LeBron's girlfriend not thrilled with move to Miami

LeBron James is "taking his talents to South Beach," but that doesn't mean his longtime girlfriend was part of "The Decision."

Savannah Brinson, mother of James' two sons, told Harper's Bazaar: "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. It will definitely be an adjustment, but we'll make it. We're not complaining. Whatever LeBron felt was comfortable, I'm with him. I just love him so much. We're soul mates."

Sending out a mixed message by wearing a Miami Heat jersey for photos taken against a backdrop of the Empire State Building in the city in which James will not be playing, she adds that the two, who met in Akron, will not be getting married any time soon. "I've definitely not put a fire under his [butt]. I would never rush him to do something like that. We're really comfortable with the way things are now. And it's not up to me. When it happens, it happens. We talk about it. If we do it, I want it to be forever."

LeBron's take on the situation? "A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And she's that. She's got my back, and I love her for that."

And when that hoop gig has run its course, Mr. James surely could take his talents to Hallmark as a Valentine's Day greeting card writer.
