My Apologies to Lebron James, Mom (Gloria), and Delonte West
I wrote an article on Saturday (I believe it was) and I entitled the article Lebron James attacks mom over Delonte West affair rumors.
The photo that I used was the one where Lebron James was being held back by some Boston Celtic players from his mom – Gloria James. But the photo happened to be taken in 2008 when Gloria James was upset over a hard foul on Lebron from Boston players.
The problem is I used that photo as the image for my article, and portrayed the image to be as if it was Lebron James trying to attack his mother Gloria over the Delonte West rumors.
I mean the image fit to a tee – and I really didn’t know any better or any different.
The image made me think it was actually related to the Gloria James and Delonte West affair rumors because:
1) The news about the affair broke while Lebron and Cleveland were playing the Boston Celtics in their playoff series.
2) The rumor involved Gloria James – Lebron’s mother (who was in the image with Lebron and the Boston Celtic’s players.
So I saw the image and assumed (incorrectly) that this was Lebtron trying to attack his mother over the Delonte West rumors.
I made some people pretty upset with that article – so to everyone I offended, “I’m sorry!”
It was a bad mistake on my part – bad “journalism”.
You aren’t able to see the article in question here since I removed it from this blog.
