Delonte West Gloria James, siting in a tree/ k-i-s-s-i-n-g… I’m sorry, that’s crass. I apologize.

I’ll be honest, I never thought basketball was as interesting as this kind of cross-over with the world of soap operas. The speculations are flying around that Cavaliers Point Guard Delonte West has been having an affair with Lebron James’ mother, Gloria James.

The story, of course, is all speculation at this point, not that that has done anything to slow the Interweb’s turgid reaction and rumor-mill love-in. And that’s why we love it.

Granted, it would put a wild sub-plot to speculation that LeBron James may be courted, professionally-speaking, by the Knicks. It would also mark a crossing of the unwritten law by West, who as a teammate of James should probably not have a romantic relationship with anyone James has ever known romantically, let alone a relative as close as his mother.

Still another wild-angle on this would be if people minded their own business regarding other’s personal lives, complicated or not, unless it affects you personally. That way, the Interweb wouldn’t be roiling in speculation, and honest trends-bloggers would feel the need to speculate on speculators speculating. See, how boring that’d be?

People, go back about your business and leave the Delonte West Gloria James business the them for now.
