Where those rumors originated from nobody really knows. However, Delonte West has adamantly denied that there is any truth to the crazy accusations that he slept with Lebron James' mother, Gloria.
"Number one, something like that never happened. I don't know where they got that from. For a strong black woman like that, for people to try to tear her down, that's terrible. That's terrible in so many ways."
Delonte has said that Gloria James reminds him of his own mother, who too had to raise him and his siblings as a single mother during hard times.
According to Delonte his mother raised him and his siblings to be, ""happy-poor, just enjoy life and the blessings that God has given us."
The rumor of Delonte's intimate encounter with James' mother played a major role in Lebron's performance during the 2010 playoffs, and has since effected Delonte's life both on and off the court.
"It's affected me. Everywhere I go, first question, 'Don't tell me you did that.'"
It's time to give Delonte a break and move past those ridiculous rumors and start respecting him for the good ball player that he is.
