Just when you thought the life of back-to-back NBA champion LeBron James couldn’t get any better, he went out and proved us all wrong again.
Over the weekend, King James married his longtime girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, in a — relatively — small but lavish ceremony at the Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego. The guest list included NBA stars Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony, as well as teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Some other famous personalities like singer Ne-Yo and actress Gabrielle Union also made an appearance, but the wedding’s musical act blew these other guests out of the water.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé surprised and dazzled the crowd with a special performance of their 2003 hit “Crazy in Love.” Not bad for a wedding band, huh?
James outdid himself again, pulling the music world’s greatest couple away from their busy lives to perform a single song for the newlyweds. Beyonce flew in all the way from Brazil, where she had a concert on Thursday. Oh, and she flew all the way back to South America for another show the very next day.
Man, it’s good to be King.
But it’s not like James is undeserving of these luxuries. With four MVP awards in the last five years and two rings to his name (three if you count his new wedding band), James is at the height of his powers and may be the best player the NBA has seen since Michael Jordan.
So I guess that’s what it takes to warrant Jayonce’s wedding services. Where can King James go from here? Here’s a list of a few things James could do to in the next year to enhance his reputation.
Suit up for both the Miami Heat and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Might as well try to make everyone happy.
Become player-coach. Do you really think current Heat coach Erik Spoelstra understands the game as well as James? And while he’s at it, James could probably put on a pretty good halftime show, too.
Use his incredible athleticism for good: Become a superhero, combining Hulk-like strength with Flash-caliber speed to fight crime.
Emulate his pal Jay-Z and release a rap album.
On second thought, bad idea.
Maybe James doesn’t do everything all that well, but his past two years have come as close to basketball perfection as it gets. So congrats, King and Queen James, you’re the new first couple of basketball.
