The poor performance was written off due to an elbow injury, but it was sadly for Cavs fans, the last chance they had to see Le Bron in the Wine & Blue.
For those that had yet to hear, the lawyer statement only added fuel to the fire.
Sportstalk radio exploded with everyone offering their own theories, but most seemed to if not center around, at least come back to pieces of the hotel story.
Soon, sports radio hosts were empowered to talk about it after ESPN’s Colin Cowherd alluded to it on his show, though he claims he was sworn to hold the true details close to the vest.
Delonte and Gloria were hooking up a lot during the Cavs 2010 season.
She began traveling with the team more, and became closer to Delonte who was in the midst of a divorce to his wife of less than a year.
The whole relationship came to a head while in Boston during the 2010 NBA playoffs.Le Bron went out to dinner with friends Jay-Z and Beyonce, leaving a self proclaimed slightly under the weather Gloria James back in the team hotel.Le Bron advised mom not to venture out into the notoriously vulturous Boston city, especially during the playoffs, and that he would bring her back a doggie bag.After a short dinner, Le Bron returned to the team hotel with mom’s dinner.When he arrived at mom’s hotel room door, he was greeted by Delonte West wearing nothing but a towel and a fresh coat of sweat.The Cavaliers were obviously elminated shortly thereafter with a visibly shaken Le Bron James having the worst playoff series of his career.
