Gilbert Arenas talks about LeBron James

During a recent interview, Gilbert Arenas talked about a very interesting story involving LeBron and himself. When Arenas visited James’ house, he describes his TV setup. “He’d sit on a couch and have a tv which looked like a bar. His tv setup was like a bar where you’re just watching games.”

Talking about how LeBron James prepares for games, Arenas mentions, “The first time I met him, he’s watching seven things at once, soccer, high school basketball, college girl basketball, NBA. I mean you just sitting there watching a machine and I’m sitting there playing cards. He got a little pad right here with a film going on, he is rewinding it and taking notes, his wife is taking notes. You know his girlfriend at the time and I’m just sitting here like, wow that’s different.”

James has mentioned repeatedly how his wife has played a big part in his career. This incident, narrated by Gilbert Arenas, further proves it.

The two lovers have been dating since they were in high school. Although it’s been eight years since their marriage, they have been dating for two decades. The first time they met was during a high school basketball game, where Savannah was a cheerleader for the team playing against LeBron.

Savannah has been beside LeBron through all their difficulties. James finally popped the question to her during New Years’ Eve 2011 and he apparently made Dwyane Wade hold the ring all night long.

LeBron James mentioned his feelings before the proposal during an interview with Oprah Winfrey. “I was nervous. It felt like before a finals game.”
