LeBron James proposes to Savannah Brinson

LeBron James proposed to his longtime girlfriend and the mother of his two children, Savannah Brinson Saturday night at a predictably lavish birthday party celebrating James turning 27 Friday. Both Chris Paul and Micky Arison tweeted their congratulations Sunday morning to the happy couple. 

Oh, and there was cake. There's always cake.

James and Brinson have been together since high school, and have two sons together, LeBron Jr. and Bryce. The engagement comes just months after James' close friend Chris Paul was married and a year after Carmelo Anthony, another close friend of James, tied the knot with LaLa Vasquez. It also comes just days after Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce from her husband Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

The decision also comes in line with a summer where James purposefully kept a low profile and has claimed that he's gotten back to "who he is" in mutiliple interviews. It seems, at least on the level James allows the public to see, that he's attempting to move away from the egotist he was portrayed as last year. 

Congratulations to the happy couple.

adamms1384 good points except the part about it being irrelevant trust me it's relevant to us!
I suppose I could have used a better choice of words, but to clarify what I meant, this thread didnt really have much to do with rings or lack there of.  LBJ made Cleveland relevant when that franchise was all but dead.  But the best help he got was jamison, mo williams, and a waaaaaaaay over the hill shaq.  Are you telling me that Cavs management did EVERYTHING they could to get another superstar in the mix?  Sorry, just cant blame the guy for leaving your city.  Not that I know the details of everything behind the scenes, but Dan Gilbert is not coming off as the greatest owner.  Personally, if I had to point a finger at someone, I would point in his direction and not LBJs.

gator83 most of your points are good but you are incorrect about the complaining part. If he would have told us/complained beforehand that he was leaving we could have traded him and atleast got something in return.
So you would like me to believe that you would have been ok with Lebron, if he had forced the Cavs to trade him several years ago. I think Cavs fans would have been just as upset. It did end up being a sign and trade deal. The Cavs ended up with 2 1st round picks and 2 2nd round picks. They also got a trade exception. Obviously not an equal deal, but they did end up getting something.

My prediction for Ms. Savannah Brinson within the next 5 years  =  CHA CHING and a guest appearance on the TV show "NBA Wives" as the ex Ms. James.

Who cares if they beat a bad Eagles team. In closing you are correct to get upset with the racial comments those are not necessary.


No. The Eagles crushed them. The Jets lost to the Giants to put the Eagles out of playoff contention. lol

It was against the Celtics that he quit, nobody disputes that the national media glossed over it because they love him. Bottom line he quit I don't care how bad it seemed or the odds at that point of the series you don't quit!

adamms1384 good points except the part about it being irrelevant trust me it's relevant to us!

zapt52 good points but he quit! No I don't need to sit and talk with him to see how he is his actions speak loud and clear for who/what he is. Your more superior comment is intersting people do not dislike him because he is a good athlete or as you said superior it's because of what he does. The Jets do suck check the standings 8-8 no playoffs means they suck. Who cares if they beat a bad Eagles team. In closing you are correct to get upset with the racial comments those are not necessary.

hey adamms ur an idiot!  Lebron did play in NBA finals with Cavs.  He had good team but gave up and bold to Miami in a childish way.  Lebron has duck feet and maybe that is why he flew south.  I hope he never wins a ring!
He finished out his contract and was a free agent. Other than Lebron, the Cavs had a very average team at best. Their biggest free agent addition was an over the hill Shaq. He thought his best chance to win a title was to come to Miami. He was a free agent, so he had every right to sign where he wanted to.

His new fiancee is has a lot of scretch marks.
Probably don't want to know, but what is a scretch mark?

If he would have left the right way nobody would have been upset. You are probably asking yourself what was the right way?
Maybe he could have complained a couple years ago and forced the Cavs to trade him, instead of waiting till he was a free agent. I guess you do not believe that there was a chance he was coming back to Cleveland You believe he lied about it being a tough decision. I would agree that it would have been better not to announce on tv, but do n ot think it is as big deal as some on her. In this day when high school kids announce on tv where they are going to college, is that surprising that Lebron would announce his decision on tv. The "dirtbag" was the reason you got to a game 6 in the playoffs. I am asuming we are talking about the series against Boston. I think he was frustrated with the lack of help he had. Boston had the better team. Lebron was the best player, but after him the next 4 best players were on Boston - Garnett, Pierce, Allen and Rondo. Much easier to beat a team, when you only have to game plan to stop 1. Does not make it right for him to quit. He handled the situation poorly.

I bet this throws his game off.  Unless he's smart enough for a pre-nup.  Then he'll be ok

Couple things.

1) albeemacaw....you're a fricken' racist. It's people like you who make this country unsafe. Land of the free. Home of the brave. How about you show a little respect for the country....butthole. Also, you're ignorant and unaware of other countries cultures and you come off as stupid. The rest of the world calls soccer, now get this, FUTBOL! Now, here are some side-notes.

a. That's a stereotype...not all Mexicans play futbol. Some play football, some play basketball, some play baseball, some play hockey, some may play ALL OF THEM, others may play NONE OF THEM.

b. Another sterotype. Believe it or not....NOT ALL JETS' FANS ARE FAT! In fact, MOST of them have jobs and have to work for people and support their families. Other people, people like you, don't have families or jobs. Their closest friends are in a club that revolves around wearing white bedsheets around town.

c. That's not how you spell "Jets". I am declaring you CLEARY UNEDUCATED (sorry for the big words). Jets is spelled like this: Jets. Not Junk. That's wrong.

d. Mark Sanchez got drafted into the NFL to be a starting quarterback. Have you ever crossed that off of your bucket list...because I've never heard of you.

2)The Jets suck. They crushed the Eagles chances of having a comeback season. Just putting that out there.

3) For all the haters getting on LeBron's weiner and calling him a douchebag, hop off. "He's a douchebag." Shut up. He's one of the best, if not the best to ever play the game. Chill out. Also, I may be wrong, but I DOUBT ANY OF YOU HAVE ACTUALLY SPENT ALONE TIME WITH HIM. Have you ever just sat down to talk with him? He could be a douchebag....but maybe, just maybe, he has feelings like a normal human being. Just because someone is more superior than you doesn't mean you hate on them.

May Le Ball end his career on an injury after his wife leaves him because she finds him in bed D Wade praising his pole? LBJ. Is your Mom in jail for DUI or in Denote West bed???  Word is that Bosch has the hots for LBJ Mom. Hell the entire 2010 Cavs team had your Mom why not your current teammates? The apple does not fall far from the tree. LBJ mother is a horror that beds his teammates.
