MIAMI — LeBron James and longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson are engaged.

A representative for James confirmed the news to The Associated Press on Sunday morning, a few hours after close friend Chris Paul and Miami Heat owner Micky Arison were among those tweeting their congratulations.

The Miami Heat forward popped the question to his high school sweetheart on Saturday night, doing so at a party to celebrate both New Year's Eve and his 27th birthday, which was Friday.

James and Brinson are the parents of two sons.

No wedding date was announced. James and the Heat were playing host to the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday.

Indeed.  Our folks just seem to focus more on the ones who marry outside of Black.  ::)

B4L, I wish them well to.  And as YOgi loves to say   ...that's all.

More than 80% of all Black professional athletes are married to Black women. Why the surprise? :shrug:

like it or not, sistas have HUGE public image problem. unfortunately, a disproportionate amount of them are overweight and dont care that they are fat.  i just wish more would do better in terms of eating less, working out more and not being the the poster children for hair weaves and bad attitudes.

I wouldn't care either, whom or what they married.  They wouldn't care for Michael if he was working at the plant but that is what it is. As long as these spouses or friends don't have the completion of the mother, theys arrived. That Great White Hope  line was " dey know I ain't on black no mo." Juanita should have got him for that dough.   :lmao: :read:

..............forgive me, bruh, but an internet medium such as onnidan may not be the appropriate place to seek psychological assistance for the longstanding issues you have concerning the women in your family.

But I DO wish you well, sir.  :(
Title: LeBron James Engaged to High School Sweet Heart...

LeBron James Engaged: King Gives His Queen Huge Rock of Ice

(http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2012/stylewatch/blog/120116/savannah-brinson-300x400.jpg)

If you ever need confirmation on the amount of love LeBron James has for his fiancee Savannah Brinson, you can just look at the several pounds of ice on her hand.

BlackSportsOnline reports on some telling photos featuring the soon-to-be Mrs. LeBron James rocking a very sizable heart-shaped diamond.

The ring, pictured below, is just one sign of how much affection the Heat star has for his high school sweetheart. The other is the manner in which he proposed to Brinson, the mother of his two children.

The LA Times has a breakdown on the evening that was meant to celebrate James' 27th birthday. King James chose that moment to share another beautiful moment in his life with close friends.

James got down on one knee and popped the question to his long-time girlfriend. Instead of the tremendous look-at-me moment that took place a year before in his decision to move to the Heat, James chose a much more intimate setting.

The King has grown up. It is just one reason why fans have laid off the outpouring of derision that followed him since he headed to Miami.

The Heat are on a tear right now, and it has to be attributed to the cohesive nature that is being set. Like brothers, James welcomed his teammates to watch his momentous occasion.

That is the kind of setting that fans can get behind. With that being said, James chose correctly in making the engagement ring the one thing he went overboard on.

Every woman will tell you that there is no size too big when it comes to engagement bling. I expect we will see a whole lot more of this ring on the sidelines. I just don't know how you can ever miss it.
