NBA superstar Lebron James, Crown Royal and NIKE presented the LeBron 11/11 Experience in Miami over the weekend. Crown Royal and NIKE took over a parking deck on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach and turned it into a playground and more for the launch of Lebron's new basketball shoe. NIKE presented a history of LeBron's shoes and the evolution of the superstar himself.
King James, as his fans call him, took questions from kids and signed autographs. NIKE debuted the new commercial that was shot a few weeks ago on South Beach. Also in the house were LeBron's wife, Savannah James, and mother, Gloria James, Gloria's boyfriend Da Real Lambo, NBA veteran Kenny Smith, actor Terrence J, super producer Pharell Williams, and socialite Teyanna Taylor, who maintains homes in Miami and Atlanta.
Everyone knows how much Miami Heat superstar LeBron James Loves his mother Gloria. But one person who may not be fond of Gloria is James' new bride, Savannah. Without going into too much detail, Savannah steadfastly refused to pose in any photographs with LeBron and his mother at the LeBron Experience. According to an insider, while LeBron lavished attention on his mom, Savannah kept a comfortable distance from Gloria the whole time she was there.
I don't blame Savannah for being standoffish. The Bible says "man shall leave his mother and father and cleave unto his wife, and the two of them shall be as one flesh."
Now that he's a man, LeBron should learn to always put his wife first. But it seems LeBron is still stuck in his old ways.
At one point, NBA veteran and basketball analyst Kenny Smith (pictured above left) asked him, "How many rings you got James?" When LeBron answered, "two," Kenny admonished him. "No, man, you're married now; so you have three [rings]." Savannah leaped up out of her seat, as if to say "HALLELUJER!"
LeBron tried to explain: "Man, weve been together for so long it's not much difference. I'm glad to be able to give her that title, that security..."
Though he's married now, LeBron is finding it difficult to leave his mother and cleave unto his wife. But that's part of being a good husband. If he wasn't ready to fully leave his mother, he should not have married Savannah.
