Miami Beach, FL – June 20, 2013 – Our Miami Heat have done it again! For the second year in a row, the Miami Heat are declared the NBA Champions, bringing home the championship trophy and rings. After an unbelievable, rare Game 7 of the NBA Finals last night, the Heat came out victorious against the San Antonio Spurs in one of the most intense series in NBA history. They defeated the Spurs 95 to 88 and went straight to STORY to kick off the celebrations with their teammates and families, and special guest Drake. LeBron James hugged Spurs player Danny Green who even came out to the celebration. One hundred bottles of Dom Perignon came out in bottle parades throughout the night to the well deserved champions. They even ordered food from Big Pink and Prime One Twelve to the club after working up quite an appetite at the game. It’s been an amazing season, and The Big Three fought hard all the way through. Stay tuned to see where they spend the rest of the weekend celebrating this huge victory. – source
It took 9 long years but LeBron James finally has his first ring!
The Miami Heat were the underdogs going into the NBA Finals series against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. But the Thunder didn’t have LeBron’s steely determination or his fiery will to win. LeBron James has won his first NBA championship and his first NBA Finals MVP, after leading the Miami Heat in a 121–106 rout of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night to win the championship in five games. James had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, a triple-double in his final masterful playoff appearance.
Great Game OKC, But Sorry This Was Miami Heat’s Year!!!!
If you are a Lebron James Fan, you’ve heard of Savannah Brinson, but it wasnt until his proposal on NYE 2012 in Miami (read story here) to his girlfriend of eight years did her name become one of the top searches on the web. Being a sucker for love stories, I wanted to find out a bit more about the future Mrs. Lebron James and found this Harper Bazaar interview in 2010 where the basketball icon’s high school sweetheart discusses life off the court and the move to Miami. According to Harper Bazaar:
Savannah Brinson, long-time girlfriend of basketball phenom LeBron James, has just finished her first major photo shoot. For this low-key girl from Akron, Ohio, it was quite the heady experience. James is used to this sort of attention, she says. She, on the other hand, is decidedly not. “I’ve always been in the background,” she says, having changed back into her white track suit with bedazzled hearts for a bowl of spaghetti at Manhattan’s Serafina restaurant. As she slowly twirls her pasta, she looks both wide-eyed and incredulous. “Now that magazines and the paparazzi are taking pictures of me, it’s kind of weird. I never thought it would get to this magnitude, but clearly I was mistaken,” she says.
Brinson, 24, had better get used to the spotlight, because the glare will only get brighter now that James has left Cleveland, his home for the past seven years, for the sunny climes of Florida. After months of serious flirtation with a handful of teams—the New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, and Chicago Bulls—James, 25, who became a free agent this July, ultimately chose the Miami Heat. Fans outside of the Sunshine State were left heartbroken and seething. He and Brinson were roundly booed in New York City recently while walking into the wedding of Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony and former MTV VJ La La Vazquez. At home, a few Cleveland Cavaliers diehards set fire to the player’s No. 23 jersey. Not exactly the cordial send-off they were expecting. “You have fans and you think they’re going to roll with you no matter what, and then they burn your jersey? It’s unfair,” Brinson says. “But they did it. It’s over.”
The couple started dating when Brinson was just 16. At first, “I had no idea who he was,” says Brinson, who is from the same neighborhood as James but was a year behind him at a rival high school, where she was a softball player and cheerleader.
Last night The Heat really did their thing on the court. The game was a big deal last night since I’m a Heat Fan and my husband is a Celtics fan. Before the game Miami Heat wives Adrienne Bosh and girfreinds Gabrielle Union and Savannah Brinson took this pix on the way to the game. The ladies look very ready to cheer on their men as they took on the Celtics. Adrienne wore a Theory stripped sweater, a black Burberry skirt that showed the start of her baby bump, Christian Louboutin heels and Celine handbag.
And shout out to our triple threat, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James in the video above. The video aired before last night’s game, which the Heat won 115-107.
