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.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.
Meanwhile, listless Le Bron began to manifest itself in Game 4, when the MVP was less aggressive than usual. The people of Cleveland may have been betrayed by Le Bron, but Le Bron was betrayed by nearly the entire Cleveland Cavaliers team.
As Bill Simmons stated, "Ilgauskas is the only close friend on that team now."Perhaps Big Z was the only Cavs player out of the loop on the rumor.
He is Le Bron's close friend, and he was out of the loop for a good month while waiting to return after being bought out by the Washington Wizards.
The city of Cleveland has largely blamed Le Bron for quitting on his city, but now we know the possible reason for his quitting.
Late last week rumors began to spread that Le Bron James' mom (PICTURES), Gloria James, had sex with her son's teammate Delonte West.
The bizarre story claimed to explain the Cleveland Cavaliers' poor play and unexpected collapse in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
He risks being cut, according to the Morning News, despite being, you know, pretty good at basketball.
Of course, that man currently is suspended by the Dallas Mavericks for conduct detrimental to the team.
Delonte West was as well known outside of Cleveland as Jamario Moon or Anthony Parker, but then he was rumored to do the unthinkable.
