Wife establishes business roots in S. Florida
Is this a "tell" in LeBron's ultimate 2014 decision? Probably not, but his family's South Florida roots are at least a little bit deeper with his wife opening a juice bar in Miami.
As Savannah James has hinted at with recent Instagram posts, ESPN has now confirmed that she will be opening The Juice Spot in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami the first week of December.
Saturday, on his Instagram account, LeBron posted, "Look at u@mrs savannahrj!!! U go girl. Big ol STAR now! So proud of u, more than u may even know. #MyWifeIsPrettyCoolandSexy #BusinessWoman #StriveForGreatnessRunsInTheFamily."
"The idea of selling juice, Savannah James said, came from making healthy potions with her trainer to get in shape for the couple's wedding in September.
"James said her husband will stand behind her, but that this will very much be her own project.
" 'LeBron's connection to my company is that he supports me,' she said. 'But this going to my baby.' "
Of course, it is far easier to run a Miami-based business from Miami.

Oddsmaker says James will stay in '14

By contrast Bovada.lv is offering 11-to-5 odds for those willing to wager that LeBron will not be with the Heat a year from now.
