If internal team problems weren’t an issue… now this.
Gloria James, the mother of Miami Heat basketball star LeBron James, was detained by Miami Beach police after she allegedly battered a valet parking staff member because it was taking too much time to have her car delivered. After practice on Thursday, when inquired about the event, LeBron James said he was being assisted with the situation and called it a personal issue. Officers said Gloria James had a strong whiff of alcohol on her breath and her eyes were bloodshot when the law arrived at the Fontainebleau Hotel. The Police said that a number of witnesses were present during the incident. Vegas odds.
Gloria James was taken to the Miami Beach police department, where she was issued a promise to appear on charges of unruly behavior. “It’s very sensitive because it’s your mother, of course,” LeBron James said Thursday after practice. “People around me are helping me, helping her.”
James said he was at home at the time of his mother’s arrest after dealing with Miami’s 90-85 loss at home to the Milwaukee Bucks.
King James’ mom was arrested on drunken driving charges in 2006 in Akron, Ohio. She was given a suspended ruling, fined and ordered to complete a drug and alcohol class, followed by speeding, disorderly conduct and physical control of a motor vehicle under the influence of liqueur. Betting lines.
LeBron James took nearly seven questions from reporters about his mother’s issue before he asked that he is focused only on basketball-related matters, as the Heat get ready for Friday’s home game versus the Charlotte Bobcats. The big problem for the Heat is Dwyane Wade’s doubtful condition. D-Wade missed Wednesday’s game with a deep right thigh bruise. “The Flash” was on Thursday’s practice and will be going through medical exams before Friday’s game.
Dealing with injuries and off-court problems is something usual for the Heat, who have had to decrease the level disturbance during the whole season. Sports scores.
