First Look: How LeBron James Proposed to His High School Sweetheart

Even pro-basketball stars get nervous around women.

NBA star LeBron James will appear this Sunday on Oprah's "Next Chapter," and in a preview clip, James tells the host about the lead up to his proposal to his high school sweetheart, Savannah Brinson.

"I was nervous. It felt like before a finals game," James told Oprah.

James proposed to Brinson at a New Year's Eve celebration last year and, just like for a finals game, he asked his teammates to help him prepare for the big moment. Throughout the party, fellow Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade held the $300,000 engagement ring that James planned to give to Brinson.

"I didn't want her to bump up against me and felt [sic] the ring," James said.

Brinson said "yes" to the proposal and flaunted her sparkler at a Heat game after the New Year. James and Brinson have yet to announce a date for their wedding.

The pair have been together for eight years and have two sons together, Bryce and LeBron, Jr.
