By now, everyone has seen the picture of Gloria James coming to the rescue of her famous son, Lebron in game 4 of the playoffs between the Celtics and the Cavaliers. This incident took place on Monday, May 12 at the "Q" in Cleveland. Apparently Gloria James had had enough of the rough stuff on her son, first from the Wizards and now from the Celtics so she decided to take matters into her own hands. As her son was wrestled out of bounds on the receiving end of a hard foul, Gloria James rushed to Lebron's aid. In frustration, son said to mother words to the effect of, "Sit your sweet ass down!"
Tsk, tsk, tsk! This on the day after Mother's Day? What's a mother to do?
Well, since Lebron was not going to let her be his enforcer and protector, Gloria James turned her attention to another sport in town that may also be in need of her coaching talents and services. Besides, she knew she had some family business to take care of with the Cleveland Indians, especially after Lebron's faux pas during the Indians' playoffs with the Yankees last year.
So, mother James found herself coaching C.C. Sabathia out of the funk that he was in...Thanks Gloria!
Recently, she has been seen working with injured closer Joe Borowski as he makes his way back to the line-up from the disabled list.
