LeBron James is an NBA champion, and his family couldn’t be happier. The Miami ‘Heat’ star delivered several shots that led his team to victory over the Oklahoma City ‘Thunder’ on Thursday, June 21, 2012. Fiancee Savannah Brinson along with the couple’s sons, LeBron Jr.,7, and Bryce,5, were there to cheer as James dunked his way to victory. LeBron and Savannah are set to wed next Summer. The couple became engaged in December 2011 after several years of courtship.
When asked about the championship win LeBron said, “It means everything. I made a difficult decision to leave Cleveland but I understood what my future was about … I knew we had a bright future (in Miami). This is a dream come true for me. This is definitely when it pays off.”
James decided to take a spot on the Miami ‘Heat’ in 2010 after playing for the Cleveland ‘Cavaliers.’ His exact words were, “I’m going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat.” Savannah and the children joined James a year later, where they still reside in a suburban area of Magic City.
