LeBron James is an amazing player on the court. He has collected a lot of accolades during his time in the NBA. But off-court, James is an even better person. Be it donating to charities, entertaining fans in interviews, or being a great husband, LeBron is an all-rounder.
Speaking of his life as a married man, he is truly an inspiration for all. He met his other half back in high school and has been with her ever since. After dating for a lot of years, the couple finally tied the knot back in 2013.
As of now, James and Savannah have three kids together and are a perfect family. But have you ever wondered what type of a person James is at his home? Sure, we have seen the Instagram stories where LBJ posts about his children and wife.
But how is he as a husband? Well, Savannah was asked this question in a 2017 interview with Lynne Thompson.
Via Cleveland Magazine:
The couple met while she was a 16-year-old sophomore at Buchtel and he was a 17-year-old junior at rival St. Vincent-St. Mary. A mutual friend who’d transferred from SVSM to Buchtel told her that LeBron had asked for her phone number.
“I’m like, ‘Um, nope. I’ll take his number,’ ” remembers Savannah, who didn’t know much about the basketball phenom at the time. “One day I’m sitting around — I was probably bored or something — and I’m like, ‘Oh, I forgot! I have this number for this guy that I can call. He seemed interested, so let’s see.’ ”
LeBron invited her to one of his basketball games, then to a local Applebee’s with a group of friends afterward. A one-on-one date at an Outback Steakhouse quickly followed. She’s been with him ever since.
“He is truly a king to his queen, if you will,” she says of the attraction. “He treats me with so much respect — I mean, it’s hard to not 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.”
In the interview, Savannah also revealed how she asked for James' number and how he is a gentleman all the time.
The power couple is the perfect example of treating each other with respect, which is undoubtedly a key ingredient in a successful marriage. We wish the couple many more years of happiness and love together.
