This morning I received an email from Harper’s Bazaar. The publicist was touting an upcoming story on LeBron James’ longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson. She is also the mother of his two young sons. In the article she talks about the move to Miami and her love for the NBA superstar. Brinson said “Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is great: You go for three days and get some sun, and it’s time to go home,” she explains. “It will definitely be an adjustment, but we’ll make it. We’re not complaining. Whatever LeBron felt was comfortable, I’m with him. I just love him so much. We’re soul mates.” As I read on James describes his take on the relationship. He said “A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And she’s that,” he says. “She’s got my back, and I love her for that.” So he views Brinson as his sidekick. When I think sidekick I think Batman and Robin, The Lone Ranger and Tonto, but sidekick generally is not a term one would use to describe a soulmate. When questioned about the possibility of marriage Brinson said “I’ve definitely not put a fire under his ass. I would never rush him to do something like that. We’re really comfortable with the way things are now. And it’s not up to me. When it happens, it happens. We talk about it. If we do it, I want it to be forever.” It is up to Brinson and James to determine if marriage is right for them, but why would you have to “put a fire under someone’s ass” to get them to marry you? How many women are sidekicks without knowing it? At least Brinson knows where she stands. To read the whole story: http://www.harpersbazaar.com/lebron.
