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.

I'm surprised there wasn't another "Decision" for this.  Wonder if Delonte West and Lebron's mother will be invited to the wedding.  Fortunately for Lebron, Brinson is too young for Delonte.

I hope she gets SOMETHING in the pre-nup!  You already know after a few years he is going to Skype her and tell her that he's taking his talents to some girl in a different location because he somehow felt unloved by someone who bent over backwards for him giving him every little thing he wanted so he wouldn't puff up like the 5 yr old he is emotionally!!  Then later tell everyone that he never liked her because she changed the seat settings in his car one time when they were still engaged and has not liked her since then!!!

I see the bitter Cavs fans have nothing to do today with the Brownies going to the toilet bowl again.

p;     I feel for Ms. Brinson because she has to live with him and he is nothing but a dirtbag who only cares about himself. The Heat are winning this year because they are putting the ball in Wade's hands at the end of the game and not James. I have nothing good to say about this punk because he was treated like a King by the Cavs fans and he thru it in their face when he announced that he was headed to South Beach. The fans in Cleveland burned his uniforms that they bought and they had every right to because he never even gave them a chance to resign him. James, Wade, and Bosh had plans years before about playing together on the same team and it centered on Wade. If Wade had decided to play in his homeTown of Chicago, they would be Bulls players instead of Heat players. Wade instead decided to stay loyal to the Heat so he got Bosh and James to come to Miami. I will continue to root against those three players for the rest of my life!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

LOL, agreed, but it's you I'm laughing at. So what he cheated on her when they were in High School. Who doesn't cheat in High School? You must have been one of those guys that got NO PLAY? I hate this word, but stop HATING! Get over it already. He left the Cavs, life goes on. Or at least it does for those that have a life. Durant, a better player?? Fool, please. I know Bron has his flaws, but so does Durant. He's not the passer, or rebounder that Bron is. Plus LBJ is a better defender. It's ok to not be a fan of someone, but don't let that dislike blind your judgement. The only time Griffin is more exciting is when he's catching an alley oop!

Thank you, IndiansFFan for a great laugh to start the New Year!!

What a joke...  In high school he cheated on her like it was his job.  Getting married to try and keep up with other players, nice job dirtbag!  Egoist all the way every day.  It is great watching Derrick Rose sign the bigger shoe contracts and seeing his higher level of popularity in China.  Durant is the better player, Griffin is more exciting to watch, and even Wade has more hardware. 

Thank you cbs for a good laugh to start the new year!
