Delonte west dating gloria james sex dating in pleasanton new mexico

Stop the presses and start the slut-shaming because we simply cannot have the mother of the best basketball player on the planet enjoying herself or her life in any way.

Would Salaf have found it appropriate to comment on the fact that James was dating someone more than a decade her junior if she were a man? Newsflash, Kalaf: Your blog post is actually peculiar and creepy because it's predicated on the assumption that it's somehow gross, wrong or bad for an older woman to date a younger man, just like the hand-wringing rumors from a few years ago that Gloria James had a sexual encounter with Lebron James' former teammate Delonte West. Don't sports writers have stuff like drafts and games and scores and coaches to write about?

In the past, I’ve linked this concept of female sexual behavior as bringing honor or shame upon her family to all kinds of messed up paradigms and behaviors including, at the most extreme end of the spectrum, honor killings.

I’m disappointed but not surprised to see the “yo mama” trope, common in hip hop culture, continue in the realm of professional sports and especially against a woman who has given so much for her son’s success, raising him on her own as a 16-year-old single mother, Gloria Marie James, struggling to find steady work to support him before allowing him to move in with the family of a local youth football coach, who introduced Le Bron to basketball and helped him become the superstar he is today.Here’s an excerpt from the interview: “It’s affected me,” West says.“Everywhere I go, first question, ‘Don’t tell me you did that.’ ” “That” would be the rumor that during the 2010 playoffs, West had a sexual encounter with Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Le Bron James’ mother, Gloria.West says he wants to permanently squash the rumor not just for his sake, but mostly for James and his mother, who West says expressed nothing but kindness during his three seasons in Cleveland. “For a strong black woman like that, for people to try to tear her down, that’s terrible.In fact, West says Gloria James reminded him of his single mother, Delphina Addison, who raised Delonte and his siblings to be “happy-poor, just enjoy life and the blessings that God has given us.
