Delonte West Speaks On Gloria James Affair Rumors

While most people were focused on the South Beach NWO and Carmelo Anthony at their respective media days, Delonte West calmly and quietly spoke about his interesting off season.

He refused to talk about his gun case, that he copped to a plea deal for, but he did speak about the rumors that he was breaking lamps with Lebron James’ mom Gloria.

Here is the quote when asked if the rumors were true:

“I come from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent, so not at all.”

I wouldn’t call it a strong denial, it was more of a “mind your business” type of comment.

If you like drama you are hoping that Delonte makes the Celtics (his spot isn’t a given), because when the Heat and Celtics face off the subplots will be thick.

The conspiracy theorists say that is the only reason West was signed at all was to get into Lebron’s head. I think that is a bit far fetched, but if it is effective more power to the Celtics.

    I think its true that it happened and that the Celtics did it to mess with LeBron. They said flat out they got Shaq just so he can one up Kobe… its not far fetched to think they'd try and get to LeBron too.

  2. John says:

    Not a strong denial? That wasn't a denial at all.

    If nothing happened, and he said nothing happened, how is that saying something bad about Gloria James?

  3. Gritty says:

    they signed Delonte because he's a solid player, and got him on the cheap because of his off court problems. This is the NBA, not TMZ

    If it is true about West and LeBron's mother so what.If nether is married I say do your thing.Mom needs some love too….Now if they only signed him to get into LeBron' head I kinda think the suits hit below the belt.It's a game, something like that could cause more damage than they predicted.

      Are you a chick or a dude? Your comment sounds like a dumb chick. Its more than a game, its a business. You dont f%#k your team-mates mom during the playoffs. Check out Lebrons attitude during the games after Delonte and Gloria consummated their relationship. Lebrons head was not in the games. That is why he fled to South Beach. "WHY GLORIA WHY?"

  5. Donnie says:

    How would you feel, just saying if you played in the NBA and your Mother was dating one of the players thats on your team. Could it be that LeBron is human and has feeling about that, but as always we must put a twist on it. Let's find something interesting to talk about. Hey how about the rockies coming in, O I'm sorry nothing juicy about that.

    Seriously, that this is a news story reflects badly upon Do you see reputable news orgs picking up on this story, one that is potentially defamatory to both West and James? Then again, that there is even a website with "Black" as a qualifier to "Sports Online" tells me that race has way too much prominence in something that should be judged on the skill of the players. The court/field/track/rink is a meritocracy, and the best athletes excel. If I posted a "White Sports Online" site I would be harassed, vilified and then likely prosecuted.

    PS: To the right, on the sidebar, the most popular search is "black booty." Grow up, take a cold shower and start treating women as God intended. Oh, and Mr. Littal, as you make money off this site, know it is blood money for which you ultimately will be held accountable.

      The story was confirmed by former basketball player (NBA hall of famer) Calvin Murphy right after the playoffs. Calvin works for ESPN radio in Houston. The people in Cleveland new about this. Why do you think Clevelanders were so Jacked Out when Lebron fled? Bubba this is newsworthy.
