When you hear the “King” of the NBA, whose name comes to mind? LeBron James, right?
His dominance in the game made him on the list of Greatest of All Time (GOAT) together with Michael Jordan.
A King surely has a Queen, a Prince, or a Princess.
Continue reading my article to know more about the LeBron James family, the James Gang.
Who Comprises The James Family?
LeBron James has a family of five members.
He was married to his high school girlfriend, Savannah James, who currently helps him raise their three children.
Bronny James is their eldest, Bryce James is the middle child, and Zhuri James is the youngest.
The James Gang reunion in the NBA has a big probability of happening. Both his sons Bronny and Bryce are also building a name for themselves in the basketball world.
1. LeBron James
LeBron Raymone James is an active NBA player for the Los Angeles Lakers.
LeBron’s mother, Gloria James, was only 16 years old when she gave birth to the NBA superstar in Akron, Ohio, in America, on December 30, 1984. King James had a hard time growing up.
They were forced to transfer to different places because his mother struggled to land a stable job. Eventually, LeBron stayed with a local football coach who started his basketball journey.
Since he got drafted first overall in 2003, he has played in a few NBA teams and these include the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat. He has also been a Nike endorser since.
From June 2018 until now, LeBron James found Los Angeles home to continue his mission.
He has already won 4 NBA championships in his whole career, all of which he has earned the NBA Finals MVP. Aside from that, he also holds the NBA record of “Most Career Points in Playoffs.”
Now, he will be playing his 20th season in the league. LeBron James is very vocal that he wants to play with his eldest son Bronny before he retires.
2. Savannah James
Lebron’s Queen, Savannah Brinson-James, was born on the 27th of August 1986, also in Cleveland. Savannah’s parents are JK Jennifer Brinson.
One remarkable photo of the couple you can see online is when they posed for a photo in front of a Porsche car. It is like Lebron James is whispering something in Savannah’s ear.
Despite her husband’s wealth and fame, she also made a name for herself as a businesswoman and philanthropist.
LeBron’s wife, Savannah James, is the owner and in-house Creative Director of her furniture brand called “Home Court.”
She is also connected to different luxury brands like Chrome Hearts. Aside from that, Savannah is very hands-on in looking after their growing children.
May it be in June, September, October, or any month, she is always present to watch his boys play basketball.
3. Bronny James
LeBron Raymone James Jr. is the eldest son of LeBron James, who was born on October 6, 2004. In the NBA, “Point God,” Chris Paul is his godfather.
Like his father’s best bud, Bronny plays as a combo guard for his high school team at Sierra Canyon School.
You can search for photos and videos online of LeBron James being present in a high school gym watching his sons play.
After turning 18 in October 2022, Bronny is expected by everybody to fulfill his father’s dream of playing together after the 2023 NBA Draft.
4. Bryce James
Bryce Maxymus James is the middle child of Lebron and Savannah James.
He was born on June 14, 2007, in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, and is also playing basketball. Recently, he played alongside his brother Bronny for California Basketball Club (CBC).
This tandem made LeBron James proud and emotional. He tweeted about it on his Twitter account.
As this second son of LeBron James continues to improve, he is projected to be eligible for the 2026 NBA draft.
5. Zhuri James
Like Bryce, Zhuri Nova James was also born in Cleveland. She also has the same October birth month as his brother Bronny as she was born on October 22, 2014.
But, Zhuri was the family member hidden from the world until the transitional moment when the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Finals.
The squad won three straight games to complete a comeback from a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors.
Now, at a young age, Lebron’s daughter already has a successful YouTube endeavor. LeBron James and his wife Savannah fully support her channel called “All Things Zhuri.”
How Did LeBron James And Savannah Brinson Get Together?
LeBron James and Savannah Brinson-James were high school sweethearts.
LeBron won his wife’s heart when they met in 2002 at Jame’s school St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.
King James was already a rising star. She saw Savannah at a football game in the said school. Unlike the familiar love stories, Savannah James made the big move to the King.
When she knew from a friend that LeBron was asking for her number, she asked for James’ number instead.
Years later, Lebron and his wife Savannah during New Year’s Eve in 2011. They then tied the knot last 2013.
Before their marriage, they already had two sons – Bronny and Bryce. One year after their wedding is when Savannah James gave birth to their daughter Zhuri.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The LeBron James gang, indeed, is a dope family. I will answer other questions below about why this squad is great.
Where Is LeBron’s Family From?
Lebron spent his earlier years in the neighborhood of Akron, Ohio, USA. However, life was not good back then as they struggled to search for a permanent home.
His mother, Gloria Marie James, also has difficulty finding a stable income. Lebron’s father had a bad criminal record and never got involved in the NBA superstar’s life.
At a young age, Gloria agreed to let Lebron live with a football coach named Frank Walker.
He was then introduced to basketball, which is when his story flourished.
Does Bronny James Make Money?
At the young age of 17 years old, Bronny James is already a Millionaire.
Bronny reached a $10 million net worth, not because of his father’s wealth. It is via partnerships, advertisements, and his social media account.
He recently signed with an e-sports team named FazeClan, helping him gather more audience for his name and contents.
Aside from that, his high following on social media also gets him cash in the bank. He currently has about 7 million followers getting him more advertisements for his content.
Are the Kids in Space Jam LeBron’s Real Kids?
Is the LeBron James family in Space Jam?
No, the kids in the July 2021 movie Space Jam are not LeBron’s.
At first glance, you may think that three kids, Bronny, Bryce, and Jhuri, are in the movie. But, they are actors being cast who look like them.
Due to his fictional and real family’s similar looks, LeBron even shared he almost brought the former home.
Overall, LeBron’s family is full of talented and hardworking people.
His wife, Savannah James, is also working on her own. Their sons are following in the basketball footsteps of their dad, while their daughter already earns at a young age.
Last September 2022, they had a family photo shoot. The picture presents Lebron, Savannah, Bronny, Bryce, Zhuri, LeBron’s mother, and Savannah’s parents.
LeBron is eyeing his 5th ring win and possible 5th NBA Finals MVP in the next regular season.
Bronny is nearing his draft year. Soon, we may see an NBA basketball father-and-son tandem or rivalry.
