According to multiple Internet rumors, Gloria James, the mother of Lebron James, is pushing her son to sign with the New York Knicks because they have several players she "would totally do."
Mrs. James, who has been linked to Cavaliers guard Delonte West, reportedly has told friends that she finds Knicks players Toney Douglas, Danilo Gallinari, Al Harrington, Wilson Chandler and David Lee very attractive.
"But that's just the initial list," said a source with knowledge of the situation. "She's fine with anyone on the roster. Even Eddy Curry, if it would get him in shape so he could help her son on the court."
With Cleveland's season ending earlier than expected, Mrs. James has reportedly been evaluating all of Lebron's possible destinations.
"She has done a lot of research ahead of this big decision," said a Cavaliers team source who requested anonymity. "And she wants the Knicks. A lot of people are saying Lebron could go to Chicago, but she just isn't attracted to many of their players. And while the Clippers are a possible destination, even she has standards."
While Lebron's camp has refused to comment on the Delonte West rumors, as well as the latest rumors, it is clear he is aware of the growing story. The superstar will reportedly demand that any time he signs with then acquire Pau Gasol and Manu Ginobili, and bring Sam Cassell and Tyrone Hill out of retirement.
"He wants to play on the ugliest possible team," said a source. "But that strategy could backfire. Look at Delonte West. Ugly sex is clearly no deterrent."
There are also Internet rumors claiming Mrs. James has carried on a long-running affair with former Seattle SuperSonics mascot Squatch, as well as a basketball rack the Cavaliers use during their morning shootarounds.
