Dwyane Wade Assisted LeBron James in Marriage Proposal

LBJ made good use of his teammate DWade before proposing to his longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson on New Year’s Eve, reports Fox Sports: “My girl, she’s really excited,” said James, who entered the night as the NBA’s leading scorer with a 33 average and scored 12 points in the second half to finish with 16. ‘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 all about … It should be a surprise. For any woman, any time something like that happens, she was surprised.’ James might not have been long on details. But teammates Wade and Bosh were quite willing to talk about the evening. Wade’s job was hold the ring. He finally got his assist shortly after midnight. ‘Trying to catch her off guard, obviously,’ Wade said of the tactics used by James, who has been dating Brinson since they were at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio, a decade ago and who has children, LeBron Jr., 7, and Bryce, 4, with her. ‘They’ve been together for a while. I’m sure they had many discussions of marriage and the possibility. So I thought he did a good job of catching her when she least expected it even if she did expect it. He kind of caught her in a moment right after New Year’s after we all did the countdown when everybody was (yelling), ‘Happy New Year.’ Then he got her. So it was good. To me, it felt like he was on his knee for an hour. It probably was like 35 seconds. It was great.’ Bosh said about 10 players were on hand for the moment, which he called ‘beautiful.’ The event also was a celebration of James’ 27th birthday, which was Friday. It featured a large rum cake adorned with edible 18-carat lions and Swarovski crystals. James wore a black tuxedo with a bowtie and black glasses. Brinson donned a black dress. With all this excitement the night before, it might have been easy for Miami to have come out flat. But that was hardly the case as the Heat raised their record to 5-0 for the first time in the team’s 24-year history.”

    gotta get this out of my system: if a ring is involved, LeBron just can’t do it alone.

    According to ESPN Bosh didn’t know Bron was proposing. Wade was part of the proposal, and Bosh didn’t know about it. If i was part of the media i’d be writing about how the heat don’t have what it takes to win cuz bosh wasn’t told about the engagement beforehand and wade was. Congrats LeBron, but like Kanye said, if you ain’t no punk holla “we want prenup”
