Lebron James Gets His Very First Ring; An Engagment Ring

Lebron James and his new wife (well not yet...just engaged)

Since entering the NBA in 2003, Miami Heat Forward, Lebron James has always been chasing the goal of winning an NBA Championship in strive of winning a ring; a championship ring.

Now while each year over and over again James failed and then failed again in Cleveland as he couldn’t win a ring he did however get very close in 2006-07 when the Cavilers made it to the NBA Finals until eventually being swept by the San Antonio Spurs. After getting swept James would play three more seasons with the Cavilers before making his famous “decision” on ESPN to take his talents to “South Beach” aka Miami.

James would join superstars, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh where they would automatically be favored as the 2010-11 NBA Champions. However despite making it to the NBA Finals yet again James would lose, except he wouldn’t be swept as they lost 4-2 to the Dallas Mavericks, but he wouldn’t reach his goal and silence the critics by getting a ring.

After losing to the Dallas Mavericks with the team that everyone thought would for sure win it, James would take a lot of criticism as some said he would never win a ring or that he would never get any sort or ring, a wedding ring, engagement ring, class ring, etc. Well just five games into the 2011-12 NBA season James has proved them all wrong as he now has his first ring…an engagement ring.

James who has been with Savannah Brinson since High School, finally popped the question to start the New Year off and didn’t choke as she said yes. “My girl, she’s very excited,” James said Sunday night after he and the Miami Heat beat Charlotte 129-90. “She would love to answer more questions about it than me. But she’s happy, my family’s happy and that’s what it’s about.”

This engagement means that James will soon be getting another ring as come the Wedding time the ring bear will bring Lebron ring number two shying the great Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant of just a couple. However he can’t get too excited yet as no wedding date as been planned yet.

Now all jokes aside, imagine if Brinson said no? I guess it would just be fate right there that Lebron would never have a ring. I mean, several chances in Cleveland, two All-Stars in Miami, but the key to his success to getting a ring had been there all along; it was his longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson that would get him that very first ring.

Congratulations to you Lebron and to your family, however to bad Brinson won’t be able to help you get your first NBA Championship ring… or help you prevent another fourth quarter meltdown…or close out a game…actually she probably could if she was able to play for you.
