Riley said:

Savannah now is going to have a little baby girl to join her in the fight against the two boys and LeBron, which she needs.

4. She Likes to Design Furniture


Brinson is known for her sense of fashion not only in clothing, but in home decor. Her and James teamed up with American Signature in a collaboration to promote the brand and have Brinson become a branch off of the company. Brinson has a passion for creating furniture catered to children like her sons.

Lebron said of the line:

“The inspiration for the line came from watching LeBron Jr. and Bryce playing in their own bedroom and how much fun they have together. The most important aspect of the line’s creation is the name, Home Court. Home is where you have everything you need, exactly how you like it, similar to having a homecourt advantage in basketball. We want this line to have everything that makes a child thrilled to be in his or her room.”

Lebron knew how talented his wife is as a designer and handed her the reins on the project. The line hit stores in the fall of 2010.

Brinson said:

I designed every piece for a different reason and purpose so I love each one.”

5. She Doesn’t Love Florida or the Spotlight

Brinson is very proud of the small city in Ohio where she was born and raised. When James was transferred to Miami, she definitely had an opinion on it.

During an interview with Harper Bazaar, 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. When they told me it doesn’t get any colder than 50 degrees, that sold me. We get below-zero weather in Cleveland. … I can’t wait to have a sunny Christmas. It will definitely be an adjustment, but we’ll make it. We’re not complaining.”

She admitted she was getting used to it, but there’s no place like home.

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.”
