LeBron James is getting a ring… although it may not be the NBA Championship ring he hoped for. The Miami Heat star proposed to his long time girlfriend Savanah Brinson on New Years Eve. Brinson showed off her engagement ring at the Heat- Atalanta Hawks game.
LeBron is offering little details saying, “She would love to answer more questions about it than me. But she’s happy, my family’s happy and that’s what it’s all about. . . It should be a surprise. For any woman, any time something like that happens, she was surprised.”
Dwyane Wade was in charge of holding the ring for LeBron, and unlike his teammate, Wade dished on the proposal.
“He kind of caught her in a moment right after New Year’s after we all did the countdown when everybody was (yelling), ‘Happy New Year.’ Then he got her. So it was good. To me, it felt like he was on his knee for an hour. It probably was like 35 seconds. It was great.”
Brinson and James have been dating since high school and have two children together. Congrats to the Happy Couple!
With no end in sight to the NBA lockout, players are turning to the dance floor.
Ron Artest has been confirmed as the newest contestant on Dancing With The Stars, and it looks like he will not be the only NBA player to be competing during the lock out…. CBS Sports is reporting Dwyane Wade is also to be in the running to win the Crystal Ball Trophy.
Fellow athlete and former winner Hines Ward confirmed the rumors and told Sports Radio Interviews: “I don’t know, but I did hear rumors and his name did come up. I also heard Ron Artest too.”
The official lineup will be announced after tomorrow’s episode of The Bachelor Pad. No word yet if Wade joins the cast LeBron and Chris Bosh will come as a packaged deal.
Today marks the one year anniversary of LeBron James’ Decision, when he announced in an ESPN special he would be taking his talents to South Beach and would sign with the Miami Heat.
Those six words embarked furry on the entire nation, after LeBron left his hometown team the Cleveland Cavaliers in the dusk! But in a recent survey by the Miami News, not even Florida likes him. According to Public Policy Polling, only 22% of Floridians like LeBron and only 14% of people identified the Miami Heat as their favorite Florida sports team. The Heat were not even the most well liked team in Miami, with the Dolphins taking 16% of the vote.
While LeBron doesn’t have the biggest fan base in the Sunshine state, the survey said that only 24 percent have an unfavorable opinion, while 54 percent are unsure. Lucky for LeBron, when he wakes up he is still LeBron James, and we all have the same problems.
It look likes Dwyane Wade has gotten over the NBA Finals loss with the help of George Clooney’s ex. Wade and model-actress Elisabetta Canalis were spotted at the Dsquared2 fashion show in Italy. The couple sat front row in matching denim attire. Despite Wade’s longtime girlfriend Gabrielle Union, PerezHilton reported that Wade and Canalis were very flirty with eachother.
It’s a good thing Wade is used to rebounding, Canalis and boyfriend George Clooney broke up after two years of dating this week. A statement was released by US Weekly saying: “We are not together anymore…It’s very difficult and very personal and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.”
Could Canalis be the next jersey chaser of the month?
