LeBron James Sex Scandal Leaked; NBA Cover Up Failed

Written by Chris Powers

LeBron James has had a tumultuous career in the NBA. Arguably one of the greatest players to ever take the court, James has been mired in controversy from all angles throughout his career.

One controversy in particular is a sex scandal between James’ mother Gloria James had a relationship of sexual nature with James’s former teammate Delonte West back in 2010 when the two played together for the Cleveland Cavs. Unfortunately, the NBA did a poor job covering this up and keeping this salacious story away from the media.

Even basketball Hall Of Famer Calvin Murphy felt the need to weigh in on the subject.

“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.”

James went on to play horribly in the playoffs that year, and even ESPN Analyst Stephen A. Smith defended LeBron.

To this date, the only people that know for sure what happen or Delonte West, Gloria James, and LeBron James. Also, I personally could care less about knowing what happened.
