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.
