An NBA Hall of Famer is confirming the reported relationship between the mother of Lebron James and fellow Cleveland Cavalier Delonte West saying that the rumors are “absolutely true.”
As previously reported rumors swirled last week that James' poor performance in the Eastern Conference semifinals was because he heard that his mother was having a sexual relationship with his teammate.
He has since denied those claims through his lawyer who's spoken out to call them “rubbish”, “defamatory” and “categorically false.”
Unfortunately for King James however, the scandal's picking up steam now that Hall of Famer Calvin Murphy is commenting on the issue.
Murphy, a former player for the Houston Rockets, appeared on ESPN radio and when asked his opinion on the scandal he candidly said,
“It ain't no rumor. Unfortunately my sources in the NBA tell me that it's absolutely true. My sources…and they're legit tell me that the only people who didn't know what was happening were Lebron and me…I could not imagine me being in that situation and him still being on my team because one of us is going to be dead and the other one's going to be in jail. No question about it…they was doing the horizontal pokey.”
Murphy previously went to trial in 2004 for allegedly sexually abusing five of his 14 daughters and was acquitted of all charges.
