Calvin Murphy is best remembered as a NBA Hall of Fame guard for the Houston Rockets in the 1970s, as well as a longtime member of the Rockets’ broadcast team. Unfortunately, he’s also fondly recalled for having 14 children with nine different women and being accused of sexually abusing five of them. So it’s safe to say that he’s not exactly the best source for validating rumors. With that said, Murphy recently told a Houston ESPN radio station that LeBron’s mom indeed had sexual congress with Delonte West… and others.
Murphy said that he knows the rumor, first reported by TerezOwens.com, is true, and that the relationship between Delonte and Gloria James is so widely known within NBA locker rooms that Lebron may have been the only person completely oblivious to the situation. And probably Zydrunas Ilgauskas, because nobody tells that blabbermouth anything.
Touch us under the supervision of a court-appointed official, Huffington Post:
“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.”
I gotta say, if a dude who has been accused of sexually abusing his own daughters calls your situation “absolutely horrifying”… well, you’re pretty much screwed. Murphy, of course, failed to reveal any damning evidence or even draw other attention-starved “witnesses” into the fray, but that didn’t stop him from dropping two other juicy nuggets:
1) Not only, Murphy says, were Delonte and Gloria in flagrante delicto, but LeBron’s mom allegedly had affairs with other players. And B) LeBron is so distraught about these alleged affairs and the humiliating revelation that he may take time away from the NBA, thus leaving the entire sports media world with the biggest set of free agency blue balls ever.
If this turns out to be false, the biggest victim will have been Tiger Woods. Because you know he’s got his fingers and toes crossed right now.
