Oh yeah, you heard it right. The new year night was indeed a special one for Lebron James as it turned out to be the night of his engagement day as well.
The basketball superstar was in a long-term relationship with his girlfriend-Savannah Brinson. Savannah is apparently the mother of Lebron’s two children as well-both boys names, LeBron Jr.(7 years old) and Bryce(4 years old). They both are together since high school days. The engagement happened during a NYE new year party at the Shelbourne South Year’s SL nightclub, situated in Miami. The Hear owner of Miami posted a tweet regarding this news saying” Congrats to Lebron. @KingJames and Savannah so happy 4 u guys. ”
The news was confirmed by a representative of James to THE Associated Press on the 1st of January 2012. In fact, just after a few hours of this news, the couple were congratulated by close friend Chris Paul along with Miami Heat owner Micky Arison over twitter. Apparently, the new year’s eve was also the 27th birthday of James. Adnd that’s not all, just a day before, Lebron had a winning day where he score 34 points, including 8 rebounds and 10 assists that helped Heat to win against Minnesota with a score of 103-101; sounds to be the perfect occasion to propose. However, the wedding date is yet to be announced.
Well, we must admit that any publicity that leads to an increase in the general public’s respect for this basketball superstar’s commitment is surely gold. While, on one side, the whole world of sports saw how their heroes-Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant cheated on their wives, the case is totally opposite in the case of James. Obviously, there was no stake of improving his image, but it was nice and unintended consequence on James’ part to do so. But the funny part is-when other superstars in the same field does something stupid( we’re talking about Woods and Bryant), news like this of LeBron automatically make s him look like a good guy. As per the info provided by ESPN, LeBron so wishes to be like Mike on and off the court.
LeBron was brought up in Akron-a place situated at a distance of approximately 45 minutes from the city of Cleveland. Surely, LeBron is a hometown hero for the Cavaliers’ fans. And Lebron never led them down. He took his team from league laughing stock to one of the championship contenders. And he deserves all the credit. And the times were not always smooth for this couple. Earlier, like rumors had it that rashard Lewis had slept with Brinson; they both fought up the tough times together and are not happily engaged, thereby closing down the shutters of all the rumors.
The engagement of Lebron James is not the only engagement in news recently. Michael Jordan also got engaged over the Christmas weekend with his girlfriend Yvette Prieto, who is said to be almost 16 years younger than him. Well, love makes you do weird things-nothing new.
