MIAMI - Congratulations came pouring in, but not for the New Year. The well wishes were for LeBron James, who reportedly popped the question to long-time girlfriend Savannah Brinson during LeBron's birthday party.
Fellow NBA stars, as well as other well-wishers, filled LeBron's twitter account with congratulations. A representative for James confirmed the news to The Associated Press on Sunday morning, a few hours after close friend Chris Paul and Miami Heat owner Micky Arison were among those tweeting their congratulations
The former Cavalier star, who turned 27 last week, has been with Brinson since high school. The couple has two children, LeBron Jr., who is seven, and Bryce, who is four.
No announcement has been made as to where, or when, the wedding will be.
