Jay-Z, Beyonce Support Lebron James At ‘Sportsman Of The Year’ Ceremony

By Henna Kathiya

Jay-Z has developed a great relationship with Lebron James over the years, and on Wednesday night (December 5) both he and Beyonce attended the 2012 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year ceremony in NYC to honor his big win.

The Miami Heat star attended the award presentation with his fiancée Savannah Brinson on his arm at Espace in NYC. The Carters joined in to honor their good friend, who didn’t hide his excitement by tweeting a picture of him and his fiancé on the way to the event with the caption, “I’m good.”

Both Jay-Z and LeBron looked dapper in their clean cut suits while the ladies added color, with Savannah wearing a purple mesh cut-out dress and Bey wearing a red pantsuit. Pictures from the even show the foursome sitting up front with James’ US Olympic Team coach Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski.

James is the first Heat player to win the award since teammate Dwayne Wade took the title in 2006. It comes as no surprise given that he became an NBA champion for the first time, won the NBA Finals MVP trophy, helped the U.S. win Olympic gold for the second time and picked up his third NBA MVP award this year.

The NBA baller was all smiles throughout the night. It’s not hard to smile when you’re being honored for Sportsman of the Year, having the Hov and Bey there to cheer you on. He posted a picture on Twitter of the four of them posing together with the comment “Jay, @baddiebey, @savannahrb & myself. #Clique #itsjustdifferent#grownandsexy.” LeBron even tweeted a picture of himself standing next to Jay and his US Olympic coach, “My 2 mentors in life! K & Jay.” If that’s not precious I don’t know what is.
