Internet rumors today are claiming that Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard DeLonte West
had a steamy affair with Gloria James
-- that's right, LeBron James
' mother. So, it pretty much boils down to needing something to blame the Cavs' big loss on, right? Delonte West: He shoots, he scores -- but not with LeBron James' mom. (Getty)
There have been a slew of extremely sketchy emails floating around, claiming to have the inside scoop about the scandal. Like this one (via Deadspin.com
): "My uncle is the general contractor at the Q and has been for the last 7 years. He is good friends with a lot of guys at the Q including some of the bigger boys in the organization and knows Gilbert personally.
I was just told from my brother that a very reliable source informed my uncle that Delonte has been banging Gloria James for some time now. Somehow I guess Lebron found out before game four and it has destroyed our chemistry and divided our team. This is no joke, the only player worse then Lebron has been Delonte. I am not making this up, I wish it wasn't true but it happened. Wait and see if lebron stays you will not see Delonte in a cavs uni again."
Uh huh. Sounds completely legit, don't ya think? The folks at Deadspin even put a call into the Cavs' media relations department, just for kicks, and we're betting, as they are, that the folks over there are rolling their eyes, too. Happy weekend!
