Delonte West denies affair with LeBron James’ mom

Initially, LeBron’s former teammate has been asked directly about the gossip. According to the Boston Globe, a reporter asked West if he slept with Gloria James.

"Not at all," West replied. "I come from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent, so not at all." West, now with the Celtics, is looking forward to playing with his new team. "There’s a lot of excitement here," he said.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Credit Delonte West for going ‘there’. Are his denials too little, too late?

Today, West said he never had an affair with LeBron James’ mother during the 2009-10 season. The damage is done, though.

For months, reporters, bloggers, radio hosts, and the general public have engaged in TMZ style speculation about the combo guard and The King’s mother. And for months, there was silence.

So why believe West now?
