One of the biggest and most infamous rumors in the modern history of the NBA is that former Cleveland Cavalier Delonte West had slept with ex-teammate LeBron James’ mother, Glorida James. The rumors ran rampant during King James’ final season in Cleveland in 2010 before he took his talents to South Beach to play for the Miami Heat.
While the innuendos were never confirmed and the parties involved vehemently denied the alleged romantic affair back then, James’ play during that playoff loss against the Boston Celtics was so anemic that many people believed there was something to the rumors.
Ironically, now that LBJ has taken his talents back to Cleveland, the rumors would arise once again. In an interview with Vice Sports, West seems to confirm that he indeed had sexual relations with Gloria James.
In a wide-ranging interview, West asked about why he didn’t name his son Delonte Jr:
“I named my son Cash after Cashius Clay and Johnny Cash…His middle name is Delonete but I didn’t want to name him Delonte West Jr. just because of that… I don’t want my son going to school and people making fun of him for something his daddy did, “Oh didn’t yo daddy have sex with LeBron James mama?’ Man, I don’t want to deal with all that . . . “
Well, that looks like confirmation to us. What do you think? Do you believe that he committed the unthinkable act and that this was a confession?
