Former Houston Rockets player Calvin Murphy

*NBA Hall of Famer Calvin Murphy told Houston’s ESPN Radio station Wednesday night that rumors of LeBron James’ mother having sex with his Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Delonte West are “absolutely true” and “absolutely horrifying.”

“It ain’t no rumor. Unfortunately, my sources in the NBA tell me that it’s absolutely true,” said Murphy, despite denials from LeBron, who has called the reports “idiotic” and “off the wall.”

“My sources, and they’re legit, tell me that the only people that didn’t know it was happening was LeBron and me,” Murphy said. “And let me tell you something. Delonte West now is one of these players now that is going to get what they call the old proverbial black ball…I could not imagine me being in that situation and him still being on my team cause one of us is going to be dead and the other one is going to be in jail.”

Murphy, who was once accused of sexually abusing five of his 14 daughters (who were fathered with nine different women, only one of whom he married), says James “may take time off.” He also claims “there was another party… that West wasn’t the only” man involved in the alleged affair.
