LeBron James and JJ Redick are back with episode 8 of their podcast series, Mind the Game. Although their primary focus was on discussing the Conference Finals, that could wait as Savannah had to make a small intervention. The crew waited until Savannah was done giving the finishing touches to her husband’s appearance with Redick later giving a green signal, “Alright! We’re good!

For a few seconds at the beginning of the episode, Savannah James was fixing her husband’s cap, which blocked his face from being fully visible on camera. While she fixed his cap while moving it a few inches higher, LeBron reminded her, “We’re recording.” LeBron and Redick just sat there making funny faces at each other.

But then Savannah is quick to respond with, “Hey, I made the pod. I’m just tryna help!”

This hilarious bit is driving fans crazy, as people get to see the power couple in the most intimate of moments, frolicking around each other like they would have behind the scenes. But what we get more insight from this small bit is that Savannah also probably owns LeBron and JJ Redick’s podcast or maybe, she’s the brains behind this marvelous series.

After all, Savannah James is an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a podcaster, and an Instagram influencer, and not just the NBA legend, LeBron James’ wife. She’s so much more than that. With an estimated net worth of $100 million, she’s managing not just a family but also a furniture line, a skincare line, her husband’s tequila business, and a lot more.

Savannah James has been with LeBron since the time when he had “absolutely nothing”

The “I’m tryna help you” bit from the beginning of the Mind the Game podcast is a testament to the spirit Savannah holds in her family. She is a Wonder Woman for the James clan, with a lot on her plate. From managing successful ventures globally to managing a handful family, she does everything like a pro.

Not a lot of people know that Savannah’s the reason LeBron James is LeBron James today. The King credits his Queen for all the success he’s had so far since the beginning of their relationship almost 22 years ago. LeBron once told the Hollywood Reporter how Savannah used to show up to his shooting practices and to his gym practices. She was the one rooting for him when he was a nobody before entering the NBA.

Savannah was with me shooting in the gym when I [had] absolutely nothing. [Savannah] was down when I was at my high school, no cameras, no lights. And she was there with me. You wouldn’t be talking to me right now if it weren’t for her. And she was there with me. You wouldn’t be talking to me right now if it weren’t for her,” 

Today, Savannah is the rule-maker of the James clan. She sets the boundaries in their home. And LeBron is completely in agreement with his Queen. He says since he is mostly away on games, coming home after almost 2 weeks or so, and then telling his children the “rules” wouldn’t make a lot of sense. Seems like she’s not just an influencer on the internet but a true one at home, too.

2023 marked the 10-year anniversary of LeBron and Savannah James. In an interview with The Cut, Mama James shared a moment when her youngest Zhuri was just 7. They were curled up on a sofa watching TV when Zhuri turned around and said, “Mommy, I want to be like you. you dress so good and you do your makeup so good and you’re just so cool and you can dance.”

Even though she started her family at a young age, her devotion toward her children and her marriage is admirable. So, if she’s fixing her husband’s cap before his podcast begins, by all means, the Queen has earned every right to do so!
