t know what was happening were Lebron and me…I could not imagine me being in that situation and him still being on my team because one of us is going to be dead and the other one’s going to be in jail. No question about it…they was doing the horizontal pokey.”
Took them long enough.
The lawyer sent a cease and desist letter to the website originally reporting the story and said “no thinking person would believe this story.”
According to TMZ: In the email, Frederick Nance — attorney for LeBron and Gloria — says the report is “categorically false and per se defamatory.” Nance adds, “No thinking person could possibly believe such rubbish.”
All we can do is take a deep breath. This would of been disturbing on another level if it was true.
Jay-Z had breakfast with the real Billionaire Boys Club yesterday.
Jigga who is minority owner of the New Jersey Nets dined with majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg at Gracie Mansion.
Prokhorov, who is from Russia and has a ridiculous net worth of $13.4 billion revealed he and Hov have a lot in common.
According to the New York Daily News, Prokhorov said of Jay-Z “We are soul mates, I’m looking forward to hanging out with him.”
The pair should have plenty of time to do just that as they attempt to resurrect a New Jersey Nets franchise that seems stuck in reverse.
“For me, it’s a great pleasure to be here as the new owner of the Nets, the team with the best record in the whole NBA,” Prokhorov joked. “Was I misinformed?”
Unfortunately not Mr Prokhorov. As Dennis Green would say, the Nets “are who you thought they were.”

MTV: The morning after LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers were bounced from the NBA Playoffs — an exit that very well may have also punched the superstar’s ticket out of Cleveland, since he can opt out of his contract June 30 — Jay-Z, one of his closest friends (and part owner of the New Jersey Nets), phoned in to Stephen A. Smith’s Fox Sports Radio program to weigh in on the situation.
While Jay didn’t say where he thinks James will end up next season (though, thanks to his friendship with the King, and the salary-cap room the Nets have to work with, New Jersey seems to be a logical fit), he did give his take on the Cavs’ elimination at the hands of the Boston Celtics — which he didn’t find all that shocking, to be honest.
“The first thing I would say is, never really underestimate the heart of a champion,” Jay told Smith. “Like, Boston just won a championship two years ago, and it was a great story for everyone to dismiss them and just say, ‘This is going to be an easy series.’ I think LeBron and the Cavs — because they’re basketball players, they’re not into media sensation — they knew this was going to be a war and a tough series.
“I think Boston got healthy at the right time, and I think the fact that a lot of them were out a lot of the year, it kind of worked in their favor, because a lot of them are rested,” Jay continued. “They’re rested and they’re healthy at the right time, and this is a champion just two years ago. … So this is not like a 16 seed; this is a real team. And [Celtics point guard Rajon] Rondo is playing like [onetime Celtics star] Nate Archibald or somebody, man. Who is this guy?”
Smith also grilled Jay on his relationship with new Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, an eccentric Russian billionaire who bought controlling interest of the team late last year (a deal that was approved by the NBA earlier this week). Jay said that he’s already met with Prokhorov and that he plans to play an “active” role in the rebuilding of the franchise.
“I sat down with him, and we had a fantastic conversation, and there were things that I really wanted to make clear: that I wanted to be an active owner and this is something I really care about. It’s not just a name cachet for me,” Jay said. “It’s just a thing that I love. I love sports. Everybody was happy about what I was saying, so it looks like I’ll be taking a more active role in what’s going on. … Should be fun.”
Rumorville all over the net is saying that Cavilers Guard Delonte West has been sleeping with LeBron James mother and the affair has been going on for a while now. According to Terez Owens:
LeBron’s teammate Delonte West is sleeping with LeBron’s Mother Gloria James..Yes, this is the purported story coming from my source in Cleveland..My source explains the following:
”My uncle is the general contractor at the Q and has been for the last 7 years. He’s good friends with a lot of guys at the Q, including some of the bigger boys in the organization and knows Dan Gilbert personally.My uncle has been told that Delonte has been banging Gloria James (Lebron’s Mom) for some time now. Somehow Lebron found out before game four and it destroyed their chemistry and divided the team. I am not making this up, I wish it wasn’t true but it happened. .”
With Delonte West’s checkered past, LeBron can be none too pleased with his teammate and good friend hanging with his Mother… The Cavs definitely looked like a different squad from game 4 on..especially LeBron…coincidence, or did this really just happen? Maybe this is the reason LeBron’s leaving Cleveland..-TO
Crazy, I know. But Terez Owens is a pal of mine and I know has connections. He has no reason to make this up and it could be the reason for LeBron James’ play in games 4, 5 & 6. Terez is also the man who broke the story of Reggie Bush & Kim Kardashian’s 1st breakup; only he broke it over a week before the mainstream media ran with it.
