LeBron James has struggled in the NBA Finals, scoring 11 points total over five fourth quarters and looking disinterested in action on the court during Game Four.
Might such poor play be blamed on the action off the court by girlfriend Savanna Brinson?
For the second time in two years, following his second baffling, passive playoff performance, an Internet rumor claims that a fellow basketball player has slept with someone close to the Heat superstar.
Last season, sources said teammate Delonte West got it on with LeBron's mom, Gloria.
Now, at least one website is reporting that Washington Wizards forward Rashard Lewis recently slept with Brinson, LeBron's long-term girlfriend, during a trip to Miami.Claims someone who phoned in to 97.9 The Box:
"My buddy has a place in Orlando... and he lives among some athletes that live there. Needless to say he golfs, drinks, and parties with some of the best people in central Florida. So when word got to him while at the bar last night, he called me. Word got out while drinking with friends, that Rashard Lewis slept with Lebron's girl while visiting South Beach."
Not exactly iron-clad proof, is it?
Then again, what the heck is going on with LeBron James? Two different players banging his mom and his girlfriend in consecutive postseasons sounds ridiculous. But any more ridiculous than the most talented player in basketball playing so passively when it matters most?
Do you think this rumor is true?
