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."

You idiots, you didn't need to bother blanking out his email when you NAMED the attorney. We're all (and I mean virtually all attorneys) listed at our firms with bios and all our professional contact information. "Frederick Nance attorney" will get you his info at the top. You guys really don't know much about how real people make a living/operate. LOLMZ

What a pathetic excuse. Cavs lost to Celts because James' mom slept with his West.

Think about this, if you was one of the teams that wanted LJ, you first would need to make sure he didn't want to stay in CLevland, and after this story, I don't think he will. heck of a rumor to start or is it true, bu think about what I said

kgarnett if your mama is sleeping with delonte west too, please win the championship anyway. please, i know its gonna be hard to focus, but YOU can do it, man.

poor labron he's so ghetto, just like his nasty momma. wearing his name on tshirts like that! come on labron. they say the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

cleveland cavaliers beggin him like that. they still gonna lose because the front office cant put a team together.

but hopefully he wont do things to embarrass his kids once they are grown, despite not having much of a role model in his mother. also, i like that his kids look like him and his mother and that he hasnt had a baby with somebody white which would completely distort all his lovely. and i like that he doesnt have about a hundred baby mammas and that HE is not always caught up in some kind of scandal with some nasty. he deserves his cudoos for that.

maybe he ought to make his mama get out and get a job. then she be too tired for all that low life. maybe he shouldnt have let that lowlife soap opera drama make him lose the game. And maybe he ought not be so high on himself. he might learn to fight harder, if he stop taking it for granted that he all that. i dont care how skilled he is, he is always going to have to "fight" to overcome adversity and to be a true champion, requires an everyday all the time step up to the challenge.

go kg! you a real dog on the court and i love you

I don't know if they are sleeping together but they are definitely hanging out. I live in the Akron area and my mom saw Lebron's mom and Delonte West going into Wal-Mart together when she was coming out Sunday late afternoon.
