Delonte West Finally Addresses Rumors of Knocking Off LeBron’s Mom

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 29, 2010

Delonte West kept his mouth shut after a firestorm of rumors emerged after their loss to Boston in the playoffs that West was bangin’ Bron’s mother.  Here’s what Delonte had to say about the matter:

His Celtics homecoming seemed to bring some peace to Delonte West, so much so that yesterday during media day he was smiling, which was a rarity last season in Cleveland. Reporters were told only to ask questions pertaining to basketball, squeezing much of the anticipation from West’s first interview in more than a year.

But then a reporter from a local radio station asked West the question that basketball fans, entertainment buffs, gossip columnists, and the entire Northeast Ohio region had been wondering about since the Cavaliers were eliminated from the NBA playoffs last May.

Did West have an intimate relationship with Gloria James, the mother of two-time Most Valuable Player and former teammate LeBron James?

Before a frantic team official could intervene, undoubtedly fearing West might react with four-letter words, or perhaps clam up altogether, as he did last season, West took a deep breath, stared the reporter in the eye, and addressed whether the rumors were true.

“Not at all,’’ he said. “I come from an era where you don’t say nothing bad about someone’s parent, so not at all.’’

MontMcLovin- Sounds like he’s hiding something.

Allen Iverson might be headed to China

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 14, 2010

Allen Iverson’s(notes) 2009-10 season didn’t go quite as he planned. After three games coming off the bench with the Grizzlies, he decided he hated coming off the bench for the Grizzlies and left the team. Then — after AI’s brief retirement — because they’re suckers for nostalgia, the 76ers brought Iverson back for a 25-game stint that ended with Iverson leaving the team to address his 4-year-old daughter’s health problems. A divorce and allegations that Iverson was gambling and drinking excessively followed. All in all, not a great few months for one of the NBA’s biggest stars of the past decade.

This past July, Iverson Tweeted that he wants to “return to the NBA this season” and that he “[owes his] fans more than what they have seen of [him] the last couple seasons.” Plus, his “family is rock solid and healthy” and he can “concentrate fully on what [he does] best.” That’s a quote festival, but it basically addresses everything that was troubling Iverson during last season.

Unfortunately for the Answer, there aren’t a lot of NBA teams dying to sign a shoot-first 35-year-old who is going to complain about his role on the team if he’s not happy. But that doesn’t mean he can’t get back to playing basketball professionally. There are good leagues all over the globe and new reports, courtesy of The Hoops Market, shed a little light on Iverson’s possible plans.

Allen Iverson could continue his career in China. The 35-year-old guard is in talks with Foshan (the new name of Shaanxi) for the next season, according to sources from the Chinese team. Iverson, still a free agent after not signing a contract with any NBA team, would have a “strong desire” to play in the CBA.


Hey, if there’s a place that scoring guards can succeed both on the court and away from it, it’s China. As Stephon Marbury(notes) has shown us, Chinese basketball for super-quick ball-handlers is all 3-pointers, alley-hoops and shoe franchises. And if Stephon Marbury can be an outrageous success, then so can a lot of other people.

Of course, there remains a month and a half before the NBA season tips and some teams might still be convinced that Iverson has some floaters left in the tank (gross metaphor). Plus, they always seem to be drawn to Iverson’s ability to lure customers to the ticket booths, so there’s a chance he could get a non-guaranteed veteran’s minimum deal somewhere. But, at the very least, it looks like Allen Iverson is going to have a basketball job this season. For a guy who’s had a pretty rough year, that’s good news.

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 31, 2010 has been hearing a CHORUS OF CRITICISM from women claiming that Savannah was being used by her babys father, NBA superstar LeBron James. But now, EXCLUSIVELY learned that Savannah’s a lot shrewder businesswoman than many gave her credit for.

According to a VERY RELIABLE NBA insider, LeBron negotiated a $25 MILLION DEAL with Savannah. And under the terms of the reported deal, Savannah would receive the money “in case their relationship ends.”

The insider explain, “It’s actually a paternity/confidentiality agreement, many NBA players have it with their child’s mothers. But LeBron’s is a lot more detailed and Savannah gets a lot more than most.”

The deal, the snitch tells, guarantees Savannah a lump sum of $25 MILLION if she and LeBron separate. In exchange, Savannah is NOT ALLOWED to talk about LeBron to the public.

DANG GIRL!!! We ain’t know you were THAT KINDA Businesslady . . . we got new respect of rthe chick now!!!

LeBron to Stovell: You are Not My Father

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 31, 2010

Washington (CNN)A filing on behalf of basketball superstar LeBron James dismisses as “rank speculation” claims by a Washington lawyer that he is the athlete’s biological father, saying the man has “delusions” about alleged family ties.

Lawyers for James and his mother filed papers in federal court Monday seeking to dismiss a pending lawsuit. Leicester Stovell alleges the NBA all-star and his family have been involved in a cover-up to deny paternity, by committing fraud and misrepresentation.

The 14-page doc**ent said Stovell had completely failed to prove any of the facts alleged in his June 23 complaint. And they said he was motivated only by fame and money, calling Stovell’s actions a “fanciful hope for celebrity.”

The lawsuit claims Stovell met James’ mother, Gloria, in a Washington bar and restaurant in 1984, when she was visiting from Ohio. She was 15 or 16 at the time, and Stovell says they had sex only once, and was informed by Gloria James months later that she was pregnant. He claims she told him the child would be named LeBron, similar to Leicester Bryce, Stovell’s first and middle names.

Stovell is asking for unspecified millions of dollars in damages, and says he has been trying for three years to establish paternity, which he hopes would lead to financial and commercial opportunities. He is a solo legal practitioner in the District of Columbia, and filed the lawsuit on his own behalf.

He alleges a DNA test that showed he was not James’ father was falsified.

James’ attorneys, Frederick Nance and John Burlingame, dismissed those suggestions in often mocking tones aimed at the plaintiff.

“Stovell’s claims for millions of dollars from his p***tive son and Gloria James are based upon rank speculation,” said the court filing, “that a man who claims that as a 29-year-old lawyer he got a 15-year-old girl pregnant during a one-night stand and who never contributed a penny in child support would earn millions in commercial endors****ts by crawling out of the woodwork after the child he never gave a thought to became an NBA star.”

James, a native of Akron, Ohio, recently left the Cleveland Cavaliers to sign with the Miami Heat for what is believed to be one of the richest sports contracts in history. He is the reigning most valuable player of the NBA, and has carefully cultivated a public image as one of the most popular and talented athletes.

The complaint filed June 23 by Stovell said, “I recently have concluded that a comprehensive, sophisticated and well-funded effort might well have been under way for quite some time, perhaps beginning in its present form as early as when defendant LeBron James was in high school, to frustrate identification of his real father, and that there is a likelihood that the father in question is me.”

James’ lawyers think otherwise. “Stovell may truly believe that he is the father of LeBron James, even though a DNA test has told him otherwise. But his delusions do not give rise to a cause of action against either Gloria or LeBron James.”

Public records show Stovell is a former government attorney with the Securities and Exchange Commission. He filed a lawsuit in 2002 against the agency, alleging racial discrimination. Federal court records show the case was settled when the SEC paid him $230,000, while not admitting fault.

Carmelo Anthony vs Kat Stacks

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 31, 2010

The Carmelo Anthony vs Kat Stacks saga might have just taken an even more serious turn, with Kat claiming she has filed a police report against the NBA star.

Last week Denver Nuggets basketball player, Carmelo Anthony and his wife Lala Vasquez got into an argument on Twitter, that was sparked by Stacks sending a flirtatious tweet to Anthony.

Instead of ignoring it, Carmelo and Lala took the bait. The argument that ensued ended with Carmelo sending out a tweet offering a $5,000 bounty to anyone that would slap Stacks.

Not soon after, Carmelo’s Twitter account was deleted with him later claiming it was hacked.

The account has since been restored, but troubles caused by the threat may be just beginning.

Last night (August 30), Stacks sent out a tweet claiming she had filed a police report about the incident.

So the FBI getting involved since its an internet case

Just filed a police report on @CarmeloAnthony

Don’t you ever put my life and my son life in danger!

Whether or not she actually did remains to be seen, but the fact is that threat could wind up costing ‘Melo way more than 5G’s.

Hopefully, for his sake Kat was just bullsh*tting and this whole thing will just blow over.
