LeBron's longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, discusses life off the court, the move to Miami, and her relationship with the basketball icon, in her first interview, in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. Savannah poses in New York City, with sons LeBron Jr., five, who shows off his basketball skills, and Bryce Maximus, three.
 
Savannah Brinson, long-time girlfriend of basketball phenom LeBron James, has just finished her first major photo shoot. For this low-key girl from Akron, Ohio, it was quite the heady experience. James is used to this sort of attention, she says. She, on the other hand, is decidedly not. "I've always been in the background," she says, having changed back into her white track suit with bedazzled hearts for a bowl of spaghetti at Manhattan's Serafina restaurant. As she slowly twirls her pasta, she looks both wide-eyed and incredulous. "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, but clearly I was mistaken," she says.
 
Here are some highlights from the interview:
 
Savannah, on the move to Miami: "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," she explains. "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." 
 
LeBron on Savannah Brinson: "A person like myself always needs a great sidekick and a person you can rely on no matter the circumstances. And she's that," he says. "She's got my back, and I love her for that."  
 
Savannah says a wedding is not on the horizon :  "I've definitely not put a fire under his ass," she says. "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 Jr.: "I'm going to play in the NBA," he announces proudly. Brinson explains, "He sees his dad playing and he thinks it's cool. But he can do whatever he wants to do in life. He doesn't have to walk in his father's footsteps."

 

LeBron Sr. says that he would be thrilled to see his sons play ball: "Well, like any father, I would hope that they would follow in my footsteps. That would be a great story—and as a father, I would be on cloud nine every day. Ultimately, though, only the big man above knows their future. They do have lots of talent, though."
