LeBron's Lawyer: Mom Not Scoring with Teammate

5/18/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James' attorney has fired off a cease and desist email -- finally denying the fast-spreading, and disturbing rumor of a sex scandal involving LeBron's mom and his teammate Delonte West.



TMZ obtained a copy of the email sent to terezowens.com -- the sports blog that first reported on Friday that LeBron's mother Gloria was allegedly sleeping with Delonte.  In the email, Frederick Nance -- attorney for LeBron and Gloria -- says the report is "categorically false and per se defamatory."   Nance adds, "No thinking person could possibly believe such rubbish."

The report -- which also spread as a viral email -- was supposed to explain the Cleveland Cavaliers' playoff loss to the Boston Celtics with this theory: LeBron finds out about Delonte and his mom before game 4 ... Cavs go on to lose games 4, 5, and 6 (and possibly LeBron).

The guys at terezowens tell us, "We think it's a little fishy that they waited almost 4 days to fire this off."  They say they stand by their source, and they're consulting with their lawyers.  The story is still up on their site ... for now.

UPDATE: We also spoke to Keith Estabrook -- a spokesman for the James family -- who told us, "I will not dignify this with a comment."

Delonte is mixed with black and American Indian. He is going through a divorce I think, but DAMN he can do better than LeBron's mom!!

Let's see. His mother conceived him when she was 15, gave birth at 16 and was arrested for DUI at 37. Of course the mainstream media has to treat LeBron's mother with culturally sensitive kid gloves.But I can believe anything and everything from these surreal people from Cleveland, a city that is revolving retrograde around the Sun.

They lost because they played bad, that's it, nothing to do with LeBron's mom. The Cav's will be fine, with or without LeBron, it's his life...

I'm so glad Lebrick James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are relegated to watching the playoffs on television, as opposed to participating in them. That's good stuff.



The Cavs are a bunch of pretenders, lead by the overrated, overhyped Lebrick James.



Hey Lebron, instead of practicing your underhanded shot from halfcourt, why don't you, I don't know, work on your free throws, among other things. Or have you beocme jaded from all the lucre (money) that you have received? Having too much money and celebrity has blunted Mr. James's appetite for improvement IMO.



Oh yeah, let's go Beantown! The C's versus the Lakers in a dream series, winner takes all. I can't wait!
