Delonte West Gloria James Dating? LeBron James Mom Gloria James Rumor
Delonte West Gloria James Dating? LeBron James Mom Gloria James Rumor – If you were wondering why LeBron James has not been in top shape on the court lately, well we may have a partial answer for you. There is a wild rumor circulating on the internet that claims, LeBron James mother Gloria James is sleeping with Cavilers guard Delonte West.

According to Terez Owens the Delonte West/Gloria James affair has been going on for some time now but LeBron James found out about it just before Game four of the series against the Boston Celtics. Terez Owens who broke the news said:
LeBron’s teammate Delonte West is sleeping with LeBron’s Mother Gloria James..Yes, this is the purported story coming from my source in Cleveland..My source explains the following. 

He added: 
”My uncle is the general contractor at the Q and has been for the last 7 years. He’s good friends with a lot of guys at the Q, including some of the bigger boys in the organization and knows Dan Gilbert personally.My uncle has been told that Delonte has been banging Gloria James (Lebron’s Mom) for some time now. Somehow Lebron found out before game four and it destroyed their chemistry and divided the team. I am not making this up, I wish it wasn’t true but it happened. .”

If you watched Game 4 you could have clearly noticed that something was seriously troubling Delonte West, now we know what it was. 

LeBron Opens The Door to Doubt
When LeBron James won his second consecutive MVP trophy a couple weeks ago, nba.com asked some of the greatest players in league history to sing the young king's praises, and nobody was more effusive than Larry Bird. "He's one guy in the league that I think he'll probably be better than all of us when it's all said and done," Larry said, and he meant it.

And really, who could argue? In seven years, we never had a reason to question LeBron's ceiling. He might have the most stunning combination of athleticism, size, coordination, talent and agility in human history. Nobody has more pure potential. Maybe nobody ever has.

And everything was an almost unnatural natural progression -- No. 1 pick, rookie of the year, the second round of the playoffs in his third season, the NBA Finals in his fourth. Never mind that his inferior Cleveland Cavaliers team was swept by San Antonio that year, or that he struggled against the Spurs. He was ascending, as it is foretold with this particular degree of prodigy.

And even though he has failed to reach the Finals since 2007, there was never any credible questioning of LeBron himself. Oh, you could question his coach (Mike Brown, who is reportedly going to be fired in the near future) or his motley collection of teammates (his most productive sidekick has been Mo Williams, who is no Scottie Pippen).

No, LeBron was almost always great, he was a sort of machine. This year he won that second straight MVP award, he was named to the league's all-defensive team, and his Cavaliers won the most games in basketball for the second straight season.

He would win championships, surely. Players as great as him always do.

But this week, LeBron James changed. His legacy changed. And how we see him changed, too.

In Game 5 of Cleveland's second-round series against the Boston Celtics, LeBron stopped trying. It's not debatable. People who say he just had a bad game, or who say Cleveland lost because his teammates aren't good enough are completely missing the point. LeBron James didn't just play badly, though that's true. And Boston's total talent trumps Cleveland's, though the Celtics hid it well this season.

But LeBron mentally detached himself from the game. On defence, he often stood straight-legged, watching the play. On offence he did the same, or passed without ever probing the defence. He took, and missed, jumpers. He stared at the scoreboard during huddles. He just wasn't all there.

Kobe Bryant had played a few of these sociopathic passive-aggressive, send-a-message games before, sure. But we had never seen it from LeBron.

I don't know why he did this. Nobody knows. Was it his injured right elbow? Well, a bad elbow doesn't keep you from trying to defend. I don't know if he has quit on the Cavaliers, with free agency looming; I don't know if he is simply tired of lifting his hometown on those impossibly broad shoulders. Nobody knows why LeBron checked out except LeBron, and he ain't sayin'.

(It got to the point that a preposterous-sounding rumour lit up the Internet yesterday, claiming Cavaliers guard Delonte West was sleeping with LeBron's mother, Gloria, and LeBron found out before Game 5. If we can't trust ludicrous-sounding, unsourced Internet whispers, of course, what can we trust?)

But the fact is LeBron quit at home, in the fifth game of a 2-2 series, in front of everybody. It was among the most baffling things I have ever seen.

And in Game 6, the single most scrutinized game of his unthinkably scrutinized life, LeBron ‚ well, he didn't answer the questions. His numbers were remarkable: 27 points, 19 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, a blocked shot. But he shot 8-for-21, and committed nine turnovers, and ... something was still missing.

Call it a command of the game, call it the will to win. The numbers looked great, their impact was limited. Yes, Boston is a great defensive outfit. But once LeBron had pulled the Cavaliers to within 78-74 with 9:34 to go, he gave the ball up twice to the offensively limited Anderson Varejao, and turned it over once. Boston scored the next 10 points. Cleveland never got close again.

And in the final minute, the Cavaliers stopped playing as a team. They wouldn't foul to stop the clock. They wouldn't even try. Like their leader in Game 5 they watched, without a fight.

On NBA TV, LeBron's former teammate, Eric Snow, said "I seen some dissension. Like he was upset about something. Seemed like division.''

And so today, as LeBron saunters into his glorious free-agent summer of 2010, he will be scrutinized like no athlete in history -- Barack Obama's chief advisor, David Axelrod, told reporters yesterday that "as a Chicago fan, the President thinks LeBron would look great in a Bulls uniform." Kevin Garnett, who toiled in Minnesota for years before winning in Boston, said "Loyalty is something that hurts you at times, because you can't get youth back."

Michael Jordan didn't win a title until his seventh season; Shaq didn't win one until his eighth. LeBron is still just 25. He's still the most talented player in basketball. There's plenty of time.

But for the first time, we're not sure about LeBron James. He has spent all this time becoming a corporation, a would-be billionaire, an icon. But without the championships, it doesn't mean anything, and you can't get youth back. The bar is Bill Russell, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Bird. No lower.

When LeBron James was 16, he kept a mockup of a Sports Illustrated cover in his room with his picture on it, with the headline, IS HE THE NEXT MICHAEL JORDAN?

Maybe. But for the first time, maybe not. For the first time in LeBron James's stellar career, we are left wondering just what kind of a star he is.

 LeBron James Comes Home
To receive his first NBA Most Valuable Player award, LeBron James returned to his old high school gymnasium at St. Vincent-St. Mary and had the student body as his witnesses.

On Sunday, he picked up his second Maurice Podoloff Trophy at the University of Akron’s James A. Rhodes Arena, where the Irish played most of their games after the world discovered "the Chosen One."
