In the video below, Bill Simmons gives his thoughts on the nasty Delonte West rumor, but he has to do this on a radio show because ESPN policy is not to talk about rumors of that nature on the job.
Simmons confidently states, "It's true." This is referring to the rumor that Delonte West had an affair with Gloria James, and West was possibly the cause of Le Bron's disinterest after his stellar Game 3 performance.
He apparently had an affair with the mother of the former savior of Cleveland sports, Le Bron James.
Now, this rumor was denied by both lawyers of James and West, but there are indications that the rumors are true.
That diagnosis had been fairly minor news, and West had gone on to have his best NBA season to date.
But now the clinical label offered, or seemed to offer, an explanation for an outlandish story.
Rumors had circulated that before Game 4, Mo Williams decided to break the news to Le Bron that everyone in the Cavaliers locker room already knew. This news would be a very valid explanation for quite possibly the biggest choke in Cleveland Cavaliers history, and the beginning of the end for Le Bron and the Cavaliers.
Basketball Hall of Famer Calvin Murphy took to the airwaves in late May, and became the most high-profile person to date to back the rumors."It ain't no rumor," he told a Houston ESPN Radio station, calling the claims "absolutely true" and "absolutely horrifying." He went on:"Unfortunately, my sources in the NBA tell me that it's absolutely true.Delonte West, the mercurial basketball player who once played alongside Le Bron James, took shots at his former teammate via Instagram in recent days.West, who last played in the NBA’s D-Leauge, apparently has bad blood with the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar and even placed James’ mother in the path of the jab.and he's already referring to her as his "wifey" on Instagram. posting pics in private jets, boats and expensive-looking resorts ...but it appears Le Bron doesn't have a problem with it. The police later reported that the shotgun was in a guitar case.
