NBA Rumors: LeBron James' wife wants to live in San Diego or Akron

When it comes to having a happy home, LeBron James knows that starts with making your wife content. The Miami Heat superstar who is facing potential free agency has already stated such, suggesting that if his family is happy then he is happy.

That might not be the best news for fans of James’ Miami Heat as according to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio, Lebron’s wife Savannah prefers to live in San Diego or Akron.

“Perhaps playing a bigger role will be James’ wife, Savannah. Sources said Miami is not on the top of her wish list when it comes to places to live. San Diego and her hometown of Akron are said to be higher. Savannah does not want to live in New York, sources said.”

San Diego nor Akron have NBA teams, of course, though Akron isn’t exactly far from the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Staples Center, home to the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers is nothing more than a half-hour helicopter ride from ‘America’s Finest City’. Hell, James could make a pit stop by Kobe Bryant’s Southern California home considering Bryant himself is rumored to take a helicopter to games, though, that’s never been confirmed.

Then again, James has always hinted at the idea of playing in the NFL and previously stated that he’d like to play at least a single down before he retires, so maybe Savannah is gearing up her husband for a career change and he’s soon to sign with the San Diego Chargers as their newest tight end? I mean, Antonio Gates is getting up there….

In all seriousness, it’s likely nothing but hot air though we’ve seen players and/or coaches pick franchises with the ‘assistance’ of their better half before, so it can’t be completely ignored.

    San Diego is amazing.
    This will be a very interesting offseason. And it wouldn’t surprise me if Mitch has some aces up his sleeve.
    Any of the following would suffice -
    Trade (Buy) Mid 1st round Pick for Sarac or future PG or SF.
    Trade: #7 pick for K.Irving.
    Sign Lebron
    Sign Melo
    Poach Bledsoe
    Poach Monroe

    And, I expect if the money is available:
    L.Stephenson (as PG – Combo)
    Deng/Ariza (As SF)
    Okafor/Hill (As C)

      hilarious… we all can dream though…

      it’s not like i wouldn’t want the same (maybe minus Melo) for LA…

    It would be nice to see him back in Cleveland, but I highly doubt he leaves Miami.

    New York – No
    Chicago – No
    Dallas – No
    Los Angeles (Clippers) – Maybe, But Highly Unlikely

    Anyway, here is an interesting piece on why he should return to Cleveland.
