They say behind every great man is a great woman and Savannah James is the perfect example. While she is known as the wife of NBA superstar LeBron James, she is also the backbone of their family. The high school sweethearts share three children together, Bronny, 17, Bryce, 15, and Zhuri, 7. Their Vanity Fair Oct 2022 spread showed the Jameses glammed up in their home with many photos showing them wearing matching outfits which sent social media into a tizzy.
To Savannah and Zhuri looking fabulous poolside to their whole family including Savannah’s parents and LeBron’s mom rocking matching PJs in what appeared to be their outdoor living space, the James family ain’t one to play with when it comes to style. In fact, every time the Women of Our Future mentorship program founder or Zhuri posts their latest fashions or hairstyles on social media, fans eat it up.
In the past, the 36-year-old entrepreneur has said that she isn’t keen on being in the spotlight, however, her kids seem to be following in their famous dad’s footsteps.
“With LeBron being their dad, it’s just automatic,” she told Vanity Fair. “It’s not something we’ve pushed or told them that they had to do, or anything like that. It just happened.”
And as a mother, she seems to be encouraging her children’s gifts as each one has been gaining popularity for different reasons.
“Everything isn’t for everybody,” she said. “Excuse my language, but we a dope family.”
Below are a few reasons why the James kids are dope indeed.
Bronny James, who will be turning 18 in October, plays for Sierra Canyon, which has become a popular basketball destination for high schoolers. LeBron has said many times in the press that he wants to be able to play with his son in the NBA and according to Savannah, Bronny is “getting to a place to start to make decisions about his career and where he wants to go in his life.” The teenager hasn’t committed to playing for a college just yet but when it does there’s bound to be pandemonium.
While Bryce James is also expected to continue on the path to basketball, Savannah revealed that he is “the mystery of the family.” But if King James has it his way, he may play with both sons in the league. The Lakers star alluded to wanting to play with Bryce, who is also on the Sierra Canyon basketball team, in an interview with Sports Illustrated. "I feel like I could play for quite a while. So it's all up to my body, but more importantly, my mind. If my mind can stay sharp and fresh and motivated, then the sky's not even a limit for me. I can go beyond that. But we shall see," he said.
At just 7 years old, Zhuri James has garnered 400k followers on Instagram with her page @allthingszhuri. Her page features adorable photos with her family as well as beauty, art, and cooking posts. She also has a YouTube channel with the same name that shows her engaging in fun activities such as baking, potting plants, and doing yoga. Her video with Savannah showing viewers how to wear different natural hairstyles has almost one million views.
