Yet claim her kind is rare.

LeBron James, one of the world’s most decorated basketball players, just surpassed Kareem Abdul Jabar’s scoring record, to become the NBA’s all-time leading scorer.

Many stars, including Kareem, were in attendance along with LeBron’s family and friends to witness history.

That night and the day after, his wife Savannah was trending on Twitter. Tweets flooded in from her stunning beauty to how great of a wife and supporter she’s been to LeBron — aiding in his success.

One person even tweeted how she’s the Michele Obama of the NBA — given how she carries herself with such grace and class.

The tweets that really catch my eye are from men who say how rare of a woman she is. And how women today with similar attributes are virtually nonexistent.

I know this isn’t the mindset of every man. However, it is the mindset of enough men and is cause for concern.

Savannah James is a natural beauty. I’ve seen her without the glam in interviews, and she seems just as beautiful inside as out. A small-town, down-to-earth girl who just so happened to meet and begin dating in high school, one of the future greatest players of all time.

She was a regular smegular. And to some extent, still is.

The glam is what we see in times of appearances, events, etc. Not what is the reality of her day-to-day life.

Yet, at her best, she becomes the epitome of what women should be that men claim to want but can’t “find”.

The saying, “You’re not ugly, you’re just broke,” applies here. In no way am I implying she’s unattractive. With a husband who earns an average of 42 million a year, one can’t deny the top-notch access she has to beauty, clothing, and cosmetic services and products.
