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 7 years without a championship is not bliss. If he would have left the right way nobody would have been upset. You are probably asking yourself what was the right way? He should have said from the beginning he was going and secondly he should have stayed off television to announce it. In closing he is a dirtbag for quitting in game 6 of the playoffs watch the tape if you don't believe me.
He is literally the ONLY reason why that team had such a great 7 year run in the first place.  Whether you guys won a championship or not is irrelevant.  All the attention was on your city and your team, all because of James.  He could have done better with the way he announced it (which he has publicly admitted to), but if thats the worst off the court decision he has made, then wow.  Good for him...

As far as that game 6 goes, I'll be honest I probably don't remember it as vividly as cavs fans may but did he not put up some ridiculous numbers?  You are referring about when he played the celtics, correct?  I understand the angst, but just face it.  He did not have the help to compete consistently for a title.  Now he does.

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!  His new fiancee is has a lot of scretch marks.
And they got absolutely blasted by the Spurs because it was a ONE MAN team.  They got to the finals in a pathetic eastern conference and had a hilariously easy road to it.  (Washington, New Jersey, Detroit)  And that was in 06-07 season.  He still stayed with his team for 3 years after that.  So genius, he STAYED with the team.  He didnt give up, he played out his contract.  Your point makes zero sense, congrats.

This time she forgives him because he offers her a ring.  We all know he has no loyalty.  You think he can keep "little" LeBron restrained?  18 months or less and Savannah will be getting a call from Kobe's ex to console her.  LeBron is about LeBron.  Douchebag. 
You do realize he gave your crappy sports city of cleveland 7 years of bliss while not once demanding a trade?  Sounds like he was loyal to me.  Blame Dan Gilbert and team management for not surrounding him with any talent.  Oh wait, they got Mo Williams.  Awesome.

May his marriage fail and may she take him for ½ of everything he is worth. May she implant a knife in his back like he did to the city ofCleveland. She better be very leery of him fleeing her for a younger woman after he is eligible. I give La Trader credit for at least finding a woman from his own race. The brothers give about as much attention as they do to their children and child alimony. They say Fathers Day is the most confusing day in a black Childs life.  They have a better chance of winning the lottery then actually seeing (or finding for that matter) their blood father. Sad and these are the words of a black woman that I work w/ that is a single Mom.
May his marriage fail?  And people accuse LeBron of being the dirtbag.

He's gonna end up like Kobe in 10 years but if this makes him happy then more power to him. Gonna be a little tougher to enjoy all the women in Miami after games now lol.

dopper0189 you are wrong how can you like a guy like this who has made numerous off the court bad decisions? Getting married is a good decision if he's going to do the right thing which he has not for years (having kids when not married, the decision etc.) He has also made bad on the court decisions like quitting in a game 6 playoff game.

Nice to see you doing the right thing. Hating you on the court has nothing to do with what you do off the court. Good luck!
