LeBron James is lucky to have had a core group of trusted people around him since high school. Helping guide and shape the best player in the NBA takes a team, and outside of The Decision, they've done an impressive job.

James and Brinson are high school sweethearts with two children together. The first, LeBron James Jr., was born on October 6, 2004, and the second, Bryce Maximus James, on June 14, 2007.
LeBron caught reporters off guard when referring to Brinson as his wife one night as their unmarried status is widely known. When James was asked why he to Brinson as his wife, he said:
“Same difference: wife, girlfriend. When she’s living with you, she’s your wife. When she isn’t living with her mother anymore, she’s your wife.”
