After false rumors that the big day had come a few weeks ago, it's been confirmed that Keyshia Cole has given birth to a healthy baby boy. She and Boobie Gibson, who have been engaged since New Year's Day when he reportedly gave her an $800,000 ring containing a 10-carat diamond, welcomed their son into the world at 11:54 PM on Tuesday. The baby, who tipped the scales at 7lb, 3oz., was named Daniel Gibson Jr. after his father.
If you heard that Keyshia Cole went into labor with Daniel "Boobie" Gibson's baby yesterday, you heard wrong. It is true that the Cavs guard showed up late to the game after attending to his fiancée and unborn child at the hospital, but it wasn't because the future NBA baby was on the way. Cleveland GM Danny Ferry was the one to clarify things, announcing that Gibson's absence was because Keyshia Cole had been taken into the hospital for "precautionary reasons" and that Boobie had been excused to be by her side. Gibson was back in the building in time for the start of the second half, and he was focused enough to chip in twelve points after the intermission.
Even though Boobie and Keyshia's baby may not be here quite yet, it's not far off. Cole's due date is March 2, which is sandwiched between a Cavs home game against New York on the first and a road contest against the Nets on the third. As always, you can check back here for HoopsVibe's coverage of the latest NBA gossip.
“After Miami defeated Chicago last week to advance to the NBA Finals, James talked about his decision to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. ‘I wanted to team up with some guys that would never die down in the moment,’ James said. ‘The opportunity presented itself with this great organization and we made it happen.’ Speaking on The Dugout Sports Show Podcast on Wednesday, Gibson said, ‘The way it’s said, you can’t help but take it personal. … I don’t think great players should feel the need to say this about a team or say that about a team. I think what it all boils down to if you’re great, you go play great, be great and everybody will realize you’re great. And you wouldn’t have to let it be known that everybody else was less great. Great players shouldn’t have to do that. So I feel like it’s kind of an admission. He might have needed some help. He might have needed to go somewhere and find someone who is a little greater so maybe he wouldn’t die down in those moments.’”
HoopsVibe`s Very Quick Call: It`s cattier than a TMZ fallout between Hollywood socialites. And it's more dramatic than a Shakespeare play.
Daniel Gibson has beef with LeBron James.
This isn't the first time Mr. Keyshia Cole has jousted with the world`s greatest basketball player. Remember, he took issue with his former friend and teammate following The Decision.
Gibson fanned the fire by pronouncing himself the King of Cleveland, which led to a brief twitter war with James. Eventually, cooler heads prevailed.
Here`s the question: Does James care?
He`s currently the toast of the NBA. He`s playing for a championship. He made the right decision to take his talent to South Beach.
Conversely, Gibson is a fringe player. He only makes headlines when feuding with James and because of his wife.
Gibson isn't worth a response. Of course, this is the greatest slight of all.
