Calvin Murphy Fires Up The Delonte Got With LeBron’s Mom Rumors Again

Hall-of-Famer Calvin Murphy appeared on ESPN Radio in Houston today and as all basketball conversations must do, the topic turned to the rumors about Delonte West’s dalliance with LeBron James’ mom. Murphy’s response: “It ain’t no rumor.”
Murphy—who is not exactly the classiest individual to ever wear an NBA uniform—didn’t just say he thinks it could have possibly, maybe happened. He says the story is “absolutely true,” that everyone knew about it, and he has “legit” sources who can prove it. Oh, and there’s also more than one dude involved. Unbelievable.
Since Murphy had already gone all-in, he also threw out new rumors about LeBron “taking time off” and had some rather heated opinions about who deserves more blame in this situation. (Calvin is also a fan of the word “homeslice.”) One way or another, someone is definitely getting blackballed by the NBA, because true or not, the powers that be can’t be happy about this.
By the way, when Calvin Murphy is distressed by your behavior … then you really messed up somewhere.

Calvin Murphy: LeBron James’ Mother ‘Absolutely’ Had Sex With Delonte West
Late last week rumors began to spread that LeBron James’ mom , 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
. While an attorney for King James has formally denied the “idiotic and ‘off the wall'” speculation (which appears to have absolutely no legitimate foundation), one former player is speaking out to the contrary.
Basketball Hall of Famer Calvin Murphy took to the airwaves Wednesday night 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. My sources, and they’re legit, tell me that the only people that didn’t know it was happening was LeBron and me.”
Murphy, who was once accused of sexually abusing five of his 14 daughters (who were fathered with nine different women, only one of whom he married), says James “may take time off.” He also claims “there was another party… that West wasn’t the only” man involved in the alleged affair.
