This is a terrible rumor. It’s vaguely reminiscent of the Delonte West-Gloria James rumor from a year ago, but for some reason, not as funny. It has absolutely zero evidence to back it up, and in all likelihood, is completely false.
That being said, it’s already trending on Twitter, and you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be on Colin Cowherd’s show by tomorrow morning in some poorly thought out rant regarding father figures or whatever else Cowherd likes to blabber about.
So here is a brief summary of what’s being discussed: once-upon-a-time solid, now-awful NBA player Rashard Lewis allegedly slept with LeBron James’ girlfriend Savannah. The story was born on a site called “HelloBeautiful.com,” and here is what they posted on the matter:
Looks like Lebron James lackluster performance in this year’s NBA playoffs is related to yet another off the court drama. Word on the street is that Rashard Lewis slept with Lebron’s girl Savannah while he was visiting South Beach.
Here’s what I found out:
I have a very reliable source who clubs and drinks with all of the athletes that come through Orlando. He was all over the Tiger Woods issue and knew what all happened with Tiger prior to it being released publicly. My buddy has a place in Orlando, Lake Nona to be exact, and he lives among some athletes that live there in Orlando. 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 Lebrons girl while visiting South Beach.
ESPN’s analyst Stephen A. Smith recently said on his radio show that Bron Bron is going through personal off court issues and that’s the reason for his poor play on the final.
I don’t have all the details but Lebron really need to keep the women in his life in check!
Hopefully legitimate NBA analysts pick this story up and run with it like they did during their effort to sabotage the Los Angeles Lakers.
