Ever since the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted LEBRON James as the number 1 overall pick in 2003, he has been a prominent figure in the NBA. As he embarks on his 20th season in the league, fans are curious about his personal life, particularly his family.
LeBron James joined the Lakers team in 2018 and despite his busy schedule with the Los Angeles Lakers, he remains a dedicated family man. Throughout the years, he has been a proud father to three children including LeBron James Jr.
Bronny, also known as LeBron Raymone James Jr., was born on October 6, 2004 in Cleveland, Ohio. He has followed in his father’s footsteps and has made a name for himself in high school basketball. Currently enrolled at Sierra Canyon School in Los Angeles, Bronny has his sights set on the big leagues. As a member of the Class of 2023, he has received numerous offers from NCAA schools such as Ohio State, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, and UCLA, according to his ESPN bio. Ranking at number 34 on ESPN’s Top 100 list, Bronny has signed endorsement deals with Nike and Beats by Dre. Another one of LeBron James’ sons, Bryce Maximus James, also shows potential in basketball.
Bryce Maximus James, the younger brother of LeBron James, was born in 2007 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Following in the footsteps of his father and older brother, Bryce has also made a name for himself as an exceptional basketball player. Although he may not have the same level of fame as his brother, he is still considered one of the top players in the country and has even received an offer from Duquesne, as stated in his ESPN bio. Bryce is expected to graduate in 2025 and recently signed with Klutch Sports for NIL representation in December 2022. Additionally, there is also Zhuri Nova James, the youngest child of the James family, who is still young but already showing potential for greatness.
Zhuri Nova James was welcomed into the world on the 22nd of October in 2014, in Cuyahoga Falls. While athletics may not be her forte, the 8-year-old is a well-known social media influencer. She frequently shares photos with her over 409,000 Instagram followers and creates videos for her more than 204,000 YouTube subscribers. As she is still young, her parents manage all her social media accounts. LeBron James has been married to his high school sweetheart, Savannah Brinson, since 2013. Although they attended different schools, they met when he was 17 and she was 16 after a mutual friend told Savannah that LeBron had asked for her phone number. “I declined. I took his number instead,” she told Cleveland Magazine in 2018. After forgetting about it for a while, she eventually called him. Even though Savannah knew very little about LeBron’s basketball skills, she supported him from the very beginning. “Savannah was with me shooting in the gym when I [had] absolutely nothing,” LeBron said to The Hollywood Reporter in 2018. “She was down when I was at my high school, no cameras, no lights. And she was there with me. You wouldn’t be talking to me right now if it weren’t for her.” Savannah was born on the 27th of August in 1986 in Akron, Ohio, to JK and Jennifer Brinson. In 2018, she launched a furniture line alongside American Signature called Home Court. She also established a mentorship program named Women of Our Future. “He is truly a king to his queen if you will,” Savannah expressed to Cleveland Magazine about her spouse. “He treats me with so much respect — I mean, it’s hard not to love him with the way that he is with me and the kids and his mom and just everyone who’s around him. He’s a really, really humble guy for everything that he has and everything that he’s done.”
Savannah James and LeBron James are proud parents to three children. The basketball prodigy decided to forgo college and jump straight into the NBA, a risk that paid off both in terms of his game and his financial status. Known as “King James,” he’s widely regarded as one of the all-time greatest players in the sport. Thanks to his incredible success, he’s amassed an impressive fortune and was officially declared a billionaire in June 2022, becoming the first current NBA player to achieve this feat, according to Forbes. This achievement was made possible by his over $385 million in earnings from salary, along with an estimated $900 million in endorsements and various business ventures, as per Forbes.
