The NBA legend proposed to his beloved in 2011 and 2 years later, over 100 guests witnessed them saying their "I do’s" and joining their lives together.

Savannah Brinson and LeBron James are raising 3 kids together:

  • LeBron James Jr.;
  • Bryce Maximus;
  • and Zhuri.

LeBron Jr., who has been nicknamed Bronny, has already been following in his dad’s footsteps. However, he plays in two positions: a shooting guard and a point guard, while his father is a forward.

James’ second son, Bryce Maximus, is also interested in having a career in basketball. According to LeBron himself, Bryce is the best shooter in the house.

LeBron’s youngest child, daughter Zhuri, is too little to show any basketball skills. However, it appears that she is a kin cook and a rising YouTube star.

With such a cool family, there is nothing LeBron James can’t do but we are certain that his biggest achievement is not his successful sports career but his super-talented children.
