Lebron Praises Wife as Most ‘Important’ Person in his Career
By Brandon Simmons
As much praise that Lebron James gets on the court, he deserves just as much when off of it. The Cleveland Cavalier has pretty much led his life as a standup guy whether it be as a family man or just in his marriage. Monday, he joined his teammates, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye as well as Cavaliers sideline reporter for their podcast called Road Trippin. James talked about a variety of topics that even included crying during The Lion King. Later in the recording, James touched on pursuit of being an all-time great player but offered some kind words to his wife:
“I am addicted to the process. I’m addicted to the process. It’s so funny. I just told my wife the other day, I apologized to her. She was like ‘What are you apologizing for?’ I said ‘Because the journey that I’m on to want to be the greatest to ever play this game or to the point where no one ever forgets what I accomplished, I’ve at times lost the fact of how important you are to this whole thing. … I want you to understand that along this journey while I’m playing this game there will be times that I lose the fact of how important you and my three kids are – my babies are.’ ”
And just like that, Lebron James has put every man to shame without even trying to do so. The fact that he put his wife on that type of pedestal is very noble during these times. Media outlets are quick to run with the stories of athletes getting caught up with side chicks and multiple baby mamas. Lebron and his wife, Savannah, have been together since his high school days and have 3 kids together. For once in a while, it’s great to hear the story of the guy who is doing the right thing. Many sports fans might not truly experience the road to athletic superstardom, but after hearing plenty of those stories they understand that players rarely make it without some sort of support system, no matter how good they are.
