REHEATED BEEF: Delonte West Blasts LeBron James On Twitter Out Of Nowhere
Delonte West's history with LeBron James is one of the weirder interpersonal sagas in NBA tabloid lore. Having won 172 games together in Cleveland from 2007 to 2010, you'd think the two would have something of a special bond because successful teams tend to get along, but rumors have long persisted that West and James never saw eye to eye. You can read into their contrasting character traits all you want -- James' larger than life persona and million-watt smile vs. the dour West's inconspicuous "I'm just trying to make a living" attitude -- but the elephant is hard to look past.
SPOILER ALERT: Delonte West was rumored to have slept with LeBron's mother, Gloria.
As their careers diverged since West was traded from the Cavaliers to the Boston Celtics -- potentially in an attempt to appease LeBron, who was about to leave in free agency -- their bizarre relationship has become boring. Probably because West patently denied the mom-banging rumors, or maybe simply because LeBron's personal life has become untouchable, we've stopped talking about the mysterious/salacious source of their beef.
You know who hasn't forgotten about it? Delonte West.
Here's what the former NBA point guard tweeted out Monday night, seemingly out of nowhere.
