Savannah James Says Keeping a Peaceful Home is Key To Keeping LeBron Relaxed

The 2013 ESPY Awards - Audience

While most athletes’ wives tend to be in the public eye because of their husbands celebrity status, LeBron James wife, Savannah, has always kept a low profile and has rarely taken part in any types of interviews since LeBron entered the league.

In a recent (and rare) interview with Essence Magazine, Savannah was asked what she does to make sure LeBron is relaxed and rested during a grueling NBA season to help him keep being successful.

You have been an integral part of LeBron’s success. What has been your strategy?

“I’m his support system with whatever he needs. If he needs someone to listen to him. If he needs to talk or if he says, “Hey babe, I’m tired. Can I take a nap?” I will say “Yeah, baby. Take a nap,” and keep the kids occupied. It’s a part of the role that I play as the mother of his kids and being his wife. The balance that I create in our house is for his success. He is very busy and I understand that, and the kids are at the age now that they get it. Being there for him is a huge part of his success.”

You’ve been so strategic in how you share and what you share of your family on social media. What’s your approach?

“I do what feels right. I’m a very private person in general. With all the social media outlets, I feel like I have the choice to show you what I want to show you.”

Most don’t realize it was Savannah that gave LeBron the okay to return their family back to Cleveland and play for the Cavs. Clearly, it worked out.
